Summary

'Facett' 3a Large Wishbone (Smooth pebble with wishbone interior - larger form) no magnet holes hearing device charger manufactured by Blamey Saunders in Melbourne and launched in 2018.

The wishbone series tested an approach to housing the modules in a vertical format, attaching them to a central spire in the ovoid form. The approach also was the first in a series of curvilinear forms. The large wishbone provided space for 3 modules on either side of the central spine (6 total) while the top area was for the DSP modules. While not pursued further, this central spine provided final inspiration for the central element in the final charger.

The 'Facett' hearing devices were designed by Melbourne designer Leah Heiss who was inspired by the beauty of Museum Victoria's geology collection. Launched in 2018, they were carefully designed to be a hearing device that looks good and that users want to wear. Issues addressing stigma, useability, access and cost make this collection even more unique in the hearing device industry at this time.
