Hearing aid manufacturer, Oticon, is delighted to announce that its Oticon More™ hearing aids have received the highly acclaimed and internationally recognised Red Dot Award: Product Design 2021. This latest achievement adds to Oticon’s previous Red Dot wins, demonstrating once again, that Oticon’s dedication to forward-thinking research and innovating technology is producing exceptional, industry-leading hearing devices.

Oticon More™ faced fierce competition in the most entered round of the awards to date, however, the Red Dot jury of independent designers, design professors and specialist journalists agreed that the excellent quality of Oticon’s latest premium hearing aids made them stand out. Red Dot were impressed by the technology on-board Oticon More™ which was specifically designed to support hearing loss in a profoundly new way.

Oticon More™ is the world’s first hearing aid to allow users to hear more relevant sounds, which makes listening more natural. It features a unique on-board Deep Neural Network (DNN), pre-trained by Oticon with 12 million sound scenes from real life, in order to optimize the way Oticon More™ makes sound more distinct. The DNN works seamlessly across varying listening environments which means that when you wear Oticon More™ hearing aids you get more precision and clarity while still feeling that the sound is comfortable.

Commenting on the award win, Janne Jakobson, Vice President, Oticon Brand, Global said: “Winning a Red Dot for high design quality in 2021 is an achievement we are extremely proud of, especially knowing that number of entries exceeded any previous year in the awards’ 60 year history. The journey to conceive Oticon More has required an unwavering dedication by our engineers and researchers, so it is really rewarding for them to see that all of their hard work is recognized. They are the backbone that supports our relentless focus on research and development. We tore up the industry rule book with Oticon More. Drawing on years of research of how the brain hears sound and how hearing technology can best support the brain, we invented a ground-breaking, radically new approach to sound processing which is helping users to hear more naturally. We are delighted to have the fruition of our research recognised, especially with such a respected global award.”
