Red Dot Award-Winning Hearing Aids Orka One

Orka One is an FDA-registered Class II 510K exempt medical device and the world’s first hearing aid to create a hearing solution that’s highly effective and stylish. What it brings together are the ease and function of wireless earbuds with cutting-edge technologies:

  • Built-in Bluetooth 5.0, compatible on multiple Bluetooth devices, enables hands-free calls and improves Orka One’s connection stability and sound quality;
  • Powered by proprietary AI DeNoise technology, Orka One achieves automatic noise reduction and speech enhancement, self-adaptive to changes in surroundings;

Orka One bridges the gap between headphones and hearing aids in terms of both technology and design. It offers the user considerable freedom along with modern aesthetics, commented the Red Dot Jury.

On that note, Ben Sun—CEO of Orka—reflects, We are honored to receive the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2021 as we continue to bring together design and technologies for seeking better solutions and confronting the hearing loss challenge.
