Starkey Hearing Aids
Starkey’s simple approach to hearing care drives the innovation behind its motto, “Hear better. Live better.” Launched in 1970 by William Austin, who purchased Starkey Labs ear mold company and applied his expertise in hearing aid repair, Starkey has served five US presidents, two popes, Mother Teresa, Nelson Mandela, and other notable world leaders.
The rapid rise of Starkey as a world-renown hearing instrument manufacturer is due to innovation and aggressive marketing strategies in an elite market. Though internal issues with management led to a brief setback, the Starkey brand overcame those issues and emerged in a new niche as the leader in the use of artificial intelligence in hearing aids since 2017.
Starkey’s Hearing Aid Technology Innovations
Halo (2014) was the benchmark of Starkey’s commitment to iPhone connectivity and a major leap in the direction of naturally clear sound processing advancements. Upon that foundation, the company built Livio AI, its most advanced technological breakthrough that included wellness support for hearing aid wearers.
Built on first-generation Livio AI, Livio Edge AI is a giant leap toward enhancing the experience of Starkey hearing aid wearers, boosting the capacity of your device to track your physical activity and cognitive health as well as language translation, fall detection and alerts, tap control, and other cutting-edge AI features.
With Edge Mode, your Starkey hearing aid automatically conducts an AI-based analysis of the acoustic environment and then makes immediate adjustments to improve speech intelligibility, especially when the speaker is wearing a face mask. The Thrive app facilitates SmartPhone connectivity that allows users to link all of their digital devices with their hearing aids for enhanced sound quality as well as the capacity to share health monitoring data.
Starkey’s Thrive Care Remote Support
Thrive Care, provided by Starkey, adds a virtual solution for ongoing counseling and support from your hearing care provider, as well as offers your other healthcare providers access to health monitoring information gathered by your advanced technology hearing device.
