Oticon's Mini Power BTE: Superior Performance,
Wireless Connectivity and Appealing Cosmetics for
People with Severe Hearing Loss
Oticon, Inc. today unveiled the Mini Power BTE, a new hearing solution based on Oticon's industry-leading RISE microchip platform that addresses the needs of Power users for superior performance, wireless connectivity and discreet modern design. The Mini Power BTE significantly expands fitting potential for moderately to severely hearing impaired people with a range of small, robust, 13 Battery solutions. Available across the company's Epoq, Vigo and Hit product families. The compact mini power solutions feature FM compatibility, long battery life and an array of features and price points.
"With the new Mini Power BTEs, people with severe hearing loss will hear more and understand more," states Oticon President Peer Lauritsen. "And with wireless connectivity, power users can easily communicate through cell phones and landline phones and enjoy TV and other Bluetooth recreational devices -- helping them to normalize their social experiences."
The Epoq XW, W and V Mini Power BTE Power solutions feature advanced wireless capabilities and extended 10 kHz bandwidth for enhanced performance in the most difficult listening situations. The state-of-the-art Spatial Sound compression system helps to maintain the naturally occurring interaural difference between the signals arriving at the two ears, a key to a user's ability to localize sound.
With the addition of the Bluetooth Streamer, Epoq Power solutions connect wirelessly to Bluetooth-enabled communication and entertainment devices including landline and cell phones, televisions, MP3 players, personal computers, laptops and radios. Sound is streamed wirelessly from the Bluetooth devices to the user's hearing devices.
This two-ear advantage is further enhanced with the new ConnectLineT Phone Adapter that makes any landline phone Bluetooth-compatible. The ConnectLineT TV Adapter allows users to understand television at a volume that works for them anywhere in the room without disturbing other viewers.
Vigo Pro and Vigo Mini Power BTEs deliver an unsurpassed combination of style, features and performance in a mid-priced hearing solution. The Hit Pro and Hit Mini Power BTEs offer cost-conscious users who require higher amplification straightforward solutions that combine design, size, performance, handling capabilities and value.
The new Mini Power BTEs are fully compatible with a range of FM solutions including the sleek Amigo R12 FM receiver, the Oticon FM 9 adapter and the slim DAI adapter AP 900.
The compact mini power solutions feature a 13 battery for longer battery life and comfort without compromising the hearing solution's sleek, aesthetic appeal.
