What we love about Zircon

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 More’s on-board deep neural network, so it can learn to recognize each type of sound and their relative importance to you.

Sound quality is close to using your ears alone

Hearing aids fit well. I have used hearing aids from Beltone and Widex and OTicon Zircon 1 hearing aids. Zircon 1 hearing aids provide best fit and the best amplification. I bypassed at least for now, having to have a Cochelear Hearing System on my head by selecting the Oticon Zircon 1 Hearing Aids.

Common questions about Oticon Zircon hearing aids

Bluetooth / ConnectivityRechargeabilityDisposable BatteriesControls/AppsMiscellaneous

Choose questions category:

Is this hearing aid Bluetooth compatible?

Zircon is Made for iPhone, which means it can connect directly with iPhones to stream music, phone calls, and more. Zircon 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 Zircon, you can still get Bluetooth functionality via the ConnectClip accessory.

Does this hearing aid allow for hands-free phone calls?
If you have an iPhone 11 or newer, running on iOS 15.1 or newer, you're able to talk on the phone hands-free. If you have any other phone, you're only able to have hands-free phone calls if you get the ConnectClip accessory. The ConnectClip 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, and talk hands free. If you don't get the ConnectClip, you'll still be able to hear the caller's voice streamed through your hearing aids, but in order for them to hear you, you'd have to hold the phone to your mouth.
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
How many hours a day do the batteries last?
If you don't do any streaming, the battery should last 20-22 hours. If you stream a few hours a day, battery life will be around 16-18 hours.
What is the lifespan of the rechargeable batteries?
The lithium-ion battery will last 2.5-3 years. When it needs to be replaced, take it to your hearing provider and they can replace the battery in their office.
How will I know when my battery needs to be charged?
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.
What if I'm on-the-go and my battery dies?
With proper planning and charging, this should rarely if ever happen. If it does, the only way to charge your hearing aids would be using the charger that came with your hearing aids- Oticon doesn't offer any kind of mini or travel charger. However, a quick charge of 30 minutes will get you 6 hours of power, and if you don't have access to electricity, you could plug your charger into a mobile power pack (like the kind people use for cell phones). You can also plug your charger into any USB port and charge that way.
How long does it take to get a full charge?
A full charge takes 3 hrs and will get you between 16-24 hrs of power. A 30 minute quick charge will get you 6 hours of power.
Does the charger include a dehumidifier?
It does not. If you live in a humid environment or are concerned about moisture exposure, Oticon recommends buying the Flow Med Dry-Cap or PerfectDry Lux dehumidifers, or the SmartCharger accessory.
Are the batteries hard to change?
For most people, no. But if you have poor dexterity, we'd recommend considering the rechargeable model, so you don't have to change batteries.
How long do the batteries last?
Battery life will vary depending on several factors. In general, the 312 battery models will last 3.5-5.5 days. If you use the BTE 13, expect a few more days.
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 do I turn this hearing aid on and off?
To turn the hearing aid off, simply place it in the charger. Or, press and hold the rockerswitch's bottom button for three seconds.
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 rockerswitch, Remote Control 3.0, or the app. If you use the app, you can also control background noise reduction and tinnitus relief sounds.
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 this hearing aid CROS compatible?
Yes, all Zircon hearing aids are compatble with the CROS devices listed above.
Can I get this hearing aid with a telecoil?
Yes, all Zircon models include a telecoil.

RATING4
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.
RATING5
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. Dome

The image of Dome hearing aids feature

The dome slips over and encloses/protects the receiver/speaker. Domes are made with medical-grade silicone. They come in different shapes and sizes—your hearing care professional will help you pick the right size and style. Selecting the appropriate dome will change the sound performance of your hearing aids, so if you’re not achieving satisfying results with your hearing aids, your hearing provider will often consider trying a different dome style. In some cases, such as for wearers with severe or profound hearing loss, an earmold will be used instead of a dome.

2. Indicator light

The image of Indicator light hearing aids feature

The LED indicator light shows the charging state of the battery. The light will turn orange when the hearing aid is charging, and green when fully charged. When removed from the charger or turned on, the light will turn green after approximately six seconds, confirming that it is ready for use.

3. 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.

4. Receiver

The image of Receiver hearing aids feature

The receiver AKA speaker delivers the sound into the ear. Oticon receivers are available in 3 different strengths, standard (60), moderate (85), power (100). Your ZipHearing provider will help you determine the appropriate gain (strength/power) receiver based on the results of your hearing test. Expect to have to replace your receivers every year or so, and this is something that usually takes just a few minutes with your local ZipHearing provider.

5. Receiver wire

The image of Receiver wire hearing aids feature

This thin, plastic-coated wire transmits power and signals to the receiver/speaker, which is worn inside the ear. Oticon receivers are available in 5 different lengths: 0,1,2,3 & 4. Your ZipHearing provider will help you determine the appropriate length of receiver wire, by measuring your ear. In cases when your ZipHearing provider is unsure of the exact receiver length that will work best for you, we’re happy to send out a few different receiver lengths for you to try.

6. Rechargeable or disposable batteries

The image of Rechargeable or disposable batteries hearing aids feature

The model shown is powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, expected to last 16-24 hours/day. The battery takes about 3 hours to fully charge, and a 30 minute quick charge will get you about 6 hours of power. Most people do buy the rechargeable model, and simply put the aids in a charger next to their bed at night, allowing them to wake up with fully charged hearing aids. Other models shown on this page (below) can be powered by a disposable size 312 or size 13 battery. These batteries will last anywhere from 5-10 days, depending on how much Bluetooth streaming you do. Your purchase from ZipHearing includes a 1 year supply of disposable batteries.

7. Rocker switch

The image of Rocker switch hearing aids feature

The rocker switch can be programmed by your hearing provider to have different functions, depending on your needs. Some of these functions include volume and program control, on/off functionality, flight mode, and answering/ending phone calls. Some people use these buttons exclusively to control the hearing aids, and others use the app to control the hearing aids. Others (most people), use a combination of both the app and rocker switch to make adjustments to their hearing aids. You likely won’t have to use these buttons often, but some people find them handy to make quick adjustments to their hearing aids when they change listening environments (ie, entering a noisy restaurant, or a quiet room). Your hearing provider will go over the options available and make sure your hearing aids are set up to your ideal preferences.

8. Water resistant

The image of Water resistant hearing aids feature

Oticon Zircon has an IP68 rating, with all vital components nano-coated inside and out. As a result, Real is protected from dust getting inside and can withstand exposure to water, though caution around water is highly recommended. Prolonged exposure to water can cause irreparable damage to Oticon Zircon, in which a one-time replacement device would be issued during your 3 year warranty, subject to a $350 deductible payable to your local ZipHearing provider .

9. 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.

10. Dome
