No need to worry. Upgrading your app does not affect your fitting settings and programs, since they are stored in your hearing aid, not in the app.

Your hearing aids may need a firmware upgrade to work with the Oticon Companion app
Oticon Opn hearing aids with a firmware lower than 6.0 will need to be firmware upgraded to be able to connect to Oticon Companion app.

If you are unable to see certain features in your Oticon Companion app, that is because some functionality is only available for specific models and firmware versions:

  • Sound equalizer, HearingFitness, and Remember volume settings are only available with Oticon Real hearing aids.
  • To use Sound equalizer and Remember volume settings with Oticon Real hearing aids, you will need firmware 1.1.0 – please contact your hearing care professional to get the latest firmware update.

How to enable hands-free phone calls

Our most recent hearing aids can make and receive hands-free calls when paired directly with an iPhone or iPad. To have hands-free calls via other devices, or with older Oticon hearing aids, you need to use an Oticon ConnectClip accessory, which temporarily makes your hearing aids into a wireless stereo headset.

Once paired with your phone or ConnectClip, you simply use your device in the normal way to make or receive a call. The call will be automatically routed to your hearing aids. To answer incoming calls to your iPhone or iPad, you can also briefly press the button on your hearing aids.
