Opn™ is Oticon’s newest hearing aid family. Running on Oticon’s new Velox™ Platform, the Opn™ will process data 50x faster than Oticon’s previous processing platform, “Inium Sense.” Oticon has also bumped the number of frequency processing channels to 64 and added an environmental analysis that runs in excess of 100x per second. Oticon claims that all this processing power has helped them to achieve better speech understanding, reduced listening effort, and an increase the ability to remember conversations.
Aside from processing improvements the Oticon Opn™ miniRITE is the first Oticon hearing have direct iPhone connectivity. This means no more intermediary device necessary to stream audio, phone calls, etc, from your iPhone (or compatible iOS device).
