The Zon Hearing Aid transforms the beige shapeless traditional hearing aid into a dynamic, sculptural object that ergonomically embraces the geometry of the ear while taking advantage of the latest technology to provide the highest audio quality. Most hearing impaired listeners wait up to eight years before being fitted with a hearing aid because of its perceived association with disability and weakness. The Zon turns the hearing aid into a coveted high-performance design object.

Cooper-Hewitt launched the Peoples Design Award in 2006 to give the public a voice on what they feel is good design.
