Starkey Hearing Aids Reviews the AMP

Starkey hearing aids reviews

Starkey AMP
It seems that the hearing impaired have always been looking for a hearing aid that is elusive as purple unicorns. Everybody wants to find that super adjustable hearing aid that is small does something that allows them to hear better than normal people and doesn’t cost very much. Starkey Hearing Aids Reviews regret to inform everyone; such a hearing aid does not exist. Yes, there are small hearing aids. Yes, there are hearing aids that claim to do everything in supra-human terms. Yes, there are inexpensive hearing aids. You just can’t get all those things in one package. Starkey may have come close to its new AMP hearing aid. You can get a reasonably adjustable hearing aid in a small package for a very attractive price.

Starkey Hearing Aids Reviews found the Starkey AMP hearing aid is not without its’ issues. The AMP is not incredibly powerful; it will not fit losses beyond a mild-moderate level. It has some adjustability, but not anything approaching the degree of adjustability in some of Starkey hearing aids more advanced models. It has basic level features, including a decent feedback and background noise manager. It is a “modular” hearing instrument, meaning that sleeves are used to adapt the unit to each. The price, while quite attractive, is nowhere near the pennies that some folks would like to pay for a hearing aid. At $1500 a set, the unit is a value for the right patient.
