Hearing impairment may typically be associated with middle aged and elderly people, but it impacts people of all ages, which means that hearing aids need to appeal to people of different ages and demographics as well. The 'Halo,' a hearing aid system designed for Starkey Hearing Technologies by Karten Design, is not only sleek and subtle, but connects to an intuitive iOS app, allowing technologically savvy people to control their hearing aids through a familiar medium.

Halo works on all iOS devices, including iPhones, iPads, the iPod touch and even Macs. The hearing aid's app is synced with TruLink Hearing Control, a pre-existing app, allowing users to play phone calls, music, movies and any other device-based sounds through their Halo. The app also controls volume and tone settings so that consumers need not fiddle with their device every time they need to make adjustments.
