Starkey Announces Launch of New Lithium-Ion Rechargeable Hearing Aids

Starkey held their annual Expo event in Las Vegas recently, they take customers from around the world and treat them to three days off education, innovation and announcements about new products. As usual, this year was replete with all of those. One of the things that caught my eye was their announcement of a brand new rechargeable hearing aids model to their Muse IQ range. 

Meet The Muse IQr

Starkey Muse IQr rechargeable hearing aid

The device is a called the Muse IQr and it is based on their pretty attractive RIC. We don’t know much about the device right now but we do know it is based on a Lithium-Ion rechargeable power pack. This is a diversion from their approach so far. Their initial rechargeable hearing aid offering was based on the ZPower Silver-Zinc rechargeable hearing aid system. I said when the device was introduced that I thought it might be a stop-gap because they had been working on a wireless rechargeable system in collaboration with an Israeli company. But hey, it seems I was wrong but right? You can see the Muse IQr in the flesh as they say in the video below. 

As you can see from the picture above the devices have been made easy to charge by the advent of guiding magnets which allow easy insertion of the aids into the charger. Another thoughtful addition is a holder for a drying tab, if you are buying RICs, you need to be drying them. Including a simple holder in the recharging case for a drying tab is a nice bit of thought from the designers. 

As we hear more about these new rechargeable hearing aids, we will let you know.
