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.Read Manuel's full story.

TOP BLUETOOTH CONNECTIVITY FOR STAYING IN TOUCH WITH EASE
„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!“
ON AND ON IT GOES
WITH CHARGING-ON-THE-GO FOR COMPLETE FLEXIBILITY
“I can get the power I need for a long day at work while I’m jogging in the morning. And, at the same time, I can stream my personal playlist directly from my phone into my ears — that motivates me even more! Working nine to five doesn’t exist in my business. Often, after a day spent filming, I’ll still have evening events. It’s then that I’m really glad that I can rely on my Styletto Connect. The lithium-ion battery delivers a full day’s wearing* with 5 hours of streaming. Just charge it in the charger overnight and you’re ready to go.
And the best thing is, I can take the small, stylish charger anywhere, it even fits in my pocket. So I can charge my Styletto Connect up to three times without a cable when I’m on the road — it’s really great. ”
