Hear Coach is a suite of listening games developed by Starkey Laboratories; it features games that challenge both your cognitive and auditory sharpness.

Hear Coach is now connecting to personalized hearing websites, like MyAudibel.com. Users can work with their hearing professional to create a personalized website and track their Hear Coach progress on the website or their iPhone / iPad.

Hear Coach can still be used without connecting to a personalized website but progress tracking will not be available. Upgrades from existing installs of Hear Coach will clear all previously saved progress tracking.

Hear Coach, a new mobile app for auditory training, is now available in the iTunes store. Patients with hearing loss often have communication breakdowns in noisy situations, and auditory training activities are designed to help them sharpen their hearing and listening skills. However, if a program doesn’t engage patients and encourage them to spend enough time training to improve performance, it won’t work.

Hear Coach takes a different approach by providing interactive listening games designed to challenge a patient’s cognitive and auditory skills, helping patients improve their ability to listen in noise so they can participate without as much effort. The app allows patients to track their progress over time while continuously challenging themselves. We encourage the use of this app as part of your fitting process to increase patient acceptance and satisfaction.
