“I would like to thank the Starkey team for its relentless pursuit of excellence,” said Starkey President and CEO Brandon Sawalich. “Your tireless work to push the boundaries of innovation continues to earn international recognition for outstanding achievements in design. Hearing aid wearers deserve the best in design, quality, and performance, and that is exactly what we are giving them.”  

According to Starkey, Evolv AI set the stage for an entirely new hearing ecosystem that not only emphasizes hearing’s impact on overall health and wellness but creates an effortless user experience. The hearing aids are built on Starkey Sound™ which is modeled after the human auditory system. Like the brain, Starkey Sound is designed to automatically suppress background noise and increase speech audibility and intelligibility with machine learning technology. The combination of these features creates an effortless hearing experience for users, says the company.
