Starkey created the invisible-in-canal hearing aid style when it launched the first SoundLens hearing aid in the year 2011. Starkey still stands out from the competition when it comes to making hearing aids that don't stand out. In our experience, Starkey has consistently built the smallest and most comfortable custom hearing aids in the world.
The latest SoundLens iQ hearing aids share the Synergy platform and Acuity OS 2 operating system of its Muse iQ sibling. SoundLens iQ keeps as much of Muse iQ's technology than can reasonably fit in such a tiny hearing aid. For example, SoundLens iQ includes ear-to-ear phone streaming so you can hold the phone to one ear, but hear it in two. It has got feedback cancellation to prevent whistling, and personalized therapeutic sounds for tinnitus relief technology. It's i2400 model is even compatible with SurfLink wireless accessories for remote control and audio streaming.
Starkey's Acuity Immersion technology, designed to restore a natural-sounding sense of direction, actually works better with invisible hearing aids than with other styles. That's because your own ears reflect sound toward the microphone of hearing aids hidden discreetly in your ear canal, just as they would reflect sound toward your eardrum in natural hearing.
You want to look, feel, and act as if you're not wearing hearing aids, even if you have severe hearing loss.
- You would like to try Speech Shift frequency-lowering technology to help you hear high-pitched sounds, such as women's' and children's voices. Music is your passion.
- You love the idea of dedicated sound processing for music, extended high-frequency response, and the ability to use standard headphones together with your hearing aids.
