BTE styles:  micro RIC 312, RIC 312, RIC R, BTE R, BTE 13 and PP BTE 13.

 

Starkey Evolv AI 1000 hearing aids - The sound and connectivity

The Starkey Evolv AI 1000 hearing aid is the introductory technology level in this hearing aid range, so you do lose quite a few of the platform features. 

This hearing aid launch also offers you Starkey's most advanced connectivity to date with better connection, improved Android connectivity to allow for greater sound, a greater level of audio streaming and the freedom to explore their accessories range.

 

Main features of Starkey Evolv AI 1000 hearing aids and what features you lose when compared to the Evolv AI 2400

 

Hearing Performance

  • Starkey Sound:  With around 55 million adjustments per hour, the Starkey Evolv AI hearing aid provides automatic, realistic and great sound in all environments.
  • 2-Way Audio (New for Evolv AI):  Evolv AI's microphones pick up and stream voices directly to your iPhone and iPad devices - giving you true hands-free convenience.  
  • Personalised Memories:  Create various bespoke memories or 'geo tag' your common environments like home and coffee shop.   So when you are in a similar environment, your hearing aids can adjust automatically to give you the best listening experience.

 

What you miss out on in this category

This performance level has 8 channels/bands and it doesn't include Voice AI, which is a speech enhancer for only iPhones and iPads and MultiFlex Tinnitus Technology.  With the Starkey Evolv AI 1000, you will have less reduction in noise within the Sound Manager.  Such as Wind in Noise, Machine in Noise etc.

You also miss out on the Edge Mode, so you won't be able to benefit from the accessing this feature to help you to hear even better in those challenging environments using the AI technology.

 

Healthable Technology

  • Activity Tracking:  You can record your steps taken, track movement and monitor your daily activities and exercise.  Keeping you moving and stimulated.
  • Engagement Tracking:  When you are actively listening this feature monitors and records the health benefits of wearing your hearing aids.
  • Fall Detector:  Recognises when you have fallen and sends a message to a designated person of the accident along with a GPS signal.  Giving peace of mind to your loved ones and giving you the help you need in real-time.

 

 Hearing Aid Assistant

  • TeleHealth:  This remote programming feature enables you to have the freedom of adjusting on the go.  You can also contact your audiologist to assist in remote adjustments when needed.
  • Tap Control:  Tap twice to activate Edge Mode, Thrive Assistant or to start/stop/pause streaming audio.  A quick and handy feature on the go.
  • Self Check:  Offers a brief rundown of your devices performance.  So you keep your hearing aids in optimum condition and the confidence you need knowing you will not run out of the power you need.
  • Reminders:  Offers schedule alerts and reminders for daily tasks, like when to take your medication.

 

What you miss out on in this category:  Translate, which helps you communicate better with others that speak a different language, the Transcribe feature that  enables verbal communication to be converted into text that can be then shared or saved and the Thrive Care app.

You will also miss out on the Thrive Assistant, which enables you to get fast answers to common questions or no Find my Phone feature.

Starkey Evolv AI Hearing Aids Range

AI Powered Hearing Aids

 

The Starkey Evolv AI hearing aid range launched towards the end of January 2022 - making this family their new flagship product.  This range also supersedes the Starkey Livio AI hearing aid range.

Evolv AI was designed to give wearers a complete device range to suit everyone, including a wireless CIC style hearing aid and four technology levels.  The BTE styles and custom products are available in both traditional and rechargeable battery options.

Along with advanced hearing technology, connectivity and adaptable personalisation you can also benefit from advanced automation. Starkey Evolv AI has the potential to enhance your hearing health and overall wellness.  But, what are the main features and benefits of Evolv AI? Let's find out...

 

Starkey Evolv AI Hearing Aids - Developing their wellness approach

This 'healthable' concept was first seen in Starkey's 2018 Livio AI hearing aid range, now Evolv AI's predecessor, and since then they have developed this wellness approach.  But, how does this help with your hearing and overall health?

This wellness approach reflects the continued research and development of the impacts hearing loss has on overall health.  If we put this into perspective, even older adults with mild hearing loss are almost tripling the risk of having a fall.  Unfortunately, statistics show that hearing loss can result in depression, cognitive decline and social withdrawal. 

The healthable technology within Evolv AI tackles these issues by helping those with hearing loss to simply hear better as well as offering the tools to put social stimulation and other activity goals in place.

 

Starkey holistic approach to better hearing helps:

 

Main Features of Starkey Evolv AI Hearing Aids

What's new, what's stayed and what's better?

