MEET MANUEL CORTEZ
HEARING AID WEARER AND STYLE ICON
Manuel Cortez is a true creative all-rounder: Actor, photographer, style expert, film director. He became famous as the presenter of the German TV show „Schrankalarm“ and as an author of style guides. In his celebrity life, he is constantly on the go. What matters to him are the finer things in life: fashion, design and good food.
Since 2012, Manuel has suffered from hearing loss caused by a wakeboard accident. At first, the idea of wearing a hearing aid was out of the question for him. In his eyes, they were ugly medical devices for the elderly.
Until he discovered the Styletto Connect HEARWEAR™ from Signia, that is. The stylish design inspired him as much as the innovative functionality. Since then, he wears the high-tech gadgets with conviction and at every opportunity.
„The way I dress, which accessories I wear — for me, it expresses an attitude.
With Styletto Connect, I‘ve finally found a hearing aid that matches my idea of style. The sleek design, the trendy colors, the cool metal look — it‘s something to be seen. And the technology also makes my life easier: the lithium-ion battery has the power to last through the day with me. With the small, compact charger I can charge my Styletto Connect comfortably, even when I‘m on the go. No annoying battery changes.
„Of course, in my job I‘m always on the go: a photo shoot in Berlin, a video production in Hamburg or a promotion in Munich. It‘s good that Styletto Connect is equipped with Bluetooth. That way I can always be reached by phone and can stay in touch with all the people that matter to me — whether it‘s making an appointment with my agent or simply chatting with friends.
Super cool: With my StreamLine Mic, I can even make hands-free calls. That‘s incredibly practical, while driving, for example!“
