Bournemouth-based audiologists, Key to Hearing, are delighted to introduce the Starkey Livio and Livio AI hearing aids. The Livio and Livio AI offer some of the most advanced technology and features on the market today and include rechargeable devices.

Crystal clear hearing, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing

Whether you’re at home or out and about, talking on the phone, watching TV or streaming music, Starkey’s HearingReality TM system offers a fantastic hearing experience and excellent feedback cancellation. In fact, Livio AI was recently given the top rating for reducing background noise in an independent study of premium hearing aids 1.

The devices also offer high quality Bluetooth connectivity and wireless streaming and are compatible with a wide range of Apple and Android devices.

What’s more, Livio and Livio AI both feature clever geotagging technology that senses when you’re in a certain place, like at home or work, and automatically adjusts your hearing aid settings to suit. Other shared features include easy adjustments with the Thrive Hearing Aid app, tinnitus relief and CROS technology for single-sided hearing loss.

Rechargeable technology you can trust

As sealed units, the rechargeable devices also offer great protection from dust, moisture and dirt. Both devices are amongst the smallest on the market and offer 24 hours of high quality hearing from just one charge. A portable charging pod is supplied with your hearing aids.

 

Livio AI – link your health with your hearing with Healthable

Whilst Livo is certainly advanced, Livio AI really takes things to the next level with its state of the art Healthable technology. This aims to give you a deeper understanding of the connection between your hearing and your overall health – for example, did you know that using hearing aids can improve or limit conditions such as dementia and cognitive decline 2?

Healthable technology works by using 3D motion sensors and the Thrive app to monitor how, when and where you use your hearing aids, and tracks your brain and body activity to give you a Wellness Score. The data collected by your Livio AI can then be integrated with other wellbeing apps such as Google Fit and Apple Health. This amazing device can even detect if you’ve had a fall and alert a relative or carer so they can help!

 

Livio AI’s other cutting-edge features include:
