3 Series includes three styles that come packed with our industry-leading performance features, offer all the unique benefits of our IRIS™ Technology — including Binaural Spatial Mapping and completely wireless programming / media streaming — and introduce several new patient-driven extras:
With Voice iQ², we've nearly doubled the noise reduction capability of our leading noise reduction and speech preservation system while still maintaining speech. Voice iQ²:
IRIS™ Technology leverages a unique ear-to-ear communication protocol. Binaural Spatial Mapping applies the combined speed and power of multiple dual-core platforms to achieve parallel processing benefits. This protocol queries, analyzes and maps the acoustic space surrounding the patient, applying the appropriate signal processing strategy for directionality and noise management. Binaural Spatial Mapping can only be accomplished with inputs from two hearing aids, and is designed to:
Clinicians can program a single aid to adjust volume or memory for both — eliminating the need to manually change two instruments. Additionally, Binaural Telephone Mode automatically places the phone-side hearing aid to Automatic Telephone Response or Telecoil mode while attenuating the off-side hearing aid.Only available in wireless products.
A smart solution for patients who have steeply sloping, high-frequency hearing loss, our new frequency lowering technology, Spectral iQ, is designed to enhance real-time audibility by intelligently identifying high-frequency speech cues, then replicating them in lower frequencies. This allows 3 Series to maintain important frequency relationships, retaining the sound quality that comes from harmonic distribution while providing audibility for high-frequency speech cues for patients that may have previously been considered unaidable.
We've updated our signal processing architecture to enhance the overall sound quality and efficiency of 3 Series, including new vent modeling, automatic vent detection, improved compression and updated e-STAT® targets.
Allows for independent control of soft, moderate and loud level speech, to deliver a more optimized listening experience.
Ideal for wearers with dexterity challenges, this "raised" switch makes it easy to control volume and change memories.
Activated via SurfLink® Remote, our iQ Boost feature allows patients to enable aggressive noise reduction while optimizing sound quality in extremely noisy situations.
Thanks to Self Learning, 3 Series gradually and automatically learns patient volume control preferences in each active memory, which helps reduce the number of manual control adjustments the patient needs to make.
Our Swap Fit fitting function allows you to transfer patient settings from their current Starkey product to a new one — enabling more time for fine tuning and counseling.
This leading technology ensures wide fitting ranges and a fast response to more complex feedback. With up to 28dB of added stable gain*, PureWave Feedback Eliminator makes open ear fittings an option for more patients than ever before.* Hearing Review, Oct. 2010
We added advanced oleophobic properties to our HydraShield nanocoating to better protect 3 Series standard hearing aids from earwax and other oily substances. The result is HydraShield2, a new oleophobic nanocoating that, combined with 3 Series' unibody construction and smart component placement, makes them more reliable and durable than ever before.
Based on clinical performance measures and patient-proven results, our industry-leading directional system is designed to perform best in highly complex backgrounds of noise.
