Frequently Asked Questions
Livio is Made for iPhone, which means it can connect directly with iPhones to stream music, phone calls, and more. Livio is also compatible with the new Android protocol, Audio Streaming for Hearing Aids (ASHA), allowing direct streaming from select Android devices with Android 10 and Bluetooth 5.0. If your phone isn't directly compatible with Livio, you can still get Bluetooth functionality via the Remote Microphone +.
To talk hands-free on the phone requires the Remote Mic + accessory. This will allow you to keep your phone in your pocket/purse, etc, and the microphone on the accessory will pick up your voice so the caller can hear you.
No. To stream audio from the TV you'll need the TV Streamer accessory.
On a full charge, your hearing aids will last about 24 hours if you do no streaming. If you do stream, that number could drop to around 16 hours.
Your battery will last a minimum of 3 years. After that point, your Starkey provider will send your hearing aid to Starkey for a battery replacement. We expect most providers to charge between $150-$250 per device for this service.
When the battery is low, you'll hear a spoken notification through the hearing aid that says "battery." Then, 10-15 minutes later, you'll hear a long tone, and the hearing aid will die shortly after that and will require charging before use.
The battery should last long enough that this isn't an issue. But if your battery does quit, you have a few options. First, if you have your charger with you, it has a built-in battery which stores 3 full reserve charges, so you can charge your hearing aids that way, without needing access to electricty. Or, if you have Starkey's pocket-sized Mini Turbo Charger, you can turbo charge your hearing aids in just 7 minutes, getting you 3.5 hours of power, and that also doesn't require plugging into an outlet.
The hearing aids will be fully charged in less than 3.5 hrs, providing 24 hours of power.
Yes, the charger has a built-in compartment for a dessicant puck (included), for dehumidifying the aids.
Using either the onboard rocker switch, push button, or the handheld remote, you can control the volume and program. Using the Thrive app, you also have access to an equalizer that lets you adjust the base and treble of the hearing aids.
If you use a model that takes disposable batteries, simply open the battery door to turn the hearing aid off, and when you close it, the aid will turn on. If you use a rechargeable model, the aid will automatically turn off when you put it back in it's charger, and will turn on when you take it out. To turn a rechargeable aid off manually, just press and hold the pushbutton for 3 seconds. Repeat to turn it back on.
Yes, but it in order for this feature work, your phone and hearing aids must've been paired before the hearing aids were lost. If they were, and you lose your hearing aids, the app will tell you show you a location on a map, where the hearing aids were last connected to the phone.
The following models are CROS compatible: RIC 312, RIC R, BTE 13
The following models include a telecoil: ITE R, RIC R, BTE 13, BTE R

The sound quality is good. However the Bluetooth part is poor it keeps dropping the signal. I have to turn off my phone an turn back on an than it usually hooks up Also when I mute them an go out of the app it cancels the mute I suppose this could be part of the app not working correctly. I also had problems with them turning on after I picked them up from the charger not sure why but they eventually would come on over all there good despite some of flaws I’m a little harsh only because when I pay that kind of money I expect them to work perfectly.

I have worn my new hearing aids for about four weeks now. So far I am completely satisfied with the sound quality. I had my old ones for six years. I can definitely see the improvement in the new ones. I went with the same brand since I was happy with my old ones. I upgraded to rechargeable and am so happy I did. Overall I'm satisfied with the look and feel (very comfortable) of my new hearing aids.

I have worn Starkey Z Series i110 hearing aids for a few years, with decent success. Despite they very high price I was quoted I took these on a trial recently as they were on promotion as being brand new, and hence discounted just a bit. I am thrilled with the technology, they are a drastic improvement over the previous aids. The new accessories are much sleeker too, that is a nice change, I am loving using the remote microphone. I do wish these aids would connect directly to my iPhone though, but I am one happy gal with these Livios.

My hearing drops off starting at 1k and goes to nothing at 4k. I have the Starkey receiver-in-canal, smartphone compatible, Livio model. I am pleased with these hearing aids because I can hear birds now and conversations and these are rechargeable too. I can adjust volume and switch to other hearing programmed into the hearing aids both on the hearing aids themselves and with the smartphone programs.

My biggest complaint is that the hearing aids do not keep the sound levels. I have to constantly set the hearing aids on its charger, then recalibrate via iPhone, Accessibility, Hearing Devices, then make sure they both are listed (left/right) and adjust the Microphone Level. This goes on several times during the day.

May hearing aid person says it's not the fault of the hearing aid, but rather an Apple problem. I don't buy that. Why can Starkey not get together with Apple, since they know of the problem? These here, all of the sudden are dead on one side or the other.

Then there is the malfunctioning of either side when I listen to a Video. The sound comes in either on the left, or on the right, or not at all. Also, Phone calls are a pain! The sound sound does NOT come in on BOTH ears! IT HAPPENS ALL OF THE TIME!!! I wished I had chosen the battery operated hearing aids. At least they work all day, until the battery gets low.

Bottom line: I have to make do with these hearing aids until Jaunuary 2022, when I can buy new ones with the help of our insurance. SO NO, I AM NOT SATISFIED.

Sound quality is good and they are very comfortable to wear. I even forget I have them on. The only con I have experienced is in the ease of putting them on. I have MS and my fingers don't work as well as everyone else's so it takes more time and effort to put the hearing aids on. I was in a store yesterday, and for some reason my left hearing aid came out. Since my fingers don't work well, I had to put the hearing aid in my purse until I returned to my car where I could look in the mirror and put it back on.

Livid 2400. JUNK! I’ve made countless trips to my provider with bluetooth pairing problems. Both devices have already been replaced once and I have yet another appointment today. Disgusted with these hearing aids.

I am in my trial period now so I am testing different degrees of volume. I have been having trouble adjusting the TV sound since it varies sometime from program to program. I like the fact that they recharge over night. Much less trouble than the batteries.
Using my Iphone to make adjustments is also convenient.

So far sound quality on Starkey 2400i is good. There are still some issues with background sound-it does not block out the background noise. When talking on the phone the sound does not come out clear-it cracks-so it is sometimes hard to hear the words that the person is saying. The batteries last about 6-7 days.

I am trying out the Livio 2400. This is my 2nd pair in less than 2 weeks. The sound quality is terrible! Sounds like the sound that comes from the Storm Troopers in Star Wars. The program keeps switching on it's own. The 1st day with the 2nd trial pair the program switched by itself from television to normal 12 full times in 40 minutes. Today, the program switched 6 times from normal to normal in 5 minutes. As far as I'm concerned, these hearing aids are a piece of junk compared to my older Widex aids. I'm returning these. I cannot understand people talking to me much less the television. Listening to music is worthless. Do not purchase these aids. You'll be sorry. If I could give these a rating of zero I would but I have to give it a 1.
