For the hearing impaired, the pandemic has created additional barriers to everyday life. Face masks reduce speech sounds and prevent the reading of lips. Starkey has recently released cutting-edge hearing aid technology that amplifies sound, even in the most challenging listening environments.

Using artificial intelligence, the Starkey Livio AI hearing aids suppress background noise and amplify the speech or sounds the user needs to hear. The smart hearing aids connect to smartphones via Bluetooth allowing the user to track body movements, translate speech, create safety alerts, accept and make phone calls, and more.
