EDEN PRAIRIE, MINN – Starkey is proud to announce its all-new Genesis AI hearing aids have been named a winner in the Health & Pharmaceuticals Product category of the 2023 American Business Awards. As the nation’s premier business awards program receiving more than 3,700 nominations this year, the Stevie Awards recognize excellence in the workplace, and mark the fourth product innovation and design award won by Genesis AI since its launch this February. 

“Starkey continues to be recognized for pushing the edge of what was possible,” said Starkey President and CEO Brandon Sawalich. “We set out to engineer a product from the inside out, and as a result, we’ve created the smartest, most intuitive hearing aid, worthy of recognition for excellence.”  

Starkey’s Genesis AI is leading the hearing industry in redefining the future of hearing health, not just with incremental improvements, but with breakthrough benefits. The all-new Starkey Neuro Processor within Genesis AI features the industry’s most advanced processor technology, which mimics the function of the central auditory system through an on-chip Deep Neural Network accelerator. It is not only the smallest processor ever engineered by Starkey, but also the most powerful with 6X more transistors. It is also loaded with 5X more computational memory and 10X the amount of non-volatile memory. Moreover, with a power-efficient architecture, Genesis AI offers more than double the battery life compared to previous technology.
