By rapidly and precisely reducing disturbing noise in the constantly open environment, we can now deliver a rich, meaningful soundscape that empowers the brain to choose what to focus on and to change focus readily. This technology marks a fundamental step forward in improving speech understanding in complex environments with multiple speakers – while preserving mental energy.
Providing the brain with substantial help in noisy environments
Oticon Opn provides the brain with better conditions to perform in, enabling it to access multiple speakers without restricting access to the rest of the sound environment. This means it can more easily focus on the most interesting sounds.
This approach opens up the sound environment to make sure all elements that matter are continuously accessible. In doing so, users are able to switch attention if something important or interesting occurs, giving them more control.
