Thread: Starkey Surflink Mobile ????

  1. Default Starkey Surflink Mobile ????

    A question for the Starkey experts - I just saw on the Starkey Pro website something called "Surflink Mobile". Is this the long awaited bluetooth device for the Wi series? Says it will be available May 2012 - but I was hoping someone might have a littel bit of advanced info on this.

    Thanks.

    I heard a Starkey inside sales rep say their Bluetooth solution for the Wi Series should be available by late May. This could be the same product.

    EDIT: a quick Google search turned up this PDF from Micro Tech, the Starkey brand I use. Their Mobility Series is the same as the Wi series. From that page:

    • New SurfLink Mobile — our small touchscreen remote that
    enables easy cell phone and entertainment
    streaming with any device that has a bluetooth connection
    • Hands-free connectivity to phones: Enables Mobility
    hearing aids to be be used as the telephone microphone
    — no need to hold anything up to hear or talk
    • Acts as a conference mic or assisted listening device

    Also, Starkeypro mentions it here.

    Both site indicate a May release.

    EDIT2: I am not a Starkey expert, just a user.

    For listening to music, the current Surflink Media should work. If youare using a portable device, perhaps the rumored Surflink Mobile would work, but it has not been released. I had heard it would be available late May in the US. The links I provided earlier seem to indicate May too.

    I just got Micro Tech Mobility aids ( Wi i110) a few weeks ago. I have been using the Surflink Remote, but I have not used the Surflink Media other than to test it. My current home theater system only had analog outputs and does not output any digital inputs. My TV & Blu-Ray are both digital inputs

    If the Surflink Mobile is reasonably priced, I may get one.

    BTW, by HIS says he is going on training for this in mid-May.

  7. Default Surflink Mobile

    Was tested today for the ups/downs of my hearing loss and was measured and have the aid ordered. According to the technician that was assisting me it is bluetooth capable. The remote also has an mp3 plug and much more. I'm frankly amazed at the distance they've come since having gotten my chunky monkey some years ago. Google StarkeyPro Surflink Accessories the link should take you directly to the goods.

    But the Surflink Mobile that will provide Bluetooth still has not been released, has it? Starkey's website still says May 2012.

    the Surflink Media is 900 MHz wireless, not Bluetooth.

    Not yet, and they are acting like they're Apple or something. Their annual sales meeting was this week, and they are talking about how great Surflink Mobile will be. It would be shocking if they don't announce both Surflink Mobile and a new wireless aid within the next few weeks.

    Default LOOk aids with Surflink

    I hope any future developments with SURFLINK are better that what I have experienced with my TV system......Which is GARBAGE!!!!

    The sound is tinny and fades in and out and is nowhere near what I can get on my MP3 without HA. I've reverted to my SONY RF headphones for comfortable listening.
    After six months of use, I'm extremely disappointed with the overall performance of the Look units and in hindsight, wished that I'd pushed for a trial period because I would have returned them and saved myself $5000.

    Truly miffed!!!!
