It might not be a surprise to those with hearing loss that research has shown hearing speech in noise is the number one challenge.[1] Just think of a busy restaurant or trying to have a conversation over the sound of the television. Traditional hearing aid devices understand sounds, but don’t always understand what you want to listen to. Oticon Intent™ https://earandhearing.com.au/hearing-aids-brands/oticon/oticon-intent/ is a new hearing aid designed to meet this challenge.

How can Oticon Intent understand you?

Our ears receive sound, but it’s our brain that gives sound meaning. That’s why Oticon develops hearing aids designed to support the brain, like Oticon Intent. In conversation, you might keep your head still to listen to just one person or move your head in a group conversation to engage with different people. When struggling to hear what someone is saying, you might lean in to listen. Oticon Intent combines these motions to understand what you want to listen to and give you personalised support for that situation.[2]

“…up to 20 hours of battery life”

Does it connect to my devices?

With next-generation Bluetooth® connectivity via Bluetooth LE Audio, Oticon Intent delivers easy connection for hands-free calls and direct streaming from compatible devices.[3]

Do I need batteries?

Oticon Intent is rechargeable and offers up to 20 hours of battery life, so you don’t have to worry about running out of battery. You can also drop your hearing aids into the charger for 30 minutes for up to 8 hours of battery life.[4]

So, if you or a loved one are finding it difficult to hear in noise, or wear hearing aids but could use more support, it’s worth considering how new hearing aids like Oticon Intent can help. Call us on 1300-761-667 to find out how you can try Oticon Intent at Ear and Hearing Australia.
