Oticon Hearing Aid Models, Prices, & Reviews
Popular Oticon Hearing Aid Models
Oticon is no overzealous startup, but it isn’t an immovable institution either. It’s more of a seasoned veteran that knows where and when to move. Backed by a potent parent company (hearing industry giant William Demant Holdings), Oticon remains one of the most successful makers of hearing aids in the world. The tremendously popular Oticon Opn hearing aids are the latest evidence of this. Consumers have purchased more than a million units. Oticon also has a successful medical division best known for it’s Ponto bone-anchored hearing solutions, and more recent entry into cochlear implants.
History is important, but it’s Oticon’s focus on the future that keeps the company relevant. Since the 1970s, Oticon has owned and operated a research facility dedicated exclusively to studying hearing loss. It is here, at The Eriksholm Research Centre in Denmark, that Oticon scientists explore some of the most innovative ideas. Areas of research and development include cognitive science (how the brain perceives sound) and augmented hearing (selective amplification based what listeners want to hear) to take hearing aids far beyond simply making sounds louder.
Here is the bottom line: First, when you choose hearing aids from Oticon, you get cutting edge technology, designed by the best minds in the industry. Second, it’s not all about technology. Hearing aids are meant to help people, so including the right features is just as important as pushing the limits of technology. Getting the details just right is only possible when the designers and engineers appreciate what matters most to people living with hearing loss, and know how to provide authorized Oticon hearing care professionals with the right technology. After more than 100 years of experience, Oticon gets this better than most.
Whether you are considering hearing aids for the first time or upgrading from an older model, Oticon hearing aids make a fantastic choice. If you would like help or advice on choosing an appropriate Oticon device, please feel free to call us!
Opn S builds on the previous generation of Opn hearing aids with the introduction of a new processing platform called Velox S. Velox S is the fastest and most powerful processing platform Oticon has made. Opn S samples the sound environment a remarkable 56,000 times per second so the hearing aids can respond quickly and accurately to what's going on around you.
What difference does it make? Oticon says Velox S provides 15 percent better speech understanding in noise than the previous processor. According to the company’s research, this reduces the effort required to understand, saving mental energy and improving how well listeners remember what they hear. Opn S also brings improvements in feedback prevention, to stop whistling noise before it starts.
Oticon's TwinLink™ wireless technology lets the two hearing aids communicate with each other to effectively analyze the three-dimensional soundscape. It takes two hearing aids to get the most from Opn S, because only by working in pairs can they perform to their full potential. TwinLink enables the hearing aids to pinpoint the direction of multiple voices and more effectively tame the noise.
Oticon Opn S comes in four models to match different levels of hearing loss. Each model comes in three performance levels, with Opn S 1 standing at the top. The maximum noise reduction is three times greater with Opn S1 than with the base model, Opn S3. All models are wireless and some offer a telecoil option, and the smallest OPN S MiniRite style is the most popular in the OPN S family.
Oticon now offers a version of this hearing aid for children, called the OPN Play. OPN Play has all the features of the OPN S, with some additional functionality helpful for children and parents.
- Your top priorities are performance, performance, and more hearing performance. Note: these hearing aids perform best in pairs.
- You want an open fitting with open sound quality, and you hope to wear a hat or hug someone without the hearing aids whistling.
Oticon Opn S Rechargeable is a premium made-for-iPhone hearing aid designed to reduce listening effort in simple or complex listening situations.
Opn S R (shorthand) provides all the benefits of the OPN S (above) with the addition of quick-charging lithium-ion batteries. If you want the performance of Opn S but prefer disposable batteries, you have that option too with the non-rechargeable version.
Here are the three biggest improvements that we see in the Oticon Xceed, as compared to the previous power BTEs available from Oticon:
BrainHearing technology: Oticon has enjoyed tremendous success in recent years, due in large part to their release of their BrainHearing™ technology in 2014. BrainHearing™ technology is a suite of features which is proven to help your brain understand and process sound more easily. Now, this technology has finally made it's way to super power and ultra power BTE hearing aids, in the Oticon Xceed, allowing users with severe-to-profound hearing loss to enjoy all the benefits it provides.
