Oticon will join forces with the legendary rock band Styx to deliver a live stream of the band’s concert exclusively to the fans wearing Oticon OPN hearing aids. The concert is a part of the band’s North American summer tour and will reportedly be the first live event streamed directly to internet connected hearing aids. Oticon is aiming to use this concert to demonstrate the sound quality and the life-enhancing open sound experience of the OPN line.
OPN hearing aids can communicate directly with a full range of connected devices, so wearers can listen to TV, connect with doorbells, smoke detectors, and other smart devices; and even get the weather—all through their hearing aids. And now, hearing aid wearers can add “listen to the live broadcast of a rock concert” to the list.
“The Styx live broadcast is an exciting way to reach OPN wearers who are affected by hearing loss, and also helps to remind people of all ages about the importance of hearing health,” said Sheena Oliver, Vice President, Marketing at Oticon. “Through this event, we will demonstrate how Oticon OPN enables those with hearing loss to rock on and actively participate in all of life’s moments and memories.”
The live concert will be broadcasted on August 22nd from PNC Arts Center in Holmdel, NJ located near Oticon’s headquarters. Further details on how to access the live broadcast will be released later this month. Click here to learn more about the Oticon OPN hearing aids.
