We are delighted to announce that Oticon Intiga (Hidden Hearing D Series) has just won the prestigious iF product design award 2012 in the category medicine/healthcare.
The D Series innovative design impressed the iF award jury consisting of experts and renowned designers from around the world. The international competition drew 4000 entries from over 48 countries.
This award is testament to the D Series ultra-small size, sleek ergonomic design, powerful RISE 2 sound processing and a fast adaptation strategy proven to work in perfect harmony with natural sound. Not only does it boast a beautiful design and premium performance, but it is also extremely comfortable for your customers to wear.
The common misconception is that it takes first time users from 6-8 weeks to get used to amplification. However, independent research at Towson University in Maryland, USA and Horzentrum in Oldenburg, Germany proves that Intiga achieves sound processing which is easy to adapt to.
According to the study, the majority of participants could see themselves as long-term users from the very first week. They also reported noticeable improvements in speech understanding with a low level of perceived side effects within the first couple of days.
For experienced users who demand discreetness and refuse to compromise on performance, the D Series is the ultimate upgrade from their existing hearing solution.
