The GN heritage

Heritage

The GN Group proudly builds on 147 years of expertise, capabilities and insight to produce some of the best and most innovative audio devices in the world.

We have pioneered new communication experiences from wired to wireless – from the continental telegraph connections of the 19th century to the technologically advanced and user-friendly headsets and hearing aids of the 21st century. This gives us unrivalled understanding of sound and speech enabling us to make the most advanced solutions of their time.

We have consistently developed and brought to market what the world thought wasn’t possible. Our legacy of producing world first sound solutions and pioneering advancements in technology include 2.4 GHz technology in hearing aids for direct connectivity and the world’s first Made for iPhone hearing aid with direct stereo sound streaming. We launched the world’s first professional active noise cancelation headphone certified for all leading Unified Communication platforms, and launched the world’s first wireless Dolby sports earbuds with integrated heart rate monitor.
