Starkey S-Series Hearing Aids & Reviews

The S Series IQ range of hearing aids were launched in 2010 and at this time were the top level of technology available from Starkey. The ‘IQ’ refers to what was then Starkeys new noise reduction feature which is now a standard in most of their hearing aids. The S Series is available in 4 levels of technology IQ 11, IQ9, IQ7 and S Series 5, of which the IQ11 is the top level.

The S Series is available in the following styles

BTE – (Behind the Ear)

RIC – (Receiver in Canal)

CIC – (Completely in Canal)

ITC – (In the Canal)

ITE – (In the Ear)

IIC –  (Invisibe in Canal) (Not available on S Series 5)


The IIC style is also known as the S Series IQ Otolens which is a tiny device that fits deep in the ear canal. If you are interested in this kind of hearing aid then you may want to look at Starkeys new Soundlens range.


Features include


  • Up to 16 Channels - Each channel processes a range of frequencies so the more channels you have, the more specifically it can be programmed to suit your hearing needs.
  • Feedback Cancellation – This helps to eliminate the annoying whistling sounds that can sometimes occur using Starkeys Purewave technology..
  • Voice IQ – This feature helps to reduce the background noise and leave speech much clearer. This feature is not available on the S Series 5
  • Voice Indicators – Alert the wearer to the status of the hearing aid, battery level etc. This feature is only available on the IQ11.
  • Sweep Technology – This allows you to change volume or memory settings easily with one touch.


The S Series  also features Starkeys Hydrashield. This makes your hearing aids resistant to a range of substances such as sweat, wax or water, helping to prolong the life of the hearing aid.


In conclusion the Starkey S Series was their best  technology until 2012 when it was replaced by the X Series  which offers new features and added wireless capability. The S Series comes in a wide range of styles and offers a good range of features although this range is not compatible with Starkeys wireless accessories. If you are interested in this kind of hearing aid but would like more up to date technology then you may want to try the Starkey X Series.
