Oticon’s Acto Hearing Aids: Premium Technology in an Affordable Package

Updated November 2, 2016 – Oticon Acto hearing aids provide users with the technology of a premium Oticon hearing aid, in a much more affordable package. These hearing devices, available in a wide variety of styles, are designed to provide users with exceptional hearing, with maximum comfort. Oticon Acto and Oticon Acto Pro hearing aids are available in Receiver-In-The-Ear (RITE), miniRITE, Behind-The-Ear (BTE), miniBTE, Completely-In-The-Canal (CIC), Half-Shell (HS), and In-The-Canal (ITC) styles.  These devices automatically adapt to the user’s changing environment, so manual adjustments to the hearing devices do not have to be made. These devices are compatible with Oticon’s wireless technology, allowing users to wirelessly hear the audio from their television, phone, MP3 player, and other devices. The Acto line of Oticon hearing aids is available in two performance levels, the Acto, and the Acto Pro, which provides users with the opportunity to determine which features he or she desires in their hearing aid.

Features Of The Oticon Acto Pro Hearing Aid
  • Binaural Synchronization: This wireless technology automatically matches the hearing aids’ noise reduction and directionality features, allowing the devices to preserve their signal integrity in a variety of listening situations.
  • Binaural Coordination: This feature coordinates volume and program changes between the user’s two hearing devices. This allows users to make adjustments to both hearing aids just by adjusting one.
  • Binaural DFC2: This Digital Feedback Cancellation system automatically eliminates hearing aid feedback. With this annoying whistling gone, users can have comfortable conversations on the phone without having to worry about feedback becoming a problem.
  • DecisionMaker 2: This advanced feature continuously and automatically adjusts the user’s hearing aid’s settings to fit his or her current listening situation.  This eliminates the need for the user to make manual adjustments to his or her hearing aid.
  • Multi-Band Adaptive Directionality: This feature of the Acto hearing aids allows users to have much easier, more comfortable conversations in noisy environments, by allowing users to focus on the voice in front of them.
  • FM Compatibility: The Acto hearing aids are compatible with the Amigo accessory, and the ConnectLine series, both from Oticon. These allow users to experience enhanced listening in a variety of situations.
  • TriState Noise Management: This feature can help make noisy situations much more comfortable, by dampening the unwanted background noise. This can make meals in crowded restaurants, or riding in a car, much more enjoyable.

Acto and Acto Pro hearing aids are compatible with numerous accessories available from Oticon. These devices are designed to deliver enhanced hearing, easier listening, and more convenience to the Acto and Acto Pro wearers. These compatible accessories include:

Streamer
This is a small device that can be worn around the Acto wearer’s neck. It allows users to connect his or her hearing aids to cell phones, Oticon’s ConnectLine products, or other electronic devices. When used with a mobile phone or standard telephone, users can use the Streamer to allow his or her hearing aid ear pieces to act as wireless headsets. This allows users to make hands-free telephone calls. Also, with its ability to switch between multiple devices, users can listen to the audio of several electronic devices without having to reconnect it, as with some other company’s products. The Streamer also acts as a wireless remote control for the Acto hearing aids.

ConnectLine TV Adapter
This small device connects to the audio output of any television, and lets Acto users hear their television’s audio directly in their hearing devices, in stereo sound (both ears). It is easy to connect, so Acto wearers can begin using it very quickly. While it is in use, the hearing aid wearer can watch television at a volume comfortable for them, while their friends and family watch at a separate volume comfortable for them. With a 30 foot range, users can even hear their television’s audio even if they have to leave the room briefly.

ConnectLine Microphone
This small wireless microphone is worn discreetly by the person the Acto wearer is talking to, helping users experience more comfortable conversations, particularly in noisy environments. The microphone also features noise-cancelling technology that filters out unwanted background noise.

ConnectLine Phone Adapter
This device allows the user’s standard landline telephone to act as a Bluetooth mobile phone. The device sends the phone’s signal to the user’s Streamer, allowing them to answer calls, and have hands-free conversations from within 30 feet of the adapter.

Amigo
This device is a classroom FM transmitter and receiver system. A small FM transmitter and microphone are worn by the student’s teacher, parent, or coach, while an FM receiver is worn on the hearing aid of the Acto wearer. This receiver picks up the audio from the FM transmitter, and allows it to be heard clearly in the child’s ears. This can provide a much easier experience in the classroom for children with hearing loss.
