Starkey Signature Series Hearing Aids

Starkey Signature Series Hearing Aids

Everybody wants to listen attentively to their family, friends, and the world around them clearly. However, not everyone feels at ease openly acknowledging their hearing loss.

Powered by the Genesis AI platform (plus some enhancements), with the Starkey Signature Series hearing aid range, you can benefit from both. 

Receiving crystal-clear, natural sound through advanced technology that seamlessly conceals within your ear, you can now enjoy...

The invisibility:  These hearing aids are virtually invisible, they sit comfortably inside your ear so no one knows you're wearing them.

Natural sound:  Neuro Sound Technology delivers sound similar to the brain's intention, so it remains clear and as natural as possible.

A snug fit:  Choose out of three custom-fit hearing aids that are bespoke fit to your ear shape and hearing loss.

Starkey Signature Series Hearing Aids

What's included in the Starkey Signature Series hearing aids?

Signature Series hearing aids are the 2nd generation of Genesis AI, with the addition of motion-based optimisation and automated Edge Mode+, they are Starkey's smallest devices yet. 

Launched in three non-wireless custom models (including a rechargeable CIC) and features Neuro Sound Technology.

Each model is IP68 rated, which means they are protected against moisture and debris.  They also offer Starkey's proven tinnitus technology and some impressive wearing times (more on model specifics further down the page).

In regards to the colours available, the CIC models come in six faceplate colours and five shell colours, whilst the IIC comes in six faceplate colours and one shell colour. 

This should mean there will be a style suited to most hearing loss levels and hearing needs.  Your audiologist will go through each style, the features, the benefits, and whether this range is the right fit for you.

Same Tech But Smaller

Powered by Genesis AI, what are the main benefits of its features?


Starkey Genesis AI brought an entirely new platform

Genesis AI featured a complete redesign, inside and out, including all-new hardware and an innovative chip known as the Starkey Neuro Processor.  This chip powers the Signature Series too.  Giving you 80 million adjustments per hour and a 20 dB improvement in dynamic range.

The inclusion of this chip marks Starkey's embrace of Deep Neural Network (DNN) technology which offers advanced learning capabilities for enhanced sound processing built into the hearing aid.

The Neuro Processor is the industry’s most advanced processor with speeds four times faster than previous processors and features six times more transistors allowing it to adapt to more situations than ever before.

Starkey Signature Series Hearing Aids

Starkey Signature Series Hearing Aid Main Features and Benefits

What's improved since Starkey Genesis AI?

Better Edge Mode+ and optimisation

Once activated, using an optional push button, Edge Mode+ now operates automatically.  It seamlessly transitions into a mode where it continuously scans, adapts, and optimises hearing based on changes in the surrounding listening environment. 

Giving you clearer speech and improved listening comfort.  However, please be aware that this feature is only available in the CIC models.

The incorporation of sensor technology within Genesis AI's technology now guides the hearing aid's adaptive directionality. This functionality operates in two ways:

Starkey Signature Series Hearing Aids

Environmental awareness

When you're moving, like walking or running, the Signatures series harnesses microphones first seen in Genesis AI, which switch to hear everything around you.  Thus, improving your awareness and listening experience.

Starkey's research found that this motion-based adjustment also reduces wind noise during activity, further improving Genesis AI's wind noise reduction by up to 35 dB.

Reduced feedback

Feedback triggered by the positioning of the hearing aid and small movements, such as chewing or adjusting glasses or a hat, are less likely to cause whistling sounds. In response to these actions, Starkey's feedback cancellation system becomes more assertive.

Other features include:  Transient Noise Reduction, Wind and Machine Adaptations, Music Enhancement, Auto Experience Manager, Feedback Cancellation, and Multiflex Tinnitus Pro.


The response to Genesis AI around the world has met and exceeded what we set out to do, but we aren’t stopping there.  With the introduction of Signature Series, the world’s first fully custom rechargeable hearing aid, and even better sound quality to Genesis AI, Starkey continues its drive to deliver the most intuitive, convenient, and patient-driven hearing products in the industry - further proving the best never rests.

Starkey Signature Hearing Aids

Are they worth it?


What do we think?

These custom hearing aids are non-wireless, which means that they don't include Bluetooth.  So you will miss out on streaming, pairing to accessories, and using Starkey's apps (and those healthable features, such as fall detection).  If discretion trumps connectivity and remote control of your hearing aids, then you will do very well with these. 

The rechargeable CIC will be a popular choice, for sheer convenience and portable charging but it's the size that will tempt those wanting to upgrade or switch from NHS to private.  After all, everyone wants to hear the world around them, but not everyone feels comfortable openly acknowledging their hearing challenges.

However, we think the wearers who have active lifestyles, enjoyed the healthable experience, and got a lot out of the apps (first seen in the Livio) might stick with the Genesis AI range.  On the other hand, you might not be looking for a hearing solution that has all the bells and whistles, or you live a quiet lifestyle, and might not use all the features - the Signature is worth considering.

Either way, ask an audiologist about all the features versus benefits of these solutions with your lifestyle, hearing loss, and other specifications in mind.  You should never pay for a device with features you will not use.

Common FAQs about Starkey Signature Series hearing aids

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.
