Oticon Hearing Aids – The Current Portfolio
The latest Oticon portfolio is quite confusing as they have split up their styles and performance levels.
The very best & latest hearing aid by Oticon is ‘Oticon MORE’ – built on the new Polaris chipset – BUT it is only available as a rechargeable receiver-in-canal hearing aid (from January 2021).
Other premium range hearing aid styles (ITE, RIC and BTE) are available as Oticon OPN-S and the XCEED – both built on the second generation Velux (S) chipset.
Custom in-ear hearing aids are still only available as Oticon OPN on the original older Velux chipset.
Lower specification hearing aids are also split up as follows:
The latest technology being Oticon RUBY – but only available as receiver-in-canal (normal battery, and rechargeable).
For low specification in-ear and BTE hearing aids see the Oticon SYIA range.
See the table below for clarity.
Oticon Alta, Nera, Ria and Dynamo are all superseded.
