Oticon ConnectClip has earned a 2018 Red Dot Award for product design, the Denmark-based hearing aid manufacturer announced. A panel of international jurors recognized ConnectClip for what was said to be “outstanding design aesthetics” that incorporated a variety of technical, performance, and functionality innovations. The intermediary device is the newest addition to the Oticon connectivity devices designed to improve Oticon Opn™users’ listening and communication experiences.  ConnectClip will be among the award-winning designs exhibited at Red Dot Design Museums around the world.

Commenting on the award win, Gary Rosenblum, president, Oticon, Inc said, “Oticon is honored to receive another prestigious Red Dot Award, this year for our new ConnectClip. This internationally recognized symbol of excellence is a testament not only to ConnectClip’s convenient, lifestyle-enhancing features, but also to the work that goes into the design and continued evolution of our Oticon Opn hearing aid, a 2017 Red Dot Award winner.”

The multi-functional ConnectClip is designed to turn Oticon Opn hearing aids into a high-quality wireless headset for clear, hands-free calls from mobile phones, including iPhone® and Android™ smartphones. Sound from the mobile phones is streamed directly to the hearing aids and ConnectClip’s directional microphones pick up the wearer’s voice. ConnectClip serves double duty as a remote/partner microphone, helping to provide improved intelligibility of the speaker wearing it, either at a distance (up to 65 feet), in very noisy environments or in a combination of the two. Opn wearers can also use ConnectClip as a remote control for their hearing aids.

Wearable Technology Award Win

Oticon also celebrates a win at the UK’s Wearable Technology and Digital Health Show Awards. Oticon Opn received the  Innovation Award for wearable originality and advancement. The win reflects votes by a combined method of professional jury and public website vote.

Organizers at the Wearable Technology and Digital Health Show Awards commented on the win: ”The judges felt that the Oticon solution presented a revolutionary approach to hearing loss, and that its technology presented a real opportunity for users to interact with the growing number of smart devices in the home. A worthy winner.”

In light of the latest lockdown restrictions in the UK we are changing the way will be providing hearing aid and ear wax removal services until further notice. Given the current infection rates locally we are limiting all face-to-face contact to by-appointment only.

There is a social responsibility for us all to stay at home unless it is absolutely necessary, until at very least the end of January. Please do not attend the clinic without an appointment or without contacting us prior to attending, emergency appointments will only be provided once we have triaged your need by phone.

Where we deem it an emergency, we will assign you a specific appointment time, any bookings will need to be paid for prior to attendance. Subsequently any cancellations are subject to our 72-hour cancellation policy.

Appointment times have been further lengthened in order to allow us time to complete our additional safety procedures. We have introduced the use of fogging equipment between appointments in order to disinfect all surfaces and air completely, to ensure the maximum safety for our patients and staff. Emergency wax removal appointments are therefore subject to a temporary price increase to take into account the additional safety measures required due to the aerosol generating nature of microsuction equipment.
