Oticon plans to support that goal with hands-on experiences and in-depth introductions to the newest Oticon life-changing technology and world-class business support.

Oticon will be displaying its new Oticon Real hearing aids along with its full line of hearing solutions, including Oticon Own, Zircon, and Play PX.

“At Oticon, we know the future of hearing healthcare is a powerful combination of innovative technology and the expertise of qualified hearing care practitioners who fit our products,” said Oticon President Gary Rosenblum. “Through professional knowledge-sharing events, like AAA 2023 + HearTech, we aim to connect with practitioners, introducing them to the life-changing technology and the business services they need to thrive in a fiercely competitive hearing healthcare arena.”

New Oticon Real™ will take center stage at the Oticon exhibit (#618), showcasing the next step in Oticon BrainHearing™ technology.  Oticon Real is designed to help patients experience the full open sound scene with fewer disruptions, so they stay sharp and focused, especially when engaged in conversation. Oticon Real opens up the full 360° sound scene, building on the revolutionary open sound experience of Oticon Opn™ and the on-board Deep Neural Network of Oticon More™, to provide access to the full spectrum of real-world sounds.

Also on display are several Oticon “firsts”, including Oticon Own™, the world’s first custom hearing aid with an on-board Deep Neural Network and Oticon Zircon, a behind-the-ear hearing aid that brings the power of Polaris and the open sound experience to the essential hearing aid category for the first time. Oticon Play PX represents a groundbreaking first in the pediatric category, as it represents the first pediatric hearing aid with an on-board Deep Neural Network that learned the way children learn, through experience.
