Starkey Hearing Technologies Introduces Halo, A Revolutionary New Hearing Aid

Starkey Hearing Technologies, one of the world’s leading hearing technology companies, is excited to introduce Halo™, a Made for iPhone® hearing aid engineered to be compatible with iPhone, iPad® and iPod touch®. More than 36 million Americans have a hearing loss, but only 1 out of 5 people who could benefit from a hearing aid actually wears one, according to the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD). The Halo hearing aid provides a new, discreet hearing aid option that seamlessly connects with iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

Halo, which is sold under the Starkey brand name, combines Starkey Hearing Technologies’ superior hearing with iOS to deliver a revolutionary new hearing solution that makes every aspect of life better – from conversations to phone calls to listening to music. Halo will connect with the TruLink Hearing Control App, an iOS exclusive app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, which is available at the App store.

“Halo brings what people love about Starkey hearing aids to anyone who suffers from hearing loss,” said Dave Fabry, Vice President of Audiology and Professional Services for Starkey Hearing Technologies. “Halo delivers new standards of performance and personalization, while providing convenient control and connectivity to iOS devices.”

Building on iOS features that let you do everyday things like making phone and FaceTime calls, listening to music and using Siri, Halo takes advantage of TruLink Technology and compatible iOS devices to meet the needs of today’s demanding and tech-savvy consumers. Halo and TruLink features include:

SoundSpace: Allows a wearer to easily adjust sound settings in any environment by simply moving a finger across the phone and then saving the preferred setting as a TruLink Memory

TruLink Memories: Provides wearers the ability to personalize and geotag memories to match what they do and where they go (e.g., Halo switches to Gym Memory when the wearer arrives at the gym)

Remote Control: allows the user to easily change hearing aid volume and memories to desired preferences via iPhone

Live Microphone: Allows recording, playing back and even emailing audio as it happens

Find My Hearing Aids: Provides the location and a time stamp of Halo hearing aids that are lost or misplaced

In addition to seamless integration with iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, Halo hearing aids are also standalone hearing aids packed with Starkey Hearing Technologies’ best-in-class performance features including feedback cancellation, adaptive noise management and directionality.

The Hearing Control App for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch is available for free on App Store at http://bit.ly/1kp4Wad.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
For far too long technology teams have lived in siloes. Not only physical siloes, but cultural siloes pushed by competing objectives. This includes informational siloes where business users require one set of data and tech teams require different data. DevOps intends to bridge these gaps to make tech driven operations more aligned and efficient.
For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk. Before you start big transformation projects or a cloud migration, make sure these changes won’t take down your entire organization.
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning. Boundary (now part of BMC) launched a new public-facing multi-tenant high resolution monitoring service on Amazon AWS two years ago, facing challenges and learning best practices in the early days of the new service.
Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals.
