Traditionally, hearing aid design has considered only medical factors. As a result, the product has carried the negative connotation of being only for the elderly and disabled. A new design was needed to transform the image of hearing aids. Drawing inspiration from consumer electronics, Sivantos have created an entirely novel slimline design. With visual appeal and a compact portable charging case, Styletto’s design is designed to fit the user’s lifestyle. Styletto is a fully functional hearing aid with a revolutionary form factor, complementary design elements and a slim rechargeable battery which gives it the appearance of a consumer product rather than a medical device.
