Muse: Made for Life
With Acuity Directionality and Speech Shift, Muse provides wearers with improved speech audibility in difficult listening situations. The ultra-fast Synergy Platform gives wearers faster transitions to adapt to new sounds, as well as settings that help the brain adjust to different sounds in the wearer’s environment. For music lovers, Muse offers special music listening functions, capturing the frequencies unique to music.
As with previous Starkey hearing aids, Muse is a wireless hearing aid. Through a wireless connection with SurfLink Mobile 2, Muse hearing aids provide wearers with streaming capabilities. SurfLink Mobile 2 is a hands-free cell phone transmitter, assistive listening device, media streamer, and heading aid remote all in one. Whether it is a phone call, music, or movies, Muse hearing aid wearers receive clear, unfettered sound directly from the source to their ears.
Muse hearing aids also offer features to provide comfortable listening, from distortion-free audio to comfort in loud noise to clarity for soft sounds. To address feedback, Muse offers feedback cancellation to eliminate buzzing and whistling sounds. Muse is covered in Surface NanoShield, to protect the aid’s electronic components from moisture and other debris. For those who experience tinnitus, Muse is equipped with Starkey’s Advanced Multiflex Tinnitus Technology.
Starkey’s Muse is available in the following styles: completely-in-canal, in-the-canal, in-the-ear, receiver-in-canal, and behind-the-ear.
Halo 2: Made for iPhone
The Halo 2, upgraded in 2016, builds upon the successes of the original Halo Made for iPhone hearing aid, which won the 2015 Edison Silver Award. The Halo 2 is designed to help wearers stay connected to the people and things they love most.
Utilizing the TruLink Hearing Control app, Halo 2 connects to the iPhone, as well as iPad, iPod touch, and Apple Watch. Through this connection, Halo 2 gives wearers a seamless listening experience through a special GPS feature. By activating the iPhone’s GPS, Halo 2 archives and then automatically adjusts to user’s preferences in different locations. Halo 2 also provides wearers with streaming capabilities, delivering FaceTime, phone calls, music, and other media from the iPhone to the Halo 2 with clarity.
Halo 2 offers improved speech recognition and directional features such as Acuity Directionality and Speech Shift. With SoundSpace on the TruLink app, wearers are able to make minor adjustments to sound quality in different listening environments. For music lovers, Halo 2 provides music listening features, adjustable through the TruLink app. Feedback is controlled with the feedback cancellation system, while people who experience tinnitus benefit from the Advanced Multiflex Tinnitus Technology.
Halo 2 is also compatible with select Android devices. The Halo 2 Made for iPhone is available in receiver-in-canal and behind-the-ear styles.
