Introducing IQ Technology
Starkey Hearing Technologies hearing aid sales skyrocketed after President Ronald Reagan went public with his hearing loss in 1983. Reagan stepped out with a Starkey in-canal hearing aid. Reagan is only the first US President to align his brand with that of Starkey Hearing Technologies. Former Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush have also attended its Hearing Innovation Exposition events as keynote speakers in recent years.
Australian volunteers have recently travelled to Cambodia, Vanuatu, Malaysia and Bali, helping hundreds of people in these countries to connect with those around them and reach their full potential.
Starkey was the first manufacturer to collaborate with Apple. In 2014, the Halo hit the market, a hearing aid built specifically for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod. The Halo connects seamless with your device via the TruLink app, to stream calls, messages, music, and video content directly into the hearing aids with pristine, high-fidelity sound.
Starkey hearing aids rely on sound evidence for when new technology can make a real difference. If it doesn’t improve the hearing experience, it doesn’t go forward. Starkey always tests products thoroughly against other hearing aids, back up all claims, and make findings public.
Starkey Hearing Technologies was founded in Eden Prairie, Minnesota and still takes pride in its American heritage and history of ingenuity. It is the only American-owned major hearing aid manufacturer in the world and is the USA’s largest manufacturer, with sales of more than a million hearing aids each year.
Starkey Hearing Technologies operates in 100 markets around the world and boasts a Hearing Research Center in Berkeley, California. This state-of-the-art research facility builds on five decades of innovation to better understand the science of hearing loss and its impact on real lives. Currently, more than 100 different research and development projects are underway here – each of which could become the breakthroughs of the future. These insights power the superior technologies of Starkey products.
During the development of every new product, Starkey Hearing Technologies works closely with hearing health specialists and the people who will be wearing the products – like you. This ensures that any updates really will offer significant patient benefit. Starkey is laser-focused on finding smaller, easier and better ways to hear, but remains committed to launching new technologies only when measurable differences can be proven. If it won’t improve the quality of life for the wearer, they won’t do it.
Just some of the recent innovative developments Starkey has delivered include industry-leading invisible hearing aids, unmatched sound quality, simpler controls, and wireless connectivity advances.
When you wear Starkey Hearing Technologies hearing aids, you’ll notice the difference in both quality, and the support you’ll receive from Starkey’s network of hearing professionals around Australia.
