Find Out More About Dolores
The “Get” hearing aid from Oticon is designed to offer comfort and high functionality to facilitate speech intelligibility. Described by the company as an “entry-level” device, the hearing aid is built on the firm’s RISE processing platform. The product line offers modulation-based noise reduction, in situ audiometry, and is available in a variety of designs and colors. Custom versions of the hearing aid also are provided.
The behind-the-ear versions of the devices are protected by a water-repellant nano-coating to improve durability. The hearing aids are offered with the firm’s proprietary “open ear acoustics” to reduce feedback and distortion of the wearer’s own voice resulting from the occlusion effect. The Get line can correct mild to severe-to-profound hearing loss.
