Oticon More™ is the latest flagship hearing aid family from Oticon. More picks up where Opn S left off, advancing Oticon's BrainHearing™ philosophy with a Deep Neural Network (DNN) that runs onboard Oticon's new Polaris sound processing platform.

What does it all mean for you? Oticon claims the new DNN-powered approach will make it easier for you to "enjoy, follow and engage in conversations." Recent research from Oticon's Centre for Applied Audiology Research suggests that More provides a 15% increase in speech understanding, and reduced listening effort when compared to Opn S.

Highlights of the new Polaris Platform:

  • 15% increase in speech understanding*
  • 16x more capacity to execute advanced algorithms*
  • Twice the computation speed*
  • 64‑channel sound processing
  • Onboard Deep Neural Network (DNN)

*Compared to previous generation, Velox S

More Family Overview

As of August 31, 2021, there are two receiver-in-canal (RIC) models of Oticon More available — miniRITE-R and miniRITE-T. The -R is rechargeable while the -T is powered by disposable size-312 batteries. Both models have a telecoil and a push button rocker switch for changing volume and other settings. Both models also offer iPhone and Android audio streaming and hands-free calling over Bluetooth. And both models come in a variety of skin and hair colors. A new pink color option is also available.

BrainHearing™ and DNN in Oticon More: The Open Sound Experience

Oticon More and its Polaris chip platform–like its predecessor the Velox S chip platform–uses the company’s BrainHearing philosophy that also incorporates a Deep Neural Network or DNN. That’s a lot of marketing terminology, so let’s address BrainHearing and DNN separately:

BrainHearing. Oticon’s amplification approach is somewhat unique compared to other hearing aid manufacturers, because one of the key goals of BrainHearing is to create a 360-degree soundscape that helps you hone in on the sound target of interest (e.g., speech). To do this, the processor works with the directional microphones and noise reduction systems so that all the external sounds are reduced—but not by as much as in other hearing aids. Many advanced hearing aids incorporate noise reduction and directional microphone systems, as well as other controls, to minimize sounds coming from behind or to the side of the listener. This certainly helps with speech understanding in noisy situations, as intended.  However, Oticon’s research indicates their “open” or BrainHearing strategy provides our brains with a 360-degree soundscape to allow you to hear speech and your surroundings more naturally.

The idea is you need to hear the entire soundscape to effectively interact with the sound around you, then focus on target sounds—again, usually speech. In a nutshell, this is Oticon’s philosophy with BrainHearing, and it influences how they approach and implement directional microphones, noise reduction strategies, and other technologies in their hearing aids that use the Polaris chip platform.

DNN. Oticon More (along with its Play PX pediatric hearing aid) is also driven by a form of machine learning called a Deep Neural Network (DNN)—that is, the Polaris chip has the ability to recognize 12 million real-life sounds and use machine learning to continue to improve its sound recognition. Additionally, as the hearing aid’s chip recognizes and learns sounds, it aligns various processing technologies in an attempt to provide clean and comfortable sound to the listener across any type of listening environment.

According to the company, this approach has shown in internal studies to provide 30% more sound and increase speech understand by 15% compared to their own previous product (Opn S™). Keep in mind, not all of the More product technology is carried downward to the lower-tier product lines, so products like Oticon Zircon do not feature DNN.

In addition, please keep in mind that the best hearing aids in the world still rely on your own personal hearing capabilities. That is, if you’re fitted with appropriate amplification and still have difficulty understanding speech even in the quietest listening environments, hearing aids—no matter how good—will not be able to overcome that inherent loss in noisier or more challenging environments.  However, you do want the best technology to make the most of what your hearing can do.

What do users say?

To gain some insight on how this 360-degree soundscape philosophy is being perceived by those with hearing loss, we watched several video reviews, including one from an Oticon More™ wearer. In the video, the woman noted she had a bilateral, moderate-to-severe hearing loss and that she is a long-time hearing aid user. While she appreciated that she was able to hear some sounds that she hadn’t heard with her other hearing instruments (eg, birds), she ultimately could not grow accustomed to the sound and returned the hearing aids. This certainly doesn’t mean that her experience is what all listeners will encounter and, in fact, many may appreciate hearing additional sounds in their environment.

