About Oticon Opn S

21 February 2019 - Ever since Oticon introduced its popular Opn hearing aids in 2016, the company's stated goal has been to enable people with hearing loss to understand speech, even in noisy environments, "on par with people with normal hearing." With today's announcement of its second-generation Opn S hearing aids, Oticon says it has come even closer to reaching that goal.

Oticon says the new Opn S sound processing platform will provide improvements over the original Opn hearing aids by at least three different measures. Documentation in today's 2018 financial report from corporate parent Demant A/S says Oticon Opn S will deliver:

  • 15% improvement in speech understanding versus Opn.
  • 10% reduction in listening effort versus Opn.
  • 10% increase in memory recall versus Opn.

I like having the music program and use it the majority of the time. The beam-forming option works for me better in crowded restaurants than the default program because it doesn't pick up conversations behind or next to me.

I would never want to be without these hearing aids now. They have genuinely changed my life!

I really like my OPN's although TV is getting hard to hear dialogue. I probably need an adjustment. Amazon Prime shows are really bad but even some Netflix shows require louder settings. I have fallen back on captions. The MFI connection has gotten worse since Apple updated to AirPlay 2. I think Oticon needs to update their software as well. The connection used to be rock solid. Now I have to open and close the battery doors almost every day.

I have a mid-range hearing loss. I purchased the OPNs a couple of months ago to replace the Phonak Brio aids from Costco that I've owned for over three years. I decided to upgrade because I was having a difficult time understanding my dinner companions when sitting around the table in noisy restaurants, an important part of my life. The Oticon S aids seem better - and I accept they may be the best I can hope for with current technology. I know that I can't replicate normal hearing, and I trust my audiologist to adjust the aids to their maximum effectiveness in my situation. BTW, the rechargeable batteries are a convenience - I trust I always will be able to find a power source to recharge them.

I've had these for trial for about two weeks. Previously had a pair of Miracle Ears but misplaced them during a hunting trip. The OPN S1 does not squelch in my ears like the previous HA. Have not worn HA for about a year, so I did experience the running water, boiling water, frying bacon irritations and some tiny noise when chewing crunchy stuff. Saw Audiologist this morning and changed the domes, crunchy stuff sounds more natural and not having to focus as much on my soft talkers. Will give it more time before I commit to them.

I'm trialing this pair of OPN S1 and on my third week. First week, things like running water, boiling water, frying bacon, pot and pans irritated me. Second week, noticing soft voices can still be a minor issue. Chewing crunchy things sounds tinny. Audiologist changed the domes, things seem to sound more natural. Still a work in progress that time will tell. I wore a miracle ear HA a few years back until I misplaced them during a hunting trip, have not worn any during the last year. In comparison the OPN S1 does not screem at me when it doesn't like the input feedback. The sound is more natural. I dont use BT devices and not sure I will, so getting 8 days out of 312 batteries.

I find they cut in and out while using the TV streamer. My suspicion is because I use sound notifications for messages and emails so when they arrive I can’t hear the sound but my aids will cut off in one or the other ear. Very annoying. Basically too many bells and whistles which add to problems. I had Siemens years ago which had a button that cut off ALL the background noise and had a volume control. They were really effective and simple. They did the job. I have worn aids since I was 8.

MFI integration with the iPhone is the main reason i wear these. The only difficulty i would report is hearing people in the car over road noise when traveling at highway speed. Otherwise they are excellent. I wore the Oticon OPN 1's prior to these and the "S" is a noticeable improvement with feedback management and a small improvement with speech clarity.

I just ordered Oticon OPN-S1 and being fitted next week. I had Starkey Halo 2's 13 for 3 years and last two years were the worst. I am very hopeful they work great but as I have found with the Halo's. Its not only the equipment but the Audiologist. They can make or break the hearing aid. If they do not know the technology they actually make it worse. I am 1 for 4 now with audiologist. Hoping this one can make the Oticon OPN S work well. If not I will try DIY.

I will. Fitting today. Getting the battery ones. Did not want to worry about losing a charge mid day and new batteries last a week I hear. My Haolo 2 's lasted two days max in the last two years.

Same here I am trialing OPN1S rechargeable now after trialing Phonak Marvel.

I have had Oticon Alta Pro for the last 5 years. The hearing performance in varied evironments does not seem as adaptable as the Phonaks and as you said in cars.

The Phonak Auto Sense worked great. I would buy them in a second except I am a iPhone user and their Made for anyphone Blue Tooth was going backwards on iPhone.

Every text tone , calendar reminder and sound the phone made comes into your ears. The only way to stop (according to Phonak was to turn your Notifications to Silent on your Phone. I turned my BT off most of the time unless wanting to use the Phone for a call. My car has a wired CarPlay connection which also conflicted. 

Phonak needs two versions of Marvel MFi and MFa. I want to love these Oticons but for hearing the Marvels were never a problem for voice compared to  OPN S.

Great comments/review. 

I'm a newbie to HA's.  I'm 71 and have never worn a HA but I have a mild hearing loss, worse one ear.  I'm trying to decide between the Oticon S and the Phonak 70 or 90.  Your review was very helpful.  I just want these so I can hear clearly in restaurants other noisy places, May use it for the iPhone or TV but that's about it.  When you used the Phonak may I ask what model, e.g., 30, 50, 70 or 90 did you use?

Thank you!

I am currently trying the opn s3. I am finding that wind does not disrupt like it does on my phonaks but other than that I believe that the opn’s are simply louder. 

Whatever the technical claims are, I can see no major improvement in distinguishing voices in a crowded room... if anything, because they are louder, the problem is amplified.

Same goes for car noise - distinguishing voices from road noise is worse with these.

I was hopeful, but have yet to find an aid that works for me.

I have been wearing Oticon hearing aids for about 8 years. I recently got the Oticon miniRITE and am disappointed in them.  I expected to to hear more clarity when someone is talking in a crowded room, restaurant, car, etc. I don't see much of an improvement in that situation at all from my old ones. I feel like I just threw away $6000 for no improvement.
