3 Series is packed with our industry-leading performance features including the unique benefits of IRIS Technology — Binaural Spatial Mapping and completely wireless programming/media streaming.
Taking advantage of 3 Series’ open architecture, the BluWave 3.0 operating system provides the foundation to concurrently run other applications necessary to eliminate noisy artifacts while characterizing the frequency and intensity of input sources. By providing more accurate control of critical hearing aid parameters, BluWave 3.0 has enabled enhancements to many of our already leading performance features – giving 3 Series hearing aids the ability to more naturally eliminate feedback, deliver optimal performance in noise, and better manage power, telephone performance, directional hearing and data.
Our newest version of our revolutionary noise reduction and speech preservation system, Voice iQ applies variable noise adaptation faster than ever before, providing improved speech clarity, even in the noisiest environments.
* Works in tandem with InVision Directionality to reduce listening effort and cognitive fatigue
* Instantly applies variable noise adaptation in all channels between each pause within speech
* Provides up to 20dB of noise reduction
InVision Directionality has been enhanced to provide smooth and accurate transitions in every environment using dynamic directional switching.
BINAURAL SPATIAL MAPPING (wireless only)
Coordinating the digital signal processing algorithms between a patient's hearing aids is key to listening comfort. Other ear-to-ear protocols force synchronized hearing aid response to match the dominant input. Only Starkey's Binaural Spatial Mapping system intelligently optimizes SNR settings based on estimates from both ears, even if they are asymmetrical.
* Boosts the performance of our Acoustic Scene Analyzer, which includes InVision Directionality, AudioScapes and Voice iQ
* Is designed to deliver maximum listening comfort and provide a more natural 3D-like sound
* Minimizes patient's perception of disparity and switching
SYNCHRONIZED USER ADJUSTMENTS (wireless only)
Clinicians can program a single aid to adjust volume or memory for both — eliminating the need to manually change two instruments. Additionally, Binaural Telephone Mode automatically places the phone-side hearing aid to Automatic Telephone Response or Telecoil mode while attenuating the off-side hearing aid.
A smart solution for patients who have steeply sloping, high-frequency hearing loss, our new frequency lowering technology, Spectral iQ, is designed to enhance real-time audibility by intelligently identifying high-frequency speech cues, then replicating them in lower frequencies. This allows 3 Series to maintain important frequency relationships, retaining the sound quality that comes from harmonic distribution while providing audibility for high-frequency speech cues for patients that may have previously been considered unaidable.
We've updated our signal processing architecture to enhance the overall sound quality and efficiency of 3 Series, including new vent modeling, automatic vent detection, improved compression and updated e-STAT targets.
Allows for independent control of soft, moderate and loud level speech, to deliver a more optimized listening experience.
Ideal for wearers with dexterity challenges, this “raised” switch on our standard products makes it easy to control volume and change memories.
IQ BOOST (wireless only)
Activated via SurfLink Remote, our iQ Boost feature allows patients to enable aggressive noise reduction while optimizing sound quality in extremely noisy situations.
Thanks to Self Learning, 3 Series gradually and automatically learns patient volume control preferences in each active memory, which helps reduce the number of manual control adjustments the patient needs to make.
Our Swap Fit fitting function allows you to transfer patient settings from their current Starkey product to a new one — enabling more time for fine tuning and counseling.
PUREWAVE FEEDBACK ELIMINATOR
A new initialization protocol provides a more natural approach to combat feedback, identifying, classifying and eliminating annoying whistling and buzzing in all environments. And with 28dB of added stable gain, patients experience feedback-free and comfortable listening no matter what they’re doing.
We added advanced oleophobic properties to our HydraShield nanocoating to better protect 3 Series hearing aids from earwax and other oily substances. The result is HydraShield, a new oleophobic nanocoating that, combined with 3 Series' unibody construction and smart component placement, makes them more reliable and durable than ever before.
ACOUSTIC SCENE ANALYZER
Based on clinical performance measures and patient-proven results, our industry-leading directional system is designed to perform best in highly complex backgrounds of noise.
