Starkey Hearing Devices in Algonquin, Elgin, St. Charles and Huntley
Starkey hearing aids are the new kid on the block when comparing the long histories of the other hearing aid manufacturers. Starting out as a hearing aid repairman, the purchase of the Starkey Labs ear mold company by William Austin in 1970 touched off one of the most well-known hearing aid manufacturers in the world.
Five U.S. presidents, two popes, Mother Teresa, Nelson Mandela and other notable leaders were served by Starkey hearing aids. In spite of internal struggles with management, Starkey emerged in 2017 as a leader in the use of artificial intelligence in hearing aids.
Starkey’s Passion for Advanced Hearing Solutions Drives Innovation
“Hear better. Live better.” This simple approach to hearing care is a part of the passion driving the innovations behind Starkey hearing aids. The introduction of Halo in 2014 marked Starkey’s commitment to iPhone connectivity and further high-tech naturally clear sound processing advancements caught the attention of music lovers in 2017.
The development of Livio AI launched Starkey’s latest innovative superiority with its capacity to track physical activity and cognitive health as measured by hearing aid use via embedded sensors combined with artificial intelligence. Livio AI allows for language translation, fall detection and alerts, tap control, and other features.

Remote Support Using Starkey’s Thrive Care
