The Starkey Hearing Amplifier might seem like a traditional hearing aid on paper, but the device is designed to be much more discreet. Specially engineered as an entry-level assistance device, the amplifier is nearly undetectable in most ears, which means no one will recognize it's presence. The easily removed design aesthetic of the device can be placed in and out of the ear without having to struggle with affixing it to the ear canal.
As consumer populations such as Boomers begin to grow older, effective, discreet devices that enable a bit of help like the Starkey Hearing Amplifier will likely become more popular. They speak to a need for digital health integration for those who might not be quite ready for a traditional hearing device just yet.
