How do I know a hearing aid will work for me?
The success of a hearing aid user will differ between persons based on the severity of the loss. So, if you have a friend/relative that does well with hearing aids, or poorly with hearing aids, then that does not mean you will have the same results because each individual’s loss is different. However, at Beltone you will be able to listen to and use a hearing aid before making a purchase decision. Also, we have a 30-day return policy when you purchase a hearing aid so that you have a peace of mind when making your decision.
