I both dispense Oticon and GN, the delta and the Dot are totally different products. Assuming we compare the top delta with the top Dot this are the differences…
The dot was just released not long ago -january. It is based on Gn’s concept of natural directionality. It is basically a new concept based on research in that one instrument is fixed -Omi directional (monitor Ear) and the other instrument is set at full directional ear (Focus Ear). As a result of such
setting clients are more aware of sounds that are coming from behind…
Oticon delta is based on Artificial intelligence, meaning the instrument decide if what setting it should used based on what provides the best signal to noise ratio (thus, maximize speech understanding)… Oticon also has a propietary formula call voice align compression or clarity. GN uses standart NAL, Modified DSL or the Audiogram +.
If you get the basic delta and the basic dot, in Oticon there is an adaptation manager which is set manually where by the instrument is set at a low gain
and as weeks goes the audi changes the setting so that maximum speech understanding is acheive.
IF you get both instrument, the top of the line this is done automatically.
it is fair to say that if you get a dot it would be have more features
since it is a newer instruments… Both are great… I would follow your audi
recomendation… I like both fitting software
