Hearing Aid Description & Features
In the hearing aid world, it's often a safe bet to ignore superlatives often found in marketing, like "best," "most natural," or "smartest."
But, there's one exception to that rule, and that exception is Starkey Picasso.
Winning first place in our "Best in-the-ear Hearing Aids of 2020" survey, Starkey Picasso, and all Starkey in-the-ear models for that matter, are consistently ranked the highest by hearing care providers.
Maybe it's because Starkey got its start manufacturing custom earmolds, that they've improved their craft as the years went by, while so many other manufacturers viewed in-the-ear devices as a small and insignificant part of their product portfolios.
While occupying a small segment of the market, custom in-the-ear hearing aids are an excellent choice for many wearers, and when they are the choice, Starkey Picasso is the way to go.
Picasso is available in the smallest IIC styles (completely invisible), up to the largest and easiest-to-use full shell in-the-ear models. None of these models are rechargeable, but Starkey does now make an in-the-ear rechargeable hearing aid, so please reach out to us if you're interested!
All of the Starkey Picasso i2400 hearing aids have 24 channels and 4 customizable programs, regardless of their style.

Frequently Asked Questions
Accessories & Smartphone Apps
Surflink Media 2: $349
Plug it into the back of your TV or soundbar and the audio will be streaned directly to your hearing aids. Others can keep the TV at their preferred volume level, while you set your own volume via the app or on the hearing aids themselves.
Surflink Mini Mobile: $199
Want to stream audio like music, phone calls, and podcasts from your smartphone to your hearing aids? This device is a must-have, giving you Bluetooth connectivity between your hearing aids and phone. Mini Mobile also allows you to have hands free phone calls, as the microphone on the unit picks up your voice for the caller to hear, so you don't have to hold the phone to your mouth. And if you have a hard time hearing in noise, Mini Mobile also works as a remote microphone, which can be a lifesaver. Attach the Mini Mobile to a companion's shirt and their voice will stream directly to your hearing aids. Their voice will come through much stronger than all the competing noise in the environment.
Surflink Remote Mic 2: $249
The SurfLink Remote Microphone 2 is designed to stream audio directly to your 900 MHz wireless hearing aids. This discreet, lightweight microphone can be worn by a conversation partner to aid in one-on-one conversations or settings with multiple speakers. SurfLink Remote Microphone 2 has two different modes of operation, known as "Focus" or "Surround". When clipped vertically to a speaker's clothing, the Focus mode, with directional microphones, activates to reduct background noise. This is useful for listening to a single speaker when background noise is present. When placed horizontally (on its clip), Remote Microphone 2 switches to Surround mode to receive sound from all directions. This is useful for listening to multiple nearby speakers in quiet environments.
Surflink Mobile 2: $599
True hands-free cell phone conversations are here, thanks to Starkey's SurfLink Mobile 2 with JustTalk™.

The microphones have two modes: "Surround" for receiving sounds from all directions in a quiet environment, and "Focus" for hearing one person's voice in noisy environments.

I purchased the Picasso 2400i invisible in canal from Zip Hearing. Best price in town and excellent service. I have very small ear canals and they were able to make them for me. I love these hearing aids as very rarely are they noticed (depending on angle the other person is at). They will go through batteries every 3-4 days consistently. Since they are in the canal you will notice "machinery" noise, which are things like fans, clicking buttons, air conditioning, etc. but you'll get use to it. This other thing to know is that I have had 3 ear infections since owning these (never had ear infections in my lifetime). I recommend disinfectant wipes each and every use and to take them out once or so a day so your ear can air out. This seems to have helped resolve the issue. I also have small canals so the wax can build up fast. Hope this helps.
I am happy enough with my Picasso's, I got the invisible in canal model. While there are some things I don't like about them (one slips out, they feel annoying), overall they are the best invisible hearing aids that I have worn. Sound quality is excellent, my main concern is around the physical fit of the hearing aids, but I do not believe there is anything better, based on my research.
The sound quality is excellent. The size of the hearing aids are perfect and. They are not noticeable. I am very pleased with my purchase.The controls on the aids are easy to use and I especially like the crowd noise control. I have used Starkey hearing aids for about 7 years and my new ones the best ones I've owned.
5 stars for being the most invisible hearing aid I tried, but 3 stars for the following reasons.
-Occlusion. Terrible, never could get used to these hearing aids, I always feel plugged up. Better than others, yes, but still an issue that seems I cannot resolve through programming, remodeling, or any other way. The only way I find relief is by pulling them out slightly, but then they are visible, whistling, and not sitting properly.
-Lack of app compatibility. I would think that all hearing aids today could be controlled from an APP discreetly but I have found much to my disappointment that these cannot. Yes they have an app that is available but it is no what I would consider to be modern or seeming very tech forward.
-Lack of Bluetooth direct to hearing aids. Another big tradeoff I made with choosing the IIC invisibles is NO bluetooth. I don't want to wear a dongle to hear phones through my hearing aids.
Sigh..maybe next time I buy hearing aids they will meet all my requirements.
The old SoundLens Synergy IQ is great. You can still get them from Starkey but apparently not from Zip. Officially the Picasso IIC is the replacement. I'd prefer to go with a known quantity, the Synergy. But about occlusion, you get that because you didn't get a good, deep, ear canal impression. Getting that kind of impression is super difficult as it takes more skill and has more risk (touching the ear drum and freaking the patient out).
Very pleased. Bought these b/c I'd seen that they were considered probably the best invisible hearing aids on the market and I am not disappointed. Crystal clear hearing, 100% hidden, only thing needs improving is super short battery life of 2 days. And Bluetooth would be nice.
