There has been a meeting of the minds between iPhone giant Apple and Starkey Hearing Technologies, the largest manufacturer of hearing aids in the United States. The new HALO 2 Hearing Aid from Starkey is designed for use with iPhones, iPads, Apple watches, Apple TV as well as MacBook and iMac Computers. ANY audio from these devices can be “streamed” directly into a Patient’s hearing aids, and corrected to their hearing loss, even if the volume of the device is set to MUTE! Movies, Music, Videos, and phone calls now can be heard and enjoyed without increasing the volume to levels that disturb others… they are instead streamed in stereo to these amazing HALO 2 devices! “This has been a tremendous benefit to our Patients”, stated John Hoglund of Hoglund Family Hearing and Audiology Center. “Any Apple product fan who previously struggled with their devices due to impaired hearing, has been overjoyed with their results with HALO 2!” “This product launch has been one of the most FUN devices to work with”, John says, “just to see the pure JOY on people’s faces as they hear and UNDERSTAND the audio streaming from their phones and tablets!” “It truly is a GAME CHANGING breakthrough for our Patients!
HALO 2 Named One of the “Most Brilliant Product Designs of 2016!”
HALO 2 has been named a Best in Class Design by Inc. magazine in their third annual Iconic Design Awards! The Iconic Design Awards represent the best of this year’s consumer products made and sold in the U.S., and recognize the most innovative, creative, useful and magnificent designs. Designed to provide better hearing across life’s changing landscapes, Halo 2 was built with the industry’s first ever quad core twin compressor technology and a brand new operating system. This award solidifies Halo 2’s position as a revolutionary and sophisticated technological advancement.
Sleek and nonintrusive, HALO 2 is a product that wins by cramming a large amount of useful technology into a small space. “They’re not the clunky things we’re used to,” says Teran Evans Design Director of PepsiCo in the INC review. “They’re not trying to scream. They’re trying to be almost invisible.” The hearing aid isolates and enhances speech while dimming ambient noise. Too windy? Turn it down via an app on your phone. Need to tune in to low voices? Swipe your phone to turn the whispers up. A geolocator tag on the app remembers preferences for particular locations. The aids double as headphones-users can wirelessly play music or hear email and messages from their phones. The Starkey team designed them with input from musicians and hearing-aid wearers.
“I’m a sci-fi fan, so the bionic aspect is very appealing on its own. But when you consider that people who have trouble hearing can feel isolated, being able to better connect to the world around them via their phones is empowering technology.” — Jim Brett
Staying “connected” is very important to today’s “Tech-Savvy” Patients!
“Today we have so many wonderful services available through phones and tablets that allow us more communication and entertainment options than ever! Unfortunately, for the hearing impaired, the sound quality on these devices make them challenging and even frustrating to understand. Often, the only way to hear these devices is to increase the volume to a level that is disturbing to others, or to use ear buds that require removing their hearing aids”, states Patricia Hoglund BC-HIS, ACA who has spent over 30 years helping the hearing impaired.” Now with HALO 2 Patients can hear audio from Facebook, YouTube, Netflix, Pandora, Spotify, ITunes, Hulu, or any other entertainment services in both ears, with digital sound quality that is customized to your individual hearing prescription! Phone calls from your cell phone are now answered hands-free for your convenience and safety while driving!” As a member of the prestigious Starkey Hearing Alliance, Hoglund Family Hearing and Audiology Centers are your home for this revolutionary technology!
