People First

When we say "People First", it is much more than a fancy slogan: It is the way we think, the way we work,  and the way we develop our products.

We are founded on care

Founded in 1904 by Hans Demant, whose wife suffered from hearing loss, Oticon was built on care and empathy from the very beginning.

Powered by a relentless drive for innovation, Oticon has since been at the absolute forefront of technology that improves the lives of people with hearing loss.
