Founded in Denmark in 1904, Oticon is a global hearing aid manufacturer created by Hans Demant. He wanted to help his wife enjoy her life without being limited by her hearing loss, and this led to him creating the world’s first electronic hearing aids. Since then, Oticon has grown to become of the biggest names in the hearing aid market and renowned for developing industry-leading hearing aids and accessories.
Oticon is one of the world’s leaders in scientific research into hearing loss which led it to create its ‘brain first’ hearing technology. Oticon’s BrainHearing technology recognises that speech understanding and comprehension are processes that occur in the brain. It provides the brain with the clearest and purest sounds to give people with hearing loss better hearing with less listening effort.
Utilising 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 aid provides 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 analyses your surroundings 100 times per second to support how your brain would naturally make sense of sound.
The Oticon Xceed has been designed in a choice of eight colours and comes in two behind-the-ear (BTE) models:
The built-in BrainHearing technology will analyse 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 while also helping you to remember more of what has just been said.
The Xceed is powered by Oticon’s advanced Velox S platform and comes in three levels of technology: Xceed 1 (premium), Xceed 2, and Xceed 3 (most basic model). The Xceed devices are Made-for-iPhone hearing aids and with built-in Bluetooth technology, you can stream phone calls and audio directly to your hearing aids. The hearing aids also feature Telecoil technology and Tinnitus SoundSupport to help minimise the effects of tinnitus (ringing in the ears). Other features and benefits of the Xceed include:
Oticon’s hearing aid accessories not only help to improve your hearing but also help to enhance your overall experience of being an Xceed hearing aid user. Some of the accessories available include:
The cost of the Oticon Xceed will depend on where you purchase your hearing aids and more significantly, which level of technology you choose. Speak to your hearing care professional for advice on which Xceed would be best for your specific hearing needs.
