Starkey Livio

Starkey is a privately owned global hearing technology company based in Eden Prairie, Minnesota. Founded by William F Austin in the 1960s, Starkey has become renowned for its innovative design and development of advanced digital hearing solutions.

Today, Starkey is the only American-owned hearing technology provider and supplies hearing solutions to more than 100 markets around the world. Starkey has created an extensive range of invisible, wireless, and digital hearing aids that people with most types of hearing loss can benefit from.

While Starkey is perhaps best known for its early development of in-the-canal (ITC) hearing aids, the company has continued to develop a range of hearing aid styles to best fit the individual needs of the wearer. Starkey’s extensive range of hearing aids includes receiver-in-ear (RIC) hearing aids that are packed with features, powerful behind-the-ear (BTE) models, and completely-in-canal (CIC) and invisible options.

Starkey Livio reviews

Built on Starkey’s powerful Thrive platform, Livio hearing aids provide superior sound quality, personalized control, remote programming, and memory management. Available in a choice of styles, including receiver-in-canal (RIC) and behind-the-ear (BTE), Starkey Livio hearing aids are Bluetooth-enabled devices that allow you to adjust and control your hearing aids with just a few taps on your iOS or Android device. Using the Thrive platform, you can easily customize your settings and with Thrive, you can program your hearing aid so it will learn your preferences and patterns and adjust your hearing aid automatically.

Livio AI hearing aid

The top of the range Livio device is the Livio 2400 AI (artificial intelligence) which is the most expensive model in the Livio range. Starkey calls the Livio AI, a ‘Healthable’ hearing aid. While offering high-quality hearing, it also acts as an activity tracker that communicates with your smartphone or Bluetooth enabled device and tracks your data such as heart rate, movement activity, hearing aid use, and social interactions. Other features exclusive to the Livio AI hearing aid include:

  • Brain and Body tracking: Tracks your brain and body activities
  • Fall Alert: Using the Thrive Hearing Control app, the hearing aids will send alerts to your assigned contacts if you fall
