Starkey is proud to be working together with The Royal Canadian Legion
Starkey is much more than the hearing aids we produce. Starkey is an experience. One that doesn’t merely promise more, but delivers more: more communication, more participation and more opportunities to do what you love to do. That’s because, starting from day one, Starkey has operated under the single-minded purpose that “Hearing is our concern.” And it’s why, since day two, we’ve been committed to constantly improving the technology of hearing — and creating the best hearing aids possible.
Starkey is the hearing aid industry’s only North American owned and operated company. It has been since our inception in 1967. But hearing loss is a global problem. In 1984, founder Bill Austin started the Starkey Hearing Foundation. Based on the simple premise, “Alone we can’t do much. But, together we can change the world,” the Foundation has funded a worldwide outreach program called “So the World May Hear,” that has distributed nearly 1,000,000 hearing aids around the world to people in need. Your support allows us to deliver more than 100,000 hearing aids annually through more than 100 global hearing missions a year, in countries like Mexico, Malawi, Vietnam and Mozambique.
Each hearing life deserves very special treatment. It’s what we believe. It’s the reason why we treat every hearing aid fitting as a life-changing opportunity. Our network of Starkey hearing professionals, including audiologists, hearing aid specialists and ENT doctors, share this philosophy and each will work closely with you to help ensure you get the world’s best hearing solutions. This is something you will not find at a big box store and its what separates Starkey from the rest.
Starkey believes that independent practices provide state of the art products through highly qualified personnel. When you choose to improve your life through a journey of better hearing, make sure to visit a Starkey recommended clinic, and always insist on a Starkey product. Not only will you change your life; you’ll help change the lives of people around the world.
