Starkey Halo 2
“Made for iPhone” Hearing Aids

Starkey’s Halo 2 “Made for iPhone” hearing aid won the Silver Edison Award in April 2015. The Halo 2 hearing aid uses the TruLink App to connect to iPhone and other similar Apple devices (iPod touch, Apple Watch, iPad). This connectivity increases accessibility for hearing aid wearers in many ways. In challenging noise situations, the iPhone may be used as a microphone that amplifies sounds users want to hear. Additionally, phone calls, music, and other media are streamed directly from the iPhone to the hearing aid. The Halo 2 model is also equipped with a GPS feature that memorizes the wearer’s preferences in a given location and will automatically switch to the preferred program when the wearer returns to that same spot. This provides wearers with a seamless listening experience. Halo 2 is designed with feedback reduction, noise reduction, and directional microphones with give wearers the most comfortable listening experience.
