Beltone Testimonials

Sherry Palmer:
"My screening experience was exceptional. I knew I had a hearing deficit but was blown away at my low level of word comprehension. The clarity of hearing with the demo Amaze was profound."
Julia Martin:
"I would tell others how easy Beltone was and the difference in being able to hear and knowing what you couldn't hear. You would be able to discern birds and different trees and what a siren sounds like to be in a car."
Michael Valovcin:
"The professionalism, understanding, care, consideration, and reassurance exhibited by the Hearing Professional, were nothing short of outstanding. In addition, once you purchase the hearing aids designed for your personal needs, Beltone does not leave you on your own to adjust to them."
Jeffrey Koivu:
"This is a real game changer. I had one to try out for a week, and I must say that I was quite pleased with the MyPAL Pro. Throw in the easy access to Beltone hearing specialists, and a lifetime of care, and it was perhaps the smartest purchase I've ever made."

We believe that Beltone offers the best products and service in the industry. But if you don't believe us, just listen to some of our customers!

Here at Beltone, we know how important good hearing is to the health and happiness of our patients. Hearing clearly keeps us connected with friends and loved ones, aware of our surroundings, and independent. Also, by keeping the brain properly stimulated, good hearing may lower our risk for Alzheimer's disease, depression and balance issues.

Our mission doesn't stop with finding just the right hearing instrument for each patient we serve. It continues with making sure you're totally comfortable with your hearing instruments in every way. Visit Beltone soon! And join the ranks of the “happily hearing”.
