Oticon’s latest range of hearing aids the Alta2 Pro, Nera2 Pro and Ria2 Pro, are powered by Oticon’s Inium Sense Platform. The new sophisticated sound processor increases the processing power of Oticon’s proven BrainHearing™ technologies by 30% to deliver their purest sound signal. They say the result is a more natural listening experience with less effort and delivers up to 20% better soft speech understanding.

BrainHearing™: sound that makes more sense

Hearing care traditionally focuses on delivering audible sound at frequencies where the user has a hearing loss. But this approach has limitations if we want to ensure the brain can make sense of the sounds it receives.

This is why we have moved from an “ear first” to a “brain first” approach. Implementing BrainHearing technology to our Alta models has given impressive results:

– Traditional “ear-hearing” devices: 79% user satisfaction rating*
– BrainHearing™ technology: 96% user satisfaction rating**

 

Delivering what the brain needs
There are four functions the brain needs to carry out to make sense of the sound it receives:

– orient the different sounds, using both ears
– separate the sounds to be able to focus on desired source
– focus on what’s important, using both ears
– recognise what each sound is and make sense of it

 

BrainHearing is designed to deliver the right sounds to the brain so these four functions can be carried out. Working seamlessly across both ears, BrainHearing technology combines the following features:

Spatial Sound
Inium technology allows binaural processing, meaning both ears deliver more precise spatial information to the brain. This helps the brain orient the sounds and make spatial sense ofthe outside world.

Speech Guard
By prioritizing speech and preserving its characteristics, Speech Guard helps the brain recognise and separate speech sounds, making it easier to focus on conversations.

Free Focus
Working together with Spatial Sound and Speech Guard, Free Focus gives users a wide choice of directionality so they can focus on what’s important. This can be a vital help in challenging, noisy environments.

YouMatic
YouMatic tunes the hearing instruments to better adapt to an individual’s own interpretation of sounds. This can help you provide the right level of help to clients, so they can each make better sense of the sound they wish to access.

With each of these features working together, BrainHearing™ aims to gives a listening experience beyond that of traditional “ear-hearing” methods.
