Starkey is the undisputed leader if you want a custom-molded, in-the-ear hearing aid. Each new custom Starkey release quickly takes the lead, and Evolv AI is no exception. The Starkey Evolv line of custom products was released in January 2022 and is already a hit. Starkey offers four sizes of custom hearing aids, from their completely invisible hearing aid to a full shell product that comes with more power.

Starkey is the 5th largest hearing aid manufacturer globally and the only major manufacturer based in the U.S. The Minnesota-based company has set itself apart by turning its hearing aids into full health tracking devices complete with fall detection, steps tracking, and an overall health score. Think Fitbit meets hearing aids. Starkey hearing aids aren't just about health tracking, though; they also come with some of the industry's most powerful A.I. sound algorithms.

Starkey Evolv AI 2000 is the second option within the line. Evolv AI 2000 offers 20 programming channels and comes with mid-level A.I. capabilities. This product should work great if you spend time in smaller groups and at home.

How It Works

Soundly is an educational site and does not sell prescription hearing aids directly.

Instead, we research and connect you with care providers with the best reviews and prices.

To get custom Starkey Evolv AI hearing aids with local care, we recommend you work with ZipHearing.

ZipHearing represents a network of 600+ hearing professionals around the country and offers pre-negotiated pricing at 25%-40% below the national walk-in average for the same product.

Click the "find care" button above to be connected with a local clinic.

Using ZipHearing, you can access the same clinics found in the phonebook at a reduced rate due to the negotiating power of ZipHearing's thousands of customers.

If you have questions about your hearing health and want to talk to a doctor from home, we suggest you book time with Tuned. Tuned is a non-biased, 3rd-party group of audiologists that charge only for their time and can talk to you about any questions or needs you have, from tinnitus to hearing aids. Book with Tuned here.

Soundly is reader supported. We independently review everything we recommend. When you buy through our links, we may earn a commission.

Product Differentiators

Hearing aids from top brands often blend together, so this is a great question.

Starkey is broadly considered the leader in custom molded prescription hearing aids. If you want a premium device that sits entirely in your ear, Starkey Evolv AI is the gold standard.

Note that Starkey Evolv AI hearing aids are only available through local clinics. If you want a DIY invisible product, you’ll want to look at Eargo or Audicus Mini. 

Choosing a Size

Starkey's custom hearing aids come in 4 sizes, from invisible to full-shell. The overall sound processing is the same throughout the line, but some technology like Bluetooth and rechargeable batteries is only available in larger sizes. 

Evolv AI Invisible Hearing Aid (only available at the 2400 tech level)

  • Tiny size makes it truly invisible, 
  • Uses a disposable size 10 battery
  • Best for mild to moderately-severe hearing loss
  • Does not allow Bluetooth streaming
  • Allows remote programming after your first in-person visit
  • Includes fitness tracking and personal assistant options  

Evolv AI Completely In Canal Hearing Aid (available at all tech levels)

  • Slightly larger than the entirely invisible style 
  • Uses a disposable size 10 or 312 battery
  • Best for mild to moderately-severe hearing loss

  • Allows for two-way phone audio (like Airpods)
  • Allows remote programming after your first in-person visit 
  • Includes fitness tracking and personal assistant options

Your care provider will assist you in making final decisions.

Starkey Evolv AI custom hearing aids are more than just hearing technology. These smart devices also help track your health. While custom devices aren't recommended for every hearing loss, they're great for those who can benefit.

Starkey has been making the smallest and best custom hearing aids for decades. Evolv AI is currently the smallest custom device on the market with Bluetooth streaming capabilities.