 

Motion sensors are still a predominant feature

Starkey Evolv AI digital hearing aids, like those of the superseded Livio AI hearing aids, include motion sensors used to track and store data of your device usage and your actual movement.  This technology is smart enough to know when you have fallen and alerts someone out of your designated contact list of the accident and provides a GPS location.

There are other built in features within the device and the mobile app, like remote hearing care and language translations services, but what are the main improvements of the Evolv AI when compared to that of the Livio AI?

 

Starkey Evolv AI hearing aids vs Livio AI

 

Starkey Evolv AI Hearing Aid's Edge Mode

As we stated above, this feature has been improved upon since its predecessor.  It offers problem solving adjustments in real-time, based on the listening environment you are in.  How does this feature benefit you? 

Adjustments such as more gain or successful noise reduction ultimately leads to better clarity and comfort in sound.   We think this would be ideal in challenging environments on the go.  It is also conveniently fixed in this personalised setting until you manually change the settings or restart your hearing aids. 

 

Starkey Evolv AI Hearing Aids

A brief breakdown of features

 

Thrive Hearing Control - Compatible with both Android and iPhone mobiles

This is the mobile app that offers various settings and controls to make your hearing experience easier and more personable.  It also includes data about your hearing aids and how you use them as well as the ability to control volume, programs and equalisers. 

The app itself scores your wellness everyday based on your personal data out of 200.  The engagement score is broken down into hourly use, social interaction and environment.  To simplify this, if you find yourself in listening environments that are more challenging rather than quieter soundscapes during the day your wellness score will be higher.

The activity score is based on how often you stand, exercise and how many steps you have taken in your day.  There are obvious manipulations here, as not everyone can reach the default goal of 10,000 steps a day!

Why would this benefit you?  The main purpose of this app is to help you understand your activity and engagement better.  Setting your own wellness goals helps you to socialise more, be more active and keep your brain sharp.

 

TeleHear:  This is Starkey Evolv AI's remote fitting support within the Thrive app.  Using this you can book an appointment with your audiologist and partake in a remote video in the comfort of your own home.  Ideal if the logistics of getting to audiology appointments is an issue.

 

Thrive Assistant:  Use this feature in the Thrive app to set reminders, find your phone, change programs and more - your very own digital PA!  If you have a cloud account, you can also use it like you would Siri and Alexa and ask questions and search.

 

Translate:  You can choose a language to translate.  Ideal if you travel a lot or need translation resources for business trips, as there are around twenty seven languages available to access.  This is only available with the top technology level.

 

Connectivity and Streaming:  Whatever style you choose from, the Evolv AI hearing aid range will connect with iOS and Android devices and mobiles.  However, if you have an older smartphone, you might need an accessory.  The Thrive Hearing Control app runs on all versions of iOS 14 or 15 and for Android 7.0 and higher.

 

2-Way Audio:  With the Starkey Evolv AI hearing aids - the microphones pick up your voice and streams it directly back to your smartphone for true hands free calls without accessories.  This is only available with iPhones and iPads, not Android devices.

 

Tap Control:  This gives you more control of your hearing aids with just a double tap of your fingers.  You can stop/start/pause streaming, initiate voice commands in the top three technology levels, as well as accessing the Edge Mode - in just the top performance level.  However, you can't answer or reject calls from this feature.

 

Starkey Evolv AI Hearing Aids

What styles are available?

 

There are four technology levels in the Starkey Evolv AI hearing aid range.  These are:

 

Starkey Evolv AI Hearing Aid Accessories

 

What are the main accessories that are compatible with these hearing aids?

Mini Remote and Remote Mic+:  These will both improve your listening experience in challenging environments like conferences.

TV Streamer:  With this accessory you can stream audio from your TV straight to your hearing aids.  Providing a high level of sound quality that is easy to use and is compatible with digital and analogue sources.

Is this the best model for me?

If you are looking at this page then it is likely that an audiologist has suggested that you purchase this particular hearing aid, so is this the best model for you?

In general, any audiologist will always be recommending to you the model that best suits your needs. Here is a useful check list to make sure that is the case.

  • Audiologist level of knowledge. The audiologist you have seen will hopefully have a wide knowledge of all available hearing aids, however some will only be familiar with a small number of brands and therefore may not really be in a position to know which model is the best for you. It is OK to challenge their recommendation and ask them to justify why this particular brand is the one for you.
  • Do research. Read about the hearing aid that was recommended. Does it seem like it will suit your lifestyle? Does it have more or less features than you need? 
  • Be aware of sales targets. Many high street retailers have specific tie-ins to a particular manufacturer/brand. The hearing aid they have suggested may still be the correct one for you, but do your research so that you know why they might have recommended it.

