Starkey is an American hearing technology brand with headquarters in 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, 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 star of the Livio range is undoubtedly the Livio 2400 AI. The innovative device, which Starkey refers to as a ‘Healthable’ hearing aid offers far more than just first-class hearing. Its artificial intelligence technology transforms the hearing aid into an activity and health tracker.

Linking with your Bluetooth-enabled device and using the Thrive Hearing app, your hearing aids can monitor your health and activity data such as how many steps you take, how much you use your hearing, your social interactions and even your heart rate. The hearing aids will even keep you safe by sending alerts to your assigned contacts if you fall. Alongside these health and wellbeing features, the Livio AI hearing aids can also ensure you can effortlessly engage with the world around you thanks to their translate and transcribe features.

  • Self Check to understand your hearing aid’s performance
  • Telehealth Remote Programming
