HearWell Audiology is pleased to introduce Oticon’s new OPN hearing aids!

Many of today’s hearing devices use narrow directionality to help block out external sounds around the wearer. This leads to an under-stimulation of the brain and ultimately to less enjoyable and effective social interactions. With the new Velox platform, OPN hearing aids are able to process sound more efficiently. The result is a clear sound that delivers a rich acoustic experience. This full soundscape empowers the brain to choose what it wants to focus on, improving speech clarity while simultaneously reducing the amount of required mental effort.

Hearing Devices & Cell Phones

 

In the past, hearing devices have made cell phone conversations challenging, if not impossible. Recent breakthroughs in the cell phone and hearing aid industries have resulted in vast improvements in technology. The FCC has implemented new rules governing hearing aid compatibility (HAC) for digital cell phones, so that everyone can benefit from these technological advancements. Apple, in collaboration with hearing aid manufacturers, ReSound, Starkey and Oticon are leading the way with MFi (made for iPhone) programs providing seamless connectivity between your hearing aid and Apple device. Some of the other benefits include:

The ability to control your hearing aid from your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, allowing for simple, discreet, hands-free operation (without the use of an intermediary device, required in the past).
y
Reduction in background noise so that you can hear the sounds you want to hear.
Smaller, quieter and highly customizable.
Clearer, crisper, adjustable sound (voice, music and movies) all at your fingertips.

Because hearing aids are medical devices, you won’t find them in Apple or cell phone stores. You need a hearing evaluation and prescription from an audiologist, who can help find the right hearing aid for your needs and offer guidance in choosing a HAC cell phone.
We also encourage you to test the compatibility between your hearing aids and the cell phone before purchase or within the trial period.
