Oticon was founded on a compassion for people — and a deep understanding of the role that hearing plays in living a richer and fuller life. More than a century later, compassion continues to guide innovation and drive business through their unique corporate structure.
Instead of a typical corporate board of directors, Oticon is controlled by the Oticon Foundation, a charitable organization with a mandate both to grow their business and to help people with hearing loss. Their built-in commitment to compassionate innovation directs their industry-leading research in hearing technology, psychoacoustics and human behavior. It’s what makes an Oticon hearing instrument unique in its ability to help you live the life you want to live.
Cochlear helps people hear. Cochlear invented the world’s first multi-channel cochlear implant over 30 years ago, which has evolved into their Cochlear™ Nucleus® System today. Later Cochlear added a bone conduction implant, the Cochlear Baha® System, to our treatment options, so we could help care for more people with hearing loss. Now, with the addition of the Cochlear™ Nucleus® Hybrid Implant System we can help individuals who miss high-frequency sounds. In the past many individuals with this type of hearing loss may not have had an effective treatment option available to them. Cochlear is able to provide more breakthroughs than any other company because of their investment and dedication to research and development. Cochlear has seen nine generations of innovations with more to come.
