FEATURES OF THE
OTICON'S "MORE" SERIES
WHY MORE IS BETTER!
Oticon introduced it's latest MORE series in January of 2021.
The series includes the MORE 1, MORE 2, & MORE 3. The numbers
represent different technology levels with the MORE 1 being the
highest technology and MORE 3
being the most basic. In our office, we only carry the top two
Features and Improvements
is a continuation of the Velox STM platform used
in the successful Opn S, but ....MORE is
Oticon's MORE uses a new, powerful platform called
Polaris to make it even easier for the brain to decode sound
Here's how and what the new features are:
MORE SOUND INTELLIGENCE:
MORE includes a Deep Neural Network (DNN) chip that includes 12
million sounds scenes from real life that process sounds similar to
the way the brain learns to process sound and speech to provide more
clarity making meaningful sounds

Tests show the Oticon More increases speech understanding by 15%
when compared to the Oticon Opn S1.

SOUND AMPLIFIER (MSA):
Polaris platform, the hearing aid's computational and working
memory are doubled compared to the Opn S. Inputs are modified
to better prepare the signal for the 64 channels used in amplifier
processing. Sound engineers know that by controlling the
input, processing and amplifying sound is better.

MORE SOUND OPTIMIZER & FEEDBACK
SHEILD: MORE sound
optimizer and feedback shield are always "on" providing phase
inversion and frequency shift to better control unwanted whistling.

Oticon sent out upgraded software that handles the new Polaris
platform that we have installed. The new software is logically
arranged and connected by bluetooth. Oticon provided me with a
set of Oticon MORE demo's that I've been working with. Sound
quality is so good and natural that after just a few minutes,
clarity of speech seems effortless and feeling like you're not wearing
hearing aids at all. It's not until the hearing aids are
"turned off" or removed that one notices the striking difference of how much better
this new hearing aid is over past technology.
The Oticon MORE is a high-end product. Don't be surprised if
other providers in Colorado quote you $6000+. However, because of my
buying power with Oticon, a cost for a set of two Oticon MORE 1's
from my office is $4230. Why less? I
want more people to experience what it's like to really
