Looking for a new hearing device? Something current, fast, and powerful? The Oticon More™ line of hearing aids — designed to support your brain — might be the right path for you. Oticon More devices are the company’s newest aids, utilizing their trademark BrainHearing™ technology as well as a new onboard Deep Neural Network (DNN).
Deep Neural Network — What Is It?
This new DNN tech is, essentially, hearing aid training, embedded on a chip inside. “The DNN in Oticon More is trained with 12 million sounds from real-life to recognize virtually all types of sounds to support your brain.” What this does is stimulate natural sound processing and growth.
“‘With Oticon More, wearers receive a more natural representation of all sounds,’ says Donald Schum, Ph.D., Vice President of Audiology, Oticon, Inc. ‘The DNN in Oticon More has learned the way the brain learns… Every sound that passes through the hearing aid is compared to the results discovered in the learning phase. This enables Oticon More to provide a more natural, full and precisely balanced sound scene, making it easier for the brain to perform optimally.’”
Simply put: with this neural network you get “better speech understanding with less effort and the ability to remember more, even in noisy environments.”
Deep Neural Network — Why Is It Important?
“Hearing is thinking.” The way your aids process sound is crucial to how you interpret the world around you. And what Oticon is offering is a device that can not only mimic your processing and comprehension abilities but evolve over time.
The Oticon More hearing aid connects directly to select iPhone® and Android™ devices and can even stream audio from your TV with Oticon’s own TV adapter. Using an app you can download directly to your smartphone, you can even control audio levels and functionality hands-free.
If you’ve had enough of batteries, you can opt for the Oticon More miniRITE R, an aid that can give you a full day of use after only a 3-hour charge.
