By Dr. Noël Crosby, Au.D.
May is Better Hearing and Speech Month, a time to raise awareness about communication disorders and the available treatment options that can improve the quality of life for those who experience problems speaking, understanding, or hearing.
It is appropriate that Advanced Hearing Solutions should participate in Better Hearing & Speech Month by inviting you to our upcoming Seminar to introduce you to the New Oticon OpnS™.
It’s not often that a major improvement comes along in hearing aid technology. Oticon introduced the Opn™ three years ago, the Opn™ was truly a revolutionary new hearing instrument that drastically improved how well a wearer of this device could hear, and also how well they could participate in life. Today, I’m pleased to tell you about the Oticon OpnS™. This new OpnS™ hearing instrument drastically improves an already great hearing instrument. The OpnS is built on the new Velox S platform – the most advanced and powerful platform ever developed. This platform unleashes the full potential of the open sound paradigm, the platform offers unprecedented computation power to create life-changing differences for users. The processing speed of the OpnS™ is second to none.
The Opn S™ OpenSound Optimizer technology is a big deal. It allows the flexibility to provide up to six additional decibels of gain in an open fitting without the risk of feedback. With optimal gain, open fittings and no feedback, the OpenSound Optimizer brings the open sound experience to the next level by delivering up to 30% more speech cues to the brain. This helps improve speech understanding without compromising clarity or sound quality.
• Analyzes sound an astonishing 56,000 times per second
• Proactively identifies feedback and engages before feedback affects sound quality, preserving audibility and speech
• Provides up to six additional decibels of gain in an open fitting without the risk of feedback
The Opn S™ utilizes state-of-the-art recharging technology that significantly improves charging times:
• Super fast three-hour charging time for a full day of power
• Quick recharge: 30 minutes for an additional five hours of power
• Contact-free and reliable, inductive charging
• Intuitive, easy-to-use and stylish charger
*Lithium-ion battery performance varies depending on hearing loss, lifestyle and streaming behavior.
The Opn S™ not only provides these important new features, it still provides the full array of processing and features of the original Opn ™.
Please know that a great hearing instrument is only the beginning to better hearing, a hearing instrument can only do what it is programmed to do. The proper fit and programming of any hearing instrument is just as important, or in some cases more important to successfully treating hearing loss. Over the course of my career I have successfully treated many challenging hearing losses. Two patients can present what appears to be the same hearing loss slope and each patient ends up with completely different programming fittings. The reason for the difference is that we hear with our brains and every patient’s brain processes and functions differently. Please don’t underestimate the value of a qualified hearing care professional fitting your hearing instruments.
Please join us to learn more about the Opn S™ on Tuesday, May 21. The seminar will begin at 10:00 AM and will be at The Englewood Chamber of Commerce located at 601 South Indiana Ave., Englewood, FL. Dr. Crosby and a guest speaker from Oticon will discuss and answer questions about this new revolutionary hearing instrument. I urge you to attend this seminar if you would like to learn about this new hearing instrument along with why a correct fit is so very important with any hearing instrument. Dr. Crosby and the staff from Advanced Hearing Solutions look forward to seeing you at the seminar. Call 941-474-8393 and RESERVE YOUR SPOT TODAY!!
