Oticon More™

Taking our revolutionary BrainHearing™ technologies to the next level

We created a hearing aid that works more like how the brain works, because it learned through experience

Oticon More is the world’s first hearing aid that uses a fully trained, on-board Deep Neural Network (DNN) to process the sound scene in a more precise and balanced way. This approach gives the brain the important information it needs to more easily make sense of sound. We trained the DNN with 12 million sounds from real life so it could learn from sound the way the brain learns.

The world’s first hearing aid with an on-board DNN that learned from the sounds of the world, the way the brain does

In an effort to take our revolutionary BrainHearing™ technology to the next level, Oticon More has a highly trained, directly embedded Deep Neural Network (DNN) to give the brain more of the information it needs to make sense of sound. Unbound by traditional, rule-based processing algorithms, we trained this DNN with 12 million sounds from real life so it could learn the way the brain does. As a result, it can seamlessly handle virtually all sound scenes with unparalleled precision and clarity to optimally support the brain.

  • Implementing an on-board DNN in a modern hearing aid is a significant technological achievement
  • On-board DNN, engineered to meet the space and power requirements of modern hearing aids
  • Trained with 12 million real life sounds so it could learn from sounds of the world the way the brain learns
  • Precisely analyzes intricate details of virtually all sounds, finding complex patterns in a sound scene
  • Knows how to represent sounds naturally and with clarity, with better contrast and balance
  • Helps the brain, giving it the clear information it needs to make sense of sound

The world’s first platform featuring an embedded DNN

The new Polaris™ platform is the backbone of Oticon More and was built specifically for hearing aids. This focused approach allows it to constantly run a highly trained DNN, while powering all the technologies in Oticon More with more speed, precision and capacity than ever before.*

The new Polaris platform provides:

• 16x more capacity to execute advanced algorithms**
• Intelligent use of industry-leading 64‑channel processing
• Twice the computation capacity and speed**
• 2X precision in 1.5-5kHz frequency bands**
• On-board Deep Neural Network processing

MoreSound Intelligence™

A quantum leap forward in signal processing

Oticon More features a groundbreaking technology, MoreSound Intelligence, that makes it easier for patients to enjoy, follow and engage in conversations by expanding the sound scene. It comprehensively scans and precisely analyzes the sound scene. Then it organizes the sounds around the user and utilizes our highly trained, on-board Deep Neural Network (DNN) to process and create contrast among the identified sounds. The result is a more precise and natural representation of all sounds in a complete and balanced sound scene. This helps the brain orient and focus better, with clear information that makes it easier to make sense of sound for improved speech understanding. Consists of three parts:

  • Scan and analyze: Scans the full sound scene 500 times per second, which results in a precise analysis of all sounds and the complexity of the surroundings.

  • Spatial Clarity processing: Recreates natural spatial cues provided by the pinna by using a Virtual Outer Ear (three true-to-life pinna models that can be chosen based on the patient’s spatial sound needs) and a Spatial Balancer to quickly balance distinct sound sources.

  • Neural Clarity processing: Uses a highly intelligent, on-board DNN to process sound instead of algorithms written and developed by engineers. Trained with 12 million real life sound scenes to learn how to process sounds more like the brain does.

MoreSound Amplifier™

A trailblazing, balanced amplification system

The MoreSound Amplifier in Oticon More is a trailblazing balanced amplification system. It seamlessly adapts its resolution and speed to the nature of the sound scene at hand. And it works precisely and quickly to ensure that important details and dynamics are made audible and available, while maintaining the fine contrast and balance among sounds.* This ensures the brain has access to the important information it needs to make sense of sound and can focus quickly on what is most important.**

  • Six-times increase in resolution for more precise amplification

  • Adaptive speed pilot makes the sound scene available while maintaining contrast and balance between sounds

  • Constant prioritizing of 4-channel or 24-channel paths based on incoming signal
