HearingLife is proud to announce that they are now offering the new Oticon More™, the first-ever hearing aid built with an onboard Deep Neural Network (DNN), to give people with mild-to-severe hearing loss a fuller, more balanced and effortless hearing experience. The hearing aid scans and analyzes the sound scene 500 times per second, capturing and processing the details of sound with better contrast, balance and clarity than ever before.

When people with hearing loss expend extra effort to listen, they often become more tired and then they are less active. In a recent study with over 1000 HearingLife customers, they shared the top 3 noticeable benefits from wearing hearing aids are a more active life, a more social life, and less listening effort. Oticon More is trained on 12 million real-life sounds to give the brain more of the information it needs to decipher the intricate details of sound. Through this experiential learning experience, it processes speech in noisy environments more like the human brain. As a result, people experience noticeably better speech understanding with less effort and the ability to remember more.

“With Oticon More, I’m experiencing a sense of effortless hearing regardless of what the soundscape is or where the sounds are coming from”

Dr. Leslie Soiles, Chief Audiologist, HearingLife

With Oticon More, I’m experiencing a sense of effortless hearing regardless of what the soundscape is or where the sounds are coming from, says Dr. Leslie Soiles, Chief Audiologist at HearingLife. Because of the Deep Neural Network (DNN), I’m personally experiencing improvement in my hearing and my ability to understand what the person is saying back has been improved by so much compared to other hearing aids.¹

More clarity. More hearing. More life.

HearingLife hearing care providers are thrilled to be able to offer this new life-changing technology to their customers. Oticon More with BrainHearing™ technology brings you closer to the sounds of life that should be heard, not missed. Built on Oticon’s most intelligent platform yet, Oticon More provides 30% more sound to the brain and improves speech understanding by 15%.

Did you know that even with mild, untreated hearing loss, your risk of dementia can double? In a 25-year study,² people with hearing loss but not using hearing devices had a higher risk of dementia. And since science shows that we hear with our brains and not our ears, having a hearing aid that supports your brain is all the more important.

Connectivity and convenience

With Oticon More customers can easily connect with a wide range of devices for a high-quality listening experience in everyday situations. The hearing aid supports direct streaming from iPhone® and select Android™ devices. For people who want the convenience of rechargeable batteries, Oticon More comes in a discreet lithium-ion based rechargeable style (miniRITE R) that provides a full day of battery life, including streaming, after just three hours of charging.* Plus, wearers can select from eight attractive colors to blend with a range of hair and skin tones.