2.4ghz connectivity: Oticon Xceed is Oticon's first high power BTE with 2.4 ghz connectivity, meaning it will connect directly with iPhones, and can connect to any other modern smartphone via the ConnectClip accessory. Finally, individuals with severe-to-profound hearing loss can wear Oticon hearing aids and benefit from the Bluetooth features available when hearing aids are paired to smartphones.
Improved feedback prevention: In march of 2019, Oticon introduced a new feature called, OpenSound Optimizer™, which handles whistling and static in a whole new way, preventing it from even happening. This new feature has been available in lower power hearing aids since that release, but has now made it's way to and is available in all Xceed models- giving users more power with less feedback.
Oticon Xceed is compatible with Oticon's full line of wireless accessories, so you can stream your favorite music and TV sound directly to both ears, enjoy hands-free phone calls, control your hearing aids via the Oticon ON App – and more.
Oticon OPN PlayOPN Play, released March of 2019, is Oticon's newest kid-friendly hearing aid. This is an exciting new release for Oticon, as their last pediatric hearing aid, Oticon Sensei, was released in 2013. Though Sensei is still a really popular pediatric hearing aid, we're pleased to see Oticon's pediatric hearing aid be updated with the newest technology they have to offer.
There are several key improvements with OPN Play as compared to the earlier Sensei model:
Built on the new Velox S platform: Earlier hearing aids usually presented one of two problems to the wearer. They either captured too much sound, overwhelming the wearer with distracting, non-essential sound, or, they made the field of sound too narrow, reducing the individual's ability to hear important and relevant sound that wasn't coming from directly in front of them. Oticon has found remarkable success in the past few years, with a new feature called OpenSound Navigator. The goal of OPN Play hearing aids, as the name implies, is to “open” the sound environment and give a child 360º access to the world so they can differentiate between meaningful sound and irrelevant, disturbing sound.
Made for iPhone & Rechargeable: OPN Play hearing aids are Made for iPhone®, which means they can connect directly to iPhones and iPads, allowing audio like phone calls, music, and more, to stream directly from these Apple devices with no intermediary Bluetooth adapter or streamer required. This Bluetooth connectivity also allows parents, teachers, and other caregivers adjust children's hearing aid volume and program or check the battery status from a smartphone through the Oticon ON App. The Opn Play miniRITE R offers a rechargeable lithium-ion solution in a discreet design, helping to eliminate the hassle of handling and replacing batteries every few days. The charger features a stable magnetic connection and delivers a full day of power, including streaming, with an overnight charge.
Less feedback: Thanks to improvements Oticon has made to their feedback reduction feature, Oticon says OPN Play can deliver more gain (volume), with less feedback (whistling). This enables children to play, hug, interact, and wear hats and helmets without feedback.
Aside from the above improvements, OPN Play also offers tamper resistant battery doors, an IP 68 water-resistance rating, and an LED light for visual confirmation that the battery is functioning properly.
OPN Play is available in 4 four different styles, for hearing losses ranging from mild to severe. These styles include the traditional behind-the-ear power style, the discreet miniRITE style (with optional telecoul), and the new miniRITE R, which offers state of the art lithium-ion rechargeability. OPN Play is available in 12 different colors, to discreetly completely hair and skin, or to be bright and colorful.
Oticon Hearing Aid Reviews
Any time you read a customer review on Oticon hearing aids, its important to note that a significant factor contributing to the customer`s review is the skill of the hearing provider who fit their hearing aids. For more information on this, we`d encourage you to check out our YouTube video: Do Hearing Aid Reviews Matter?
Product reviewed: Oticon Opn S Rechargeable 1
Sound quality is excellent. I am very satisfied with my hearing aids. It takes a little time to adjust to my hearing aids because I never had hearing aids before.The charger is very easy to use. The hearing aids are easy to clean. I do have to go back to my audiologist to get the sound in one hearing aid adjusted because I have ringing in my left ear. The hearing aid I selected seems to be of top quality.
Product reviewed: Oticon Opn S 1
These aids are great, sound quality is excellent and they're relatively comfortable. They also came with a three year replacement warranty/insurance program plus a years worth of batteries and other supplies. The provider was also very professional and helpful. I no longer feel left out of conversations.
Product reviewed: Oticon Opn S Rechargeable 2
The sound quality is as clear as a bell. Crisp and sharp. Now I see what I have been missing for several years. The hearing aids chosen are precision instruments, very sophisticated. The interface with ZipHearing was efficient and friendly. Delivery of services was as promised. I had choices of audiologists from which to select. Followup has been flawless.

