Oticon announced its newest Opn™ Custom hearing aid solutions, now available through the Veterans Affairs Administration (VA), Department of Defense, and other federal agencies. With the addition of five new custom styles, including what’s said to be “the smallest hearing aid style Oticon has ever produced,” the Opn family will expand its open sound experience in styles and performance levels to satisfy a wide range of veterans’ hearing needs and preferences. All Opn solutions use BrainHearing™ technology and Opn’s technology to support the brain in making sense of sound and helping to enable users to identify where sounds are coming from, even in challenging environments.
“The comprehensive Oticon Opn family provides a single source for quality solutions that empower VA audiologists to increase patient success and satisfaction,” said David Horowitz, director, Oticon Government Services. “Like all Opn hearing aids, Opn Custom hearing aids break through some of the biggest challenges faced by people with hearing loss: Understanding speech in noise and handling multiple speakers.”
Zero Compromise on Quality, Reliability, Performance
The variety of Opn Custom styles, functionalities, and features combined with Oticon’s open-sound experience help to provide more choices for veterans, especially those who are reluctant to try hearing aids, according to Oticon’s announcement. The custom lineup includes fully featured styles with 2.4 GHz low-energy Bluetooth® connectivity that offers several wireless possibilities. All components are miniaturized to enable more functionality in less space. The effect and availability of Opn Custom features varies with hearing aid style and prescription.
Efficient, Accurate Fittings with Verifit®LINK
Oticon now brings the VerifitLINK built-in software interface to VA audiologists. With a single click of a button, Genie 2 communicates with the new tool to measure, automatically adjust, and verify for a more efficient and accurate fitting. Audiologists can help maintain full control with the option to fine-tune and verify to further personalize the fitting. Patients may experience a more comfortable fitting and optimum hearing aid benefit through a verified fitting. VerifitLINK’s quick verification also helps to free up valuable time for counseling and validation that can further help to reduce return visits.
