Introducing Oticon CROS

 

The world’s first CROS solution with the open sound experience

Introducing the first CROS/BiCROS solution with OpenSound Navigator™ and TwinLink dual-streaming technology. Oticon CROS is the world’s first CROS/BiCROS hearing aid proven to support speech awareness in challenging listening environments and wireless streaming at the same time. Powered by the revolutionary Velox S™ platform, Oticon CROS is compatible with Oticon’s premium product families.

Help your patients open up their world

 
OpenSound Navigator™ is key to delivering a 360⁰ listening experience to your patients. This technology constantly analyzes the environment, balances sound levels and removes unwanted noise. Oticon CROS features an optimized version of OpenSound Navigator that delivers a fuller, more immersive sound experience when listening to speech in noisy environments and at a distance for your patients with single-sided deafness.
 

TwinLink™ dual-streaming. An industry first.

Oticon CROS is the world’s first CROS/BiCROS solution offering TwinLink technology. TwinLink makes it possible to connect to external audio sources via 2.4 GHz Bluetooth® low energy, while simultaneously receiving sound transmission via Near-Field Magnetic Induction (NFMI) from the poorer to the better ear. This enables patients to watch television or listen to music while carrying on a conversation with someone positioned on their poorer ear side.

Oticon CROS delivers a 50% improvement in speech awareness

Results of a recent Oticon CROS dual streaming study showed a 50% average improvement in speech awareness in the environment while streaming from an external source and also transmitting sound from the poorer ear to the better ear.* Participants in the study listened to news stories through ConnectClip with the Oticon CROS transmitter turned on and off. When the transmitter was on, participants were 50% more aware of the spoken words in the environment.
