Oticon Safari Super Power

Specifically Designed to Empower Children with Severe-to-Profound Hearing Loss to Conquer Everyday Challenges.

Smørum, 12.10.2010 - Super power heroes capture young imaginations and give children the courage to take on new adventures and challenges with confidence. For children with severe-to-profound hearing loss, the newest super power hero comes in a sleek, modern design and sits comfortably on their ears. Meet Safari Super Power (SP), the newest member of Oticon’s Safari family of hearing solutions designed exclusively for children. In true super hero style, Safari SP comes equipped with high quality components to deliver 24/7 reliability for children with severe-to-profound hearing loss who rely on their hearing instruments through all their waking hours,

The new super power hearing instrument goes where no super power instrument for young people has gone before. Unlike conventional super power instruments that sacrifice speech resolution to obtain the necessary audibility, Safari SP is designed to provide not only audibility but also the higher signal fidelity and comfort that children with severe-to-profound hearing loss need to preserve the speech signal in its most natural and undistorted form. The benefit is an enhanced ability to function in complex listening environments with confidence and reduced fatigue at the end of the day

Children with extreme hearing loss need access to as many sounds as possible. The negative consequences of traditional compression on important speech cues can limit a child’s ability to function in dynamic sound environments such as the classroom, sports field or playground. 

The child-friendly Safari SP is engineered to not only amplify sound to achieve sufficient loudness but also to deliver the speech intelligibility children with severe-to-profound hearing loss require to interact more naturally and to participate more actively in life’s everyday adventures.  Speech Guard ensures clear and consistent auditory input to keep speech sounding natural while providing optimum intelligibility.

Safari SP opens an exciting world of connectivity to young people with severe-to-profound hearing loss. Effortless wireless connection to TVs, PCs, mobile phones and mp3 players is now possible through Oticon’s Connectline Streamer remote control and the ConnectLine system that stream audio directly to the child’s hearing instruments. Now, perhaps for the first time, children and teens with profound hearing loss can chat on mobile and landline phones with friends and grandparents, enjoy TV with the family and participate in online chatting and gaming. 

Safari SP and all Safari hearing instruments can use dedicated or universal Amigo receivers including the tamper-proof, light and slim Amigo R12 ear-level receiver. The new Amigo Arc neckloop receiver is an attractive option for children with bi-modal fittings. Similar to all of the child-friendly hearing solution in the Safari family, Safari SP features an LED status indicator that lets coaches, teachers and parents know that the instrument is on and the FM signal is being received and set to the correct program.

Equipped to meet the ups-and-downs of active children and teens, the sturdy Safari SP features a full-body nano-coating and internal deep coating designed to repel water, sweat and dirt. 

The child-friendly Safari SP is engineered to provide both the speech intelligibility and the audibility children with severe-to-profound hearing loss require to learn, to grow, to interact more naturally and to participate more actively in life’s everyday adventures.
