I have had my Oticon OPNs for almost 3 years now. It has made talking in social groups MUCH less stressful - I no longer have to watch people's lips and concentrate to understand what is being said, and I find they handle background noise VERY well, contrary to what several others have reported.Read full review
I am a professional Spanish interpreter; hearing is crucial. My audiologist recommended [Oticon]. I have had them for nearly two years with no problems. The difference in hearing is amazing. The first several days I walked around with my mouth open at the things I could hear.Read full review

How to get an Oticon hearing aid
Oticon hearing aids can be purchased from hearing care centers that are authorized Oticon dealers.

Some hearing aid care centers also sell batteries and help troubleshoot and care for your hearing aid.
Oticon hearing aid FAQ
- How long do Oticon hearing aids last?
- The lifetime of any hearing aid depends on the way it is worn and used. In general, in-the-ear hearing aids don't last as long as behind-the-ear hearing aids because they are exposed to more moisture, sweat and earwax. Expect in-the-ear hearing aids to last about four or five years. Behind-the-ear hearing aids last longer — about five to six years.
- Does Costco carry Oticon hearing aids?
- No. Costco carries several different brands of hearing aids, but it does not carry Oticon hearing aids.
- What is the application process for Oticon hearing aids?
- The application process to get an Oticon hearing aid varies by hearing care center. Typically, you need to make an appointment with the hearing center, discuss your needs and get a hearing test. You may also get a hearing aid fitting. Your local audiologist gives you everything you need to get an Oticon hearing aid.
- Can Oticon hearing aids be repaired?
- Yes, Oticon hearing aids can often be repaired. Ask the hearing care professional who sells you the hearing aid about needed repairs. There is also a troubleshooting guide under the "Support" section of Oticon’s website.

Had problems getting Oticon's phone and TV adapters to work. Customer Service is poor, not customer friendly, guarded, deceitful, inflexible, and gives inconsistent answers. Customer Service number is not listed in any of their equipment guides (tells you all you need to know), so I had to google to find their number. Option should provide troubleshooting guide in their instructions manual. Equipment may be good, but if you can’t get it to work after two calls and two hours time invested.... Oticon relies upon Customer Service as first line of defense to correct tech problems, reps skills set, expertise, and company longevity varies: None are great. Obvious by their fumbling, research timeouts, and questioning. Had no degree of confidence that they could resolve my problems.
Only able to speak to a true tech specialist one time in spite of numerous requests. My one experience was good. Management needs to radically change their corporate mindset about customer service and tech support. Start with clean sheet of paper. Oticon can improve, if they want. I get better customer service from my cable company.
I got these Oticon Nera2 Pro in Feb. 2017 from Avada now Hearing Life. The hearing quality is good, but the hearing aid's volume controls malfunction and the hearing aids have been replaced repeatedly. They have improved the volume controls, but they only send me the bad design ones. Now, the warranty just expired and I have to wait two years to get new haring aids with insurance. How can they send me hearing aids with a design problem beats me. I have worn other brands of hearing aids for years and never had this kind of problem.

This is my second set of Oticon OPN hearing aids. The first set worked beautifully, so purchased another set when I needed new ones. These have been sent back 2 times, and no one can figure out why they turn off when they feel like it, and then turn back on within 5 seconds or so. Told to turn off my Bluetooth! They are supposed to work with Bluetooth. That’s one of the reasons I bought them. $6,000. They do not fit my ears well either, so they put this plastic piece on to hold them in my ears. Next larger domes came off inside my ears. Most uncomfortable. Very frustrated. Not sure what I will do from here.
I got these from an Aunt that passed away so I was not the original purchaser. To get them fitted and adjusted, not many audiologists around here that work with this brand, I had to travel 45 minutes to get there and it cost $3000. I put them in the cleaner every night and have rechargeable batteries. The wire keeps disconnecting and the cleaner makes the cups clog (aren't they supposed to clean them?). I have had to travel back at least 5 times in that first year and each time it cost an office visit (another $60). Should have gotten cheaper ones and kept all that other cash.
Due to family complaints about my hearing, I purchased these hearing aids to satisfy them. The aids have held up well, and that's the only thing good about them. All they do is make everything louder and with poor quality sound. I hate them. At home, I use, instead, Sony wireless headphones on my TVs, synthesizer, and my PlayStation 4. These headphones only cost about $ 70, and the fidelity is GREAT. I should have returned these hearing aids when I could have. My suggestion to you is DO NOT compromise what you want from your hearing aids!!!! I rarely wear them. I hate them!

