MINNEAPOLIS (February 5, 2018) — Starkey® Hearing Technologies, one of the world’s leading innovators in hearing technology, continues to reimagine and revolutionize the patient experience with the new Muse iQ Rechargeable, the smartest rechargeable hearing aid on the market. Muse iQ Rechargeable was announced Jan. 4 at Starkey’s Hearing Innovation Expo in Las Vegas and is now available to consumers through Starkey’s vast global network of hearing professionals and audiologists.

Designed for modern ease and convenience, the new Muse iQ Rechargeable 900sync™ technology-enabled wireless hearing aid is Starkey’s smallest over-the-ear hearing aid to date providing high-definition sound, clarity and presence.

Built on Starkey’s award-winning Synergy® platform and revolutionary Acuity™ OS operating system, the Muse iQ Rechargeable offers best-in-class features including:

  • 30 hours of use with streaming 
  • Fast, full-day charging in less than three hours 
  • A convenient, transportable charging case for rapid 15-minute and “weekend” charges
  • Telecoil
  • A CROS rechargeable system for individuals with single-sided hearing loss

Finally, unlike other major brand lithium-ion rechargeable hearing aids, the Muse iQ Rechargeable is the only one to offer a user-friendly on/off rocker switch for grab-and-go simplicity.

“Muse iQ Rechargeable is a true game-changer for consumers with hearing loss,” said Achin Bhowmik, Starkey Hearing Technologies Chief Technology Officer and EVP of Engineering. “These tiny but powerful devices redefine rechargeable hearing technology and represent Starkey’s advanced research in neuroscience, virtual reality, audiology and signal processing. With Muse iQ, we are honored to be able to deliver unparalleled performance, usability, personalization, clarity of sound and presence, and an array of other features that contribute to improved hearing health and overall well-being.”
