Understanding Oticon Hearing Aids
Oticon is one of the top 3 manufacturers of hearing aids in the world based out of Denmark. It is also one of the many hearing technology-related businesses owned by company William Demant Holdings. The company was founded by Hans Demant in 1904. Their motto is “People First”.
Recently, Oticon introduced a ground breaking hearing aid range called the Opn S. The technology behind it is meant to help users hear speech in a noisy environment at par with other people who have normal hearing ability. Oticon opn S has taken open sound experience to the next level and offers more flexibility and options for you.

It offers an extensive range of wireless connectivity options. Users can easily connect their hearing aid to their smartphones, TVs, and other devices.
