Frequently Asked Questions
Yes! This hearing aid is available in a slightly larger style with a lithium-ion rechargeable battery. The rechargeable version is approximately $100 more per hearing aid.
The most noticeable benefit for most people is going to be performance in background noise. Opn S 1 removes up to 9 dB in background noise, versus 5 dB in the Opn S 2 model. In challenging listening environments, a few dB can make all the difference.
The biggest improvement with OPN S (according to Oticon literature), is a 15% improvement in speech clarity in noisy environments. While this may seem like an unremarkable or incremental improvement, it is important to note that Oticon had set the bar very high with the earlier Oticon Opn hearing aids, which were already among the highest-rated hearing aids for performance in background noise. Opn S also brings improvements in feedback prevention, to stop whistling noise before it starts.
Accessories & Smartphone Apps
ConnectClip: $225

ConnectClip has two features. First, it's most commonly used as a Bluetooth streamer that allows you to stream audio from your phone to your hearing aids. If you have an iPhone, you don't need this, because iPhones stream directly to Oticon hearing aids. If you have an Android or any other phone and you want to stream from your phone, you need this. Even if you have an iPhone, it still may make sense to get this, because it does allow for hands free phone calls. Wear it around your neck and the microphone picks up your voice for the person on the other end of the call to hear, so you don't have to hold you the phone to your mouth when speaking. The second feature of ConnectClip is its ability to work as a remote microphone. If you have a hard time hearing in noise this accessory is a lifesaver. Attach the ConnectClip to a companion's shirt and their voice will stream directly to your hearing aids. Their voice will come through much stronger than all the competing noise in the environment.

TV Adapter 3.0: $229

Plug it into the back of your TV or soundbar and the audio will be streaned directly to your hearing aids. Others can keep the TV at their preferred volume level, while you set your own volume via the app or on the hearing aids themselves.

Remote Control 3.0: $179

You probably don't need this. Most people use the app to control their hearing aids, and if not the app, then the push button on the hearing aid itself. But if neither of those suit you, this remote is a simple way to control the volume and program.

Oticon ON App

Take control of your hearing aids. Use the app to control settings like volume, program, background noise reduction and tinnitus relief sounds. Locate your hearing aids if you've lost them. Track valuable information on your hearing aid use, like wear time, and battery life.

In-Person & Local Hearing Aid Fitting & Programming Service

Based on the results of your hearing test, your local ZipHearing provider will professionally fit and fine-tune your hearing aids to your unique needs.

45 Day 100% Risk-Free Evaluation Period

Once your hearing aids have been fitted, you'll have 45 days to evaluate them. All appointments with your local provider during your 45 day evaluation period are included at no additional cost. If you decide to return your hearing aids within the evaluation period, you'll be issued a 100% refund.

Follow-up Care

All follow up service appointments during your first year of ownership are included at no additional cost. After that time, your local ZipHearing provider may bill you privately for services at a rate not-to-exceed $50 per appointment.

3 Year Full Manufacturer Warranty

This hearing aid will come with a manufacturer's 3 year repair warranty and 3 year loss and damage warranty. If a hearing aid is lost or damaged beyond repair during the warranty period, your ZipHearing provider can file what is called a “Loss & Damage Claim” for you, and a new device will be issued, subject to a deductible payable to your hearing provider of $350/aid. As one of the few authorized Oticon retailers on the web, you can rest assured that no matter what happens to your hearing aids during this time period- you're covered with a full factory warranty.

At the time your order is placed with ZipHearing, you're sent a 1 year supply of hearing aid batteries delivered directly to your door. These batteries will usually arrive to your home before your scheduled date to pick up the hearing aids from your ZipHearing provider's office, but if they aren't, your provider will get you started with a few batteries at your delivery appointment. We provide premium Rayovac batteries which have a shelf life of 4 years.

Wax Filters & Domes (if applicable), and Cleaning Supplies

Simple cleaning & maintenance supplies will be provided by the manufacturer and given to you at your hearing aid fitting appointment, along with rubber or silicone domes, and wax filters (if applicable), which your hearing provider will show you how to use, ensuring your hearing aids remain free of wax, oil, and other debris.

