My hearing wasn't what it should be before I got Beltone Hearing Aids. I could hear the sound, but couldn't make out the words and thought everybody was mumbling. I took a free hearing test from them in the store, and have had my hearing aids for 15 years.Read full review

I had 50% hearing loss before contacting Beltone. I chose them over other hearing aid companies since they're well known and because of insurance. The Yuma station had excellent service. I had nothing but excellent interactions with the representatives. Everything was perfect from the time I first went in, to having the hearing test, getting my ear pieces, and going back twice for adjustments. I went with the receiver-in-the-canal style of hearing aid. I had to get used to it, but now it feels comfortable and I couldn't be without it. My hearing aid works very well and I'm also very satisfied with its cost. I told other people about it and they went and received hearing aids and treatments from the same company and the same office. My Beltone hearing has made my life a lot better. It has improved my life 100%.
I have been a hearing aid user for about 25 years. My last ones were Starkey and although they were the latest technology then never really helped me much. My hearing loss is in the profound range. I went to Beltone and the staff were fantastic. The Dr who worked with me was so thorough. After my exam he program a pair of demo Amaze 9 behind the ear aids. Wow! No wonder they call them Amaze. I have never heard so clearly. My comprehension rate before the aids was only 30% so I needed help badly. I got the price debated for a few hours and made the decision to order a pair. Awaiting their arrival as I write. I cannot wait to hear again. It will be nice to be able to hear my grandchildren again.
I have a minor hearing loss. My wife and other people have begun to detect it and we've talked about it off and on over the past six months. Then we received a $1,000 discount in the mail and so I decided to go ahead and see what Beltone was about and moved forward with it. A number of different tests dealing with ranges from the bass up to alto or tenor were done and detected a problem with hearing at the high pitch level.
Then for word clarity, they ran a series of 60 sounds or words that have various types of sounds like CH and SH sounds. Through that analysis, they determined that it wasn't a question of clarity and understanding because I only missed 1 out of 60. They also did a distance test with the test on the hearing aid system itself. The rep walked out of the room and talked at a normal voice to see if I could hear it through the hearing aids, which I did. He explained all the testing within both from the bass to the middle range to the high range, the differences, and the functions.
My hearing aids have been good. I have various settings because they are for different purposes, restaurants, at home or in a car. But initially, I had a problem with the way I was setting it back into the charger in the evening. I can rub the hearing aid attachment and I can hear the sound of the rubbing and everything with it right there. There were many times when it wasn't linking on the cellphone. If it wasn't linking, I couldn't reset it for the different environments that I was in. But that seems to have been corrected because I was told to lightly set the hearing device into the charger. I had been pushing it down and I don't know if that had any impact on it or not. I've started doing it with the way I was told and there has been no problem with the link at all. That problem was not with the hearing aid though. It was about the Wifi linkage connection. At this point, I'm satisfied that my hearing aids are working.

I had hearing loss from my childhood and it progressively got worse over the years. Then, I had a job in an office space where I had to be super quiet and I can’t hear when they talk. I was really loud and I didn’t even know it. And I’ve learned to lip read. My supervisor did not know I was almost deaf until we had the conversations because I would cheat and see what she was saying and piece it together. I had no choice and was forced to get hearing aids. I did research and purchased Beltone for their reputation.
When I got my first set, I truly heard my husband’s voice for the first time and we’ve been married almost 30 years. I cried the time I heard it. The lady that set me up with it was amazing, she sat there and cried right along with me. I could hear her and even the people in the hallway. I could understand what they were saying. When I go to their office, they know me by name. They genuinely care and it’s not about the money. They try to do everything they can to save me what they can. And they make the aids last as long as possible.
