Starkey has joined the Bluetooth craze with its introduction of Wi, the new product line designed to eliminate whistling, provide improved understanding in background noise, and stream audio from televisions, radio and computers wirelessly to your hearing aids.
The Wi series works in conjunction with the Starkey SurfLink Media streamer, which Starkey touts as a “set it and forget it” wireless transmitter that you simply plug into your TV or other audio devices with no need for a pairing procedure to the hearing aids. Once the device is plugged in, you can simply enjoy unrivaled sound quality sent directly to your hearing aids. Transitioning of the connection to another audio device is simple; just move to the room with another SurfLink and the devices will connect automatically for you! Now your friends and family members can enjoy listening to television at their comfort level while you have access to the volume necessary for you and your hearing loss.
The Wi series is available in two receiver in the ear styles, both Standard and Absolute Power; providing your hearing healthcare professional more flexibility to better fit your hearing loss. In addition, for those who prefer having control over their hearing aids, the Wi series comes with an optional SurfLink remote control which provides access to volume and program changes in the hearing aids.
To determine if the Starkey Wi series is right for you, make an appointment with your local hearing healthcare provider.
