Ponto sound processors undergo over 30 different reliability tests


Designed for durability

People with a hearing loss rely on their sound processor to take part in life. At Oticon Medical, we understand this responsibility and have designed every detail of the Ponto so that it won’t let you down.

  • A special nano-coating on Ponto offers resistance against water, moisture and dirt.


    Ponto sound processors have been awarded IP57 classification for resistance against dust and water.

    Please note that Ponto sound processors are not waterproof. Please remove your sound processor prior to showering or bathing.

  • Smart battery management

    Smart battery management

    This system is designed to optimise performance with all types of batteries—including new mercury-free zinc-air batteries. It also provides a warning well in advance of the battery needing replacement.

  • Nano-coating, smart battery management and wear-resistant coupling

    Wear-resistant coupling

    Ponto’s strong metal spring coupling easily connects to the outside of the abutment and is designed to withstand daily connection and disconnection without impairing sound quality.

Made to last

In our test lab, we subject the processors to the stresses and strains they meet in real-life situations. From heat and humidity tests to drop tests, the labs simulate a number of scenarios and tests to ensure that the Ponto meets the highest requirements.

Ponto battery reliability

Quality you can trust

The Ponto family of sound processors complies with international standards for quality, safety and reliability. In addition to meeting international standards, we’ve also implemented feedback from users all over the world to make improvements to Ponto features. For example, we know users want a long-lasting battery, which is why in Ponto it can last up to six days*.

*Battery lifetime varies based on battery size, sound environment and wireless streaming.
