Beltone has been helping the world hear better for over 70 years. Take a trip down memory lane with us and experience the service Beltone has offered over that time…

Dear Beltone,
After a recent hearing test, the results indicated a loss of both the high and low frequency range. I was sure the results were similar to the results of the test of a few years ago, but I could hear ok. The Beltone specialist then convinced me to try the Digital Hearing Aids. After a few adjustments were made on these easy to insert, almost invisible hearing aids, a new hearing experience was realized. The very first difference I noted was the change in my own voice, as well as considerable reduction of tinnitus.

Further explanation and information resulted in setting up a trial over the weekend. It was amazing to hear things that I know I have not heard in many years. Outside the birds were making a lot more noise than usual and many sounds were audible to me.

A meeting on Saturday night and church on Sunday emphasized the ability to be able to hear clearly even with background clutter in a crowded area. Needless to say this trial period convinced me that there was a lot I was missing. Even with the expense of the Beltone Digitals, I feel that the improved hearing is certainly worth it.

Hearing is believe and there was no pressure applied to buy, but the trial period did the job of selling! I have even recommended to several people the benefits that may be available with Beltone hearing aids.

Thank you,

When I finally decided to get my hearing fixed, I talked to a number of people that had hearing aids. The one thing that they all said was to find someone that you have a repore with and who is knowledgeable a...bout fitting the hearing aids for you. The first place I tried went through all of the normal tests but I felt they had signed up to buy their franchise and taken the mandatory 3-6 week training course, but not as knowledgeable as I hoped to see. A friend of mine and I then went to the Beltone Seminar and were impressed with the quality of the people involved.

Soon after that I signed up for an appointment with Mike at Beltone. I Found him to be one of the rare individuals that will take time to answer all of the customers concerns, gave me as much time as I wanted, and was very knowledgeable about the product he was selling. I purchased your Edge Hearing Aids and have been very happy with both the hearing aids and the complete support that Mike has given me. He makes you feel like he is always available to answer your questions you may have or to make any minor adjustments that you feel are needed.

Dear Mr. Andreozzi,

I am 73 years old and never had the urge to write to a company before but I had to do so having been a client of Beltone for several years. I am very deaf and thanks to Peter Vieira and his wife Darlene, I now hear very well. The hearing aids have made a great difference in my hearing. As good as the product is, I am especially impressed by the service provided by the Vieira’s. They are always available for my adjustments went needed and when I recently had to have my hearing aids sent for repair, the turnaround was extremely quick.

Again, Peter and Darlene are always professional, pleasant and patient in all my dealing with them and I felt I would be remiss if I neglected to send this letter to you.

*How Much Do Our Customers Love True Technology?

Recently a client of ours recorded an album "I'm old Fashion" by Bob Rocha.
...... He did such a nice job I use it to demo the Trues on some of our clients.

Mrs. Hunt was complaining that Ralph and her go ballroom dancing, but lately he has been missing a beat and their dance step was off.

Well after purchasing the Trues she was happy to report his smile and dance step was back. When he came in for a checkup and to pair his TV link I tested the link and happen to have Bob's album in the computer. He just smiled and started to dance with his wife. I thought it was so cute I had to take a picture and send off the story for our newsletter. Look at his big smile giving me the OK sign.

We should all be thankful here at Beltone New England that we are able to change people’s lives.
