Schmidt’s goal is to always offer our customers the best quality hearing aids for all lifestyles and budgets, while providing customer service that exceeds expectations. Because hearing aid features change over time, Schmidt’s always carries the newest technology from all of the major hearing manufacturers, including Starkey. Schmidt’s Optical and Hearing™ is pleased to announce that we now carry the new Starkey iQ hearing aid line based on virtual reality research. Starkey issued a press release on August 28, 2017 which in part was as follows:
MINNEAPOLIS – Starkey Hearing Technologies, one of the world’s leading hearing technology companies, is launching a new line of hearing aids based on the company’s cutting-edge research in virtual reality, advanced neuroscience, and audiology and signal processing. Designed to create a truly immersive hearing experience for patients, the iQ product lines include: Muse iQ, a complete line of technology wireless hearing aids; SoundLens Synergy iQ, a new invisible-in-the-canal hearing aid; Halo iQ, smartphone-compatible hearing aids; and the brand-new TruLink Remote.
Built with Starkey Hearing Technologies proven platform and operating system, the iQ technologies include a suite of new features that deliver the presence, clarity and personalization that patients have previously missed during the moments that matter most. Three of the most notable new features include:
- Better leveraging of microphone placement to aid with high frequency information for improved sound quality and sense of spacial awareness. This breakthrough technology has the potential to help patients relearn key acoustic brain cues to support clear speech, a sense of presence and spatial attention for vital connection to their environment.
- Better design helps to restore front to back cues for a more natural, safer listening experience.
- More reduction of noise in quiet environments, keeping quiet environments truly quiet like they are meant to be.
What does this all mean for people who wear the new iQ hearing aids? They will experience a more natural sound in all of their environments, more clarity and better localization of sounds to improve their hearing aid experience as well as the quality of their lives. They will also experience less circuit noise in quiet environments.