If in doubt, feel free to give us a call. That's what we're here for.

Do I need one hearing aid or two?

If you have a significant hearing loss in both ears, you should be wearing two hearing aids. Here are the audiological reasons why:

Localisation. The brain decodes information from both ears and compares and contrasts them. By analysing the miniscule time delays as well as the difference in loudness of each sound reaching the ears, the person is able to accurately locate a sound source. Simply put, if you have better hearing on one side than the other, you can't accurately tell what direction sounds are coming from.

Less amplification required. A phenomena known as “binaural summation” means that the hearing aids can be set at a lower and more natural volume setting than than if you wore only one hearing aid.

Head shadow effect. High frequencies, the part of your hearing that gives clarity and meaning to speech sounds, cannot bend around your head. Only low frequencies can. Therefore if someone is talking on your unaided side you are likely to hear that they are speaking, but be unable to tell what they have said.

Noise reduction. The brain has it’s own built in noise reduction which is only really effective when it is receiving information from both ears. If only one ear is aided, even with the best hearing aid in the world, it will be difficult for you to hear in background noise as your brain is trying to retain all of the sounds (including background noise) rather than filtering it out.

Sound quality. We are designed to hear in stereo. Only hearing from one side sounds a lot less natural to us.

What are the benefits of rechargeable hearing aids?

For most people, the main benefit of a rechargeable hearing aid is simple convenience. We are used to plugging in our phones and other devices overnight for them to charge up. 

For anybody with poor dexterity or issues with their fingers, having a rechargeable aid makes a huge difference as normal hearing aid batteries are quite small and some people find them fiddly to change.

One downside is that if you forget to charge your hearing aid, then it is a problem that can't be instantly fixed. For most a 30 minute charge will get you at least two or three hours of hearing, but if you are the type of person who is likely to forget to plug them in regularly then you're probably better off with standard batteries.

Rechargeable aids are also a little bit bigger and are only available in behind the ear models.

Finally, just like with a mobile phone, the amount of charge you get on day one is not going to be the same as you get a few years down the line. Be sure to ask what the policy is with the manufacturer warranty when it comes to replacing the battery.

 

Are behind the ear aids better than in the ear aids?

For most people, the answer is yes. But it's never that simple.

The majority of hearing problems affect the high frequencies a lot more than the low ones. Therefore open fitting hearing aids sound a lot more natural and ones that block your ears up can make your own voice sound like you are talking with your head in a bucket. Therefore in-ear aids tend to be less natural.

However the true answer is we can't tell until we have had a look in your ears to assess the size of your ear canal, and until we have tested your hearing to see which frequencies are being affected.

People with wider ear canals tend to have more flexibility, also there are open fitting modular CIC hearing aids now that do not block your ears.

There is also the age old rule to consider, that a hearing aid will not help you if it's sat in the drawer gathering dust. If the only hearing aid you would be happy wearing is one that people can't see, then that's what you should get.

Most people can adapt to any type of hearing aid, as long as they know what to expect. Have an honest conversation with your audiologist as to what your needs are.

What are channels, and how many do I need?

Generally speaking, six or more. Unless it's none at all.

The number of channels a hearing aid has is often a simplistic way an audiologist will use to explain why one hearing aid is better than another, but channels are complex and it is really not that straightforward.

Hearing aids amplify sounds of different frequencies by different amounts. Most people have lost more high frequencies than low and therefore need more amplification in the high frequencies. The range of sounds you hear are split into frequency bands or channels and the hearing aids are set to provide the right amount of hearing at each frequency level.

Less than six channels and this cannot be done with much accuracy, so six is the magic number. However, a six channel aid is typically very basic with few other features and is suitable only for hearing a single speaker in a quiet room. The number of channels is not what you should be looking at, it's more the rest of the technology that comes with them.

As a final note, different manufacturers have different approaches. One method is not necessarily better than any other. For example some manufacturers have as many as 64 channels in their top aids. Most tend to have between 17 and 20. One manufacturer has no channels at all.

Do you offer hearing aid warranty?

The short answer is yes!  Hearing aids are easily lost, misplaced or damaged and typically are one of the most expensive personal possessions an individual can own. We offer hearing aid cover for £80 per year per aid.  Find out more here
