Oticon Opn™ is powered by the new Velox™ platform. The tiny but powerful chip provides the ultra-fast and precise sound analysis and processing needed to support the brain’s ability to make sense of sound. Market-leading frequency resolution with 64 channels ensures that sounds are processed clearly and accurately to help you differentiate speech from noise. Velox scans the environment more than 100 times per second, handling more than 1,200 million operations per second. That’s fast enough to follow rapidly changing conversations with multiple speakers in noisy environments so you can locate, follow and switch focus to the sounds you want to hear.

With TwinLink™, for the first time, two dedicated communication systems operate in one hearing aid. One system lets your hearing aids talk to each other for accurate spatial awareness so you can identify where sounds are coming from. A second system communicates wirelessly with external devices such as iPhone®, smartphones, TV, computers and more.
The benefits of both systems are all yours - better hearing and hassle-free connectivity with low battery consumption.

OpenSound Navigator™ expertly manages multiple speech and noise sources so you can focus on a conversation while staying attentive to people and things around you and switch focus to what you want to hear. Traditional hearing technology enhances one speaker in the front and closes down all other sounds. OpenSound Navigator scans your environment 100 times per second to analyse and balance every sound individually, making them accessible but not disturbing so you enjoy a fuller, more natural soundscape.

Speech Guard™ LX preserves clear, transparent sound quality and speech details to improve your ability to understanding speech in noise. Follow conversations – from soft to loud – with less effort, even when multiple speakers are competing for your attention.
