ePen / Remote control


Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

Unlike traditional remote controls for hearing aids the ePen presents a very appealing and intuitive way to change settings like volume or switching between different preset programs. The ePen overcomes the peculiar and – especially for the elderly – often very cumbersome handling of tiny hearing devices. The remoteŽs design resembles somehow an elegant writing-pen, to match its practical appeal as decently serving device.

Ideal ergonomic addition to a product which is otherwise difficult to adjust with a timeless, universal design.
