Oticon’s story begins in 1904 Denmark with Hans Demant’s passion to help his wife lead a better life, unhindered by her hearing loss. This passion to empower people in need of hearing support is what has driven the company through the last century and what continues to drive the hearing aid manufacturer into the next century. Oticon’s mission makes the People First promise: that everything they do always begins with the people they are doing it for. Oticon is not simply trying to help you hear more, but to live more.
Not only serving the surrounding community, the Oticon Hearing Foundation supports humanitarian missions that provide lasting benefits to underserved populations worldwide. Established in 2010, the Foundation seeks to unite hearing care professionals in a community of caring to increase access to sustainable hearing care for impoverished people and communities around the world. Though Oticon has a global reach, the US headquarters offers hearing assistance and services to its customers through cutting-edge technology. Holding many patents in advanced hearing technology, Oticon products are built with features available nowhere else: Speech Guard, which delivers more natural sounding speech; Spatial Sound, which preserves your ability to know where a sound is coming from; Connectivity, which links you to TV, computers and smartphones; and many other exclusive technologies.
