2020 Hearing supplies Oticon More, the world's first hearing aid with an on-board deep neural network. Trained on 12M real-life sounds it works like the brain for optimal hearing performance

Oticon More is the latest introduction to Oticon’s hearing aid portfolio. Oticon More delivers the first-ever hearing aids built with an on-board deep neural network (DNN), to give people with mild-to-severe hearing loss a fuller, more balanced and more effortless hearing experience.

The DNN in Oticon More has been trained on 12 million real-life sounds which gives the brain more of the information it needs to decipher and interpret the intricate details of sound. Using this extensive experiential learning as a basis – not on a limited set of man-made rules – it processes speech in noise more like the human brain. The end result is a more natural expression of sounds that improves wearers’ speech understanding, reduces listening effort and enables people with hearing loss to remember more of what is being said, especially in noisy environments.

“With Oticon More, wearers receive a more natural representation of all sounds,” says Donald Schum, PhD, Vice President of Audiology, Oticon, Inc. “The DNN in Oticon More has learned the way the brain learns, naturally over time. Every sound that passes through the hearing aid is compared to the results discovered in the learning phase. This enables Oticon More to provide a more natural, full and precisely balanced sound scene, making it easier for the brain to perform optimally.”

World class innovation in sound processing technology ensures Oticon More provides wearers with the information they need to decipher sounds and fully engage in any conversation. The hearing aid scans and analyzes the sound scene 500 times per second, capturing and processing the intricate details of sound with better contrast, balance and clarity than ever before.
