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.
