iHearing Aids

Alexandria Otolaryngology Associates is extremely excited to announce that it is one of the first ENT clinics to offer Halo™, a made for iPhone hearing aid. Created by Starkey, a privately held, global hearing technology company headquartered in Eden Prairie, Minnesota, Halo is engineered to be compatible with all iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch devices.

With more than 26 million Americans are affected by untreated hearing loss, Starkey wanted to come up with a device that was easy-to-use and discrete. Halo combines Starkey’s superior hearing aid technology with Apple’s wildly popular operating system to deliver a revolutionary new hearing solution that makes every aspect of life better – from conversations to phone calls to listening to music. Halo pairs with your iDevice by connecting with the TruLink™ Hearing Control app, a free download in the App Store.

Together with the TruLink app, Halo enables your smartphone to:

  • Stream calls, FaceTime, music and more from your iPhone directly to your hearing aids through a Bluetooth connection.
  • Allow you to use your iPhone to control your hearing aid’s volume and settings.
  • Personalize sound settings to any environment and geotag that specific memory, so that your hearing aids will automatically adjust once you enter that location.
  • Deliver pristine sound and exceptional listening clarity.
  • Help you hear comfortably in noisy situations.


Don’t have an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch? That’s ok – Halo hearing aids are also stand-alone hearing aids packed with Starkey’s best-in-class performance features including feedback cancellation, adaptive noise management and directionality.

This hearing aid is simply fantastic, and it all has to do with the company creating it. Starkey is recognized for its innovative design, development and distribution of comprehensive digital hearing systems. Founded in 1967, Starkey currently employs more than 3,600 people, operates 21 facilities and conducts business in more than 100 markets worldwide.
