For the first time, EssilorLuxottica will exhibit at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas January 9-12 2024, showcasing the Company’s bold moves in consumer technology. The Company’s booth will showcase Nuance Audio, first-of-its-kind glasses with advanced hearing solution, as well as Ray-Ban Meta smart glasses and other innovative solutions in the world of optics.
“Throughout our 10-year smart eyewear journey, we have honed our R&D, manufacturing, and distribution capabilities through several partnerships and product releases, including the recent introduction of RayBan Meta. At CES, we will take our place among the world’s leading innovators with a product, Nuance Audio, that has the potential to improve quality of life for over a billion people,” said Francesco Milleri, Chairman and CEO at EssilorLuxottica.
At its booth (#8725) in CES’s North Hall, the Company will showcase a prototype for Nuance Audio, a pair of glasses with advanced hearing technology built in seamlessly. Hearing solutions is an underpenetrated market where, similar to vision care decades ago, consumers are averse to wearing traditional corrective devices for a number of reasons including their visibility, discomfort and price.
Designed for consumers with mild to moderate hearing loss, Nuance Audio will eliminate the psychological barrier that has stood in the way of adoption of traditional hearing aids integrating proprietary state of-theart open-ear hearing technology into fashionable eyeglasses. Nuance Audio is expected to launch in the market starting with North America in the second half of the year.
Nuance Audio, Ray-Ban Meta and HELIX are a testament to EssilorLuxottica’s commitment to moving the eyewear industry forward into a new era of interconnected and AI-powered devices and solutions.
