Get excited! The new hearing aid technology 2019 will enjoy was released throughout the Winter of 2018 and Spring of 2019. I’m going to do a quick rundown of the highlights of these products and what makes them special, but to truly understand, you need to come in for a free demo! Maggie and I have had extensive product training on all of these products including a 3-day training program at Starkey headquarters in Eden Prairie, Minnesota. It is of the utmost importance to us that we are well versed on the newest technology available so that we can rise above our patient’s expectations. I’m touching on tech features below, but the most important quality in each of these devices is its ability to correct a hearing loss and provide excellent noise suppression. All of these products have improved significantly on both of these fronts to give us the best hearing improvement to date!
