The long awaited “internet hearing aid” is here. OPN 1 (v4.0) by the renowned manufacturer Oticon. It features very sophisticated design content, superb sound quality and IP68 water and dust resistance. Featuring 1.2 billion operations p/s (meaning it is twice as fast at processing than Phonak, its main competitor), 64 frequency channels and dual-radio transmission: utilising near field Bluetooth and 2.4GHz.
The most interesting and popular feature of the Opn is its direct connection and binaural streaming to iPhone and iPad IOS devices… meaning you can listen to calls and music in stereo directly from your mobile. With the addition of an Apple watch, you can do this without even touching the phone.
The feature that hasn’t yet been explored fully, is the IFTTT integration. Effectively, you can link your hearing aids to many other WiFi devices, such as Amazon Echo, Hue lights, Ring Doorbell, etc. and create triggers and alarms. For example, your Ring Doorbell can signal movement nearby straight to your hearing aids!
We have the Opn in stock in various versions and colours, including a limited special edition in pink.
You can try a pair on day 1 and walk away to evaluate these in your own time.
