Intiga is the world’s smallest, fully wireless hearing device,
designed with a focus on maximum discreetness, comfort
Focus on End Users and Hearing Care Professionals
The goal was to ease the transition of first-time users to a world of enhanced sound.
We had an acute focus on all aspects of concern to end-users and hearing care
professionals. Every detail of the device was tested, reworked and validated. From
the ergonomics of the battery door nail grip, to the ease of changing the speaker wire,
to the shape of the in-ear-speaker and how it could conform to the ear canal.
The lightweight shell design houses highly advanced technology perfectly crafted to fit inside and to make Oticon Intiga the smallest fully wireless hearing device in the world. Its shell surface is clean and unbroken; its organic shape follows the physical contour of the ear, achieving a close, comfortable fit – making it almost invisible behind the ear.
Having solved numerous projects for Oticon over the past years, this project
represented our closest collaboration yet. Spurred by a strong track record, we
set out to raise awareness of the various potentials of design within the
organisation, resulting an a more integrated role for design in Oticon’s product
Through a period of 30 months from startup to product launch, I was included in
the process every step of the way.
