Conventional hearing aids try to home in on speech, damping the other noises that surround you. This prevents your brain from receiving the proper sound information that it needs. And that is exactly what the Oticon More does not do. This hearing aid lets you hear all sounds, just as well as people with unimpaired hearing. Oticon has succeeded – as the only manufacturer – in letting all sounds enter your ear in amplified form, without turning things into chaos for the user, which can lead to having to strain in order to understand speech.
The Oticon More does not have microphones that try to interpret where sound is coming from, instead being active in the round in order to pick up all sounds clearly. That’s because sound scenes change constantly and contain a lot more than just speech. In order to process this in a natural way, your brain needs access to the complete sound scene. But it’s still very easy for Oticon More users to distinguish speech from other sounds. Using this hearing aid, all sounds are very easy to process.
Given that people with unimpaired hearing do not listen in a specific direction, why should a hearing aid decide for you which sounds to dampen? That’s were Oticon More makes a difference!
