Did you know you hear with your brain, not your ears? That’s a question Kelley Olenick, Au.D. of Hearing Zone in Pocatello and Blackfoot, often asks people coming in for a hearing check-up. The lesson is a valuable one. Studies have repeatedly shown that people with hearing loss have an increased risk of dementia. The good news: Wearing hearing aids can significantly reduce the risk of cognitive decline associated with hearing loss.
Dr. Olenick is one of the first hearing care professionals in the US to offer Oticon More™, a new hearing aid that gives the brain more of what it needs to make better sense of sound, so you can get more out of life. The revolutionary hearing aid is the first to feature an on-board Deep Neural Network, trained on 12 million real-life sounds.
“New Oticon More works more like how your brain works, because it learned through experience,” explains Dr. Olenick. “The Deep Neural Network in Oticon More is trained with 12 million real life sounds to recognize virtually all types of sounds to support your brain. This enables you to receive a more natural representation of listening. You benefit with improved speech understanding with less listening effort and the ability to remember more, even in noisy situations.”
Today, staying connected to family and friends is more important than ever. Oticon More lets you enjoy easy wireless connectivity to your favorite devices. You can enjoy the convenience of direct streaming from iPhone®, iPad® and Android™ devices.* If you want the convenience of rechargeable batteries, Oticon More miniRITE R is available in a discreet lithium–ion-based rechargeable solution that provides a full day of battery life**, including streaming, after just three hours of charging.
“More connections, more conversations, more life! Oticon More brings you closer to the sounds of life that should be heard, not missed,” says Dr. Olenick.
