Muse iQ is Starkey’s newest technology, designed to allow the user to feel more immersed or connected in a moment or situation by recognizing where sounds are coming from within their immediate surroundings.
This is accomplished through Starkey’s AcuityTM Immersion Directionality feature which:
- Improves hearing directionality for a more natural and safer listening experience
- Restores the natural benefits provided by the ear thereby improving speech audibility and spatial awareness
Spatial hearing is the capacity of the brain to simultaneously sense the direction of all sound sources around an individual and thus provide the feeling of connectedness. With the Acuity Immersion system, Muse iQ wearers have the ability to localize surrounding sounds and to reaffirm spatial awareness.
Muse iQ hearing aids are available in both custom-fit and standard styles, and the Muse iQ micro RIC 312t model includes a rechargeable option.

The Halo iQ is Starkey’s latest smartphone-compatible hearing aid, offering advanced noise reduction technology and precise directional microphones that help make speech easier to hear and sound more natural in today’s complicated and challenging listening environments.
Some of the major features of Halo iQ hearing aids consist of the following:
- Elimination of feedback, buzzing, and whistling
- Pristine sound quality and outstanding listening clarity
- More comfortable hearing/better understand of conversations in noise settings
- Streaming phone calls, music, and more directly from an iPhone to the hearing aids
Starkey’s Halo iQ smartphone-compatible hearing aids allow connectivity to several devices, including: iPhone, iPad®, iPod touch®, Apple Watch®, and select Android™ products, thus providing a wide range of options for users to enjoy the most natural audio experience yet.
The TruLink app (available only with Apple devices) allows wearers to make adjustments to meet their individual listening preferences in variety of diverse settings; and using Starkey’s newest wireless accessory, the TruLink Remote, individuals can control their Halo iQ hearing aids without having to go through their smartphone.
Starkey Soundlens Synergy iQ
Designed for people with mild to moderately severe hearing loss, the Starkey SoundLens Synergy iQ hearing aid is so tiny that it is almost imperceptible to an outside observer; this hearing aid rests comfortably deep inside the ear canal, such that only the wearer knows it is there.
Starkey SoundLens iQ invisible-in-the-canal hearing aids are custom-fit to the unique shape of the user’s ear canal and to meet their precise hearing needs, providing day-long comfort as well as pristine sound for immersive listening experiences.
Although it is the world’s smallest custom-fit hearing aid, the SoundLens Synergy iQ is the most advanced technology available in Starkey’s most popular invisible hearing solution; the SoundLens Synergy iQ offers a full range of advanced features, including the power and performance of Starkey Sound™, and the capacity to stream TV, music, and other media via its SurfLink wireless technology.
