Oticon is an industry leader in the development of innovative technologies for people with hearing loss. Oticon’s solutions are designed to help you hear and communicate better, so you can enjoy life more fully. Their commitment and dedication to research and development translate to the incredible sound quality of their hearing aids. Oticon believes everyone should have access to the best hearing solutions available today.
These are the hearing aid models available from Oticon as of October 2023.
Oticon’s newest innovative hearing technology, Oticon Real, was created to handle the “real” sounds of everyday life. The newest sound processing includes improved technologies that balance sudden disruptive sounds, noise handling (ex: hair or glasses touching hearing aids), and wind noise. The advanced technology of Oticon Real includes a Deep Neural Network (DNN), trained with 12 million real-life sound scenes. Overall this improved access to sound allows patients to have increased awareness, engagement, and focus in their daily lives.
Oticon Real is currently available in two styles: a mini receiver-in-the-ear (miniRITE) or a mini behind-the-ear (miniBTE). These devices are appropriate for fitting slight-to-profound hearing losses. They offer two battery options: size 312 or rechargeable.
**Note: Completely-in-the-canal (CIC) and Invisible-in-the-canal (IIC) models do not offer Bluetooth connectivity due to hearing aid size and space limitations.
There’s no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to hearing aids. Oticon Own is crafted to meet your needs in a customized fit to your ear anatomy as well as your lifestyle needs. This product is designed to blend in, so you can stand out first.
Oticon Own is the world’s first in-the-ear (ITE) hearing aid with an onboard Deep Neural Network (DNN). This technology provides you access to more sound and reduces listening effort. This means that even when you’re in a challenging listening environment — like a restaurant, or a meeting at the office — Oticon Own will help you navigate what you need to hear, and reduce your listening effort, so it’s easier for your brain to take on other tasks.
Oticon Own devices are appropriate for fitting mild-to-severe hearing losses. The custom fit is created based on your ear anatomy and is available in a variety of size options. Depending on the desired hearing aid size, there are several disposable battery options including size: 13, 312, or 10.
Bluetooth Connectivity: Streams directly from iPhone and Android™ devices.
App / Remote Help: The Oticon Companion app or Oticon ON app provides support for you to independently make controls and personalize your fitting. Other bonus features inside the app include the “Find my Hearing Aids” feature and Remote Counseling assistance when needed.
Tinnitus Solutions: Oticon offers relief in their Tinnitus SoundSupport™. This feature offers a variety of relief options, including ocean‑like sounds that can be customized for your hearing needs.
The Oticon Zircon is an essential line of technology that builds on Oticon’s BrainHearing philosophy. Zircon balances sound from all directions to maintain clear speech, allowing you to comfortably focus on what you want to hear. The OpenSound Navigator helps reduce unwanted noise — by scanning your sound environment more than 500 times per second. This helps to identify unwanted noise and separate it from relevant speech. The end goal is providing a clear picture of the sound around you, without compromising access to speech.
Oticon Zircon is currently available in two styles: a mini receiver-in-the-ear (miniRITE) or mini behind-the-ear (miniBTE). These devices are appropriate for fitting mild-to-profound hearing losses. They offer two battery options: size 312 or rechargeable.
Single-sided deafness can create several listening challenges including localizing sounds and listening to background noise. The Oticon CROS (contralateral routing of the signal) provides a solution for individuals who are looking for a more fully immersive listening experience. A CROS operates by wearing a transmitter on the unaidable ear, and sounds received from that transmitter are routed to a hearing device worn on the better-hearing ear.
The Oticon CROS is designed for individuals with single-sided deafness and can be fit as either a true CROS or BiCROS (hearing loss is also in the better hearing ear). There is a choice of a rechargeable Oticon CROS PX or a non-rechargeable Oticon CROS transmitter. Both of these devices are compatible with the following product families: Oticon Real™, More™, Zircon, Opn S™, Play PX, Opn Play™, Xceed, Xceed Play, and Ruby.
Hearing loss impacts people of all ages. Oticon Play PX brings sound to life by providing children with access to the full sound scene. Play PX is the first pediatric hearing aid with an onboard Deep Neural network (DNN) that learns the same way children learn – through experience. This advanced technology provides them with optimal hearing for speech and language development in addition to enjoying the magic of childhood.
Oticon Play PX is currently available in two styles: a mini receiver-in-the-ear (miniRITE) or a mini behind-the-ear (miniBTE). These devices are appropriate for fitting slight-to-severe hearing losses. They offer two battery options: size 312 or rechargeable.
Learning in the classroom can be chaotic enough, and adding hearing loss to the equation can create further difficulty. Oticon offers several unique accessories to provide optimal hearing in challenging listening environments:
Oticon Xceed was designed to give power to those who need it, without creating feedback (whistling) or compromised sound quality. The BrainHearing technology found in Xceed scans your surroundings 100 times per second. In research studies, they found that individuals wearing Xceed hearing aids noticed 10% improvements in speech clarity, 10% less listening effort/strain, and 15% improvements in short-term recall. All of these findings suggest patients have an improved ability to handle noisier environments and improve their listening fatigue.
Oticon Xceed is available in the behind-the-ear (BTE) style. These devices are appropriate for fitting severe-to-profound hearing losses. They offer two battery options: size 13 or 675.
Severe hearing loss impacts people of all ages, including children. Oticon Xceed Play is another pediatric hearing aid designed for severe-to-profound hearing losses. Children with significant hearing loss need more support to separate speech from noise in order to develop speech and language. Xceed Play utilizes BrainHearing™ technology, which gives the child access to clearer speech from all directions for listening and learning. This allows them to learn in a way that mimics the way the brain naturally makes sense of sound.
Oticon Xceed Play is available in the behind-the-ear (BTE) style. These devices are appropriate for fitting pediatric patients with severe-to-profound hearing losses. They offer two battery options: size 13 or 675. Both styles also include a fun collection of decorative stickers your child can use to decorate their hearing aids!
Oticon offers several unique accessories to provide optimal hearing for children in challenging listening environments:
The new Oticon Companion app and Oticon ON app offer a wide variety of features that make life simpler with caring for pediatric hearing aids. The app provides several convenient features like: checking the hearing aid battery status, volume adjustments, program changes, and more. These apps also include a “find my hearing aid” feature if hearing aids are misplaced.
With better hearing, you can reconnect with the world around you. Contact us today to setup an appointment.
Oticon EduMic — a classroom remote microphone. EduMic is a classroom hearing solution that provides direct access to the teacher’s voice from a wireless remote microphone to help children manage noise, reverberation, and distance in the classroom. Oticon’s pediatric hearing aids and EduMic work together to maximize children’s speech understanding for language development, learning, and socializing opportunities.
Additional accessories are available to further enhance your hearing aids:

Generally speaking, in-the-ear hearing aids tend to last up to five years, while behind-the-ear hearing aids typically last five to six years. Largely, it depends on how well you take care of your hearing aids. Some patients will decide to upgrade their hearing aids prior to this time, as newer technology is routinely released and may provide greater benefit. An audiologist will be able to guide you in deciding when an upgrade is necessary.
Oticon Real hearing aids were launched in March 2023. Oticon Real hearing aids are built upon the foundations set by the Oticon More platform. Features such as Bluetooth connectivity, artificial intelligence, Deep Neural Network, BrainHearing technology, and waterproof rating were updated in the Real release.
Oticon Real is available in 3 technology levels: Real 3, Real 2 and Real 1. Real 1 being the top-of-the-range model offering more noise management and support.
