HONG KONG SAR – 8 March 2021 – This year Oticon launches a new, revolutionary hearing aid called Oticon More™, which is the world’s first hearing aid with an on-board Deep Neural Network (DNN) that allows users to hear all relevant sounds. Oticon More™ is powered by an entirely new chipset, Polaris™, boasting an eightfold increase in memory and twice the processing power compared to the previous generation, Velox S™.

The new Oticon More™ makes use of the new BrainHearing™ technology to provide users access to clear sound scenes in which the meaningful sounds are in balance and stand out from the background.

Otic is the exclusive distributor of Oticon hearing aids brand in Hong Kong. Oticon is one of the world’s leading hearing aid manufacturers and has over 100 years of history in the industry. Otic understands the everyday needs of modern hearing aid users.

Oticon More™ – An Award-Winning Hearing Aid
Oticon More™ is the next level in the evolution of advanced hearing aid technology, featuring DNN. The intelligent DNN mimics the human brain. It is trained with 12 million real-life sound scenes to give the brain more of the information it needs to decipher the intricate details of sound, so that hearing aid users can better focus on what matters to them without losing track of the meaningful sounds happening around them.

With the innovations of this groundbreaking technology, Oticon More™ has won two 2021 Customers Electronics Associaton (CES) Innovation Awards. CES is the most influential tech event in the world.
