Discover a solution that makes it easier for the brain to navigate in challenging everyday environments with better hearing, less stress, and more recall. Oticon hearing solutions with BrainHearing technology provide better hearing with less effort by giving the brain the clearest, purest signal to decode. BrainHearing technologies give hearing care professionals a powerful way to remind patients that Hearing Care Is Health Care™. When consumers understand that hearing happens in the brain and has the potential to impact overall health, including cognitive function, hearing instrument choice becomes a health care-driven decision instead of a lifestyle or technology choice.
