Our Hearing Is Important

Our everyday situations and quality of life can be affected by hearing loss

Our hearing constantly supplies us with vital information, as well as causing us to experience emotions and recall memories. 

At Work:

  • Participating in group meetings
  • Talking on the phone
  • Following the conversation in a busy office

On social occasions:

  • Chatting with friends
  • Participating in dinner conversations at a restaurant
  • Interacting with grandchildren
  • Talking on the phone
  • Watching TV together with others

For our own safety:

  • When walking near busy roads
  • To be able to hear sounds that alert to danger like sirens and other traffic signals
  • So we can be alert to a cry for help

When we learn:

  • Allowing us to concentrate with little effort
  • So we are able to communicate with instructors
  • So we register information correctly

Inside Hearing Aids

In all hearing aids you'll find 5 basic components: microphones, an amplifier, a loudspeaker, a battery, and a computer chip that is programmed by the hearing professional to suit your individual needs.

Although all hearing aids have a similar construction, there can be significant differences in the quality of sound capture and speech understanding between different devices. The higher the quality of the hearing aid, the more natural the listening experience will be. This is because they offer features like bandwidth, automatic volume regulation, noise management, and feedback suppression.

The most advanced hearing aids also have a wide range of personalization options and the ability to connect wirelessly to a number of devices, such as mobile phones.

You will find the most advanced technology in the newer hearing aid models, and these improvements come at a cost. But you can feel assured that there are hearing aids available to suit all preferences and budgets. A hearing care professional can recommend a model based on the result of a hearing test and a conversation about your lifestyle and budget.

Old Technology

Deals with the complex and noisy environments like restaurants by focusing on only the sound in front, such as one person speaking. By reducing all other sounds - speech and noise alike - it leaves the wearer with a narrowed and artificial listening experience.

NEW Oticon Opn Technology
