Congratulations to our friends over at Starkey, whose Halo 2 hearing aid won an Interactive Innovation Award for Wearable Tech at the South by Southwest Conference and Festival in Austin last week.

Launched in March of 2016, the Halo 2 continued the innovative line of “Made for iPhone” hearing aids; upgrading the both the compressor technology and installing a new operating system. This new hardware made it so the aid could process multiple sound sources at the same time, allowing for a more crisp and natural sound. It also added Starkey’s tinnitus technology for customized tinnitus relief.

Starkey released the TruLink app with the Halo 2 launch. TruLink connects with the aid through any Apple (or select Android) device, giving users an easy-to-use control app for their aids. The app gives users an easy way to adjust their levels as necessary and allows for customized geotagged locations that will automatically adjust levels at some of their most frequently visited environments.

The Wearable Tech awards was given “for the new hardware that revolutionizes the convenience, comfort, functionality, efficiency, and fashion of having a device literally ‘on you.’”. The Halo 2 was nominated for the award with four other finalists in the category, including companies like Samsung, Intel and Oakley.
