Oticon is one of the world’s leading hearing manufacturers and has just launched the new Oticon Alta hearing device in New Zealand.

“People with hearing loss, like most people, prefer different quality and types of sound. They don’t just want the sound louder,” says Karen Pullar. “The Oticon Alta introduces a new and better way of unlocking a person’s hearing potential.”

Alta’s advanced technology means hearing care professionals can deliver a sound experience that is as unique and individual as each patient, addressing factors like how their ears work, how they process information, sound preferences and experiences.

A powerful new signal processing platform makes it possible for Alta to support a wide range of personalisation possibilities, delivering enhanced speech understanding, improved sound quality and effortless listening,

The Oticon Alta is small and discreet in size and enables the exchange of vital sound information between both ears for a more natural, authentic sound experience.
