What we love about Own

Deep Neural Network iconDeep Neural Network

Oticon used a 360 degree microphone to capture 12 million real-life sound scenes. This data was then used to train Oticon Own's on-board deep neural network, so it can learn to recognize each type of sound and their relative importance to you.

Virtually Invisible iconVirtually Invisible

Oticon Own is available in 5 different in-the-ear styles. The invisible-in-canal style (IIC) is Oticon’s smallest in-the-ear design to date and according to Oticon will be an invisible fit for 9 out of 10 users.

Bluetooth Connectivity iconBluetooth Connectivity

Own hearing aids offer a range of Bluetooth connectivity options including hands-free phone calls with select iOS devices, and direct streaming from select Android devices.

Oticon Own

World’s first in-ear hearing aid with an on-board Deep Neural Network

Released by Oticon on August 25, 2022, Own is Oticon's newest line of custom in-the-ear hearing aids for mild-to-severe hearing losses.

Oticon Own is most well-known for being the world’s first in-the-ear hearing aid to include an on-board Deep Neural Network which has learned to recognize virtually all types of sounds, their details, and how they should ideally sound.

Prior to Own, Oticon hadn’t released an in-the-ear model since 2016, so Own is a much needed update and now means Oticon has a winning product in just about every category.

Great hearing aids and great service

Good sound quality with no distortion. Easy bluetooth connectivity and clear sound when using my phone. I don't notice them when I'm wearing them. Zip Hearing took care of a technical issue-fast-they live up to their name. The only thing I would love to change would be smaller devices-in the ear and rechargable- but I don't think that's been developed yet.

Common questions about Oticon Own hearing aids

Bluetooth / ConnectivityDisposable BatteriesControls/AppsMiscellaneous

Choose questions category:

Does this hearing aid allow for hands-free phone calls?
The ITC, ITE HS, and ITE FS models do have hands-free calling but it requires iPhone 11 or newer, running on iOS 15.2 or later. With these models it is an entirely hands-free phone call experience, as the push-button on these models will allow you to answer, reject, and hangup phone calls. If you any any other phone, you can only have hands-free calling via Oticon's ConnectClip accessory. The ConnectClip accessory can be clipped to your shirt or worn on a neckloop, and that has a microphone on it that will pick up your voice for the caller, allowing you to keep the phone in your pocket/purse, etc.
Can this hearing aid be paired directly to my Bluetooth TV?
No. To stream audio from the TV you'll need the TV Adapter 3.0
Is this hearing aid Bluetooth compatible?
The ITC and ITE models are are Made for iPhone, which means they can connect directly with iPhones to stream music, phone calls, and more. Own is also compatible with the new Android protocol, Audio Streaming for Hearing Aids (ASHA), allowing direct streaming from select Android devices with Android 10 and Bluetooth 5.0. If your phone isn't directly compatible with Own, you can still get Bluetooth functionality via the ConnectClip accessory so long as you have the ITC or ITE models.
How will I know when it's time to change the battery?
A few hours before the battery dies, you'll hear three steady beeps. This will usually happen a few times. Then, right before the battery dies, you'll hear four descending tones.
How long do the batteries last?
Battery life will vary depending on several factors. In general, the 312 battery models will last 3.5-7 days, and the size 10 battery will last 2-4 days.
Are the batteries hard to change?
For most people, no. But if you have poor dexterity, we'd recommend considering one of the larger 312 battery models (ITC OR ITE) and not the size 10 models (IIC OR CIC).
How can I control this hearing aid, and which settings can I control?
You can control the volume and program of this hearing aid using the onboard pushbutton or Remote Control 3.0. If you get the ITC, ITE HS, or ITE FS model, you can also use the Oticon ON app to control background noise reduction and tinnitus relief sounds.
How do I turn this hearing aid on and off?
To turn the hearing aid off, simply open the battery door. When the battery door is closed again, the hearing aid will power on.
Does the app have a “Find My Hearing Aid” feature?
Yes. However, in order to use this feature, you wouldn've had to have setup the app and paired your hearing aids to your phone, prior to losing them. Once the hearing aids have been paired, if you lose them, the app will help you locate them, so long as the hearing aids are powered on. If the hearing aids are powered off, or if their batteries have died, the app will show you the last location of the hearing aids when they were powered on.
Is there any reason not to buy the IIC or CIC model?
Maybe. Like almost all IIC and CIC hearing aids, these models will not have Bluetooth streaming capabilities, cannot be programmed remotely by your hearing care provider, and cannot be adjusted via the Oticon ON app. Due to the small size of these models, Oticon had to make some hardware compromises, and these models only have one microphone. Oticon's MoreSound Intelligence was designed to work with input from two microphones (and it does with all other models except IIC and CIC), and we suspect MoreSound Intelligence is more effective with two microphones. Finally, the IIC model only has a single automatic program, and cannot be adjusted by the user. Some users may feel this doesn't give them enough control or flexibility over their listening experiene in different environments, though this is common for IIC models.
Is this hearing aid CROS compatible?
No. Oticon's newest CROS compatible hearing aid is called Oticon More.
Can I get this hearing aid with a telecoil?
The ITC, ITE HS, and ITE FS can be ordered with a telecoil. However if ordered with a telecoil, the hearing aid will not have Bluetooth connectivity to your phone. With Oticon Own, you have to choose one or the other- Bluetooth or telecoil.

Plug it into the back of your TV or soundbar and the audio will be streamed 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.
RATING2
The image of ConnectClip hearing aids
ConnectClip, $249

ConnectClip, $249

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.
RATING3
The image of Remote Control 3.0 hearing aids
Remote Control 3.0, $199

Remote Control 3.0, $199

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.

KEY FEATURES

1. Disposable battery

The image of Disposable battery hearing aids feature

This particular model of Own is powered by a size 312 battery, expected to last about 5 days, depending on how much Bluetooth streaming you do. Other models (below) are powered by a size 10 battery, expected to last 2-5 days. To prolong your battery life, it’s recommended to open the battery door when not in use. Another benefit of opening the battery door is it allows the moisture accumulated throughout the day to dry out. Your purchase from ZipHearing includes a 1 year supply of batteries.

2. Microphone

The image of Microphone hearing aids feature

The microphone picks up the sound from the environment and sends it into the hearing aid for processing. You’ll mostly want to leave the microphone alone, but periodically check it to ensure it’s not being plugged up by hair care products or oils.

3. Receiver

The image of Receiver hearing aids feature

The receiver AKA speaker delivers the sound into the ear. Depending on the severity of your hearing loss, your hearing care provider will instruct Phonak to build your hearing aids with one of 3 different receiver strengths: 75 (standard), 90 (power), 100 (high power).

4. Vent

The image of Vent hearing aids feature

The vent runs along the entire hearing aid, usually along the bottom portion, with an opening at the faceplate of the hearing aid (outside the ear), and an opening next to the receiver/speaker of the hearing aid (inside the ear). Vents serve multiple purposes, from aiding in ventilation, to controlling sound leakage and feedback reduction. Vents can affect acoustics and sound quality, so your hearing care provider and the manufacturer will take care to ensure your hearing aid is built with the correct vent size.

5. Wax filter

The image of Wax filter hearing aids feature

When it comes to maintaining your hearing aids, this is where you’ll spend most of your time. The wax filter (mostly) prevents wax and oils from getting into the receiver/speaker. Your hearing provider may supply you with Oticon ProWax filters enabling you to periodically change these on your own. Some people never have to change these wax filters, others have to change them weekly. Your purchase includes 1 pack of wax filters, and you can purchase additional wax filters directly from your ZipHearing provider, or through a number of sites online such as Amazon.
