Try the New Smartphone SoundCheck App!

With football season well under way, how has your hearing been treating you? If you’ve been to a college, NFL, or high school game this year, we hope you had a great time — and wore hearing protection!

Sometimes it’s hard to prepare for sounds reaching dangerous levels, particularly when things that cause noise — like a cheering crowd — seem to happen randomly during the game. But with Starkey’s new SoundCheck app for smartphones, you’ll be able to find out if noise levels are dangerously high, whether you’re at the game or watching with friends at a local spot.

The new SoundCheck app features a decibel meter to check the noise levels in your area, and it will alert you when the volume around you could start to cause hearing damage. We want you to listen carefully this football season — and Starkey’s SoundCheck app can help you do just that.

In addition to the decibel meter, the SoundCheck app also includes a hearing screening that you can perform on your own time at your own pace via your phone! This basic screening may offer you, your friends, or your family some important insight, letting you know that you may not be hearing as well as you thought.

The app is available in both the App Store and on Google Play. Regardless of what an app may tell you, your routine professional hearing evaluations are essential. We hope to see you and your loved ones before the holidays!
