History of innovations
Founded in 1987 as a spin-off from GN Danavox (the current GN ReSound), GN Netcom is among the leading and fastest growing suppliers of hands-free communications solutions, focusing specifically on three market segments: contact centers, offices and mobile.
Since its first headset product in 1987, GN Netcom has continuously developed new innovations based on leading-edge technology. Landmarks in GN Netcom's history include the first noise-canceling mic, the first multi-purpose amplifier, the first single-cord binaural headset, and the first headset with a built-in amplifier, to mention a few. In 2000, GN Netcom launched the world's first commercially available Bluetooth™ headset.
