Oticon Announces Expanded Oticon More Family of Hearing Aids Available Through Veterans Administration

SOMERSET, NEW JERSEY – Oticon, Inc. continues to expand the Oticon More™ family to enable even more veterans and active duty personnel to benefit. Now available through the Veterans Affairs Administration, Department of Defense and other federal agencies, the new Oticon More miniRITE T with disposable batteries and the portable SmartCharger “allow VA and government audiologists to better match each patient’s lifestyle, needs and preferences”.

The new rechargeable Oticon CROS PX transmitter, compatible with Oticon More, extends the Oticon CROS family for veterans with single-sided deafness.

The Oticon More is the world’s first hearing solution to incorporate an on-board Deep Neural Network (DNN), and is said to work more like how the brain works because it learns through experience.

“This new approach to sound processing delivers a sound quality that clinical test results show 8 out of 10 people prefer* With more styles, more features, and more charging options, the expanded Oticon More family empowers VA audiologists to bring outstanding sound quality to even more veterans.”

–Rob Zimmer, Director of Government Services for Oticon, Inc.

 

More Styles, More Options for Veterans

 

For veterans who prefer disposable batteries, the new Oticon More miniRITE T style joins the existing rechargeable miniRITE R style.

Both contain a telecoil and Bluetooth® Low Energy technology for device connectivity. The new MicroShell further expands patient options, offering an integrated, custom mold option for non-power receivers.

 

The new, easy-to-use Oticon SmartCharger allows veterans to enjoy more life on the go while keeping Oticon More powered up, dry and protected.

The SmartCharger includes a protective lid and built-in power bank for convenient, reliable charging without access to a power outlet. The drying function automatically removes moisture from the hearing aids.

 

Next Generation Connectivity

 

Oticon More miniRITE T and Oticon More miniRITE R feature Bluetooth® Low Energy technology and offer an extensive range of connectivity options to support high-quality listening in everyday situations.

Oticon More is a Made for iPhone® (MFi) hearing aid and compatible with the new Android™ protocol for Audio Streaming for Hearing Aids (ASHA), making it possible to stream directly from Apple and selected Android mobile devices.**

Oticon More can be combined with Oticon ConnectClip to stream from any other Bluetooth device.

 

Dual-streaming for Single-Sided Deafness with CROS PX

 

The new rechargeable Oticon CROS PX solution joins the non-rechargeable Oticon CROS. TwinLink™ dual streaming technology in both solutions allows patients to access all relevant sounds in challenging listening environments and enjoy wireless streaming at the same time.

In addition to Oticon More-compatibility, the new Oticon CROS PX transmitter is forward and backwards compatible with hearing aids used with the current Oticon CROS including Oticon More, Oticon Opn S™, Oticon Opn Play™, Oticon Xceed, Oticon Xceed Play and Oticon Ruby***.

 

More Optimal Fitting from the Start

 

Continuous improvements to Oticon Genie 2 enable hearing care professionals to fit and fine-tune Oticon More across in-clinic and remote visits. The new Fitting Assistant provides a guided questionnaire and pre-programed fitting adjustments. Genie 2 now includes new In-situ Audiometry for Oticon RemoteCare and new background noise level meter.

The ProbeGUIDE™ integration supports correct insertion and placement of the probe tube for more accurate fittings.

The new MyMusic program offers signal processing that helps capture “the complex dynamics of music much better than attempting to apply ordinary speech processing strategies to music”.
