“I want to offer my thanks and congratulations to the entire Starkey team for helping us achieve this tremendous recognition,” said Starkey President and CEO Brandon Sawalich. “Receiving this honor from the design community is a tribute to the amount of research and development we devote to producing high-quality, innovative, custom hearing aids. I look forward to continuing to provide our hearing healthcare professionals with the best products on the market, because in many ways, we’re just getting started.”
Starkey’s full line of hearing aids, Evolv AI, sets 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, “a groundbreaking technology created by years of refining Starkey’s research and science-based algorithms to power high-fidelity audio, 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.” Evolv AI’s always on and always automatic approach helps deliver “realistic and genuine sound quality in every environment, without the need to do anything extra.”
“Starkey’s cutting-edge technology continues to earn recognition for excellence, both inside and outside of the hearing industry,” said Chief Technology Officer Achin Bhowmik, PhD. “Evolv AI is more than just an attractive product. It embodies a stunning architecture that packs advanced technologies into ergonomic designs, which creates a smaller, more powerful device. Those with hearing loss deserve the best in design, quality, and performance, and that is exactly what we are giving them.”