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!

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.

I bought Oticon OPN S1 on March 30, 2020. I had a pair of Oticon Alta Pro for 5 years, but unfortunately, I lost one of the pair and when the time came to replace it I chose Oticon without hesitation.The three most important things for me are (1) absolute silence - meaning I do not hear constant humming noise of the refrigerator running in the background when I am home, or of paper shuffling, metal clinking, running motor in a car, etc. etc. (2) human voice sounds natural, not like coming from a microphone, and I do not hear myself talking at all, and (3) The provider who works with ZipHearing, knows what he is doing. He is thorough and very committed to working with you until you can take full advantage of the capabilities of this amazing machine.

In my opinion, having an excellent machine does not do any good unless you can take full advantage of what it can do for you and it takes a good hearing aids fitter like my provider.

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.

So far I am very pleased with my new Oticon S1 & Cros hearing aids. The sound is clear and I love the Bluetooth connectivity. Being totally deaf in my left ear, the Cros hearing adds new dimensions to my total hearing.

The Oticon hearing aids I have are wonderful. The quality is superior to another brand I tried before and I am able to hear everything now! I love that they are rechargeable too. I would recommend these to anyone who needs to hear better.

The sound is fine; I am concerned about the clarity. Maybe I'm expecting too much but I still need to have CC on the TV set during several programs. My previous hearing aid from same company was much better with clarity. Oticon has been great in the past. The hearing aid is very comfortable; no problem there.

I have been wearing a new set of OPN S 1 miniRiter hearing aids for almost a month and find them to be clear and improve my hearing. A significant problem has begun to occur in the left aid that sounds like a "fluttering" for a second or two and comes and goes. I believe this aid is defective and wonder if anyone else has experienced this strange sound?

This is my second pair of Oticon hearing aids and I am very pleased with the improvements and hearing quality. They are completely adjustable for several hearing environments and I have found that the promises to reduce background noise and focus on the speaker are, in fact, very true. I particularly like the external microphone which allows me to focus on a single speaker or other sound source to the exclusion of the on-aid microphones...very clever and very helpful. The bluetooth features are also wonderful as I no longer have trouble hearing phone calls on my mobile phone, Also great for streaming music from my phone directly into my ear...a great experience and certainly different from listening with headphones. If you have unique hearing challenges--these are the aids for you!

The sound quality seems to be acceptable although I really can't compare these Oticon S1 hearing aids to other brands. This is my second pair of Oticon hearing aids. The first one I purchased approximately six years ago. These S1 hearing aids are very comfortable, but so were my first pair of Oticon hearing aids. The problems that I experienced with my first pair was that the inside metal components tended to rust after approximately two years of wear. Even though I continued to remove the rust it continued to come back. With regard to reliability of my new S1 hearing aids I only have been wearing them for approximately three weeks and I believe it is too early to judge their reliability. Hopefully I can report more accurate reliability as I continue to wear the Oticon S1 hearing aids. The reason I only gave them three stars is that I have nothing else (other brands) to compare the oticon products to..

I did not realize how bad my hearing was until I put my new hearing aids in WOW what a difference. Took about a week to get used to wearing them but now I hardly know they are in. Zip hearing was very professional and helpful in assisting me in ordering my new hearing aids and delivery was prompt. I would highly recommend Zip Hearing they saved me about $2500 compared to what I was quoted local for the same hearing aid.

These hearing aids are awesome. I've had hearing aids for several years. I started with Oticon and loved them, then went to another brand for a few years. This time I was able to test several hearing aids and ending up back with Oticon.

Sound quality is great. It's nice to have rechargeable models. My hearing is sharper with these. They also arrived very quickly after the order was placed. Adjusting to these was minimal since I had been using Oticons already; the similarities helped me adjust much more quickly than what could have happened. I am very pleased with the new ones.

Sound quality is generally good. My own voice sounds very mechanical but other sounds are reasonable reproduced. Comfort is good. Battery life is good; approximately 5-6 days depending upon how often the streaming function is used. Hearing conversations in the presence of strong background noise is sometimes difficult. Construction seems to be good quality. Aids do not seem too fragile.
