Heritage

The GN Group proudly builds on 150 years of expertise, capabilities and insight to produce some of the most innovative audio solutions in the world.

In 1869, our founder C.F. Tietgen envisioned a more connected world. Since then, our ambitious 150-year journey has taken us from telegraph cables to radio waves and intelligent audio engineering. 

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, the world’s first Made for Apple hearing aid with direct stereo sound streaming, and the world’s first professional active noise cancellation headphone certified for all leading Unified Communication platforms.

To celebrate our anniversary, we look to our unique competences within medical, professional and consumer audio solutions to help us continue to transform lives through the power of sound.
