(April 3, 2015) Chicago, IL – Beltone announced that Beltone Boost™, one of the most powerful hearing aids on the market today, received a 2015 Red Dot Award for Product Design. The award acknowledges Beltone's design excellence in creating a comfortable hearing aid that helps wearers overcome significant hearing challenges.
“Beltone Boost represents a unique combination of functional design and powerful features,” said Beltone President Todd Murray. “This award validates the relentless effort our team put into developing an attractively designed super power hearing aid that addresses more profound hearing needs.”
Released in 2014, Beltone Boost offers a range of advanced sound processing features designed for challenging listening situations, including Feedback Eraser™, CrossLink Directionality™ and Sound Shifter™. These features help wearers control their hearing experience and reconnect with sounds or conversations they might have been missing.
The award-winning design features a compact, ergonomic shape and HPF80 NanoBlock™ technology, an environmental protective coating that seals the entire instrument and protects it from moisture, sweat and dirt.
Beltone Boost wearers also benefit from Made for iPhone® integration that allows them to simply and discreetly control their hearing aids through their iPhone, iPad® or iPod touch® without an adapter or intermediary device. Wearers can also use Beltone Boost as wireless headphones to talk on the phone, use FaceTime®, listen to music and receive GPS directions directly through the hearing aids. The Beltone HearPlus app offers additional customizable hearing options.

The Red Dot Award was created by Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen and with around 17,000 entries each year is one of the best-respected design competitions in the world.
