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.

Not every person has to have a digital hearing aid, and some previous users may prefer an analog hearing aid over digital. However, modern technology has come a long way in the last few years, and over 95% of our patients choose a digital hearing aid. Generally, the more active a person is the more advanced of a hearing aid they will need to meet their lifestyle demands. There are many different types of digital hearing aids to choose from with Beltone. We will present you with the best options for your hearing loss, thus allowing you to make an informed decision.

"My Beltone Hearing Aids are the third pair of aids I've had Over the years. They also are the only aids I've found that consistently provide the assistance needed to understand what people say as well as to be able to enjoy evening TV without having the volume so high that my wife is miserable. They have done the job for me so I can heartily recommend them to others."
"Beltone has been a miracle cure for me in many ways. My family was pushing me to have my hearing tested but I was totally in denial. When I saw that Beltone was having a free hearing test going on, I knew it couldn't hurt, so I made an appointment. I was totally shocked at how bad the test came out. The staff at Beltone, especially Scott and Dee have been absolutely wonderful. They have made a tremendous difference in my hearing, worked with me when I was having problems or difficulty, plus worked with the insurance company. I am pleased that I chose Beltone and so is my husband and children."
" I spent a lot of time saying "what did you say" when someone talked to me because they spoke softly. I did not hear them. Several people replied you need hearing aids. I am very Pleased that I now can hear the first time they say something. The first time I went to mass after I wore them was wonderful. I heard every word and it was so nice. I am so glad I have them."
"Since coming to Beltone and purchasing hearing aids, my quality of life has completely changed for the better. The service I receiv is outstanding when ever I need adjustments or have any problems with the device, it is taken care of. The people here at Beltone audiology and hearing center are outstanding, friendly and listen to you. It is a very family atmosphere. Everything about the center is outstanding."
"Beltone would be the only place I would go for my hearing problems. Whether the office or on the phone, I always get a welcome or a winning smile and a big hello, how are you doing and what can we do for you today. They really care."
"From the time I stepped into the "Beltone" door and welcomed by Dee and Scott. I immediately felt that I was in the "right" place to be able to hear again. Scott made certain that everything was OK before fitting me up correctly. What patience they have! -- to answer to smallest of issues.
Now.. the more than happy day happened. Recently..I went to a play/concert.. when I got home.. I said to myself "I can't" believe this.. I actually heard every word. Its been a long time since I could say that.
Thanks again for your "friendly" service."
