Oticon showcases Opn hearing aid technology at CES 2017

ces 2017

Oticon showcased the Oticon Opn, an audiology and hearing aid technology, at the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2017) in Las Vegas.

Oticon Opn is, according to the firm, the world’s first hearing aid to connect to the Internet via the IFTTT network. The small, discreet hearing aid can be programmed to talk directly with doorbells, smoke detectors & other smart devices via the Oticon ON App. As revealed by the firm, in its core function as a listening device, Opn overcomes a challenge the most advanced hearing solutions can’t solve: the ability to handle noisy environments with multiple speakers.

At CES 2017, Oticon offered interactive displays and hands-on demonstrations of Opn’s internet connectivity and functionality.  To add to the experience, Oticon audiologists and IoT specialists were on hand to give visitors a unique smart home experience of Opn in action, featuring a range of connected technology including smart doorbells, TVs, lighting, safety equipment and appliances.

Innovation Awards Honoree in Two Categories
Oticon Opn was honoured with 2017 CES Innovations Awards in two categories – Tech for a Better World and Wearable Technologies. Opn’s presence in both underlines Oticon’s commitment to develop hearing solutions that make a real difference to people’s lives, embracing an “Internet of Things That Matter” and leveraging the benefits of smart devices and connected homes.
