Starkey and Vikings encourage Fans to Listen Carefully

Starkey Hearing Technologies is once again excited to partner with the Minnesota Vikings to encourage fans to "Listen Carefully" during the 2014 season! 

This season marks the first of two the team will play home games at the University of Minnesota’s TCF Bank Stadium while a new 65,000-seat stadium is being constructed. Despite moving out of the thunderous Metrodome and outdoors Vikings fans will be sure to get “The Bank” rocking and Starkey wants to make sure fans are taking the necessary precautions to protect their hearing.

As part of the partnership, earplugs will be distributed at all Vikings 2014 home games to promote ear safety during the games. In addition, Vikings players Greg Jennings and Adrian Peterson will support the partnership through radio spots and in-game video messaging.

Fans will also be encouraged to download Starkey Hearing Technologies’ new SoundCheck app to measure the noise levels at the TCF Bank Stadium during games.

SoundCheck is a free hearing screener and sound level meter application that allows users to measure the surrounding environmental noise level and to quickly evaluate their own hearing to determine if it is within a normal range.

The Sound Check App includes:

• Screening results displayed in an easy-to-understand format and option to obtain more detailed view to show results for specific areas of your hearing.

• Screening results are can be saved to track changes over time or for you to discuss further with a qualified hearing professional.  

• Noise Check can measure environmental noise levels and includes information about common sound levels.

Good luck to the Vikings as they embark on another exciting year of football!
