Life-changing hearing technologies recognized for excellence
SOMERSET, N.J., May 09, 2022–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Hearing aid manufacturer Oticon, Inc. is yet again receiving accolades for innovation in the design and development of hearing aid technology, adding to an already impressive resume of industry honors. Oticon MyMusic has been named a winner of the 2022 MedTech Breakthrough Awards, and Oticon Play PX and the Oticon SmartCharger have been awarded the internationally recognized Red Dot Product Design Award: 2022.
"Whether we’re applying an on-board Deep Neural Network (DNN) to pediatric care or amplifying the music-listening experience for the baby boomer generation, Oticon is continuously finding ways to provide life-changing results to people with hearing loss," said Gary Rosenblum, President of Oticon. "These latest award wins are a testament to the innovation and devotion of the entire Oticon team, as we design and deliver cutting-edge hearing technologies to the millions of people who need them."
A new feature of Oticon More™ hearing aids, Oticon MyMusic delivers crystal-clear sound quality for live and streamed music. Featuring a new amplification strategy and a specially designed music-oriented signal processing program, Oticon MyMusic captures the full dynamics of music, allowing individuals with hearing loss to enjoy all the nuances of their favorite compositions.
Oticon Play PX is the world’s first pediatric hearing aid with an on-board DNN designed to learn and recognize sounds the same way children do – through experience. It gives children with hearing loss a more natural listening experience, allowing them to access more of the important sounds in their environment and unleash the magic of childhood.
The Oticon SmartCharger is a state-of-the-art rechargeable solution that delivers freedom and flexibility for on-the-go hearing aid wearers. The sleek, portable charger delivers a full day of power, including streaming, in just three hours.* With a protective case and a built-in drying function to prevent moisture build-up, the Oticon SmartCharger keeps hearing aids in optimal condition and ready for use.
Including these wins, Oticon has earned four award recognitions in 2022. The company was named a CES 2022 Innovation Awards Honoree for Oticon MyMusic in January – its sixth consecutive recognition by the Consumer Technology Association.
