There are 6 major hearing aid manufacturers, and each of them come with their own set of strengths/weaknesses. Overall, all of the hearing aid manufacturers offer equivalent products; however, one manufacturer that stands out with their Artificial Intelligence is Starkey. At Gardner Audiology in New Port Richey, FL, our providers are trained to work with all Starkey products, and can help you with your existing devices, as well as provide recommendations for new hearing aids!
Starkey’s newest line of hearing aids is called Evolv. These hearing aids offer the latest and greatest in Artificial Intelligence! Features like activity tracking, fall detection, language translation, and calendar reminders are all available with the Evolv line of hearing aids. These hearing aids also include Telehear, which allows for remote telehealth services with the use of a smartphone!
Starkey Evolv hearing aids are available in all styles – behind-the-ear (BTE) and custom in-the-ear (ITE). Starkey even introduced Bluetooth connectivity in their extra small completely-in-canal (CIC) custom hearing aids! With Bluetooth connectivity, you are able to not only control your hearing aids with a remote-control app, but you can also stream audio with a compatible phone model! These hearing aids are fully compatible with iPhones and most Apple products, as well as many Android phones!
Another really cool feature of Starkey Evolv hearing aids, when used with their Thrive Hearing Control app, is their ‘Find My Hearing Aids’ feature! Using this feature, you can locate where your hearing aids were last connected to your phone. This has been especially helpful and effective for patients who may misplace their hearing aids after taking a mask off.
