Question

What wireless platform does the new Livio AI and Livio hearing devices use?

Answer

Livio AI and Livio have a dual wireless platform.  Near Field Magnetic Induction (NFMI) for ear-to-ear functionality.  For wireless connectivity, 2.4 GHz is used.  

What forms of connectivity does the 2.4 GHz platform provide?

2.4 GHz is used for connection with mobile devices, like smart phones and tablets.  With Apple devices, the proprietary Apple protocol is also used to allow for direct streaming of phone calls and media.  Starkey also has a proprietary 2.4 GHz system for connection with wireless accessories.

What accessories are available for patients?

There is a TV streamer that can be paired with an infinite number of devices.  This is nice for families with multiple members that are hearing impaired. Or, for retirement communities with a TV room.  The TV signal is streamed directly to the Livio AI or Livio devices.

There is also the Remote Microphone+.  It can function as a companion mic with automatic omni and directional mic modes based on how it is positioned.  It can be paired to devices via Bluetooth, put into a Telecoil mode, connected to an FM system or plugged hardwired into a device.  On a full charge, it can stream for up to 10 hours with a range of about 65 feet.

Any other accessories?

There is also a remote control.  It gives full control over volume, memory selection, mute, home setting, and a multifunction button.  A nice feature is that the remote control has a 5-year battery that doesn’t need to be charged or replaced.