Other users reported a “more natural” sound quality with the Oticon More product compared to their previous hearing aids and reported excellent speech understanding even in noise. No doubt your preference (or not) for this amplification approach will be affected by your own unique hearing loss, noise tolerance, how well you understand speech in noise, your most frequently encountered listening environments, and your previous experience with hearing aids. Regardless, for those who don’t appreciate hearing more of their listening environment as it may be distracting or annoying, programming changes and even changes within the hearing aid app by the wearer can be made that will likely lead to a comfortable and excellent sounding hearing aid.

You should also keep in mind that the best hearing aids in the world still rely on your own personal hearing capabilities (what HCP’s call “residual hearing”). That is, even if you’re fitted with appropriate amplification and you still have difficulty understanding speech in quieter settings, then hearing aids—no matter how good the technology—are unlikely to overcome that inherent hearing loss in noisy places or more challenging listening environments. However, you do want the best technology to make the most of what your hearing can do, and there are also aural rehabilitation strategies from your HCP that can also help.

Audio Streaming and Connectivity

In terms of connectivity, More is a stellar performer. The new product family is compatible with the full suite of Oticon wireless devices (except the CROS), and works well with most modern smartphones. More is also future-proof, in the sense that it will work with Bluetooth's new LE Audio protocol, which promises to usher in a new era of robust audio streaming.

Oticon has a very well-established track record when it comes to making great Made For iPhone (MFi) devices, and with More, they are also introducing one-way audio streaming from Android devices with Android 10 and Bluetooth 5.0 via Android's new Audio Streaming for Hearing Aids (ASHA) protocol. So far the list of compatible Android phones includes most new Google Pixel, Samsung, and OnePlus phones. For a full up-to-date list of compatible iOS and Android devices, check Oticon's compatibility guide.

For those who need to connect to other Bluetooth-enabled devices, like laptops, you'll need to purchase the Oticon ConnectClip. The device will connect to any Bluetooth audio device and transmit low-latency high-quality audio to your hearing aids. The ConnectClip can also be used to have hands-free calls with More. Without the ConnectClip, you'd need to use your phones microphone to pick up your voice. If you'd rather not purchase or use an accessory to connect to your laptop or have hands-free calls, consider the Phonak Paradise as a great alternative product.

The Oticon On App

The Oticon On app serves as the central hub for controlling modern Oticon hearing aids. The app lets you control volume, switch between sound programs, check your battery level, and adjust the EQ for streaming audio. Aside from acting as a remote control, the app offers a variety of other functions:

  • Use your phone as a remote microphone
  • Access tinnitus relief sounds
  • Control other wireless accessories like the EduMic or ConnectClip
  • Set personalized listening goals
  • Allow your hearing aids to trigger IoT devices
  • Receive notifications on your hearing aids from IoT devices

The last thing to mention about More is that it is fully compatible with Oticon's new RemoteCare app. The app allows you to connect with your hearing care provider remotely (from the comfort of home) to have counseling sessions, and to receive hearing aid tweaks without the trip to the office. Being that we're still in the middle of the pandemic in most of the world, this feature is a must!

CROS for single-sided deafness (SSD)

Oticon offers a CROS and rechargeable CROS PX for those who need to transmit audio from the poorer ear to the better ear. Both options can be used for CROS or BiCROS setups, where CROS is used when your better ear has normal hearing and BiCROS is used when your better ear needs amplification. CROS and CROS PX are compatible with More and a number of other wireless Oticon hearing aid models.

Pure Sound!

After testing all the other that are being praised as being the best?

Only ONE can do the Job,

Music 100%, Cycling & Talking with someone at the same time even with wind blowing 100%, standing on street with an immense number of cars and trucks driving by and being able to talk, amazing. There are multiple situations where the others I tried failed miserably.

Setup Times: 

1H to 1:30H

Fine Tuning 30 Minutes 

And Done.

My audiologist has multiple room and one of is like a Studio, nowhere else have I ever seen another like this anywhere. The hearing experience was exquisite.

The Room was used to setup other tested HA’s.

The hearing aid is okay. I can’t tell any difference from the other manufacturer I had before I went with the “latest and greatest.” The super frustrating part is that every time Apple has an iOS update for my iPhone I have troubles with the Oticon ON app so I lose all that functionally with the app, including  connection to the TV device. It takes multiple attempts to re-pair the hearing aids to the phone before it finally works.  The technical support is dismal. They blame Apple for all their problems. The flashy marketing does not tell the reality of the hearing aids in real life.  For example you may only pair ONE Apple device to the hearing aids. I am sorry I purchased them and will never purchase again.

