Starkey Hearing Technologies prides itself on its rich 50-year history as an innovative manufacturer of hearing aid technology and solutions.  The company continually develops more discrete, easier, and better ways to hear. Starkey Hearing Technologies created the first in-canal hearing aid, as well as the first invisible, custom digital hearing aid. Starkey was also first to use nanotechnology in hearing aids, to waterproof hearing aids, and was the pioneer in solving the problem of hearing in noisy environments.

Why Starkey?

Starkey Hearing Instruments doesn’t develop new solutions only for the sake of innovation. Rather, the company is dedicated to providing wearers with the most personalized hearing solutions possible, with significant measureable improvements in each new design. Starkey listens to the needs of patients and providers when considering new features and innovations.

Known for early development and improvement upon its in-the-canal devices, Starkey develops various styles of hearing aids to fit the individual needs of its wearers. From feature packed RIC (Receiver-In-Ear) models, to high-powered BTE‘s (Behind-The-Ear), to CIC (Completely-In-Canal) and invisible options, Starkey has a history of including as many features and new technologies into each design as possible.

Invisible Products

Custom fit to each person, invisible hearing aids rest in the second bend of the ear canal, making them virtually undetectable to others. They are designed to be removed daily to promote good ear health.


Barely visible when worn, Receiver-in-Canal hearing aids (RIC) place the receiver (or speaker) inside the ear canal — connected to the power source by thin electrical wires. They provide a comfortable, open fit.


Completely-in-Canal hearing aids (CIC) are custom-made to fit completely in the ear canal. Only the tip of a small plastic “handle” shows outside the canal, which is used to insert and remove the instrument.


Behind-the-Ear hearing aids (BTE) are the world’s most common style, with the hearing technology housed in a casing that rests behind the ear. A clear plastic acoustical tube directs amplified sound into an earbud or a customised earmold that is fitted inside the ear canal.


Like invisible hearing aids, In-the-Canals (ITC) are custom-fit to your unique ear, but the faceplate shows in the outer portion of the first bend.


In-the-Ear hearing aids (ITE) are also custom molded uniquely for you and feature a faceplate that shows in the outer portion of your ear.


Featuring patent-pending technology, this comfortable, nearly invisible device is designed to deliver all-day tinnitus relief.

Hearing Amplifiers

Typically used as a starter device for people who aren’t sure they’re ready for hearing aids, these ready-to-wear hearing amplifiers work well with many levels of hearing loss, but don’t have the advanced features of hearing aids.
