Introducing Livio® AI — what living your best life sounds like
Track and take charge of your body and brain health with new Starkey hearing aid named Livio AI, the world’s first hearing aid to feature integrated sensors and artificial intelligence. Livio AI marks the beginning of a hearing revolution. For the first time, there’s a hearing aid that not only sounds crisp, clear, and unlike any other, it also helps the wearer track and monitors how physically and mentally active they are.
Livio AI isn’t just the world’s best hearing aid — it’s a multi-purpose device that completely redefines what a hearing aid can do.
Let’s walk through what Livio AI can do for you.
Livio AI is our best sounding hearing aid ever
The first and most important job of any Starkey hearing aid is to help people with hearing loss hear speech, music and sounds as crisply, clearly and naturally as possible. While other premium hearing aids are getting better at that, none compare to the sound quality of Livio AI. Here’s why.
Hearing is complex and challenging to replicate. We’re always presented with an array of sounds from varied sources. Some are meant to be in the background. Some are extraneous noises that are best blocked out, so they don’t interfere with the signal of interest. And some, like a companion’s voice or a granddaughter’s performance in the school play, are those signals of interest we want to focus on.
When we hear “normally,” we take in these layers of sounds, and our brains blend and focus them differently depending on each situation. When we have hearing loss, the layers combine less smoothly and focus becomes unclear.
Hearing Reality better replicates natural hearing
Livio AI hearing aids introduce a brand new technology called Hearing Reality™. The ear’s version of virtual reality, Hearing Reality uses high-speed, high-definition computer processing to manage, separate, and help us focus these many layers of sound on replicating natural hearing better.
The result is immersive, authentic hearing, where quiet sounds are quiet, noise can be “ignored,” and you’re able to focus on the sounds (or signals of interest) that matter and that you want to hear.
In trials, Livio AI hearing aids earned a 98 percent satisfaction rating for sound quality, and wearers noted a significant reduction in listening effort, which — if you have hearing loss — is what you want, especially in loud, noisy places.
Livio AI is the first hearing aid with sensors and artificial intelligence
Just as the iPhone forever changed what we could do with a phone, the newest Starkey hearing aid, Livio AI, will forever change how we think of and use hearing aids. Adding sensors and artificial intelligence for the first time in a hearing aid is one reason why.
Experts agree that the head — and the ear, specifically — is a much more accurate place to measure our physical activity and monitor our body’s “signals” than on the wrist or in a pocket. By including 3D motion sensors like an accelerometer and gyroscope, Livio AI hearing aids detect movement and gestures and give a more reliable readout of your steps and activity.
And thanks to artificial intelligence (AI), Livio AI hearing aids can learn and perform tasks that no other hearing aids can, including letting you turn streaming on and off by simply tapping your ear instead of your hearing aid, translating languages, and tracking and measuring body and brain health.
Livio AI is the first hearing aid that tracks body and brain health
If you believe good physical and cognitive health is critical to your overall quality of life — especially as you age — Livio AI hearing aids make it easy to stay on top of both.
Paired with our all new Thrive Hearing app, Livio AI hearing aids track your physical activity (similar to a Fitbit) and measure actions that are good for your brain health, like daily usage of your hearing aids, social engagement, and time spent listening actively.
Each day, the Thrive app then combines your body and brain activity to give you a Thrive Wellness Score, which helps you know if you’re meeting your physical and cognitive health goals.
Enjoy universal Bluetooth connectivity to your TV, smartphone and more
Whether you want to listen to TV, stream music from a media player, or better hear a presenter or speaker in the middle of a crowded venue, Livio AI and our brand-new line of Starkey Hearing Technologies accessories make that easy, too.
These small, user-friendly devices let you stream your favorite entertainment directly to your hearing aids, isolate and stream a voice in hard-to-hear places, or enable you to control your hearing aids remotely without needing to touch them.
The Thrive Hearing app puts control in the palm of your hands
Finally, as the control unit for your Livio AI hearing aids, our new Thrive Hearing app makes it easy to take advantage of all Livio AI’s benefits and truly enhance any and every listening experience, including:
- Answering phone calls and streaming conversations
- Adjusting volume, settings or memories
- Requesting and receiving adjustments from your hearing professional without having to go to their office
- Creating and using personalized memories, which automatically activate when you get to a favorite or frequented location
- Translating languages and streaming the translation directly to your hearing aids
- And more!

Ready to experience Livio AI for yourself?
Finest audiologist in Sierra Vista. Have been dealing with this company for over fifteen years. First my father and secondly my mother and now myself. Still servicing my 101 year old mother’s hearing aids. No high pressure sales, just a free audio exam and detailed discussion of results and what they mean. They market many different brands of hearing aids and can compare the different types as to which one best meet your needs. Many different pricing options to fit your budget. One thing to look for when purchasing hearing aids is to make sure that the manufacturer does not have proprietary programming software. I ran into this difficulty with my father as well as my mother. The representative of their manufacturer closed up and moved out of town. Their hearing aid software was proprietary and no other audiologist in town could adjust them. We were forced to drive to Tucson and find a representative who could do that. Quite an inconvenience. I had a hearing evaluation today, 15 June 18, and when given options as to what type would best meet my budget and requirements I asked about the proprietary software issue that I had run into with my parents. I was assured that all six manufacturers that they carried did not have proprietary software. If you move away, you can still have a better choice of audiologists for adjustments. I took the time to discuss this issue as I encountered it with both my mother and father!
