Oticon Hearing Aids
The motivation for developing Oticon hearing aids was a search for creative answers to individual hearing difficulties, accomplished in 1904 when the company released Acousticon, the world’s first portable electronic hearing device.
The newly formed American-Danish Oticon Company, established after a partnership was formed with Charles Lehman, became one of the most well-known hearing aid manufacturers and suppliers after the Second World War.
Firsts for Oticon include an in-the-ear (ITE) hearing aid in 1977, and two decades later the first digital hearing aid in 1996, which helped Oticon keep pace with or outpace their competition.
The manufacturer distinguished itself again at the beginning of the 21st century by developing the Brain Hearing concept, upon which Oticon began building hearing aids with streaming and connectivity features in 2007.

Processing Technology by Oticon
The Brain Hearing concept, used by Oticon to design and build hearing aids to support the brain’s ability to create meaning from sound signals and speech, goes beyond simply amplifying the sound signals.
Built upon this concept, Opn processing technology makes it possible for hearing aid wearers to distinguish between a variety of speakers in an environment with background noise, while improving sound quality, enhancing voice clarity, and reinforcing overall instrument performance.

Local Hearing Loss Journeys
"The staff were very professional and friendly and put my mind at ease"
"I remember feeling confused at the prospect of having a hearing loss. I had so many preconceived ideas about visiting an audiologist but my experience with West Coast Hearing & Balance Center has been 10 out of 10.
"They were competent and knew what they were doing"
“My hearing loss was getting worse over time and I got to the point where I just wanted to hear better again. My impression of West Coast Hearing & Balance Center was that they were competent
“It’s not your fault if you have a hearing loss, and you deserve to hear without having to ask people to repeat everything to you.”
My family has a history of hearing difficulties, with my grandmother being born deaf and several of my aunts and uncles struggling with hearing as well.
“The results have been much better than I ever could have imagined.”
I was advised to get my hearing checked, but my first experience left me feeling like I was being sold a package of goods. That all changed when I met Dr. Nelson. He is a true professional who explained everything and answered all my concerns, which made me feel confident in his care.
“My worries were quickly alleviated when I visited West Coast Hearing & Balance Center.”
I was very concerned about how I would appear to other people if I were to need a hearing aid. Would they see me as old or disabled? And the thought of being dependent on something to hear was daunting.
