Life is better with Halo™, the breakthrough hearing aid engineered to connect directly to your patient's iPhone®, iPad®, iPod touch®, and Apple Watch™ via our easy-to-use TruLink™ app. The ideal hearing solution for today's more mobile and plugged-in patient — Halo and TruLink deliver new standards of performance and personalization, while providing convenient control and effortless connectivity to the things they care about most.
Halo and TruLink deliver what patients want:
A More Natural Listening Experience
Starkey’s Binaural Spatial Mapping delivers maximum listening comfort for louder sounds while providing a more natural, overall sound. Voice iQ™² is a noise management and speech preservation system intended to let patients hear effectively in noise.
Superior Audibility in Noisy Environments
Thanks to Acuity Directionality™, our multichannel adaptive directionality solution, speech protection is improved in difficult listening situations. Starkey’s proprietary Speech ID detects speech even when it occurs behind the patient. The combination of these two innovative technologies results in consistent, high-fidelity sound that helps patients listen to speech and participate in conversations in even the noisiest environments. The system’s Micro-Electronic Mechanical Systems (MEMs) microphones are the same as found in today’s iPhone.
Distortion-Free Comfort in Loud Situations
Our ISO-Clear Compression delivers a more personalized listening experience by making soft speech sounds audible without affecting louder inputs. Loud sounds are discreetly managed while maintaining the quality of lower-level sounds.
Say Farewell to Feedback
Starkey’s best-in-class feedback cancellation system, PureWave Feedback Eliminator has the ability to manipulate how aggressively it performs, so feedback elimination can be personalized to the specific product and patient. It’s designed to identify, classify and eliminate annoying whistling and buzzing in all environments, so your patients experience feedback-free listening.
Laughs at Water and Wax
Halo features Starkey’s proprietary moisture protection, HydraShield®2. When combined with Halos’ unibody construction, this nano-coating delivers excellent protection from water, wax and oils.
Enjoy Every Conversation
Engineered to enhance real-time audibility by identifying high-frequency speech cues and replicating them in lower frequencies, Spectral iQ maintains frequency relationships retaining sound quality while providing clarity for high-frequency speech.
Join the Crowd With Active Noise Reduction
Comfort Boost allows patients to aggressively reduce noise on-demand while optimizing sound quality in environments like noisy restaurants or crowded rooms.
Make Control Adjustments a Thing of the Past
Auto Experience Manager provides gradual increased gain settings over a period of time to help first-time hearing aid patients transition to Halo.
