Starkey Hearing Aids

Starkey believes in hearing's power to improve mental agility, foster active lifestyles, and nurture relationships, enhancing every aspect of your life.

Starkey - “Hear better. Live better.”

Despite its humble origins, Starkey has become one of the largest and most celebrated hearing aid manufacturers in the world. In 1967 founder Bill Austin started a small hearing aid repair shop after dropping out of medical school; by 1970, he had bought ear mould company Starkey Labs and began manufacturing hearing aids for the first time. Starkey has always been at the cutting-edge of hearing aid technology, and shortly after their founding became the first in the industry to offer a 90-day trial period for their hearing aids.

Their reputation skyrocketed when President Ronald Reagan started wearing their devices in 1983, and in the years since Starkey has helped a great many famous figures, including five United States presidents, two popes, Mother Teresa and Nelson Mandela – as well as millions of other customers.

Starkey’s appetite for innovation has continued unabated, and, in 2018, the company launched the Livio AI, the world’s first hearing aid with embedded sensors as well as revolutionary artificial intelligence technology.

In the Spring of 2020, they decided to go one step beyond and launched the Livio Edge AI, a trailblazing new design that incorporates their fantastic AI with excellent battery power, voice-activated commands and the widest possible array of interconnectivity between smartphone devices. This latest addition also boasts in-built, on-the-go diagnostic testing as a baseline function so that you can check your hearing wherever you are!