In general, I can have a full-blown conversation with somebody and not have to struggle as much. But with these hearing aids I have now, I’m struggling because my hearing is getting progressively worse and by the end of the year, it’ll be gone on the right side all completely. I’m getting ready to get my third set because my second set is just about the end of their road. What I have now is the one that goes in the canal, and then it’s over the ear, and behind the ear, and that’s probably what I’ll get again. The lady said what might work better for me is the one that’s molded to my ear and it goes inside but we’ll discuss those options when it's time.
It is what it is. I had to pay to get what I have to have, but it’s expensive. The next ones are gonna be $6,000, $7,000 so it’s sad. But they’re well-built hearing aids. My husband wouldn’t listen to me and went to some hearing aid place and he had nothing but trouble with his. I kept trying to say that mine had never broken and my batteries last a good week. I take them out at night and open the battery case so it's not running 24/7.
My insurance, SilverScript, had a program with Beltone and we got a big discount off it. The office people were great in getting me in on an appointment. The doctor that I was seeing put hearing aids in so that I could tell the difference in how it sounded before and after. He explained to me that I definitely needed them. I'm totally happy with my Beltone hearing aids. I put them in first thing in the morning and don't take them out till I go to bed.
My husband wears hearing aids too and a couple of our friends have tried them and gave up on them because they couldn't stand how loud things were when they first wore them. I said that they just did not give them the chance to tone down for the brain to get used to it. Even my mother bought hearing aids, wore them one day, and she's never put them back in, and it's been three years. My doctor explained it all to me and how it's gonna take a while for your brain to be able to get back to a normal sound and then things wouldn't sound so overly loud. There were things that sounded really loud to me. But in my mind, I just kept saying to hang in there because the doctor said that will go away in a couple of months.
I have a friend the in the town where I live that has done business with John from Beltone. I talked to John and I liked him. He’s a heck of a nice guy. He was very good to me and treated me like gold. The service couldn't have been any better. I decided right then and there to go with Beltone and get a hearing aid from them. Years ago, I got hurt in a mine accident and my workers’ comp sent me to a regular hearing doctor in Evansville, Indiana. So, I had to go down there and do my hearing test. They printed out all my results for me and then I took them to John at Beltone. He worked with me really well and the help he gave me was wonderful. I got a top-of-the line model that costs $8,350 and it has got a good warranty on it. It goes behind the ear and it has a little thing on it that is plugged into the ear.
John has done me a great favor and I appreciate what he did. My daughter is an assistant at Toledo University Basketball. We were going up there for a big deal over the weekend and I asked John about the hearing aid because I wanted to really hear what was going on. My workers' comp was paying for my hearing aid and I was not supposed to get it until it was paid for. But John let me take it with me and he said that he was not worried about me. He had talked to the workers’ comp people and they had said that his check would be with his business within 10 days, and it was.
Since I put my hearing aid in, it sure made a world of difference. When I sat out in our big family room at home to watch the news on TV, I had the volume on 26 before and my wife sat in the living room and watched television there because the TV in the family room was too loud for her. But now I've got the TV volume on 6.
So far, my experience with Beltone has been really well and I couldn’t have been treated any better. The girl that works for John, Katy, helped me too when I had a little problem one time. John had shown me how to clean the hearing aid and I thought I had cleaned it, but I still had a little earwax in it. Katy cleaned out my hering aid and put a new rubber thing on the end, and I was on my way in two minutes. I've told a guy who was gonna get a hearing aid to go down there to Beltone and see John. My hearing aid has helped me tremendously and I should have had it a long time ago. Now, I've even got John's cellphone number and he told me to call if I have any problems.
This is my second set of Beltones and I just upgraded them. My other hearing aids were old, and I had been inquiring about battery life since the upgraded ones are rechargeable. I jumped on the upgraded one right away because I wear them full time and I’m almost deaf if I don’t wear them. Also, I don’t have to spend money on the batteries.
I didn’t care for the gentleman that worked at Beltone three years ago. But Melissa, who works there now, is excellent. I can’t say enough nice things about her. The woman is amazing and she really knows her stuff. All I have to do is call her up, and she’ll walk me through it. She can go online or on a computer and talk to me, and I don’t even have to go in there. So, that is awesome.
