Jabra Enhance Plus Earbuds Now Available Over The Counter
October 17, 2022

LOWELL, MASSACHUSSETTS – GN today announces that the Jabra Enhance Plus hearing enhancement earbuds are now available over the counter (OTC). This follows the US Food & Drug Administration’s (FDA) new regulation establishing an OTC hearing aid category, which is now in effect.

As an OTC product, “the Jabra Enhance Plus will help millions of Americans with unaddressed hearing  loss take the first step on their hearing health journey”. 

Today, millions of people in the US with hearing loss benefit from the advice and care of a hearing care professional. However, there are still 50 million more who find themselves  noticing some degree of hearing loss, perhaps occasionally and typically in noisy situations, who have not yet sought or found a solution that helps them with their hearing challenges. Jabra Enhance Plus is engineered specifically for this audience. 

Jabra Enhance Plus hearing enhancement earbuds ‘deliver a 3-in-1 experience of hearing  enhancement, music and calls in a miniaturized true wireless form factor design,” around half the size of Jabra’s smallest true wireless earbuds. It includes the calls and music  functionality that users expect from true wireless earbuds and provides hearing help for  users in a miniaturized, discreet and comfortable design. Their extremely small size helps  them visually blend in during conversations. The earbuds can be individualized via a user’s smartphone through the Jabra Enhance app. The simple set-up experience can be  completed in minutes and users will have access to convenient and simple controls to adjust  volume and focus mode for any environment. 

“The new OTC hearing aid regulation represents a significant opportunity to improve hearing  health for millions experiencing mild to moderate hearing loss. We look forward to bringing the Jabra Enhance Plus to more consumers  under the new OTC category and helping to improve people’s quality of life through the  power of sound.” 

–Calum MacDougall,  SVP at Jabra

Jabra Enhance Plus has been selling through GN’s network of ReSound and Beltone  hearing care partners and has succeeded in opening hearing health care to a new audience.  On average, Jabra Enhance Plus users are 18 years younger than users of GN’s  prescription hearing aid range*. With Jabra Enhance Plus under the new OTC hearing aid  category, this innovative hearing health solution will be more widely accessible to consumers in new channels. 

As an OTC product, Jabra Enhance Plus can be bought as easily as a pair of headphones in  Best Buy or online, but for those looking for more support, the nationwide network of  Certified Jabra Enhance Centers (supplied by GN’s select Hearing Care Professional  partners) is available to offer consultation and advice with the purchase.