The hearing aids (HA) work well, but only stay charged approx. 14 hours. THE OTICON APP STINKS! The TV Adapter (TVA) is terrible…it constantly… and I mean like every 10 minutes, you lose hearing in the right HA, then minutes later, it could be in the left HA. Instructions say you only have to “pair” once! Not true! I get msg. on my phone (which controls hearing aids, whether using just for volume for HA or for using

with the TVA to hear your TV thru your HA’s…it’s asking me to “pair” the HA again! Extremely frustrating. When I asked for help, Support wants YOU to do the fixing, telling YOU to do 8 different things to your phone to get their App to work better! Then, when you’re not using their lousy App, you have to go back to re-instate some of those changes you made to get their App to work properly! I’m in my 45-day Trial period & I don’t think I will buy these Hearing Aids until they get the App to perform well. I will keep using my older Starkey hearing aids until I find hearing aids that really work well communicating with the hearing aids. It’s now 2022 and so many apps out there that work well. Oticon needs to get better programmers and better algorithms to get their phone app to work well.

I just received my Oticon More which is my first experience with a hearing aid. I see some complaints in other reviews about Bluetooth dropping frequently. I have found that Bluetooth, and therefore connection to the app, will be lost when the hearing aid is placed back in its holder. To rectify this I go into Settings (I have an iPhone) and turn Bluetooth off for a couple seconds and back on, I am then automatically reconnected to the Oticon app. As for whether I like it, I absolutely do! It does what a hearing aid is supposed to do and restores the hearing in my left ear which has nerve damage do to an injury. One unexpected bonus is I don’t need to wear my separate Bluetooth earpiece for work to have hands-free access to my iPhone anymore because the Oticon More takes care of that too, without having to do adjust any settings. The only minor gripe I have is I wish it was just a little less noticeable.

I have had my Oticon More 1 aids for about 8 months. They are horrible. Here is a list of some of the never ending issues I've had with the More 1 aids. A quick note. Before purchasing the More 1s, I was a very happy and loyal Oticon customer. My OPN 3 aids were amazing.

1. Bluetooth doesn't work well with iPhone. I get constant disconnections.

2. The app for iPhone is dreadful. Constant disconnections and it rarely successfully connects to both hearing aids when I open the app. To adjust both hearing aids, I constantly have to restart the app several times to get it to connect to both aids.

3. Strange tones that sound like someone running their finger up and down a piano. 12 very quick tones up and 12 very quick tones down. When this happens, the aids are charged over 25%. It happens completely at random and I can't make it happen. Nobody can tell me what these tones mean.

4. The rechargeable battery in my left hearing aid has started dying after about 6 hours of use. Fully charged to dead in 6 hours.

Considering how buggy and unreliable the More 1s have been, I will never consider buying another Oticon product.

Speech clarity is not there for me. The more sound booster does not work, and the equalizer  if its green you can make adjustments, and if its grey (which mind is all the time) you can make adjustments for "later" ... why? Whats the point of saving something that doesnt work properly for later??  It's a great concept, but its not finished.  At this point I would think I could have come down a step to the Ruby , it would have been more cost effective and I may have have similar or better results!  Oticon rushed this to get it on the shelf, and didnt cover all the bases!  

A positive the rechargeable is good, no more batteries in the landfill!

Im a first time user and trialed both the open 3 and more 1 and the more 1 are great. However the app which has recently been upgraded and some state how it is improved is really basic and unreliable. My iphone shows the hearing aids connected under settings but open the app and it shows the left is not connected yet in practice i am only hearing through the right. Other times i hear the phone ringing through the aids but when answered i have to use the phone speaker to hear. I use the ipad for streaming and so always have to turn blue tooth off phone and on ipad or off ipad and on phone as they only connect to one device. The sound breaks up or pops when streaming from youtube but are fine when listening to itunes. I find i have to close the app each day and open it on which ever device first thing. The settings are also much more basic than those on phonak. For such an expensive item, the app seriously lags behind the development in the actual hearing aids.

Insane how much these hearing aids cost.  Sound quality poor compared to my Starky HA’s - voices, mostly female, all have a lisp.  Been back to my HA specialist several times to adjust but still a problem.   I want an extra charger for traveling but I will get by with the one due to the ridiculous high cost of $360 - and hope the charger never needs replacing.

