About This Project

Concept

Blamey Saunders Hears is a leading Australian company, offering hearing solutions and audiology services to hearing impaired consumers across the globe. They partnered with Extel to collaborate in the design, development and manufacturing of the world’s first modular self-fit hearing aid. It was critical that the device was modular and easy to use, giving consumers a new level of control over their listening experience. The objective was to shift the perception of hearing aids from disability to desirability by developing a first-of-its-kind behind-the-ear (BTE) hearing aid. The design element of this innovative product was fundamental to achieving this objective and was to disrupt the status quo in the market with appearance likened to a beautiful piece of jewellery.

Outcome

This stunning piece of technology changed the way the world views wearable medical devices. A slick design with highly intelligent behaviour, the innovation behind the hearing aid disrupted the med-tech industry and created a new experience for consumers with hearing impairments. The success was truly recognised through a number of industry awards, including:
