Starkey Hearing Technologies—an Eden Prairie, Minn-based hearing technology company—is launching a new line of hearing aids based on the company’s research in virtual reality, advanced neuroscience, and audiology and signal processing, Starkey announced. Designed to create an immersive hearing experience for patients, the iQ product lines include: Muse iQ, a complete line of 900sync™ technology, wireless hearing aids; SoundLens Synergy iQ, a new invisible-in-the-canal hearing aid; Halo iQ, smartphone-compatible hearing aids; and the brand-new TruLink Remote.

New Features with Acuity OS 2, Inspired by Virtual Reality Research

Built with Starkey Hearing Technologies’ proven Synergy platform and Acuity™ OS 2 operating system, the iQ technologies include a suite of new features that deliver the presence, clarity, and personalization patients have previously missed during the moments that matter most, the company said. Four of the most notable new features include:

  • Acuity Immersion – Designed to leverage microphone placement to aid with high-frequency information for improved sound quality and sense of special awareness, this technology has the potential to help patients relearn key acoustic brain cues to support clear speech, a sense of presence, and spatial attention for connection to their environment. Acuity Immersion takes the key natural cues needed for spatial awareness and shifts them to provide the wearer with both clear speech and a sense of presence and connection to their environment. By giving the wearer’s brain access to these cues, iQ hearing aids can help wearers’ brains relearn these key cues and thereby reassert spatial perception.
  • Acuity Immersion Directionality – Designed to restore front-to-back cues for a more natural, safer listening experience.
  • Speech Indicators for memory – Provide descriptive names for memory environments rather than numeric indicators.
  • Smart VC – Allows for an increase in gain in all channels not already at maximum, to give wearers a desired increase in loudness when needed.

“The iQ line represents a brand-new dimension in hearing technology research and innovation,” Starkey Hearing Technologies Chief Technology Officer and Executive Vice President of Engineering Achin Bhowmik said. “We anticipate that our new products will have a dramatic impact on our patients’ lives—and change the game in the global hearing aid industry.”
