Starkey Hearing Aids
Following the simple philosophy “Hear better. Live better,” and with the acquisition of the Starkey Labs earmold company in 1970, William Austin began to apply his expertise in hearing aid repair to the design and production of Starkey hearing aids.
Making use of an aggressive marketing strategy designed to target an elite market, Starkey became a world-renowned hearing aid manufacturer almost overnight.
Notable world leaders able to attest to the benefits of better hearing thanks to their Starkey hearing aids include five US presidents, two popes, Mother Teresa, and Nelson Mandela.
A commitment to making it possible to connect hearing aids to the iPhone allowed Starkey to further distinguish itself in the hearing aid manufacturing industry and led to breakthroughs in AI sound processing technology.

Processing Technology by Starkey
Starkey’s technological breakthrough in AI sound processing helped the company become a 21st-century leader in AI technology, which continues to grow in the pursuit of providing naturally clear sound processing.
An application of their AI innovations is its use in analyzing the acoustic environment as a person moves from one location to another, in order to detect changes and make automatic adjustments to the sound profile, and then deliver improved speech intelligibility to the hearing aid wearer.

“It’s not your fault if you have a hearing loss, and you deserve to hear without having to ask people to repeat everything to you.”
My family has a history of hearing difficulties, with my grandmother being born deaf and several of my aunts and uncles struggling with hearing as well.
“The results have been much better than I ever could have imagined.”
I was advised to get my hearing checked, but my first experience left me feeling like I was being sold a package of goods. That all changed when I met Dr. Nelson. He is a true professional who explained everything and answered all my concerns, which made me feel confident in his care.
“My worries were quickly alleviated when I visited West Coast Hearing & Balance Center.”
I was very concerned about how I would appear to other people if I were to need a hearing aid. Would they see me as old or disabled? And the thought of being dependent on something to hear was daunting.
