Hearing Aid Description & Features
Released by Starkey on August 26, 2018 the Starkey Picasso i1600 falls under Starkey`s select technology level within the Picasso family.
As select technology, this hearing aid is the third best technology that Starkey has to offer, making it a solid choice for individuals with casual lifestyles, who need hearing aids that can deliver great sound quality in almost all environments. For individuals who spend a significant amount of time in noisy environments, a higher technology level should be considered for better perfomance in noise.
The Starkey Picasso i1600 hearing aid has 16 channels and 4 customizable programs, and that gives it the flexibility to digitally process sound in a way that sounds natural, and can also be adapted to the particular listening environment of the wearer.
The Picasso i1600 is powered by a size 10 battery which will need to be changed every 3-5 days, a size 13 battery which will need to be changed every 7-10 days, or a size 312 battery which will need to changed weekly. With a maximum potential gain of 70 SPL, the Picasso i1600 is suitable for individuals with mild to severe hearing loss.
Available in a range of custom in-the-ear sizes, the Picasso i1600 can be built to discreetly hide in the ear canal, or to be large enough for individuals with dexterity issues to easily handle it. This hearing aid is available in 7 color choices as shown below.

Based on 1 User Reviews
Good value for the money. Most comfortable inner ear device that I have tried and the least noticeable. Still not hearing perfectly but it has improved to I would estimate hearing 90% of speech clearly as compared to without aids maybe 30%. Drastic improvement in my quality of life and ability to interact and not WITHDRAW myself from every social activity.
