Do you know the level of your hearing loss?
To get an idea of your level of hearing loss, we suggest you book a free hearing test at your local hearing clinic. The consultation takes about an hour. After going through your results together, we’ll discuss your options so that we can tailor a solution specific to you.
Today’s advanced technology provides a more natural, 360-degree sound experience. But it also gives you higher sound clarity with less effort.
Tinnitus support settings are available, and today’s modern hearing aids can also reduce feedback (or the “whistling sound” that some users can experience).
Plus it’s possible to stream your smart devices and TV directly into modern hearing aids.
360-degree sound experience:
Some modern hearing aids (such as the Oticon Opn S) have the technology to provide you with a “360-degree sound experience”. This means you can focus mostly on the sounds directly around you or in front of you.
You get more sound clarity with less effort, and this technology makes it easier for you to better understand speech, whatever the setting.

We hear through our brains; our ears are merely responsible for picking up the soundwaves. It’s this fact that BrainHearing™ technology is based on.
BrainHearing™ by Oticon supports the brain’s natural process of making sense of sound by allowing the brain to hear in the most natural way possible.
And this in turn reduces fatigue.
BrainHearing™ technology gives you:
- open access to all speakers
- background noise reduction
- speech clarity
- sound localisation for improving focus
- personalised programming settings.
Feedback (often experienced as a whistling sound) can happen when acoustic signals escape the ear canal and then hit the microphone on the hearing aid. But feedback in modern hearing aids is much less common since new technology actively prevents it.
Many of those with hearing loss also experience symptoms of tinnitus. Recent technology allows you to listen to relief sounds through your hearing aids which help to soothe and decrease the annoyance of tinnitus.
Oticon offers a specific program called Tinnitus SoundSupport™. You can also choose to simply stream your favourite sounds from your smartphone into your hearing aids as a way to relieve tinnitus symptoms.
Learn how to get relief from tinnitus:
You can connect your hearing aids to mobile phones or tablets. This means phone conversations, music, or video audio can be heard directly through the hearing aids, so you can experience clear, high-quality sounds.
You can also connect your hearing aids to your TV and adjust the volume so that it can be as loud (or as quiet) as you want; meanwhile, your family members can enjoy the TV at the volume they want!
Some modern hearing aids use rechargeable batteries. Depending on how you use your hearing aids, three hours of charge could even be enough for a full day’s power.
Rechargeable batteries are economical in the long term and typically only need to be replaced every 3–5 years.
