At CES 2023 this year, GN invited a select group of hearing industry journalists, influencers, and advocates to attend several exclusive panel discussions around innovative research projects they are currently working on while creating an open forum for attendees to share their ideas and perspectives. We had the opportunity to wear GN’s latest hearing aid technology, ReSound OMNIA, in the conference setting. They also provided a sneak peek of upcoming new ReSound and Beltone technology, so stay tuned for some exciting things to come from GN in 2023.
When the FDA announced the OTC hearing aid final approval in October of 2022, the Jabra line of hearing buds was one of the first to hit the market, sold and manufactured by the GN Group. This innovative line of hearing buds from GN Group won three CES 2023 innovation awards.
