Testing Opn on discerning ears

Sound quality for both music and speech is very important to the listening experience of a hearing aid wearer. In a recent study in the Hearing Review*, 10 musicians and 10 non-musicians compared Opn against older technology while listening to music and speech. Naturalness and clarity were judged by both groups as significantly better for Opn, particularly for the musicians.

Velox technologies preserve the musical details

Velox technologies preserve the musical details

Music appreciation is a cognitive process. Specialized BrainHearing technologies work in synergy to deliver high quality, distortion-free sound that’s rich in detail.

A broad bandwidth and wide dynamic range are also key contributors to sound quality for music. Clear Dynamics expands the input dynamic range, processing input sounds up to 113 dB SPL to provide better sound quality without distortion and artifact at loud input levels, while still keeping intact the sound quality of soft input levels.
