Our vision

A world where hearing loss is no limitation.


Our mission

We challenge conventions and push the limits of technology to change the lives of people with hearing loss.

Our story

Oticon’s mission began over 100 years ago. In 1904, Hans Demant wanted to help his wife Camilla live a better life, unhindered by her hearing loss. Hans helped Camilla with one of the first electronic hearing aids in the world.

From this foundation of care, Oticon grew with a passion to help people who need hearing support. We work constantly towards our vision of a world where hearing loss is no limitation. We innovate life-changing technology – and if that means we need to challenge conventions, then that is what we do.

Open and curious

Oticon never stops exploring and learning about hearing loss. We work continuously with over 13,000 hearing aid users and hearing care professionals, who help us understand what people need and desire.

What is more, we conduct leading scientific research at our research centre, Eriksholm. Here, our discoveries show us how we can do things differently and develop the hearing technology of the future.

Discover how your hearing works

Our unique BrainHearing™ philosophy

We think differently about hearing loss: We start with the brain. This is because you actually hear with your brain – not with your ears.

By understanding how the brain makes sense of sound, we can help people more effectively with hearing aids. Moreover, we can understand how to protect the brain from hearing loss-related risks such as cognitive decline.

A technology pioneer

At Oticon, we are always pushing the limits of technology so we can improve the lives of people with hearing loss.

Our innovations come from setting the bar higher. While others settle for directional hearing, we have pioneered 360° open sound.

In fact, we always aim to achieve the impossible – and we challenge conventions to get there. We believe this is what makes us technology leaders of our industry.
