Starkey Hearing Technologies, Minneapolis, Minn, has introduced Halo™, a Made for iPhone® (MFi) hearing aid engineered to be compatible with iPhone, iPad®, and iPod® touch. The Halo hearing aid is designed to provide the more than 26 million Americans with untreated hearing loss a new discreet option that seamlessly connects with Apple devices.
Available March 31, Halo combines Starkey’s hearing aid technology with iOS to deliver a new hearing solution that makes every aspect of life better —from conversations to phone calls to listening to music. Halo will connect with the TruLink™ Hearing Control app, which is available as a free download in the App StoreSM.
“Halo brings what people love about Starkey hearing aids to anyone who suffers from hearing loss,” says Dave Fabry, vice president of Audiology and Professional Services for Starkey Hearing Technologies. “Halo delivers new standards of performance and personalization, while providing convenient control and connectivity to iOS devices.”
Building on iOS features that let you do everyday things like making phone and FaceTime® calls, listening to music and using Siri®, Halo takes advantage of TruLink technology and compatible iOS devices to meet the needs of today’s demanding and tech-savvy consumers. In addition to seamless integration with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, Halo hearing aids are also standalone hearing aids that are reportedly packed with best-in-class performance features, including feedback cancellation, adaptive noise management, and directionality.
