Ponto 3: The Definition of Power

In bone anchored hearing, when it comes to audibility and understanding, power is everything. That’s why we are proud to present Ponto 3, the world’s most powerful abutment-level sound processor family. Ponto 3 gives you premium sound quality – even if you have a larger hearing loss.

BrainHearing™ – because your brain is the most important part of hearing

If you have a hearing loss, you know how difficult it can be to focus in noisy situations. When there are conversations and background noise, your brain has to work harder to make sense of the sounds it hears, which can leave you feeling drained.

BrainHearing™ is about a fundamental understanding of how hearing works – and how the brain makes sense of sound. At Oticon Medical, we always choose to focus on reducing the extra listening effort the brain expends to compensate for a hearing loss. This frees up mental energy for more important things in life.

Ponto 3 supports the brain’s cognitive processes using the advanced sound processing technology of the powerful Inium Sense platform and Direct Sound Transmission. This type of sound transmission sends sound straight to the bone and on to the inner ear and the brain – without having to travel through the skin, which dampens sound. As a result, Ponto 3 reduces the effort spent on listening1 and helps the brain to:


  Orient itself and understand what’s happening around you
 Separate relevant sounds from competing noise
  Focus in noisy environments
  Recognize sounds and make sense of them


Powerful sound quality

Ponto 3 is the most powerful family of abutment-level sound processors on the market. This power gives you a greater volume range, so loud sounds remain loud but not distorted, and softer sounds are audible.

  • UltraDrive

    The unique UltraDrive™ technology in Ponto 3 SuperPower, together with the new Inium Sense platform, enables this power while minimizing the risk of feedback.

  • Widest frequency

    Ponto 3 also has the industry’s widest frequency range. Hearing a wider frequency range has been shown to increase the speed of language learning2.

Power to focus and understand

Power to focus and understand

Ponto 3 uses the FreeFocus directional system, designed to help the brain focus while continuing to orient and separate sounds. It automatically switches between different modes to keep sound clear, even when you move from one listening environment to another. With its unique new FreeFocus directionality, Ponto 3 provides 15% better speech understanding in the majority of situations, typically more than 70% of time3.

At the same time, the Inium Sense feedback shield lets you avoid potential feedback that may interrupt speech understanding and communication. This advanced Feedback Management system runs continuously in order to detect and eliminate feedback quickly and efficiently, without affecting the sounds you want to hear.
