Starkey’s Livio Edge AI hearing aids use artificial intelligence to optimize for speech understanding, according to the company. With a double tap, Edge Mode “conducts an AI-based analysis of the acoustic environment and makes immediate adjustments.” As a Healthable hearing aid, it also helps allow users to take a “proactive approach to their health and wellness with brain and body activity tracking.” It tracks daily steps, measures movement, and monitors vigorous physical activity. It also monitors the brain-health benefits of wearing hearing aids by tracking active listening.
