Give your child better opportunities to learn
Children are curious to discover the world around them. Part of that discovery takes place through their ears. However, children with hearing loss need more assistance to learn words and develop social and language skills. The earlier they get help, the better.
So-called incidental learning occurs when children overhear what is being said around them, rather than through direct teaching. Therefore, it is essential that children are able to extract speech from background noise. Oticon Opn Play gives your child with hearing loss the right conditions to make sense out of sound.
Open up to a breakthrough in paediatric hearing care
Oticon Opn Play gives your child 360º access to the world and helps your child differentiate between meaningful sound and irrelevant disturbing sound.
New technology improves speech understanding in noisy environments and supports incidental learning by giving your child access to multiple speakers in the environment.
From traditional technology to revolutionary open sound
Before Oticon Opn Play your child could be either overloaded with access to all sounds and noise whether relevant or not, if fitted with traditional omni directional technology. Or they would be fitted with traditional directional technology which closes down sounds and restricts the opportunity to learn.
Oticon Opn Play marks the change from listening to the world, to truly making sense of the world. The groundbreaking innovation lets your child enjoy a full, balanced soundscape.
How your child can get 360º access to sound
The OpenSound Navigator™ feature opens up your child’s world. It gives your child 360° access to the world and helps your child differentiate between meaningful sound and irrelevant disturbing sound, without reducing environmental sounds important to incidental learning and safety.
OpenSound Navigator makes it easier for the brain to decide who and what to listen to and to pay attention when needed. This is a great support when your child is in school, on the playground or in traffic.
Up to 30% improved speech understanding
Test results show that the groundbreaking technology in Oticon Opn Play offers up to 30% improvement in speech recognition – even when facing away from the person talking.
Since children are lively and may not always face the person speaking this is a great advantage. Just as significantly, Oticon Opn Play also reduces the effort that children need to make in order to listen, allowing them to use more effort on other activities such as learning.
Finally, the optimal fitting without the risk of whistling sounds
A well-fit hearing aid is key to optimal language development and learning. Up until now, managing feedback often required a compromise between providing your child with optimal amplification or avoiding feedback (the high pitch whistle). OpenSound Optimizer™ changes all of this**.
With the groundbreaking OpenSound Optimizer, hearing care professionals can now fit your child with optimal gain without the risk of the whistling sound. This provides your child with increased comfort.
Oticon Opn Play prevents annoying feedback before it occurs
Giving children the amplification they need can cause annoying whistling sounds when something comes too close to a hearing aid. This is called feedback. Growing ears and situations where children play, hug or cover their ears with things like hats, can create this annoying sound. It used to be challenging to manage – until Oticon Opn Play.
The breakthrough proactive technology in Oticon Opn Play prevents this feedback before it occurs without compromising sound quality and clarity**. This allows your child to easily follow conversations, which is essential to language development, but won’t have to worry about annoying “squeals”.
Connecting your child to the world
Oticon Opn Play connects seamlessly with modern smartphones and tablets. With the optional ConnectClip your child’s hearing aid turns into a high-quality headset. This gives your child access to wireless streaming for music, movies, phone calls and more from smartphones, tablets and laptops.
Oticon’s ConnectClip remote microphone makes it easier for your child to communicate with friends and family where distance or noise are involved. This includes the classroom, in the car, at the playground or if you are walking your child in a stroller.
It can be a challenge for your child or teenager to hear the voice of the teacher in noisy classrooms and lecture halls. Amigo FM is designed to overcome the effects of distance and noise and catch as much instruction as possible.
