Oticon Opn S Key Features
Released in April 2019, the Oticon Opn S family of hearing aids has improved upon the outstanding success of the Oticon Opn hearing aids. Oticon Opn has without doubt been Focus Hearing’s most requested and popular hearing aid. Now, with the release of the latest Opn S hearing aids this trend is set to continue.
The key features and improvements of the Opn S range of hearing aids include:
- Enhanced OpenSound Navigator™ opens up your soundscape that allows you to hear clearly from all directions

The Oticon Opn S hearing aid family is available in four discreet behind the ear styles, all of which are available in various colours to blend with your hair and skin tones. The four styles are:
- miniRITE R (rechargeable)

Key Features and Benefits
The Upgraded Open Sound Experience
Oticon Opn S features an upgraded version of the OpenSound Navigator that was first released in the Opn hearing aid family.
Previous hearing aids would attempt to help people hear in background noise with directional microphone technology, where the hearing aids would focus predominantly on the speaker directly in front of the person. Which meant that the person often missed important information from those who were seated beside or around them.
However, with Oticon Opn S and its groundbreaking new ‘Velux S™’ platform, new detectors monitor changes in the acoustic environment with 56,000 measurements per second, which allows it to follow rapidly changing conversations with multiple speakers in in noisy sound environments. The new Opn S technology gives access to all speakers and lets you decide what you want to focus on.
Rechargeable Option For the Opn S
The Oticon Opn S is now available as a fully rechargeable hearing aid system using reliable and stable Lithium-Ion technology. This option adds a level of simplicity to the hearing experience as you never have to worry about changing hearing aid batteries again.
Simply charge the Opn S each night when you remove the hearing aids for bed, and wake to a full charge to enable a whole days use. In fact, the system is fully charged after only 3 hours, and if you forget to charge overnight a quick 30 minute charge will allow 6 hours of use.
Currently the rechargeable option for Opn S is only available in the premium level technology (Opn S1)
Full Connectivity with Oticon Opn S
Made for iPhone Hearing Aids
Oticon Opn S wirelessly connects directly to your iPhone without the need for an additional neck worn accessory. The hearing aids double as a wireless headset which allows you to enjoy perfectly clear audio (from phone calls, music or video) streamed directly to the hearing aids.
ConnectClip: Hands-Free Streaming From All Smartphones
With the Oticon ConnectClip accessory, you can stream high quality sound to both hearing aids from either Android or iPhone, including phone calls, music and video audio, using 2.4GHz Bluetooth low energy technology.
This allows for stereo streaming to both ears, free from unwanted noise and low battery consumption.
Oticon ON App
The new Oticon ON App allows you to seamlessly and discreetly control your hearing aids. You can adjust volume, change listening programs, access user instructions, check battery status or even use the ‘find my hearing aid’ feature if you happen to misplace your hearing aids.
TV Adaptor 3.0
Wirelessly stream the TV dialogue directly to your Oticon Opn hearing aids without the need for a neck worn Bluetooth accessory. Set the volume to your preference for crystal clear audio. Anyone else in the room hears the TV normally.
If you do not have an iPhone to use the Oticon ON app, you can still discreetly regulate the colume, change programs or simply turn off your hearing aids with the very handy remote control from Oticon.
Connect To The Internet
With Oticon Opn and the Oticon ON App, you can access the IFTTT (If This Then That) internet based service which allows you to ‘connect’ your Opn hearing aids with a vast range of products and services such as home appliances, mobile phone, lighting systems, emails, calender events and many more. For example:
- Receive notification in your hearing aids 15 minutes before an important calender event
- Change your hearing aids into TV mode when you give a voice command
- Receive text-to-voice notification into your hearing aids if someone rings your doorbell
