Starkey Livio

Since it was founded in 1967, the Starkey hearing aid brand has been focused on how to improve hearing technology to create the best hearing aids possible.

Starkey has become renowned for being a world leader in hearing innovation, pioneering the world’s first in-the-canal hearing aid and the first custom, an invisible digital hearing aid that’s fully programmable. During 2010, the company launched several innovative products such as wireless hearing aids, allowing wearers to stream stereo sound directly to their hearing aids without having to wear any additional relay devices.

Starkey’s devices cater for most types of hearing loss and the company supplies its extensive range of invisible, digital and wireless hearing aids to over 100 markets worldwide. While Starkey is often most associated with in-the-canal hearing aids, it continues to develop a range of hearing aid styles and models that are powerful, while also comfortable and discreet and fit the individual needs of each wearer. The brand offers a broad range of hearing aids such as their revolutionary completely-in-canal (CIC), behind-the-ear (BTE), receiver-in-ear (RIC) and invisible hearing aids.

Starkey Livio reviews

Built on Starkey’s powerful Thrive platform, Livio hearing aids provide superior sound quality, personalised 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 customise 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
  • Heart Rate: Monitors your heart rate
  • Translate: Translates speech into up to 27 languages
  • Transcribe: Transcribes conversations into close captioning for you to view on your smartphone screen