I had to procure hearing aids for my father. I floated inquiry in India mart. I got a call from many suppliers, of which one was very competitive. But Mr. Hitesh **, DGM sales, Oticon got in touch with me through another dealer and said that the other one who is offering least price is unauthorized and I should procure it from the supplier recommended by him. I ended up buying it at a higher price. Now, when I got to know that Mr. Hitesh was telling lies and the other supplier is authentic and I asked Oticon to help me get the device returned to the supplier, they are hiding and not attending calls. They are clearly at fault. If anyone of you want to save your hard earned money, please call me on **, I will help you get in touch with the genuine supplier. I do have every details and proofs of what I have quoted here.
It is very expensive. I paid over 7500 CAD for these in January 2019, almost 8k CAD with ZPower rechargeable kit. Since then I had:
2 - Lots of Bluetooth connection problems. For whichever reason the phones might randomly not connect to Bluetooth, so it will not stream or will not be able to be managed via phone APP. Shitty both in Android and iPhone.
3 - One of the hearing aids stopped working randomly in December, so not even a full year of usage. It cannot finish the booting cycle (the song) and then it keeps going on and off, which creates an irritating white noise. I am as of now using one year only and the world feels weird.
4 - Not loud enough when streaming phone calls on them. Cannot pick up those calls on loud places.
All in all, for my first experience with hearing aids I am beyond unimpressed. Expensive, bad quality (who wants to be reminded all the time of their deafness with those bugs?) and inconvenient (who wants to be troubled by multiple last-minute visits to the audiologist?).
Three times in 2 years I had to traipse to the audiologist to send them back for replacement. Traipse again to pick up. Repeat and then Repeat. The fourth time I was told it was the humidity. A dryer kit was recommended. Not the issue and another waste of money. Different brands of batteries did not make a difference. Why a fresh battery lasts for 2 hours? It will give me great pleasure to smash them both with a hammer and send them back. Would not recommend this brand to anyone.
I have had them for two years and initially they were great. Comfortable. Hearing was quite clear although they would not increase volume. My old clunkers went through a battery a week. The new Oticon uses 2 each week. They have a little white filter that must be replaced when plugged. Initially this was every few weeks but over time they could stop working after a day. I keep my ears very clean. Washing and with Q tips. As a snowbird I spend 6 months in Mexico. After a month I had to give up on the new Oticons and go back to the 7 year old ones. Old but reliable. My hearing clinic wouldn't supply the filters or batteries based on actual usage so I must wait till I go back to Canada to get parts. Not happy.
I went to a wonderful audiologist in DC in 2014 and she prescribed two Oticon Opn miniRITE Z power hearing aids. Within a month I started having trouble with one and sometimes the other or both not charging properly or not holding a charge. At great inconvenience to me I had to go back to the doctor's office multiple times to drop off and then pick up replacement batteries, replacement charging dock, and even the hearing aids themselves. When they work they do a good job (nothing to compare them to) but they have never held a charge longer than 8 hours at best and that is not long enough! I know that they now make a different product with a different battery that supposedly stays charged longer because they recognize and acknowledge the flaws in their older model.
Mine are still under warranty (which, by the way, was extended by them from 3-4 years because of the trouble users were having with this defective design). They refuse to exchange them for new ones despite my many exchanges and patience with these frustrating aids. Instead, they sent me a new charger, new battery doors, and new rechargeable batteries. Believe me--when it is time to buy my next pair I will not even consider Oticon! Their customer service is NO GOOD. THEY DON'T CARE about the customer and will not do the right and reasonable thing of standing behind their product and their warranty. NEVER AGAIN!!!
