Description

Hearing instruments have always had controls - buttons, switches, wheels, dials - for changing volume or switching programmed memories. But locating and using these small controls can represent a significant challenge for users, who are often forced to remove their hearing aid to make necessary adjustments.
Designers set out to address these difficulties, conceptualizing an adjustment mechanism that fits the needs of all users—including those who were previously unable to use hearing aid controls, such as those with physical impairment or young children. Inspired by the effective technology behind of Apple’s iPod Touch and iPhone, designers developed a simple, touch-activated interface that Starkey brought to life in its S-Series BTE with Sweep Technology- the first hearing aid to incorporate touch technology.
By creating a capacitive switch on the spine of the device, users can adjust the volume or switch modes with a simple sweep or touch and release of the control surface. This surface is 10 times larger than traditional volume controls, and 5 times larger than the traditional memory button, providing ultimate ease of use.
The S-Series combines smart, intuitive user technology with stunning design and aesthetics. Beautiful in the hand and invisible behind the ear, it uses advanced technology to revolutionize the hearing aid industry.
