In our previous holiday blog, we talked about how better hearing through hearing aids can help bring out the best in your holidays. But did you know there is a complement to your hearing aids that can get you more out of your hearing experience and simplify your life this holiday season? Think of it as an early present—the My Starkey hearing aid app.
My Starkey is the companion app for Genesis AI hearing aids. Designed with the help of hearing aid wearers, this free, easy-to-use app links your smartphone with your hearing aids to give you extra features that can make hearing and living more enjoyable.
Let’s explore the top six My Starkey app benefits you’ll love having at your fingertips this month.
1. Enjoy even more control over your hearing
Keep your hearing aids ready for anything, all season long.
Whether you’re shopping for gifts at the local mall or taking a break at your favorite cafe, My Starkey can help you maintain your best hearing with features that allow you to adjust your hearing aid settings plus customize them for places you frequent.
Lose a hearing aid on the way to cookie exchange? You even have control over your hearing aid whereabouts—thanks to Find My Hearing Aids, a My Starkey feature that can track down your device(s) in just a few taps.
2. Get hearing help on-demand
Even the best holiday gatherings have moments when voices or music suddenly become a little too festive (i.e., loud). Thankfully, there’s Edge Mode+.
This app feature helps you hear during tricky listening situations you can’t predict by using Artificial Intelligence (AI) to reduce background noise and make speech clearer on demand.
Extra carolers? Jolly guests? Bring ‘em on, you got this.
3. Stay organized and on schedule
Why bother making a list and checking it twice when you can create reminders and stream them through your hearing aids?
With My Starkey, you can establish reminders to prompt you of important dates, like dentist appointments and jingle-bell balls. Or key tasks, from taking medication to buying stocking stuffers.
Getting your to-dos scheduled and done means more time spent with loved ones.
4. Ease up with remote hearing appointments
So, you want to maintain your hearing health but the weather outside is frightful? Or perhaps you’d prefer one less place to go during this busy month? No problem.
With the convenient TeleHear app feature, you can meet with your hearing care professional remotely and get hearing aid adjustments made from the comfort of your home.
Or you may save yourself an appointment altogether with Self Check. Run this My Starkey app feature to identify specific electronic component issues with your hearing aids and potentially resolve them at your fingertips. No appointments with your provider needed.
5. Lower stress with personal health monitoring
Performing physical activities is a great way to ward off stress, which could be especially helpful during the holidays, right? Well, this app is with you every step of the way.
My Starkey helps motivate you to stay active and feel good, with the ability to count your steps and track physical activities (like a Fitbit) plus monitor your daily hearing and social engagement (which also supports your cognitive health).
Moreover, you can easily set goals for hearing or movement—so make those shopping jaunts and festive parties count.
My Starkey also delivers the gift of peace of mind for you and everyone on your list, with the capability to help detect if you fall and notify people you choose. So, you can stay safe while active—regardless of whether there’s a winter wonderland outside your door.
6. Personalize your hearing with streaming
How handy would it be to stream calls hands-free to your hearing aids, as you deck your halls? Or to satisfy your seasonal routine of streaming recipe videos—or merry music while you work out—again, right to your hearing aids? With My Starkey, you can.
Use this app to seamlessly stream calls, music, video, audio, and more to your devices, and adjust volume and equalizer settings while you’re at it.
Your merriment, your way.
