Communication and navigation in complex environments can be extremely difficult and exhausting – especially for hearing aid users.
OpenSound Navigator is an evidence-based speech-enhancement feature that preserves speech and reduces noise in complex listening environments. The technology is documented to improve speech understanding and reduce listening effort across listening conditions. It is enabled by many technological achievements and protected by international patents.
This session introduces new developments of OpenSound Navigator. User benefits, user involvement, and clinical application are covered.
