Oticon introduces hearing aids for severe-to-profound hearing loss

Oticon, Inc. has introduced the world´s most powerful hearing aids to its portfolio of advanced hearing solutions, the company said.

Designed for adults and children with severe-to-profound hearing loss, Oticon Xceed and Oticon Xceed Play provide a 360-degree sound experience, giving wearers more access to speech with less listening effort.

For individuals with single-sided deafness (SSD), the company has also unveiled Oticon CROS, a powerful new wireless solution that opens up a wearer to sounds from all directions.

Built on Oticon´s most advanced platform, Oticon Xceed and Oticon Xceed Play scan a wearer´s surroundings 100 times per second to support how the brain naturally makes sense of sound. Built-in BrainHearing™ technology analyzes sounds from all directions, distinguishes between speech and background noise, and enables wearers to identify where sounds are coming from, creating a fuller, more natural hearing experience.

The result is that, compared to previous generations of hearing aids for severe-to-profound hearing loss, Oticon Xceed improves speech clarity by 10%, reduces listening effort by 10%, and increases short-term recall by 15%, even in challenging and noisy environments.*
