The Oticon Opn product range has won a total of seven awards during 2017 with four prizes coming in the last three weeks. Two Stevie Awards, a Red Dot award and an Edison are the latest additions to the trophy cabinet.
The two Gold Stevie Awards for the Opn product were announced at the 15th Annual American Business Awards, with a presentation due to take place in New York on 20th June. The hearing instrument, launched by Oticon in 2016, earned the top honours in the Consumer Electronics and Health & Pharmaceutical categories. The American Business Awards are the country’s premier business awards program and Oticon was pitted against thousands of organizations from every industry possible.
Oticon President Gary Rosenblum accepted a Gold Award for Opn’s “innovation and excellence in product development” at the 2017 Edison Awards Gala in New York City in April. The award recognized Opn’s human-centred design and innovation in the Health & Wellness category. The Edison Awards Gala is more than just a prize-giving, as they encompass a full-day “Meet the Innovators Forum” and “Innovators Showcase” that offered guests a hands-on experience with Opn and many of the winning products.
Last but not least, Opn has received a 2017 Red Dot award. The award recognizes Opn’s ‘outstanding design aesthetics’ that incorporate a variety of technical, performance and functionality innovations including the world’s first Internet connected hearing aid. Following its selection, Opn will be among the award-winning designs exhibited at Red Dot Design Museums around the world.
“We are honoured that Oticon Opn has been selected from a competitive arena that includes hundreds of cutting-edge products from leading US and international companies,” said Rosenblum. “Opn is making a real difference to the lives of people, young and old, who suffer from hearing loss. With our newly expanded Opn family, we continue to build on paradigm-shifting innovation at the core of Opn to bring the open sound experience to even more people with hearing loss.”
