The GN Group is a global leader in intelligent audio solutions that let you hear more, do more and be more than you ever thought possible. Their ambitious 150-year journey has taken them from telegraph cables to radio waves and intelligent audio engineering. To celebrate this anniversary, GN look to their unique competences within medical, professional and consumer audio solutions to help them continue to transform lives through the power of sound. GN was founded with a truly innovative and global mindset. Today, they honor that legacy with world-leading expertise in the human ear, sound, wireless technology, miniaturization and collaborations with leading technology partners. GN’s solutions are marketed by the brands ReSound, Beltone, Interton, Jabra and BlueParrott in 100 countries. Founded in 1869, the GN Group employs more than 6,000 people.
