Starkey Hearing Aids

Manufacturers / Starkey Hearing Aids

The brainchild of hearing aid repair expert William Austin, who purchased Starkey Labs earmold company in 1970, Starkey hearing aids were the result of applying his expertise to the development of hearing aids.

Starkey’s simple philosophy, “Hear better. Live better,” combined with aggressive marketing that targeted an elite market, made the company a renowned hearing aid manufacturer almost overnight as five US presidents, two popes, Mother Teresa, Nelson Mandela, and other notable world leaders discovered the benefits of better hearing, thanks to their Starkey hearing aids.

Taking a lead role in AI sound processing innovation in the 21st century, Starkey is further distinguishing itself in the hearing aid industry.

AI Sound Processing

In search of naturally clear sound processing, Starkey made a technological breakthrough in AI sound processing while attempting to solve iPhone connectivity in the early 21st century. These AI sound processing innovations led to the development of several advanced features that reached well beyond the scope of traditional hearing aid technology.

Starkey hearing aids use an AI-based analysis of your acoustic environment as you move from one location to another in order to identify and automatically adjust the new surroundings in order to deliver a sound profile with improved speech intelligibility.

The Importance of Scheduling a Hearing Assessment

Because it is the beginning of identifying the type and severity of hearing loss in order to customize a plan of treatment or preventive measures, scheduling a hearing assessment is a critical step in receiving better hearing care.

Even when a measurable hearing loss is not detected during a hearing assessment, the results establish a baseline against which future deterioration can be measured.

To ensure your hearing health, do not delay having a hearing test. Take the first step on the journey to better hearing and a healthier life by scheduling a hearing assessment today.
