Starkey E Series 3
Starkey, an American manufacturer, identified a requirement for a budget range of hearing aids and as such in 2009, launched the E Series. With two levels of technology available, the E3 is the higher specification, with four sound processing channels.
So, is this a good option?
Although it has a higher specification than its counterpart and offers good quality sound, ultimately, this is an economy product that has been superseded by more advanced technology, such as Ignite 30, part of a range produced by Starkey.
It comes in a number of styles:
· Behind the Ear – (BTE)
· Receiver in Canal – (RIC)
· Completely in Canal – (CIC)
· In the Canal – (ITC)
· In the Ear – (ITE)
4 Channels – sound processing is made easier with more channels to choose from, as your hearing aid can be programmed to suite your individual needs.
Feedback Cancellation – reduces whistling and other annoying feedback.
Sweep Technology – volume and memory settings can be altered by touch.
With only four channels and a restricted number of features available, the Starkey E Series 3, sits in the higher end of this economy range. It does not compete with later budget models such as the Starkey Ignite 30, which is a direct replacement for this model. The Ignite 30 offers more up to date technology, with wireless options at a similar budget and is well worth a look.
