Starkey Hearing Technologies
Starkey Hearing Technologies is a leader in technology in addition to being committed to philanthropy. The Starkey Hearing Foundation has provided more than 1 million hearing aids to people around the world. They are the only privately held and American made company in the hearing industry. They are dedicated to the art and science of better hearing. Starkey offers a wide range of hearing aids through several of its brands ranging from invisible hearing aids to a hearing aid designed to relieve tinnitus.
The SoundLens Synergy technology allows the hearing aid to gradually and automatically adjust settings for new hearing aid wearers. This lets the brain get re-acquainted with processing some sounds that are “new” again.
Halo iQ and Halo 2
Halo iQ and Halo 2 technologies are included in their in-canal receiver hearing aids with part of the device over the back of the ear. They can stream phones calls, music and more from your iPhone to your hearing aid. Their technology eliminates whistling and feedback. In addition to working with the iPhone, they also can connect directly to an iPad, iPod and the Apple Watch.
Their in-ear canal models offer SoundLens Synergy iQ and SoundLens Synergy technology. These models are custom fitted and virtually invisible. They treat moderately severe to mild hearing loss. They offer wireless streaming and automatically adjust to different noise environments.
