ePen
remote control

 

unlike traditional remote-controls for hearing aids, the ePen represents a very appealing and intuitive way to change settings. changing the volume works in a familiar way by turning the cap which doubles as a control dial. switching between different preset programs is done by pressing a toggle button. can be used even blindfolded.

the ePen overcomes the (especially for senior citizens) often very awkward handling of tiny hearing devices. the design of the remote resembles an elegant pen, matching its practical appeal as an unobtrusive accessory.
