Danish hearing aid manufacturer Oticon has won the 2007 Danish Product Award for its groundbreaking binaural Epoq hearing aid. The award is given each year by the Danish professional journal Ingeniøren (The Engineer).
 
Epoq represents a major advance because unlike two conventional hearing aids which work independently in each ear, the paired Epoq hearing aids communicate wirelessly with each other via a radio link, giving the user a significantly improved ability to sense the direction sounds come from and distinguish voices in noisy background environments in much the same way as people without hearing loss. Epoq can also be coupled to a so-called streamer device which enables the hearing aids to function as a wireless headset for mobile phones and MP3 players.
 
Accepting the award, Oticon's development director Jes Olsen commented: "I am proud that it is The Engineer which has given us an award, because it represents recognition from our professional peers, and that is the hardest to get."
 
Oticon is part of William Demant Holding Group which develops, manufactures and sells products and equipment designed to aid the hearing and communication of individuals. The Group focuses on three business areas: Hearing Aids, Diagnostic Instruments and Personal Communication. The news was reported by Ingeniøren (The Engineer).
