STARKEY HALO SERIES  
   
THE NEXT GENERATION OF STARKEY TECHNOLOGY  
   

Recently, Starkey released their new iPhone compatible product called Halo. Utilizing the TruLink Hearing Control app, Halo becomes not only a high performance hearing aid but a versatile partner of the iPhone. The mating of these two dynamic products yields true benefits for the user in the areas of;

  • Direct streaming of phone calls and other media,
  • ease of conversation,
  • ability to geotag personal events,
  • auto-memory change based on geotag history,
  • better conversation in automobiles through TruLink Adaptive Car Mode,
  • recording and emailing the recording in real time,
  • the ability of Siri to read out emails and texts
  • control of volume and memory selection.

Trulink SoundSpace allows users to easily adjust the instruments to meet the needs of their specific environment by simply sliding their finger across the screen to adjust frequency and tone. Once set, that setting can be saved as a memory to be easily recalled when in that environment next time without having to adjust all over again. Up to 20 memories can be created and stored in this manner.

The selection of a hearing aid depends not only on the audiology and budget, but lifestyle as well. The Halo product line is available in three performance levels comprised of the following:

Select Technology: Signified by the i70 model

Advanced Technology: Signified by the i90 model

Premium Technology: Signified by the i110 model Each performance level contains more features as the technology ladder is climbed. The more features, the more efficient the instrument in a wider array of listening situations. Add to this selection a variety of styles and colors of both behind-the-ear and in-the-ear and Starkey presents as having a solution for just about everyone.

Starkey's market research has guided them to what they feel are the primary "wants" by the consumer using hearing aids: to hear comfortably in noisy setting; to provide better high pitch hearing for better clarity; to transition seamlessly as new sounds are encountered from one situation to another; to be able to "personalize" the instruments for comfort; to eliminate feedback; to be sure the instruments are durable and dependable and dependable iPhone connectivity. To satisfy these "wants" as best as possible, Starkey Z Series products contain some or all of the following attributes depending on technology level:

  • Channels: Available in 16, 12, 8 channels relative to performance level
  • Acuity Directionality™: Aimed at better speech discrimination in noise and paired with the Speech ID feature.
  • Voice IQ²: For noise reduction strength
  • Spatial Mapping: For directionality in noise
  • Frequency Shifting: Relocates inaudible high frequency sounds to lower pitch frequencies that audible to the patient so they may be heard.
  • Acclimatization: Helps the user's transition to instruments with a stepped approach thus allowing for the instruments and the user to learn new sounds.
  • Sound Comfort: helps maintain soft sound audibility in loud surroundings.
  • Feedback Cancellation: Prevents annoying buzzing or whistling commonly associated with hearing aids in the past.
  • Hydrashield²®: A moisture barrier system to ensure continuous operation in all conditions.

One quality that is often overlooked is the fact that Starkey hearing aids are made in the U.S.A. All of these components working in concert make Starkey a viable choice amongst the premium manufacturers offering SmartPhone instruments.
