Starkey Hearing Technologies was founded in 1967 by William Austin. As the only privately held and American-owned company in the hearing aid industry, Starkey Hearing Technologies is recognized across the globe as a leading provider in hearing solutions.
The company created the industry’s first in-canal hearing aid and first custom, digital and fully programmable invisible hearing aid. Starkey also was the first to use nanotechnology in hearing aids, making hearing aids waterproof and to begin tackling the biggest challenge wearers have historically faced – hearing in noise.
Starkey’s brands include Audibel, MicroTech and NuEar. In recent years, the company has released Halo, a made for iPhone hearing aid and Xino Tinnitus to provide relief to people suffering from ringing in their ears.
