Important note: You may be confused by the naming convention of Oticon hearing aids. This is likely due to the renaming policy of one of the large national retailers. This makes it more difficult for you to compare models like-for-like. However we have listed the alternate names alongside the genuine names as given by Oticon and as shown on the official Oticon website. If you have been quoted for any hearing aids named similar to 'H150' or 'K140' etc then please call us or check our pricelist here.
Oticon is a world leading manufacturer of hearing aids from Denmark, with a UK base in Hamilton, Scotland, where all their custom made products are made; they are in our opinion one of the leading hearing aid manufacturers due to the crisp clear sound that is often commented upon. Oticon launched their new ultra fast chipset called INIUM in 2013 and the top-end Alta Pro and mid-rangeNera Pro use this platform which allows Oticon to make full use of the advanced new features giving exceptional results for speech in noise.
The Oticon Alta Pro and the Oticon Intiga are amongst the most advanced digital hearing aids currently available with stylistic design and wireless connectivity , we can now fit these new mini-BTE hearing aids to most hearing losses. We can also supply custom in-the-ear models for those who prefer not to wear behind-the-ear hearing aids, including the new Oticon Intiga IIC invisible-in-canal hearing aids (scroll down for more information on these).

WIRELESS CONNECTIVITY - via 'Oticon Connectline' - The Connectline includes four accessories which allow the hearing aid wearer to connect to other devices to greatly enhance their listening ability with regards to speech.
1. The Oticon Streamer Pro (image) - A dual purpose remote control / wireless receiver which can be used for changing the programme setting and volume control of the hearing aids, and also for wireless connection to other devices via Bluetooth (such as your mobile phone, PC or iPod / MP3 player), and to the other Connectline devices mentioned below. The Oticon Streamer also has an integrated telecoil loop facility so you can use the loop even in hearing aids that do not have a telecoil feature (such as the Intiga mini-RITE).
2. The Oticon Connectline Phone v2.0 adaptor (image) - This device plus into the back end of a landline phone and allows the user of a Streamer Pro to intercept all calls and take the call wirelessly. i.e. the caller is heard direct in the hearing aids, and the hearing aid wearer's voice is streamed back via a microphone on the Streamer Pro, which is worn around the neck. The range of the Phone adaptor is 30m.
3. The Oticon Connectline TV v2.0 adaptor (image) - The TV adaptor plugs into the audio output of a TV or SKY / Freeview box, and streams the sound signal direct to the hearing aids. This greatly enhances the signal and is especially good for those who sit quite far from their TV set.
4. The Oticon Connectline Remote Microphone (image) - This device is very small and is worn by a 3rd party to transmit their voice direct to the hearing aids via the Streamer Pro, which is worn around the wearers neck. A good example of where this may help is in the car where you may not be able to take advantage of lip reading because you are focusing on driving. The range for the remote microphone is 15m.
