Center stage at the Oticon Exhibit (#1601) will be the newest Oticon hearing solutions built on the groundbreaking Polaris platform — offering more speed, precision, and capacity to help more patients enjoy a life full of sound.

In 2021, Oticon introduced Oticon More™, the first hearing aid built on the Polaris platform. Now Oticon expands the potential of Polaris with two new miniBTE solutions to give hearing care professionals the ability to meet the diverse needs and preferences of more patients with the superior sound quality of Oticon More.

Also on display, new Oticon Zircon brings the power of Polaris and the open sound experience to the essential hearing aid category for the first time. New Oticon Play PX is another first – the first pediatric hearing aid with an on-board Deep Neural Network that learned the way children learn, through experience. Oticon More, Zircon and Play PX support hands-free communication using select iPhone or iPad devices*.

Visitors to the Oticon exhibit can meet with the Oticon Government Services team to learn how Oticon serves the unique needs of US veterans through the Veterans Affairs Administration, Department of Defense and other federal agencies. Hearing care professionals looking for knowledge and tools to differentiate their practice, elevate their standard of care, and improve their profit and loss statement can explore Oticon’s practice-support tools and services, the industry’s gold standard for business support.

Audiology students are encouraged to stop by the Oticon exhibit to learn about Oticon’s ongoing programs to help students develop skills, build professional know-how and stay on track with what is new and noteworthy in the profession. Students can also obtain applications for the upcoming Oticon student event to be held in Orlando, July 20-23.
