Hearing instruments by Siemens: innovative and successful
Even Werner von Siemens was concerned to make communication easier for hearing-impaired people. In 1878, he invented a telephone for the hearing-impaired, laying the cornerstone for an ongoing success story that is already more than 130 years old.
Today, hearing systems by Siemens are developed and marketed by the Audiology Solutions Business Unit, part of the Healthcare Sector at Siemens. Siemens Audiology Solutions has a total of more than 4,000 employees.
