Nothing says “Summertime, here we come!” like hitting the road, rails, trails, and friendly skies to make new memories with loved ones far and nearby. Whether having some local fun or taking a trip, here are six ways your hearing technology can help you dive in.
Look for the Loop
Touring a new city? Some sites — museums, theaters, houses of worship, and more — may have installed a hearing loop, letting you receive enhanced audio by wirelessly connecting through the T-coil setting on your hearing aid if it has been enabled. Look for the hearing-loop logo at participating spots.
Discover AudigyCertifiedIf you’re traveling well beyond your local area and are one of our patients, check with us to find an AudigyCertified practice near your destination. With those other hearing practices being AudigyCertified, you get the same quality hearing care you’ve come to expect from us. Now, that’s peace of mind.
“Cache” Up on AIThe future is here with artificial intelligence at your ears! You can monitor your physical and mental well-being with the Starkey Livio AI and its Thrive app. Some devices and apps even have a translation feature, letting you communicate with others even if you don’t know their local language.
Charge Into Some FunWhat’s worse than dead batteries? Not having spares when in need. Rather than worry about keeping extras on hand, consider the convenience of rechargeability. With many manufacturers offering rechargeable technology, you can live it up with the confidence of all-day hearing aid power.
Tune Up for TunesHearing tech is optimized for speech, but if live music is on your mind, we can nudge your settings to help you enjoy tunes without compromising how you hear speech. With some hearing aids, we can even make minor adjustments remotely via Starkey the Thrive app!
Bookmark Your FavesThrough selected apps, you can “bookmark” or geotag your hearing aid settings to your favorite locations — a happy-hour hangout, the gym, or a golfing spot, for example — so that the app automatically adjusts your technology to your listening preferences for that venue.
Make it a summer to remember with hearing technology that has your back every step of the way. For more on optimizing your devices or to experience a demo of the latest hearing aids, schedule a consultation with our expert team today!
