Oticon More - A New Perspective In Hearing Care
This year Oticon has launched a new, revolutionary hearing aid called Oticon More, which is the world’s first hearing aid that allows users to hear all relevant sounds thanks to an on-board new BrainHearing™ technology, i.e. Deep Neural Network (DNN).
Less is more has been the industry’s way to treat hearing loss. Conventional technology suppresses the sound scene. With its directionality, noise reduction, feedback management, and traditional compression, conventional hearing aids suppress the natural sound input and deliver a poor neural code to the brain. Not only does this cut people off from their surroundings, it goes against the brain’s natural way of working.
An Entirely New Way To Support Hearing Loss
More is more for the brain. The new Oticon More makes use of the new BrainHearing™ technology to provide users access to clear sound scenes in which the meaningful sounds are in balance and stand out from the background. With the innovations in the hearing technology, i.e. MoreSound Intelligence™, MoreSound Amplifier™ and MoreSound Optimizer™, the brain can get access to more of the full sound scene, so that users can better focus on what matters to them without losing track of the meaningful sounds happening around them.
Powered By The New Polaris™ Platform
- 16 times more capacity to execute advanced algorithms
- Intelligent use of industry-leading 64-channel processing
- Twice as much computation capacity and speed
- Deep Neural Network processing (DNN)
- Double the precision in 1.5-5kHz frequency bands
Deep Neural Network (DNN)
The intelligent DNN to mimic the human brain. It handles sounds based on the experience and training it has received. This optimizes the way Oticon More makes sounds more distinct, working seamlessly across varying listening environments. Oticon More has learned to recognize all types of sounds, their details, and how they should ideally sound – all in order to optimally support the brain. The DNN in Oticon More is so much more than a standard Artificial Intelligence software. It’s a unique and dedicated hearing aid solution, developed for real-time operation in everyday life.
* A Deep Neural Network (DNN) trained with 12 million real-life sound scenes enables virtually all sounds in the world to be handled precisely and automatically.
A Quantum Leap In Sound Scene Processing
Oticon More features the latest hearing aid technology – MoreSound Intelligence™ – which captures and optimizes sounds. This provides access to the complete sound scene, where individual sounds stand out in clear contrast to each other.
Giving Precisely Balanced Amplification Of Every Sound
MoreSound Amplifier™ is our newest hearing aid technology – a trailblazing, balanced amplification system. It works precisely and quickly to ensure that important details and dynamics are made audible and available for people with hearing loss.
For Even Better Speech Understanding With Even Less Effort
Studies show Oticon More increases speech understanding by 15% when compared to Oticon Opn S.** Meanwhile, Oticon More is also proven to reduce listening effort, enabling people to remember even more of what’s being said.** In fact, this is only possible with the technological innovation of DNN.
