CES 2020 Innovations Honoree Olive Union Launches Olive Smart Ear

Olive Union – named a CES 2020 Innovation Honoree by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA) for outstanding design and engineering – is launching the Olive Smart Ear hearing amplifier at CES 2020. Olive Union will exhibit the Olive Smart Ear hearing amplifier at booth #44164 at Tech West, Sands Expo.

Whether you’re in a crowded restaurant struggling to hear a story or trying to enjoy your favorite show, the wireless Olive Smart Ear seamlessly improves the sound of your everyday life. When paired to your smartphone with Bluetooth, the Olive Smart Ear amplifies your phone conversations, so you don’t miss a thing. Participate more fully in your daily conversations and enjoy a crystal-clear listening experience when watching television.

There’s no need for a time-consuming fitting: simply complete a five-minute hearing test on your smartphone using Olive’s free app. It automatically optimizes frequencies while canceling background noise and feedback and is customized to your own hearing.

Using patented hearing amplification technology for clear and balanced sound, Olive Smart Ear’s pre-set modes instantly adjust to various listening environments. The rechargeable battery offers up to 12 hours of talk time and up to 10 days of standby time and recharges in a sleek, portable charging case.

Inspired by his own uncle’s experience with hearing impairment, Olive Union Founder and CEO Owen Song designed the Smart Ear to avoid the embarrassment that’s associated with wearing conventional hearing aids. As a result, the Olive Smart Ear is surprisingly elegant, functional and comfortable. Song also made the product affordable and accessible – so there’s no astronomical markup typical of traditional hearing amplifiers.

The Olive Smart Ear will be available in white or black for $249 for a single earbud with portable charging case.
