New Styletto Connect Hearing Aids from Signia Win Red Dot Design Award
The new rechargeable Styletto Connect hearing aids from Signia not only provide the most natural hearing experience for people with mild to moderate hearing loss. They also offer the highest quality design which has been honoured with a Red Dot Award for Product Design – one of the most sought-after seals of quality for good design. This accolade follows hot on the heels of the revolutionary design also winning a Gold Award in the iF Design Awards 2019.
The design of new hearing aids is important because they have developed into much more than traditional medical devices. Today’s hearing aids are technological accessories that are worn every day by people with hearing loss to remain fully connected with the world around them. These high-tech devices can be connected to your smartphone or other Bluetooth devices to stream phone calls, music, even the sound of your TV. Some are rechargeable like other personal electrical products such as your phone, laptop or toothbrush.
Styletto Connect combines all these advantages with an award-winning slim-line design, built around a revolutionary pin-shaped battery. Gone are the days when hearing aids had to have the same recognisable rounded shape to accommodate the typical coin-shaped battery. The unique design of Styletto Connect turns these rechargeable hearing aids into stylish hearwear.
“We are thrilled to have been presented with such a prestigious honour for our latest iconic innovation, Styletto, now for the second time in a row, as we just received the iF Design Award,” said Chief Marketing Officer Maarten Barmentlo. “This international recognition for top design in hearing aids is important to us, as we strongly believe that combining the most advanced hearing aid technology with the most desirable design helps to fight the stigma surrounding hearing aids that still exists today.”
Step Out in Style
Personal style is a big factor when we choose our accessories. We dress and accessorise according to our personal preferences. We also expect some medical products, such as a pair of glasses, to be in line with our style preferences. So why should choosing a hearing aid be any different?
The graceful lines, refined fit and top-quality materials of Styletto Connect mean you feel the difference as soon as you wear it. You can express your individual style by choosing one of three elegant colour combinations: Black and Silver, Cosmic Blue and Rose Gold, or Snow White and Rose Gold.
Charging-on-the-go for complete flexibility
There’s also a lot to love on the inside as Styletto Connect hearing aids provide technology that supports your active lifestyle. Not only does an overnight charge give you the power to hear well throughout the day. They also come with a pocket-sized charging case that gives you up to three more days without having to go anywhere near a wall socket or cable for complete wireless independence.
This charging-on-the-go makes Styletto Connect your reliable companions on the road, whether you’re taking a long weekend break or on an important business trip. Three times smaller and half the weight of comparable chargers, the sleek charging case fits in your pocket so you can take it with you everywhere.
Top Bluetooth connectivity for staying in touch with ease
Styletto Connect hearing aids double up as high-tech earbuds for your hearing pleasure. If you’re powering up for your day with a morning run, you can stream your favourite music directly from your phone into your ears thanks to Styletto Connect’s reliable Bluetooth technology. You can also turn your Styletto Connect into a wireless headset for hands-free phone calls with the clever little StreamLine Mic accessory. And with the small StreamLine TV box connected to your television, you can enjoy Dolby Digital sound streamed from your TV straight into your ears for maximum enjoyment of your favourite programs and movies.
Even if you find your hearing aids running low on power late in the evening, a quick 30-minute charge gives you an additional five hours of use. So you can turn the day into night and still hear everything with Styletto Connect.
Experience the most natural hearing
Based on the latest Signia technology, Styletto Connect lets you enjoy clear speech comprehension in noisy environments like a street café or a dinner party. And Own Voice Processing (OVP) provides you with a natural-sounding own voice because it’s just as important to hear your own voice as it should sound in conversation with friends and colleagues. So you hear every voice with true fidelity in outstanding sound quality, including your own voice.
The award-winning Styletto Connect hearing aids combine all these advantages with a powerful aesthetic vision to create a beautiful product that everyone can enjoy. To try out Styletto Connect for yourself, find your nearest hearing care professional with our handy store locator.
