BrainHearing™ Technology

Oticon BrainHearing™ Technology

BrainHearing™ technology is a groundbreaking innovation in hearing aids, designed to support the brain’s natural way of processing sound. It’s based on the understanding that hearing is a mental process, and the brain plays a crucial role in how we perceive and understand sound.

Understanding How Hearing Works in the Brain:

Your ears collect sound, but it’s your brain that truly comprehends it. Good hearing is essential for maintaining brain health throughout your life. The brain processes sound through two subsystems:

Orient Subsystem: Constantly scans your surroundings, creating a full overview of the sound scene.

Focus Subsystem: Helps you select which sounds to listen to, filtering out irrelevant noise.

Sound information is then used by other brain centers, including those responsible for memory and emotions.

Challenges with Hearing Loss

When you experience hearing loss, there’s either insufficient sound information reaching your brain or the quality of that information is compromised. This affects your brain’s ability to orient itself in the environment and focus on important sounds. Conversations become harder to follow, and listening requires more effort as the brain fills in gaps by remembering and guessing.

BrainHearing™ Technology Benefits:

  • Balancing the Soundscape: BrainHearing™ ensures your brain has access to the full soundscape. It allows you to focus on relevant sounds while filtering out unnecessary noise.
  • Effortless Understanding: The technology delivers clear, pure sound signals, making it easier for your brain to comprehend.
  • Natural Listening Experience: With BrainHearing™, you experience a more natural and effortless way of hearing, even in challenging environments.

Consequences of Untreated Hearing Loss:

Since hearing is a mental process, untreated or poorly treated hearing loss can lead to negative consequences for your brain. Social isolation, depression, and difficulty coping with complex sound environments are some of the challenges. Ensuring your brain receives the full sound perspective is crucial for overall well-being.

BrainHearing technology is found on the following Oticon hearing aids:

In summary, BrainHearing™ technology in Oticon hearing aids supports your brain’s health by providing quality sound information, enhancing your listening experience, and allowing you to engage more effectively with the world around you.
