Description

The S Series Behind The Ear (BTE) hearing aid with Sweep™ Technology, from Starkey Laboratories, combines polished style with advanced technology, bringing the same touch-activated capacitance technology used in the iPod to the hearing aid industry for the first time.


By using the touch surface located on the spine of the device, users can adjust the volume or switch modes with a simple sweep or touch and release. 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 device features a smooth, sculpted profile and uses a palette of six high-gloss metallic colors that mimic the variance and translucency of natural hair and skin tones. Both stylish and sophisticated, the S Series eliminates the stigma associated with traditional bulky beige devices, and shifts the perception of hearing aids from a medical necessity to a luxury accessory.
