The company has already shipped more than 1,000 units to professional musicians and early adopters who have helped evaluate and refine the design. According to Dave Olson, director of Starkey's consumer products division, "The response has been remarkable! It's now time to share our outstanding results with the rest of the music world."
Since 1973, the Starkey Hearing Foundation has promoted hearing awareness through the support of hearing research, education and charitable programs. Each year, the Foundation donates thousands of hearing aids to needy adults and children. In addition to philanthropic endeavors, the Foundation also sponsors industry-level public-awareness campaigns.
