IMG_0133In Athlone, most people assume that hearing is something that happens in your ears.  In fact, it’s actually in your brain that sound becomes information that has meaning.

“With hearing loss, the sound signal that the brain is accustomed to processing is different,” says Audiologist Martin Shannagher of Hidden Hearing Athlone. “The brain has to work harder to fill in the blanks. That’s why hearing loss can be so tiring and can drain the mental energy people need for everyday activities.”

Luckily, the newest hearing solutions with Brain Hearing™ technology offer exciting, new choices for people with hearing loss.  Martin Shannagher, Audiologist in Hidden Hearing Athlone was one of the first hearing care professionals in Athlone to offer Oticon Opn™, a revolutionary new hearing aid with Brain Hearing™ technology.  With new Oticon Opn, people with hearing loss not only hear better without having to work as hard but they also remember more of what is said. Powered by an ultra-fast sound processor, Opn expertly manages multiple speech and noise sources so people hear better with less effort even in challenging listening situations like restaurants or social gatherings.

Martin Shanagher“Oticon Opn is the first hearing aid proven to make it easier on the brain,” explains Martin Shannagher, Audiologist in Hidden Hearing Athlone  “Testing consistently shows that Opn increases speech understanding, the parameter most important to hearing aid wearers, by 30%*.  People who wear Opn also experience 20% less listening effort* when trying to understand speech.  And because Oticon Opn wearers use less effort understanding, they are able to remember 20% more of what was said**.”

Martin Shannagher, Audiologist in Hidden Hearing Athlone notes that the small, discreet hearing aid is powerhouse of innovative technology. The Velox™ platform processes sound data 50 times faster than before – scanning, analysing and reacting to sounds in the environments more than 100 times per second.  This extreme speed allows wearers to enjoy a full sound picture.  They can follow the sounds they want to hear and shift their attention when desired.  Surrounding sounds are available but not intrusive so wearers can focus on the sounds they prefer.

Oticon Opn also offers easy connectivity to a variety of smartphones and devices.  Audio is streamed directly to the hearing aids using a technology that minimises battery consumption.  A free, downloadable Oticon Opn app lets wearers’ control volume, program or device selection and other functions with just a tap of their smartphone.
