The art and science of custom hearing aids. Picasso
Built on our Synergy platform, Picasso hearing aids feature our new enhanced sound quality called Hearing Reality. It better replicates natural hearing to provide unprecedented sound quality.
Comfort and personalization redefined
Acuity Immersion Directionality
Putting a directional device on the ear has the unintended consequence of losing the natural benefit provided by the pinna. Acuity Immersion Directionality is designed to restore front-to-back cues for the patient creating a more natural, safer listening experience.
Having access to a broad frequency range is important to both sound quality and the ability to perceive where a sound is coming from. The CIC microphone location provides access to high frequency information. Translating this information into a region when the patient can hear provides for better hearing through improved sound quality and environmental awareness. (CIC only.)
Speech Indicators for Memory
The indicators played when the patient changes the memory have been numeric, requiring the patient to remember what environment the memory was optimized for. The memory indicator can now be programmed from a long list of frequent patient activities (i.e. restaurant, home) providing for an easier, patient experience.
Acuity Quiet takes Acuity Voice to the next level, by allowing it to process over a larger range of inputs which provides a high fidelity listening experience regardless of the level of background noise.
Expanded InSitu Audiometry
Providing a broader frequency response within Inspire software.
A more natural listening experience
Our new standard in ear-to-ear communication, Acuity Binaural Imaging features ultra high-definition audio to bring a more natural ear-to-ear experience to patients. Thanks to collaborative decision making, speech audibility can be preserved while simultaneously maintain comfort.
Listening enjoyment — once again
Today’s patients want to enjoy listening in every setting. Acuity Lifescape Analyzer, our most rigorously tested environmental detection system, makes it possible. Its seven sound classes handle multiple environments simultaneously and deliver our most sophisticated and accurate classification and adaptation system ever.
Our proprietary multi-segment compression architecture, Acuity Speech Optimization, combines speech audibility and overall comfort to achieve Starkey Sound.
Superior directional detection
Designed to improve speech detection in difficult listening environments, Acuity Directionality is intelligent and personalized to continually adapt in all channels, prioritizing conversations with up to 6dB of speech enhancement, so patients can better hear and participate in conversations from all directions.
Optimal audibility in noisy environments
Acuity Voice runs in parallel with Acuity Lifescape Analyzer to provide optimal audibility for speech. Its two-part algorithm uses dynamic voice identification, coupled with a spectral noise control that calculates appropriate gain on a per-channel basis, for unprecedented sound quality, ease of listening, and intelligibility of speech in noise.
Prescription for music
With our revolutionary Synergy platform and new Acuity OS 2, Music Enhancement is designed to enhance the way patients listen to music. This unique prescription focuses on music enjoyment, makes soft music sounds audible, can be fit easily to accommodate each patient’s subjective hearing tastes, adapts and improves music listening sound quality automatically.
Improved phone understanding
Our patient-preferred wireless system, 900sync, streams a caller’s voice to both ears with our new Ear-to-Ear Phone Streaming, making understanding on the phone easier than ever.
Superior feedback management
The only proactive feedback management system, our WhistleFree Feedback Cancellation anticipates feedback and can be personalized to product and patient.
Effortless connections with
streaming media and accessories
Our all-new SurfLink Mini Mobile and SurfLink Remote Microphone 2 with our reliable SurfLink Media 2, SurfLink Mobile 2 and SurfLink Remote offer patients carefree connectivity anytime, anywhere. The all-new SurfLink Mini Mobile is a small and affordable cell phone streaming solution. While our SurfLink Remote Microphone 2 is designed to stream audio directly to wireless Picasso hearing aids.
Enjoy every conversation
Engineered to enhance real-time audibility by identifying high-frequency speech cues and replicating them in lower frequencies, Speech Shift is unlike other technologies that apply frequency compression broadly. Picasso maintains these frequency relationships retaining sound quality while providing clarity for high-frequency speech.
Reliable, durable and hassle-free
Surface Nanoshield, our next generation moisture and wax repellent ensures reliability and durability. This nano-coating delivers excellent protection from water, wax and oils.
Personalized tinnitus relief
Our patent-pending Multiflex Tinnitus Technology is now standard on all product styles and technology levels. Designed with personalization and flexibility in mind, Multiflex Tinnitus Technology works as a wireless binaural system with synchronized user controls providing the best comfort and control.
