Better hearing
is right here,
right now.
Just as no two people are alike, no two
patients’ hearing losses are the same.
Now, with the addition of our full lineup
of Wi Series custom styles to complement
our popular RIC 13 and RIC 312, creating
a personalized experience and one-of-akind solution for each and every patient
has never been easier.
Patients come to you seeking a hearing
solution that fits them perfectly. Offer them
the best with Wi Series wireless hearing aids.
Already a proven favorite with clinicians
and patients, we’ve enhanced our Wi Series

SurfLink Media provides patients with the first
set-and-forget media streaming solution.
Give patients control over their Wi Series hearing
aids with our SurfLink Remote.
•Streams stereo sound directly
from media devices to the
patient’s hearing aids without
the need for pairing or bodyworn relay devices
•Lets patients make memory and
volume adjustments, mute their
hearing instruments, or go in
and out of streaming mode
•Uses Intelligent Media Mobility
to allow seamless room-toroom transitions between
media devices
•Enables multiple people
wearing Wi Series hearing aids
to connect to a single device
•Eliminates audio delay and lipsync issues* commonly found
with other wireless systems
•Helps prevent patients and
companions from fighting
over the volume
*Latency is unnoticeable according to International Telecommunications Union standards.
•Provides unprecedented
control and convenience for
custom products – including
our Secret Ear CIC
•Activates iQ Boost, which allows
patients to enable aggressive
noise reduction while optimizing
sound quality in extremely
noisy situations
In 2010, Starkey tackled hearing in noise with Voice iQ, our revolutionary
noise reduction and speech preservation system. Now, with Voice iQ2,
we’ve nearly doubled the noise reduction capability while still maintaining
speech. Continually perfected at our acclaimed research center in Berkeley,
California and in real-world clinical trials, Voice iQ2:
•Is designed to help patients
focus on the sounds they
want to hear by reducing
the sounds they don’t
•Reduces listening effort
and cognitive fatigue
when used in tandem with
InVision Directionality*
•Instantly applies variable
noise adaptation in all channels
between each pause
•Provides up to 20dB
of noise reduction

and noise reduction. Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing
Research, 52, 1230-1240.
Coordinating the digital signal processing algorithms between a patient’s
hearing aids is key to listening comfort. Whereas other ear-to-ear protocols
force synchronized hearing aid response to match the dominant input,
Starkey’s proprietary Binaural Spatial Mapping system intelligently
optimizes SNR settings based on estimates from both ears, even if
it’s asymmetrical. As a result, Binaural Spatial Mapping:
•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

We’ve forever raised the bar on frequency lowering technologies
with Spectral iQ. The industry’s smartest way to restore audibility for
patients with steeply sloping, high-frequency hearing loss, Spectral iQ:

•Does not limit high-frequency bandwidth,
which competing technologies do
•Maintains important frequency relationships,
retaining the sound quality that comes from
harmonic distribution, while restoring highfrequency speech audibility for patients that
may have previously been considered
unaidable
•Is better able to identify speech sounds
with high-frequency components such
as “s” while not affecting other already
audible speech sounds
Data is from a 2011 Starkey Clinical Trial.

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).
An engaged patient is a satisfied patient – and our revolutionary SoundPoint
fitting tool takes patient interaction to a whole new level. Perfect for every
fitting, SoundPoint places subjective sound quality adjustment control in
your patients’ hands, giving them a bigger sense of ownership of their fitting.
