Impact beyond better hearing

Ground-breaking research shows how the choice of system and sound processor will impact the user's everyday life. With the Ponto™ System more cognitive resources can be used for understanding, remembering and enjoying life.

At Oticon Medical, we call this BrainHearing™.  48x48-brainhearing


Learn faster1

Results show that children learn new words 2.5 x faster using a system with Direct Sound Transmission compared to a solution with Skin Transmission, such as a sound processor worn on a magnet or head band1.

If we can give children a clearer, more comprehensive, signal they can learn much faster

Remember more2

Direct Sound Transmission provides quality sound to support the brain’s cognitive processes. Results show that users with a Direct Sound Transmission system are 13% better at remembering words compared to users of a Skin Transmission solution2.

If you have a high-quality sound presented to the brain you remember more. So actually, you remember more with Direct Sound Transmission

Less effort3

A bone anchored hearing device with a higher maximum output can transmit a larger range of less distorted sound to the brain. Results show that a significant decrease in listening effort can be achieved with the Ponto 3 SuperPower, as indicated by reduced pupil dilation3.

Federica Bianchi, PhD Clinical Scientist

By using the Ponto 3 SuperPower, we can reproduce a larger variety of input sound levels more naturally and the brain require significantly less effort to process the sounds

Ponto 3 means powerful sound quality

Available in Ponto 3, Ponto 3 Power and Ponto 3 SuperPower versions, the Ponto 3 family enables more people - including those with a greater hearing loss - to enjoy the renowned Ponto sound.