I’ve only had the new hearing aids for six weeks now, and we’re still tweaking them. Melissa showed me a few tricks that I can try at home. My problem is when I get into my big office or into conference rooms or I get in an airplane or I go into noisy environments, all of these are changes that my hearing aids go wacky. I can get on the app and fix that right away, instead of having to take them out and worry about it later.
Melissa showed me the app and there is a lot of good information on the app if you just take the time to read it. And it does help you. When I get in my car and my grandchildren are in the backseat, I have to adjust because their tone is different than what my normal settings are, and all I have to do is go on my app. So, it is pretty awesome. It truly was worth the money for me to spend to be able to do this. Otherwise, my other hearing aids just had two adjustments, and I had to click the thing on the ear, and if it didn’t work, then I had to go in the office, and then the Beltone rep would have to plug them in and readjust them.

Excellent hearing aid and easy quick service when needed. I have had these hearing aids for 3 years and the cleaning and batteries have been a great savings for the hearing well and comfortably. The people who run the office and the service centers are very kind and efficient and are always glad to help in getting things shipshape!
Just had a free hearing test and cleaning of my devices. The device was adjusted and I can now hear better than when I went in. The staff at the Weslaco office is friendly and helpful. I recommend this product and office. You will be happy with everything. Carol **
I was hard of hearing and I needed something. Beltone was close to where I live. They were very nice and handled everything the right way. With the hearing aids, I can hear better. But, right now, I keep having to turn the TV up more and more even with the hearing aids in. And then, in a crowd, I can’t hear what the person says sitting next to me. Customer service has cleaned the device, worked with them, and tried to set them. It seemed like it helped for a while, but then it got back the same way. I have an appointment with them this month.
I called this location in October 2019 because they aggressively advertise that they do home visits anywhere on Vancouver Island serviced by paved roads. This seemed a good option for my 95 year old stepmother who is confined to a wheelchair and is in a demential care facility. Her hearing aids need replacing. I was told I would receive a call back when "the home visit schedule is finalized".
Five weeks later, on November 29 (Friday) I called back to see what was going on. After a lot of humming and hawing the receptionist admitted she had forgotten my request. I requested an urgent call back for Monday (since no one else was there). Received the call back from the technician/manager/whatever on Monday and was informed by him that home visits were no longer being done since he was only on site three days a week when he drove up from Victoria. When I asked why the visits were still being advertised and no one had bothered to communicate the discontinuation to me his response was I didn't have to do business with Beltone. Yup, got that right.
I strongly believe this organization advertises their home visits as a ploy to get potential customers to call (which I think is not in compliance with the competition regulations, but I could be wrong). At best, the advertising is wildly inaccurate. Furthermore, and probably even more troubling, there was no expressed remorse or apology around keeping a 95 year old dementia patient waiting for more than five weeks. These are supposed to be health professionals and I am sure they are fully aware that elderly patients in general are terribly isolated when they cannot hear. Dementia patients in particular have already lost so much - it seems taking the audio sense away as well is unnecessarily cruel.
I am beyond angry that she was treated this way. Shame on you Beltone for allowing this kind of substandard and uncaring service. It certainly makes one wonder what else in their advertising is "inaccurate" and what else falls into the category of buyer beware. My advice is to do what I am doing and run, not walk, to another provider.
Lots my hearing aid after 7 years. Insurance company pushed me to Beltone. Right out of the box, the top-end hearing aid sold/fitted to me by Beltone has ongoing issues. Harmonics - A resonant can be hit at multiple frequencies - causing a matching "tone" to be added. It started off with the email alert on my phone, then I noticed it during songs on the radio, then during conversations with women. In a restaurant setting it is almost unusable. Another unit is on the way. But the first sign of another resonant frequency - I'm asking for a full refund.
