Sheena Oliver, AuD, vice president of marketing for Oticon, Inc, accepted a Gold Stevie Award for Oticon Opn at the 2018 American Business Awards’ Gala, held June 11 in New York City, the hearing aid manufacturer announced. Oticon’s newest BrainHearing solution was honored for what was reportedly the world’s first live concert broadcast exclusively for Opn wearers. The concert, featuring rock band Styx, was said to generate national and local media coverage that showed how Opn lets people with hearing loss “rock on.” The newest award represents the third time that Opn has been honored by the Stevie Awards, a business awards program. In 2017, Opn earned top honors in two award categories, Consumer Electronics and Health & Pharmaceuticals.
“We are proud that the expanded Oticon Opn family continues to gain national and international attention from leading healthcare and technology award programs,” said Oliver. “These honors are attention-getters with the power to drive interest not only in Opn, but in all hearing solutions, and that awareness motives consumers to take action that benefits all of us in hearing healthcare.”
A Perfect Ten
Three additional 2018 awards bring the number of awards to 10 that have celebrated the expanded Opn family. In May, the 2018 Compass Intelligence Award—an award that recognizes top companies in the mobile, IoT, and emerging technology industries–honored Oticon Opn as the Connected Health & Wellness Product of the Year. Also in May, the Oticon Opn testimonial video featuring Robert Primes earned a Bronze Telly Award.
Earlier this year, Oticon ConnectClip, the newest Oticon connectivity device, won a 2018 Red Dot Award for product design. The intermediary device is designed to provide hands-free connectivity to improve Opn users’ listening and communication experiences.
