SOMERSET, NJ – HearingLife is proud to announce they are offering the new Oticon Own™, the world’s first custom hearing aid with an onboard Deep Neural Network. Oticon Own comes in a full range of discreet styles, from full shells down to our smallest invisible IIC hearing aids, to match your personal preferences.
Life-changing technology in an in-the-ear hearing aid
The new Oticon Own is a fully customized in-the-ear hearing aid that works more like your brain because it learned through experience.* Built using BrainHearing™ technology and designed for discreetness, Oticon Own offers a truly personalized listening experience.
“Oticon Own is a big upgrade for current custom hearing aid users,” said Dr. Leslie Soiles, Chief Audiologist for HearingLife. “Not only is the onboard technology the best Oticon has to offer, but the wide range of sizes and colors available mean that those who want a discreet hearing aid can get one.”
Oticon Own is the world’s smallest hearing aid with a Deep Neural Network (DNN) embedded on the chip.* The DNN was trained on 12 million real-life sounds to give your brain more of the information it needs to make sense of sound. This means that even when you are in a complex listening environment – like a restaurant, or a meeting at the office – Oticon Own will help you navigate what you need to hear, and reduce your listening effort**, so it’s easier for your brain to take on other tasks. That means your devices do the work for you, enabling you to enjoy what’s happening around you and getting the most out of your connection to the world and loved ones.
Discreet in-the-ear hearing aid — made for you
“There’s no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to hearing aids – that’s why HearingLife takes the time with every customer to complete a full hearing assessment, discuss lifestyle and preferences and recommend the hearing aid that will help each person achieve their best hearing potential,” said Soiles. “Adding the Oticon Own range of options to our offices gives us even more ways to help more people hear better.”
With styles ranging from a full shell down to the smallest IIC (invisible-in-the-canal), there is an Oticon Own style to suit your individual needs. For ultimate discreetness, the IIC is completely invisible for 9 out of 10 ears.1 Now you can focus on what matters most with complete confidence.
