Additionally, Oticon Play PX is the world’s “first” pediatric hearing aid with an integrated deep neural network designed to learn and recognize sounds the same way children do, through experience. Oticon SmartCharger is a rechargeable solution for users on the go. The company will soon launch Oticon Own, a new family of personalized hearing aids developed for discretion and superior sound quality.

“We are extremely proud of our tradition of bringing life-changing products to market,” said Nancy Palmere Mucha, Director of Marketing and Public Relations. “We’ve been doing it since 1904, and that tradition has grown stronger over the decades, especially in the last 25 years! Our expertise in the field of hearing health and its ability to improve the world of people with hearing loss has enabled our success, as well as that of our professional partners.

The company was founded in 1904, employs more than 2,000 people worldwide and its products are sold in more than 100 countries, according to another spokesperson. The company’s global headquarters are located near Copenhagen, Denmark.

Oticon’s first US headquarters were established in Union City in 1967; they moved to Somerset in 1979, then in 2012 to their current Somerset home at 580 Howard Avenue. Located on approximately nine acres in a corporate setting, the five-story office complex features state-of-the-art production facilities; a modern distribution center; internal sales, marketing, customer service and audiology departments; a human resources department; and a training and education center.

The building also houses the administrative support of Oticon’s parent company, Demant (Copenhagen), covering functions such as accounting, administration and IT. In the United States, Oticon employs approximately 500 staff, including audiologists; engineers; technicians; sales, marketing and customer service specialists; and administrative staff. Most US employees work in the Somerset offices.

Oticon’s culture of innovation has enabled the company to introduce several technological breakthroughs that have made a significant difference for people with hearing loss, the company said. All Oticon hearing aids feature the company’s exclusive ‘BrainHearing’ technology. This ‘brain-first’ approach delivers sound with what Oticon calls the ‘clearest, purest possible sound signal’ to support the brain’s ability to make sense of sound and significantly reduce the cognitive load of the user. Additionally, Oticon was the first hearing aid manufacturer to highlight the link between hearing health and cognitive decline, the company said.

“At Oticon, we believe that hearing care is healthcare,” Mucha explained. “Our continued success depends on our ability to support independent hearing care professionals not only with top-of-the-line technology, but also with the audiology and marketing support they need to reach and fit more patients. We are committed to promoting the importance of professional hearing care, and we reinforce this commitment by providing our hearing solutions only to providers who fit and sell Oticon products to patients through consultations, assessments and face-to-face fittings. face to face.