I did not like anything about them as I had problems with them from the first time I used them. I was told I need to upgrade and that these were the hit of the range etc.  As for the rechargeable battery is a joke. I’m so disappointed with them and not worth €6,200 the I had to pay for them. Daylight robbery!!!!  I had to return mine because of all the problems and having huge doubts about getting them replaced.

I've been a hearing aid wearer for over the past 20 years.  I've had Phonak, Widex and even Oticon.  Looking to upgrade from a Phonak Audeo to a newer set (due to good benefits), I was recommended the Oticon More.
These are the first hearing aids I have ever returned with less than a day of ownership.  These hearing aids are a downgrade from the Phonak Audeo.  The bluetooth for hearing aids does not operate as one would assume, it only streams the audio from the phone to the aids, like headphones.  But when you use it for a phone call, the microphone used is the one on the phone, not the hearing aids, which requires you to hold the phone near your mouth so the other party can hear.  This was confirmed by Oticon support, and the only way around this is to use their ConnectClip, which is one more device that you must carry around.  The marketing is misleading, despite having an asterisk with a confusing statement saying it is one-way audio streaming only.
Even my audiologist was confused.  They first said it was because I use an Android, and that it only works with iPhone, but considering Phonak works without a hitch, this is disappointing, despite them listing my android as compatible.
If you aren't looking to use these with a mobile phone (for phone calls), then this might be a pair to consider, but who doesn't like hands-free calling?

Received my new hearing aids last week.  They hold a charge for about 4-5 hours and then go silent.  To say that I am annoyed would be an understatement.   I leave them in the charger overnight, they appear to be fully charged in the morning and then go silent several hours after putting them into my ears.   This is NOT acceptable.   Now I need to find my older pair to have in reserve for when the new ones dies.  If I had known they would be such a pain to charge I  might not have spent $$$ for them.

With the Oticon Mores  I hear well, better than I thought I could. For this I am grateful. 

HOWEVER... Since I'm still very active  the charger is a loss of freedom I did not anticipate. A single charge is good for only one day as opposed to 4 or 5 days with my old battery operated aids which I still wear when the charger is not operable or unavailable. 

Oticon More would be perfect if a battery option were available.

They, quite simply, are not worth the money.  Mine attempt to communicate with each other.  The only way to stop this is take them out and start over.  Bluetooth feature is close to worthless.  Never again, that’s for sure.

No doubt I hear better with the Oticon More model. They have performed quite well, deserving of five stars. 

HOWEVER, the rechargeable feature is an ENORMOUS disadvantage. When traveling, rather than a very compact supply of batteries one has to remember to drag along the not so small (about half the size of an apple) recharger and cord. A second recharger may help, however, for a ransom of $325 + tax it's ridiculous.

This is more than a mere inconvenience, it can be measured as a loss of freedom. 

So, for the reasons that matter most, kudos. 

For the engineer who decided a rechargeable hearing aid was a good idea, either fire him or introduce an optional battery model. 

Barry D

Rather than an expensive charger, would a basic USB charger be better, or plugging directly into your computer? Does it hold 18 hours charge?

MrTed

Any suggestion which compact charger to buy?

JDC1117

They now have an optional charger with a built-in battery that can be used to fully recharge the aids. I was told it retails for $250 and does not replace the existing half moon charger. I like the rechargeable idea, but dislike the cost. I guess I could get an external battery pack that plugs into the USB connector that comes with the half-moon charger. Basically any battery pack designed for cell phones should work. Of course, then I will be carrying two additional pieces of hardware. It is my understanding that the rechargeable batteries are easily replaced with a small tool that opens the battery door, but how much the batteries cost and whether they will be readily available is not known. The more the batteries are used by the new features and power required to drive them, the faster they will drain and need to be replaced, so rechargeables are the future in my estimation.

I didn’t have the Oticon More but enjoyed the greatness of Oticon hearing aids that I purchased back in 2011 which lasted ten great years of hearing everything just fine.

I would love to purchase the Oticon More but I had cash to purchase my first pair and now I can’t afford a pair.

Oticon is so so so worth every penny they charge and the affordable hearing aids from other companies online that I’ve never heard of aren’t worth a penny because they are sold as one size fits all and can’t be adjusted for an individuals hearing needs, and I’ve tried two of these companies products and won’t do it again.

