    Default Oticon Speech Rescue

    From my reading, it looks like Oticon's frequency transposing feature (Speech Rescue) is only available in it's Power BTE? Volusiano, it looks like from your audiogram that frequency lowering might be of benefit. Have you ever had aids that had that feature (and that you used)? Sounds like different manufacturers have multiple approaches how they handle this.

    Hi MDB, my interpretation of the Oticon announcement is a little different. The way I read it, they'll add the Power Plus to the OPN line, but they will add the Speech Rescue LX and Tinnitus SoundSupport to ALL OPN styles and performance levels. Below is the snippet from the announcement in the other thread and highlighted in red is where it says pretty clearly that the firmware update 4 will give everybody Speech Rescue, even OPN3 users.

    I've never tried any frequency shifting technology before so I'm extremely excited to get a chance to try out the Speech Rescue LX when the firmware update 4 becomes available. I already had an inquiry into my audi and she promises to get more information for me when she goes to the training on 4/11.

    "Oticon further expands the Opn family with the introduction of two new Opn styles and the integration of Tinnitus SoundSupport™ and Speech Rescue™ LX into all Opn styles and performance levels. The new small, discreet miniRITE-T and the powerful BTE 13 PP give people with mild to severe-to-profound hearing loss access to Opn’s revolutionary open sound experience. Even more benefits are available to Opn users with the addition of two proven features, Tinnitus SoundSupport™ and Speech Rescue™ LX. The newly added features offer customizable relief sounds for tinnitus suffers and improved clarity and speech understanding for people with high frequency hearing loss."

    ..."A new firmware package 4 with the newest features, including Speech Rescue and Tinnitus SoundSupport, will be made available through the Oticon Firmware Updater in Genie 2. The newest firmware package enables hearing care professionals to continue to add improved and new features, as
    they become available, to Oticon Opn hearing aids regardless of style or performance level."

    Thanks! I hadn't read that but when looking up Oticon Speech Rescue found something that said that only their Power Aid had it, but this certainly supercedes it. Definitely let us know what you think of it. I keep thinking that I ought to enable Rexton's version of frequency shifting but having a difficult time motivating myself.
