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.

  • DATE OF LAUNCH 2018

  • DEVELOPMENT TIME 13 - 24 months

  • TARGET REGIONS Australia / Oceania, Europe, North America

  • TARGET GROUPS Consumer / User

An important and empowering device gets a strong bold design. The appearance of this hearing aid communicates a strikingly positive and confident identity. The clarity of execution and the outstanding combination of materials for each element is overtly impressive. The flat proportions communicate a strong sense of precision and value.
