INTRODUCING


New styles deliver superior performance and durability in a wireless option.

Our wireless lineup just got better Starkey’s superior performing, easy-to-use wireless hearing aids have been a favorite of practitioners and patients since we launched them. Now, with the introduction of 3 Series, which includes two new patientdriven standard products, we’re making it even easier for you to personalize a solution that fits each patient perfectly.


3 Series is available with or without wireless capabilities

Patient driven, performance tested 3 Series includes a newly styled 312 RIC and 312 mini BTE that come packed with our industryleading performance features, offer all the unique benefits of our IRIS™ Technology – including Binaural Spatial Mapping and completely wireless programming/ media streaming – and introduce several new patient-driven extras.

Patients get the most advanced wireless technology in the latest ergonomic design.

• New switch gives users a simple, tactile way to control volume and change memory modes

• 312 mini BTE features redesigned thin tubes to ensure ideal positioning and comfort

• New ISO Compression provides more dynamic and personalized sound

• Available in two new patient-requested colors – Espresso and Black – as well as bright and standard colors (minus Pearl and Onyx)

• New SnapFit receivers offer easier receiver connection and ensure greater stability


NEW!

Life without limitations

SurfLink Mobile – The industry’s most unique and versatile cell phone solution, SurfLink Mobile uses our new JustTalk mode to enable true handsfree cell phone conversations (thanks to its ability to turn our wireless hearing aids into both phone receiver and microphone). But it’s also a breakthrough remote microphone, assistive listening

Powered by IRIS Technology, Starkey’s proprietary wireless platform, 3 Series connects seamlessly to all our innovative SurfLink accessories, enabling unprecedented control, convenience and personalization.

device, media streamer and hearing aid remote, too.

SurfLink Media – The industry’s first set-andforget media streaming solution, SurfLink Media connects to TVs, stereos and more to wirelessly stream audio to users’ hearing aids while enabling seamless room-to-room transitions.

SurfLink Programmer – Combined with IRIS Technology and Inspire® fitting software, SurfLink Programmer gives you the ultimate speed and flexibility in direct-to-hearing aid

SurfLink accessories make it easy for patients to connect wirelessly to their world.

SurfLink Remote – This handy remote lets patients adjust and control their wireless hearing aids with the push of a button.


ISO COMPRESSION

Just the newest of 3 Series’ peerless suite of performance features Speech is dynamic, ranging in levels from soft to loud. Whereas other approaches to wide dynamic range compression treat a majority of speech signal as a single unit, our new ISO Compression knows that each component of speech is valuable – and treats them as such. • Allows for independent control of soft, moderate and loud level speech • Makes soft speech sounds audible without affecting the compression characteristics applied to louder inputs

• Can discretely manage loud sounds while maintaining quality of lower level sounds • Offers a more personalized fitting approach to optimize the listening experience

Designed for patients to enjoy a more comfortable and personal listening experience.

Improve audibility the smart way If you’re still fitting patients with other frequency lowering technologies, then you haven’t tried Spectral iQ – the industry’s smartest way to restore audibility for patients with steeply sloping, high-frequency hearing loss.

This smart technology is designed to help patients hear high-frequency sounds like “s”s and “f”s and also women and children better.

Patients performed significantly better with Spectral iQ on at their preferred setting than with Spectral iQ off (p<0.001). Moving from their preferred setting to the maximum setting again showed significant improvements in word final consonant identification (p<0.05).

• Intelligently identifies high-frequency speech cues, then replicates them in lower frequencies • Features the broadest active bandwidth of any frequency lowering technology • Causes less distortion than other approaches due to preservation of spectral cues and harmonic relationships


Patients that struggle hearing speech in noisy environments will be excited about how Voice iQ2 can help.

VOICE iQ2

Precision has been perfected Our revolutionary noise reduction and speech preservation system, Voice iQ , 2

delivers proven results when it comes to helping hearing aid wearers overcome one of the biggest challenges they face – hearing in noise.

• Designed to significantly improve speech clarity even in the noisiest environments • Reduces listening effort and cognitive fatigue when used in tandem with InVision Directionality*

• Instantly applies variable noise adaptation in all channels between each pause within speech • Provides up to 20dB of noise reduction

BINAURAL SPATIAL MAPPING

Patients will enjoy a more natural 3D-like listening experience.

A more natural ear-to-ear protocol Coordinating the digital signal processing algorithms between a patient’s hearing aids is key to listening comfort. Other ear-to-ear protocols force synchronized hearing aid response to match the dominant input. Only Starkey’s proprietary Binaural Spatial Mapping system intelligently optimizes SNR settings based on estimates from both ears, even if it’s asymmetrical.

• Boosts the performance of our Acoustic Scene Analyzer, which includes InVision Directionality, AudioScapes and Voice iQ2 • Is designed to deliver maximum listening comfort and provide a more natural 3D-like sound • Minimizes patient’s perception of disparity and switching


SOUNDPOINT

Personalization leads to patient satisfaction

In field trials, nearly twice as many patients preferred their SoundPoint personalized clinician fitting over a clinician-only fitting.

• By interacting with the SoundPoint screen, patients can pinpoint the sound qualities and volume they prefer without impacting audibility

Take patient personalization to a whole new level with our revolutionary SoundPoint fitting tool. Perfect for every fitting, SoundPoint places subjective sound quality adjustment control in your patients’ hands, giving them a bigger sense of ownership of the results.

• Use it to reduce the amount of office visits required to arrive at subjectively acceptable settings2

• Research shows that outcomes are improved when patients are personally involved in the decision making process1

SoundPoint lets patients have a say in how their hearing aids sound.