Spent $5400 on Oticon More 2 Hearing Aids for Android. Hearing aids don't work without an app...app was released less than 60 days ago. Doesn't work for Google Pixel 3A. Connectivity issues...causes phone not to ring or notify incoming texts...free TV box connected and worked ONCE. Don't waste your money...you are being asked to Beta test this company's app. Shameful. Taking these back asap.

Speech is very clear. REM was done when the MORE 1 was set up.  Overall it gives great clear sound that is somewhat soft.  My main issue with previous hearing aid was clarity of sound in an auditorium or music hall.  With MORE 1 echoing is gone and I have clear dialog that I can understand.  The application works with iPhone and Apple Watch and maintains connectivity.  Streaming of music is also extremely good.  I can now hear the violins and cellos in the high frequency range.  I would say to try Oticon MORE1.

I received these a couple of weeks ago - both ears.  I love them.  Sound is more sharp & robust - almost feeling like surround sound.  I use them streaming with iphone & ipad pretty well.  Lately having issues with the left one cutting out while listening to shows on the ipad.  Ipad is fairly new - not the latest but definitely recent.  Found this forum searching for articles about the Oticon More and cutting out.  

Over all - definitely consider these - if you've been using Oticon for a few years you'll know it's a good quality brand  - these are the latest iteration and I highly recommend them!

Oticon More 3 Oticon More miniRITE-R

I got the oticon More 3 hearing aids on a trial from my Audiology office. This was after I tried an oticon Siya minirite 2 first. While I struggled with getting used to the Siya, the More 3 was amazingly easy to get used to. For me, the Siya had more issues with feedback and whistling even after we made adjustments three times. I really did not notice this at all with the More. The Siya was somewhat uncomfortable in my left ear even after changing tips, but the More was immediately comfortable in both ears. I felt like word understanding was better than my 7 year old  Phonak Aid with either of these Oticon brands, but, perhaps slightly better with the More. One thing I did realize though after trying out the battery version versus the rechargeable version, is that I really don't mind changing out batteries and then I don't need to have a charger sitting around. While I do plan to buy the More, I do wish they did have a lower priced non-rechargeable version in this line up as well.

I hope that they offer a replacement battery design as well. 

I don’t mind changing the batteries and they are easily accessible. New devices have new problems. If the rechargeable battery fails, do we wait days for replacement?  What if we visit Australia and the rechargeable battery fails? Does the rechargeable battery have a warranty just like the hearing aids? If my dog or vacuum cleaner chews the cord, can a replacement cord be found at Walmart? Just kidding About the last comment..but I guess it could happen.

I got these hearing aids to test them out after reading the review on this page... so I thought I should come back to post my thoughts so far. I've been on the Opn since the original Opn and now I'm wearing the Opn S minirite. The main reason I wanted to test them was to see if they could actually deliver a noticeable improvement in background noise. I'm a nurse, so I'm in a lot of noise every day, and with all my patients now wearing masks, my Opn's aren't cutting it anymore. I'm a few days in with the More aids, and so far... well, they remind me a lot of my Opn S's... Not a night and day change or anything. But, maybe I'm catching a word here, a word there, better than I was before. I'm going to continue the two week trial and see how I feel at the end... but so far, I'm not sure I'd recommend upgrading from Opn S.

Best review of them all; and actual comparison to the OPN.   Thank you. 

I was considering updating to the MORE, but if I'm reading it right, they only come as rechargeable and won't run for 24 hours without running out of battery.  Is this your experience?  And now with your review, I think I'll wait to see what they come out with in the future.

Hi there, for my wife is almost the same problem talking with people wearing masks, can you please share how it went with the trial with the Oticon More?  any comment will be appreciated.

I have found it is a mixed bag about people with masks. I am having my audiologist make tweaks to see if we can make it better. My wife who hears quite well has trouble with mask wearers also so it is not just about  the aids. They often don't speak loudly to begin with (soft speech). The More's are quite different than the Alta pros I was using before. I often have to check to make sure they are on they are so natural. I am no longer startled by certain sounds the way I was before. Feedback is also gone and I am using the basic newly designed bass boosted open domes. That said, there is still some tweaking of soft sounds that needs to be done, but we are gaining on it.
