Welcome to the new Made for iPhone® hearing aid, the Starkey Halo™. It’s the next generation hearing aid technology that can stand on its own two feet and still be compatible with most common Apple products like iPhone®, iPad® or iPod® touch.
Starkey is right when they point out the fact that despite all the awesome hearing enhancing and protection technologies that are coming out, most people still have no idea they need help. They think it’s normal to constantly say, “huh?” after someone says just about anything on their phone without the volume blasting.
“Sold under the Starkey brand name, Halo combines Starkey Hearing Technologies’ superior hearing technology with iOS to deliver a revolutionary solution that makes every aspect of life better – from conversations to phone calls to listening to music. Halo will connect with the TruLink™ Hearing Control app, which is available as a free download in the App Store.”
You’ve Got to Hear This!
Ever had someone hand you their snazzy headphones and pause the music while you put them on so you can hear some super cool new song? Then, once you’ve got them in place they tap the screen and KABOOM! The first thing that goes through your mind is, “this is how they just listen to music by default?”
The common notion is, “just make it louder” without any real emphasis on increasing the actual quality of their hearing. There’s this perception that hearing aids are only for elders. Actually, hearing aids are more like hearing enhancers than ever before.
Starkey can’t return the sense of hearing, but these new technologies can dramatically enhance it and stand as glimmers for the near future of innovation in the industry…with just a tinge of forward thinking.
