While they might differ in color and shape, many hearing aids share a similar look. Signia created Styletto as a change of pace, one that allows those with hearing loss to find a more fitting alternative. For those who feel uncomfortable with traditional models, they might find something completely different in Styletto. By combining fashion and functionality, this revolutionary SLIM-RIC form factor redefines stylish hearing aid design.
Breaking Out of the Mould
While the idea of hearwear is not new, hearing aid manufacturers have struggled to capture the art of combining style and functionality. The existing blueprint for behind-the-ear hearing aids already exists, and it works just fine. For many manufacturers, there’s no need to fix what isn’t broken. However, there’s a large portion of hearing aid wearers who disagree.
They want a hearing aid that is not only comfortable but aesthetically pleasing and unique. Each person who is hard of hearing is an individual, so assigning a uniform shape to everyone limits their freedom. For this reason, many people with hearing loss choose not to use hearing aids at all. If being fitted means they will have to forfeit their sense of style, it’s simply not worth it.
Styletto is designed to solve this problem. It’s a fresh take on the concept of hearwear; one that introduces a new form factor with uniquely beautiful lines. It comes in a number of colours, including jewellery tones like rose gold and silver. It’s virtually unnoticeable at first glance and simply appears like a sleek piece of jewellery or tech to an unknowing onlooker.
Empowering People, Inspiring Lifestyles
Styletto hearing aids are more than just accessories, however. Complete with lithium-ion batteries, Styletto is designed to provide stylish high-tech hearing on the go. The devices can be put in a portable case for recharging and can last a full day in between charges. If the wearer’s lifestyle requires frequent traveling, the ability to move freely is a necessity. Styletto’s portable rechargeability is a unique feature, offering an incredible 4 days of wearing free from plugs and cables: The hearing aids contain one day’s charge and the fully charged case provides another 3 days of rechargeability.
This convenient handling means that hearing aids don’t hold people back. Styletto wearers can take a long weekend trip to another country or enjoy a roadtrip with friends and family. The convenient handling enables them to focus on what’s important. Because hearing aids should help your career and social life, not hinder them.
Revisiting A Familiar Concept
When you look at Styletto’s behind-the-ear design, it’s similar to how you wear another helpful accessory.
Over the years, glasses have gone from a necessity to an accessory. There are hundreds of styles available, with wearers choosing from a variety of colours and shapes. They offer a new way for people to express themselves, and people take pride in how they look while wearing them. The shape is comfortable, and people slowly forget they’re wearing them entirely. They take them off before bed and slip them on in the morning like normal.
Glasses have become a part of people’s lives, and hearwear is the same concept. With Styletto, Signia has created a piece of high tech that does more than enable hearing. Styletto empowers its wearer while offering the same freedom of expression that glasses do: Simply pick a colour design that fits your personality and start choosing your own adventure.
