    The listening programs allow you to maintain the overall sound characteristics of the general program while modifying it to provide more benefit in a given situation.

    The Program Manager in Genie 2 features a variety of listening programs including Speech in Noise, Music, Comfort, Lecture, T-Coil and more.


    With the DSL fitting rationale now available for Oticon Opn, you can offer your teen clients the full benefit of the open sound experience with assurance that best practice guidelines are supported. Combining DSL with Oticon’s new open sound experience enables confident listening in the complex listening environments that are common in a teen’s life.

    Speech RescueTM

    Speech Rescue LX improves speech understanding for users with more severe, asymmetric, progressive and unilateral hearing loss by preserving speech cues that might otherwise be lost.

    Speech Rescue LX benefits clients when conventional forms of amplification have not produced audibility in the high frequencies.

    Conveniently located in the Fitting section below the Feedback Analyser, Speech Rescue LX in the default setting is OFF for both adult and children.

    When you choose to enable Speech Rescue LX for a client, Genie 2 automatically applies the default setting.


    Tinnitus SoundSupport™

    Tinnitus SoundSupport is now available in Oticon Opn hearing aids.

    Tinnitus SoundSupport is activated in Genie 2 and provides you with a range of four broadband sounds and three ocean-like sounds that can be individually adjusted and fine-tuned to suit each client’s individual needs and preferences.

    You can also adjust the relief sounds through Automatic Level Steering, hearing aid microphone on/off in tinnitus programs, frequency shaping, four modulation settings, and easy level adjustment.

    Genie 2 allows you to demonstrate all seven relief sounds in Sound-Studio to help clients and their significant others better understand aspects of tinnitus treatment using sound therapy.


    Oticon Firmware Updater

    Oticon Firmware Updater is a brand new tool in Genie 2 that enables firmware updates of hearing aids within the Opn family. This means that new features and security updates are released to the existing styles through the Oticon Firmware Updater.
