“Our team is committed to continuous improvement that allows us to serve our customers better than anyone else. Through the innovation of our products and the passion of our people, we truly deliver the best hearing experience possible,” said Starkey Chief Operating Officer Chris Hillman. “As the only American-owned hearing aid manufacturer, I am incredibly proud of the entire Starkey team for this recognition.”

Starkey recently released Evolv AI, that includes “the industry’s smallest 2.4 GHz CIC, which is packed with powerful technology.” Every single hour, for example, an Evolv AI hearing device automatically makes 55 million adjustments, according to the company, helping to create “an effortless hearing experience for users.” Evolv AI’s “always-on and always automatic approach delivers realistic and genuine sound quality in every environment.”

“My sincere thanks goes out to the entire Starkey family for your tireless work to help people hear better and live better, every day,” said Starkey President and CEO Brandon Sawalich. “Manufacturing has been at Starkey’s core from day one, and our team’s commitment to finding solutions to help those with hearing loss continues to amaze me. I am immensely proud of this award for that very reason.”
