STARKEY HALO 2 NAMED FINALIST FOR TEKNE AWARDS

Happy couple

The Minnesota High Tech Association (MHTA) has named Starkey Hearing Technologies as a finalist in the Healthcare-Established category for the 2016 Tekne Awards for our Halo 2 Made for iPhone hearing aids. This honor highlights the continued technological and innovative success of our Halo 2 hearing aids, which feature the industry’s first quad-core twin compressor technology.  

Designed to connect hearing aid wearers to the people and things they love most, Halo 2 is a true hearable that is revolutionizing how people hear and how hearing aids are perceived. Since its launch in March, Halo 2 has been honored for its innovative design and utilization of mobile technology to provide real-time lifestyle and health benefits by Inc. magazine, the American Business Association and the Spark Awards.

“Halo 2 is exactly what we hoped, a wireless hearing technology that changes the perception of hearing aids and how people hear,” said Senior Manager of Audiology Research Jason Galster. “It connects to everyday mobile devices — almost an extension of their phone or tablet — creating a personalized network of sound that’s under their control and infinitely customizable. This change in perception is motivating people to share their experience; public figures, like Daymond John, have opened up about wearing Halo 2 hearing aids, talking about the connectivity and custom features. When you hear this feedback often enough, you begin to accept the potential for this technology to alter how the public approaches hearing loss and hearing aids.”

Presented by the MHTA, the Tekne Awards annually recognize Minnesota’s best and brightest technology users and developers in innovation, development, education, commercialization, and management. A full list of finalists is available online here.

“Each year, MHTA seeks out companies and people leading the way in innovation in Minnesota,” said Margaret Anderson Kelliher, president, and CEO of MHTA. “These advancements are changing the way people all over the world live and work, and the Tekne Awards recognize those achievements.”
