Oticon Real Hearing Aids Range

Oticon Real Hearing Aids

Reviews, styles, features & benefits

 

Introduction to Oticon Real hearing aids

At the Oticon Real hearing aid launch in early March, we were told that "the real world is open, not closed.  Stay sharp in the real world".  They were, of course, referring to how far they had come since the launch of Opn, back in 2016, which included 360-degree sound and the open sound Oticon customers have loved ever since.

If we look back, there have been a plethora of innovations from this brand.  In 2019, OpenSound Navigator came and provided proactive feedback technology with OpnS.  Then Deep Neural Network added a new dimension to the way sound is processed in Oticon's 2021 More hearing aid launch.  Oticon Own launched in 2022, which offered custom In-Ear options for those who wanted More's technology. 

Each range evolving and picking up where the last one left off.  But, what about Oticon Real?  How does this hearing aid range compare to its predecessor?  The best place to start would be discovering what is better and what has improved since Oticon More below.

Oticon Real Hearing Aid Features

Oticon Real hearing aids vs More hearing aids

Oticon Real hearing aids

What are the improvements since Oticon More?

Oticon Real hearing aids mirror the foundations set by Oticon More and built upon them.  Such as Bluetooth connectivity, artificial intelligence, Deep Neural Network (DNN), BrainHearing technology and waterproof rating.

Along with developments in their general technology, we saw in More, like the MoreSound Amplifier and MoreSound Intelligence (all now 2.0) - everything is now powered by a new and powerful processing chip - the Polaris R.

But, the main improvement in Real is a greater focus on solving key pains for hearing aid users.  Such as sudden, disruptive and uncomfortable sounds, which unsurprisingly 7/10 of hearing aid users are bothered by (study of 700 people).  These are generally:

  • Sudden soft sounds
  • Sudden loud sounds
  • Uncorrelated sounds that follow no pattern, such as wind noise
  • Handling noise, such as hair or fingers touching hearing aids

All these new features are a part of the new RealSound technology, but which technology tackles which common pain for hearing aid users?  Let's find out... 

Oticon Real hearing aids MoreSound Amplifier 2.0

Oticon Real hearing aid's MoreSound Amplifier 2.0 solves sudden sounds, such as soft and loud

Within this technology includes the Sudden Sound Stabiliser, which recognises 500,000 sudden sounds of everyday life.  This technology reacts quickly by identifying and stabilising these sudden sounds.  How does this help your hearing?  It preserves speech understanding and audibility and gives you better access to speech with high precision.

There are also six personal preferences that can personalise how sensitive you are to these sounds.  These range from OFF or low (60 dBSpl / 10 dB) to max (40 dBSpl / 30 dB).  For example, if you were using Oticon's MyMusic you would turn this feature OFF, as all sounds are relevant in order for you to enjoy. 

If you are an experienced user you might be set at medium and if you aren't perhaps your audiologist would start you at high.  But, don't worry this will all be personalised to your hearing needs at your fitting.



Oticon real hearing aids listening effort

When we compare Oticon Real hearing aids with More there is improved speech clarity and access in the presence of all sudden sounds.  The advanced wind management system also gives you a reduction of 22% listening effort since More where Wind Noise is concerned.  Solidifying that the new Wind Noise and Handling Stabiliser in Real is more effective than More's Wind Noise Management.

Oticon Real hearing aid's MoreSound Intelligence 2.0 with DNN technology solves wind noise and handling noise

When taking wind noise into account, you will benefit from the Wind and Handling Stabiliser feature that tackles this quickly and in a much more robust way.  This feature does this by switching off the microphone in the hearing aid that is picking up the most wind noise so that this is automatically reduced.  Ultimately improving speech clarity in noise too.

They tested and measured this technology by using a Poul La Cour Tunnel with Oticon Real hearing aids and two other leading competitors.  When compared to Real, one competitor device was 22% louder wind noise, whilst the other showed 17% less speech clarity in noise.

Oticon Real hearing aids technology

As mentioned earlier, handling noise might be hair being brushed or running your finger over the microphone.  Using the Wind and Handling Stabiliser, means that when comparing Oticon Real hearing aids to other leading competitors, the competitors were between 14dB and 19dB louder. 

What is good is that although the lower the performance level of this range means you'll get less noise reduction, you will get the same Wind and Noise Handling at all levels.

What else is new and what has stayed the same with Oticon Real hearing aids?

There's a new app called Companion which includes new features like Speech Booster, Troubleshooting and Remote Care (before, you had to download a separate app for this).  As this app is compatible with all devices since Opn, we highly recommend that you make the switch to this new app, as the Oticon ONN app with no longer be available very soon.

They are slowly introducing Voice Notifications through this new app, which will start with low battery level and evolve from there as app updates.  There is also a new colour - Olive Green - which is only exclusively available in the miniRITE R model.  Finally there is no change in the accessory or charging system offerings.

Oticon Real Hearing Aid Reviews

Review of Oticon Real hearing aids by our audiologists

 

So, what do we think of Oticon Real hearing aids?

Even though this range isn't flashy in its world firsts - overall Oticon Real is a great hearing aid range offering advanced sound quality that continues to be a favourite for those who desire a natural open sound experience. 

This is one of the reasons why Oticon will continue to be one of the most popular hearing aid manufacturers in the industry.  We predict that loyal Oticon consumers will be impressed with the additional focus on tackling the annoyance of sudden, disruptive and uncomfortable sounds - which have, until now, been overlooked by other brands.

 

Pros of Oticon Real hearing aids

  • Natural open sound
  • More comfortable listening experience in wind and background noise when compared to other Oticon models
  • Both rechargeable and disposable models available

 

Cons of Oticon Real hearing aids

  • Oticon Real hearing aids come with advanced technology features, such as BrainHearing technology, so they do come with a premium price tag.
  • Bluetooth connectivity with Android is significantly better than past hearing aids, however, you should check with your audiologist to see if your current smartphone is compatible.
