Louisianan Audiologist Shares His Professional Opinion On Oticon More RITE Hearing Aids

I have been fitting people with Oticon hearing aids for twelve years now, and there’s a lot to love. Some of their top features are:

  • More sounds are delivered to the brain.
  • Their BrainHearing technology recognizes more ambient sounds.
  • Direct streaming from tech apps to the hearing aids is standard.
  • Recharged batteries last for a full day.

Oticon More has been awarded multiple awards for their technology, including CES’s 2021 Innovation Award, MEDTECH’s 2021 Breakthrough Award, and AI’s 2021 Excellence Award. Oticon More was also a RedDot 2021 winner for its BrainHearing technology and slim design.

But here I’d like to focus on just one of their hearing aid offerings – Oticon More RITE.

What Makes Oticon More RITE Hearing Aids Different?

Oticon More RITE hearing aids are smaller, slimmer, and more discreet than their Hearing More aids. Also:

  • Oticon More MiniRITE T style includes a telecoil and disposable batteries.
  • Oticon More MiniRITE R style can be recharged overnight or while out and about, thanks to their SmartCharger.

Try Out The Oticon More RITE

  1. Oticon More RITE with BrainHearing™ technology gives the brain more information to make better sense of sound. It recognizes 12 million sounds and knows which ones matter, and then it delivers those to your brain so you can understand speech and other sounds more easily. This means you don’t have to work as hard to listen
  2. The telecoil feature is very helpful for my patients who work in an office setting and have to attend multiple meetings and conferences.

A telecoil is sort of like an antenna in the hearing aid that picks up a speaker’s voice much more clearly and shuts out background noise. Many event settings are adding this telecoil loop system — also called a hearing loop or audio induction loop — to their sound systems, but it’s not yet available everywhere.

  1. The direct streaming feature is very handy in that you can make hands-free calls from any iPhone or smartphone. You can also stream TV sound to your hearing aids with Oticon’s TV adapter.
  2. The ability to recharge hearing aids while away from home is amazing, and a three-hour charge with their portable SmartCharger powers the aids for a full day. A 30-minute charge will power it for six hours.
  3. Oticon MyMusic offers program settings that sharpen the sound quality when listening to music either live or when streaming it.
  4. ConnectClip is a remote microphone that connects with your hearing aid phone app via Bluetooth and helps pick out speech from a distance.
  5. Tinnitus SoundSupport helps manage tinnitus symptoms by providing masking sounds that can relieve the sounds of tinnitus.

What I Like Most About Oticon Hearing Aids

Oticon’s sound quality is really good, and the ability to recharge their hearing aids is amazing.

My patients love their sleek design. They have a very slim fit that hides behind the ear well.
