Oticon is a hearing aid manufacturer originally founded in Denmark in 1904 and has since grown to become one of the world's leading hearing aid brands. Oticon has led several technological breakthroughs in the hearing aid market making a significant difference to the lives of people living with hearing loss.
Oticon introduced its ‘brain first’ technology which recognizes that both speech understanding and comprehension are cognitive processes that take place in our brain. The company’s BrainHearing technology provides hearing aid users with improved hearing with less effort by providing the brain with the purest, clearest sound signals.
Utilizing Oticon’s decades of hearing technology experience and following extensive research, the company launched its most powerful hearing aid, the Oticon Xceed. Built on the manufacturer’s most advanced platform, the Oticon Xceed hearing aids provide a 360-degree sound experience, providing more speech understanding with less listening effort. What Oticon describes as groundbreaking technology, the Xceed’s super-fast OpenSound Navigator continuously analyzes your surroundings 100 times per second to support how your brain would naturally make sense of sound.
Xceed also offers Oticon’s OpenSound Optimizer, a feature that analyzes incoming sound 56,000 times a second for feedback reduction to provide better speech stability throughout the day.
The Oticon Xceed has been designed in a choice of eight colors and comes in two behind-the-ear (BTE) models:
The built-in BrainHearing technology will analyze sound from different directions and can distinguish between speech and background noise. This means that you can easily identify where sounds are coming from, creating a more natural hearing experience in loud environments while also helping you to remember more of what has just been said.

With built-in Bluetooth technology, the Xceed hearing aids are made to connect with iPhone devices and are available with Telecoil and Tinnitus SoundSupport to offer relief for symptoms of tinnitus (ringing in the ears).
