This is the bottom of the Halo 2 range but is far from a basic hearing aid.
The Halo 2 i1600 is a 16 channel aid and is considered to be a mid-range hearing aid as Starkey didn't bring out a more basic i1200 and i1000 variant which was compatible with the iPhone. Therefore if you are looking for a less expensive Starkey aid and have no need for the "made for iPhone" features, then consider the Muse i1200 or Muse i1000 range instead.
The Halo 2 i1600 is a well specified hearing aid in the mid range bracket, Starkey have generously included all of the features of the top two models in this more basic one, just to a lesser degree. All of the core features are there, but this aid isn't as effective at automatically handling your environment and selecting which sounds to emphasise as well as the better models can. These aids are designed for people who mainly stick to quiet environments and places with a small amount of background noise. If that describes you then this hearing aid may suit you well.
