hearing aid or corrector is a technical medical
device designed to allveiate hearing damage and
to aid hearing loss. There are many and numerous
styles, types and shapes of hearing instruments.
majority of new ranges are designed exclusively
for individual loss, that is they are custom made
to suit. At St. John's we provide a large range
of earing aids to match each particular hearing
loss with the most appropriate hearing device.

John's provides the entire Starkey line of hearing
An ITC aid rests more deeply within the ear canal.
Starkey's most popular hearing instrument maximises
the ear's sound gathering design in a convenient
size. ITC instruments offer the right combination
of appearance and affordibility to meet a variety
of hearing losses. The ITC range includes ,
An ITE sits neatly inside the ear canal. Starkey's
most flexible hearing instrument allows for a variety
of performance options that would have previously
required a larger instrument.
Sequel and DiRx are some of the most popular custom
made products. The Sirrus programmable covers losses
up to severe. Sequel analogue products provide exceptionally
low distortion, delivering a clean, crisp sound.
Both Sirrus and Sequel are available in all custom
inner ear is extraordinarily sensitive to
the tiniest differences in sound loudness
and pitch. To recreate this, Aries II digital
sound processor divides incoming sounds into
more narrower sounds - nine in all - each
with its own very precise adjustment capabilities.
nine channels work with circuitry that reacts
instantaneously to sudden changes in sound
levels and an exclusive technology to prevent
over-amplification of soft sounds and noise
in quiet surroundings. Aries II provides a
more realistic and natural sound quality.

mean sacrificing discreet appearances. Thanks
to advances in Starkey design and manufacturing,
Aries II is available in all sizes - including
the virtually invisible CIC.
the latest breakthroughs in Digital hearing
science, Doviri is designed and engineered
to help you rediscover the joy of hearing.
Utilising the most advanced, 100% digital
signal processing (DSP) design, Doviri preserves
and delivers an increased dynamic range in
both high and low ranges.
more, Doviri is the only fully programmable
digital hearing system that offers both a
custom filter system with truly independent
multi-channel compression. Because of the
way your instruments respond to low and high
frequency sounds, loud sounds are less likely
to become uncomfortable while soft sounds
can be understood.
also features a multi step feedback management
algorithm which first senses the probability
of feedback before it can begin forming. Sophisticated
filtration is then automatically programmed
into your instrument to prevent feedback's
onset - even if volume is increased.
fitting of your digital BTE is important -
why compromise your fitting with inadequate
DigiMold, the new digital friendly earmould
is now available. Blending supreme comfort
and superior acoustic coupling properties,
each DigiMold is handcrafted to discreetly
blend with the users ear.
precisely sculptured nature of DigiMold significantly
reduces the necessity of activating any on-board
feedback management algorithm, thereby improving
speech recognition by preserving necessary
is a partnership between clinicians and the
Starkey Earmould Facilities. Clinicians must
follow a well defined, disciplined approach
to securing an accurate replica of the patients'
ear together with a thorough audiogram. Once
this is achieved, Starkey have perfected a
process of earmould manufacture, that guarantees
an appropriate fitting earpiece with built-in
flexibility for fine tuning of the hearing
instrument complimentary to the fitting software.
common complaint of many hearing aid users
is the inability to understand speech in a
noisy environment. Currently the only solution
to this problem is to improve the signal-to-noise
ratio (SNR) available to the user. Directional
technology is the single most effective strategy
available to improve speech recognition in
noise and reverberation by emphasising sounds
in the forward direction more than sounds
from the sides and behind. In other words,
improving the SNR.
is the first dual-microphone system engineered
for custom full-shell and half-shell hearing
instruments. The smaller, flexible design
of DiRx incorporates two matched omnidirectional
microphones in conjunction with Digitally
Optimized Directionality. The two microphones
are digitally tuned to match the microphone
circuitry of each pair, providing optimal
directivity for each DiRx system. This means
the user will benefit from the improvement
in directionality without compromising gain
or sound quality.

Sequel offers an excellent listening experience
immediately, and comes in all sizes from BTE
to CIC. Totally flexible for your lifestyle
needs and combining technology and size is
the Sequel CIC, (completely-in-the-canal)
which utilises the advanced, low distortion

a hearing loss impairs your ability to clearly
understand everyday sounds and conversations,
you're missing vital portions that resonate
and enrich your life.
speaking, resonance has a much greater impact
on effective hearing. Regardless of your ability
to hear, your ears offer some amazing natural
amplification abilities all on their own.
ears' built-in hearing aids..
The intricate shape of your outer ears act
as sophisticated sound gathering devices,
amplifying as well as directing sound waves
into the ear canal.
amplification takes place in your canals,
thanks to their naturally occurring acoustic
resonance. Like tuning forks and pipe organs,
your ears possess physical capacities that
actually amplify sounds at a certain frequency,
usually between 1200-3000 hertz.
