A revolutionary 360° sound experience for single-sided deafness

Imagine sitting in an important meeting and not being able to pinpoint who is talking. Or having to choose between hearing the TV at a party for a sporting event versus talking with other guests. If you have single-sided deafness, a condition where there is significant or total hearing loss in one ear, you face challenges like these every day. Introducing Oticon CROS™, a solution designed specifically to help you overcome challenges like these.

The Oticon CROS solution consists of two parts:

NFMI sound transmission from transmitter

A transmitter with a microphone that wirelessly picks up and sends the sound from your poorer ear to the better ear.

NFMI sound transmission to hearing aid

A hearing aid that picks up the sound from the transmitter and plays it in your better ear.

Oticon CROS is available in a range of colors and styles to match your hair or skin tone.

“Watching Sunday football is a tradition for my family. I enjoy spending time with my kids and grandkids and I like that Oticon CROS gives me the ability to have a conversation while still being able to listen to the game in the background. The sound quality is a real touchdown.” – Peter M.

Streamed sounds are a natural part of our lives, with or without hearing loss. But it can be very challenging to directly stream sound and carry on a conversation if you have hearing loss in one ear. Oticon CROS™ is the world’s first CROS™ solution that makes it possible to do both.

TwinLink™ technology makes it possible to connect to external audio streams while simultaneously having access to sound on your poorer ear side. With Oticon CROS you will be able to watch television or listen to music while at the same time carrying on a conversation with someone positioned on your poorer side.
