Oticon Hearing Aids
We are very proud to offer Oticon hearing aids to our customers in Gettysburg and surrounding areas.. Oticon was founded in 1904 in Denmark by Hans Demant, with the mission of “People first.” Demant traveled to England in the early 20th century to obtain hearing aids for his wife, who was hard of hearing. Upon experiencing first-hand the beneficial effects of hearing aids, Demant worked tirelessly to develop hearing instruments for others in Denmark.
Now with over a century in experience, Oticon has applied their company mission to groundbreaking innovation in hearing aids. Oticon is responsible for a number of industry firsts: DigiFocus, the world’s first fully digital hearing device; MultiFocus, the world’s first fully automatic hearing device; and Adapto, the world’s first artificial intelligence equipped hearing aid.
With research and development from the Ericksholm Research Institute, Oticon hearing aids embody a combination of heightened personalization of hearing aid features and cutting edge technology that continues to push the envelope for hearing aid design. Oticon’s BrainHearing Technology is rooted in the science that hearing happens in the brain.

As a result, BrainHearing Technology supports the brain’s process in hearing.
BrainHearing Technology is achieved with four main elements from Oticon: Spatial Sound, FreeFocus, SpeechGuard E, and YouMatic. SpatialSound helps Oticon hearing aid wearers locate sounds in their environment, while FreeFocus allows them to choose what sounds to focus on.
SpeechGuard E improves speech recognition, especially in noise environments, while YouMatic offers personalization for people to meet specific hearing needs.
Oticon Opn Hearing Aids
In spring 2016, Oticon introduced a brand-new hearing aid: the Opn (pronounced “open”). Powered by the Velox platform, Opn is an “open sound solution which offers wearers more ease in listening. Oticon reports that wearers experience 20% reduction of listening effort in noisy situations, and 20% more capacity to remember in challenging situations and 30% better speech understanding and clarity in noise. This is achieved by providing the brain with a clearer sound signal, so that it may focus freely on other aspects of noise. With a 64-band frequency resolution, Opn provides wearers with more precise sound analysis and better sound quality.
OpenSound Navigator Environmental Analyzer is a new feature found with the Opn. This feature scans the listening environment 100 times per second, analyzing and balancing every sound. This gives wearers a richer sound picture, allowing them to choose the sounds they want to focus on. As a result, wearers have a more natural listening experience. Additionally, Opn has TwinLink technology, two wireless communications systems in one hearing aid. Opn hearing aids utilize near-field magnetic communication technology to simulate natural, binaural hearing. At the same time, Opn hearing aids are compatible with a number of personal electronic devices to increase accessibility to phone calls, music, and other media.
And, in line with Oticon’s innovative tradition, the Opn is the first hearing aid to connect to the Internet! By connecting through the web service If This Then That (IFTTT.com), Opn wearers have access to a wide range of sounds experienced in everyday life, from doorbells to baby monitors. For all of the technology provided by the Opn, this device has a surprisingly long battery life. The Opn is available as a discreet, mini receiver-in-canal (RIC) hearing aid.