While I am still in the trial period (about a month to go) the Oticon OPN1 has significantly improved my hearing in areas where it has substantially declined from three years ago. Of course, listening to the roar of crickets is a challenge. But I can understand my wife’s speaking a great deal better. I’ve been wearing Oticon products for 20 years and these are the best yet. I’m used to having a “streamer” to assist with cell telephone calls. The Bluetooth connection is working well for calls, though you must use the cell phone microphone to carry the sound of your voice unless you are using the ConnectClip. However, at least for me, the ConnectClip has not lived up to my expectations. I have a followup visit to see if there’s an issue with the hardware. So far it’s not a substitute for the “streamer.” In short, I’m happy with the improvement in my ability to hear and, most importantly, understand speech. It is one thing to hear a sound and another for your brain to be able to process and understand what those sounds are.

After several ear surgeries and a stroke I was hesitant to try more hearing aids, but I am so glad I did. I was especially concerned how they would work for me since I have a medium loss in one ear, a profound loss in the other, and the stroke makes it difficult to use my left arm. Research led me to choose 2 Oticon BTE hearing aids and they have been a blessing. I can now understand all of a conversation and listen to the TV at a volume comfortable for everyone. The sound quality is amazing and they are well built. I'm still learning all they can do but I know I made the right choice.

As a musician by profession, I'm very particular about my hearing and I have had three sets of Oticon hearing aids over the years. None is better than my present and newest model, Open S1. Crystal clarity and good balance between the two ears makes me feel as if I'm not wearing them at all. Congratulations Oticon!

Love the new hearing aids especially the bluetooth and apple ap. Voices are much clearer. They are pretty comfortable. Not sure yet about the battery life only had them for a couple of weeks. Would recommend the hearing aids and ziphearing to anyone.

Sound quality is excellent.. they are very comfortable to wear. Only Cons I can think is that they are not fully Bluetooth compatible i.e. you cannot connect to any device such as your laptop or non-ipad tablets, I was very happy with the Ziphearing customer service and they were able to ship my device within 24 hours. I am extremely happy with my local audiologist who is very customer centric and educated me on the hearing loss and how the hearing aids can help. He setup the device as per my lifestyle. I could not have asked for a better audiologist.

The sound quality is amazing. Just wonderful to hear the fountain for the first time since we moved. Also can hear the clock ticking. A little apprehensive about changing the plastic tips. Will stop by the doctor’s office for a review of the procedure. Love my hearing aids. Would recommend them to others.
Product reviewed: Oticon Opn S Rechargeable 1
I purchased Oticon opn 1 rechargeable. They perform well in a home environment and open areas. After several fine-tuning adjustments (a normal process), they help in a crowded area. My hearing loss is only in higher tones (approximately the range of a woman's voice). They help greatly, but some people talk so softly, I still miss some words in a conversation. Overall, I'm glad I made the purchase and the improved hearing.

Oticon hearing aid apps & accessories
Have you ever thought about controlling your hearing aids from your smartphone? If so, check out some of the Oticon apps below. Be sure to check compatibility of these apps with your phone or tablet, because some apps are built exclusively for iOS devices, others for Android devices, and the functionality that you get from these apps may vary depending on the type of phone or tablet you use. In addition, sometimes apps may be built exclusively for iPhones (for example), and may not work on iPads. So it`s very important to check compatibility of your devices before selecting your hearing aids based on the apps available from Oticon.
You should also consider some of Oticon`s accessories, such as TV streamers and remote microphones. Again, it is important to do your due diligence as far as compatibility. Not all Oticon hearing aids will work with all of the below Oticon accessories. To find compatibility information, find the Oticon hearing aid on our site that you are looking for, then scroll down and you will see a section on the product page which reviews this information.
If you need Oticon supplies, such as domes, filters, or cleaning tools, we recommend contacting the local Oticon provider who sold you your hearing aids. You may also sometimes find these parts relatively inexpensive on sites like Amazing and eBay. For accessories, we do not recommend buying them on sites like Amazon or eBay, as that is not an approved sales channel for most major manufacturers, and sellers on those sites are likely not authorized Oticon retailers. You can also of course always buy these accessories from the local hearing provider which sold you your Oticon hearing aids.
Please note: We are only able to sell accessories & parts of supplies to customers who have purchased hearing aids through ZipHearing.
