Starkey Evolv AI Hearing Aid Technology

The Evolv platform integrates Hearing Performance, Healthable technology, and Information Assistance. Evolv can make up to 55 million automatic adjustments an hour, ensuring the best possible hearing in challenging listening environments.

Hearing Reality Pro analyses and understands the listening environment, using binaural signal processing and adaptive microphone directionality to adjust the hearing aids. This gives the best possible hearing in any listening environment.

Starkey Evol AI Edge mode is now available in the top three technology levels. When activated, Edge Mode uses artificial intelligence to scan the listening environment and make real-time adjustments to maximise speech understanding.

The hearing aids have a dedicated adjustable music compressor for an enhanced and enjoyable music-listening experience.

Starkey Evolv AI can use voice-activated commands. This means you can change the hearing aid programme by simply speaking.

The updated Starkey Thrive App introduces Thrive Care, which allows carers and family members to monitor the user’s hearing aid use and health. Thrive care includes fall alerts and brain and body tracking. The Thrive app also allows users to fine-tune their hearing aids and is the gateway for Telehealth—remote hearing care.

Starkey Evolv AI includes a rechargeable custom in-the-ear (ITC, ITE) hearing aid. These wireless devices allow for audio streaming from mobiles. The battery will last a full day with up to 4 hours of streaming.

Starkey Evolv – mobiles and Thrive app

 Starkey Thrive App

The Thrive Hearing Control app gives users complete control over their hearing aids using their smartphones. The app allows users to adjust volume, switch memories, and fine-tune their hearing aids.

The Thrive app also contains assistive features –  Find My Phone, Translate, Transcribe and Self Check, which lets you check your hearing aid performance without an office visit.
