Starkey is one of the oldest of the North American manufacturers, and began it’s life as a hearing aid repair shop in the basement of its original owner, Bill Austin. Having tired of simply repairing them, he began developing circuits, (analog circuits at the time), and finding ways to fit them into shells that would fit directly into the canals of their users. Thus began the Starkey Hearing Aid company of Minnesota. They have developed a slightly different approach to their distribution than most manufacturers; they are a high pressure sales oriented manufacturer and rely on high pressure clinics to fit their products. This is not a reflection of their quality, Starkey spends as much on research as any other company and were among the first of the manufacturers to have a chip that allows us to connect to our hearing aids through our smartphones. They have a keen eye for what may become a trend and use that vision to create some amazing hearing instruments.
