- Difficulties following conversations in public
- Struggling to hear conversations over the phone
- Needing to turn up the TV, radio, or computer more than you used to

Your local Beltone hearing professional will start with some questions about your lifestyle, hearing health, and hearing needs. Then you will go through a painless hearing test that will include a video ear exam and audiometric testing to accurately understand your hearing loss and what options are best for you going forward.
Only a hearing test administered by a professional can begin to answer this but if you suffer from some or all of the signs of hearing loss above, you are probably a good candidate. Many patients also ask if they need two Hearing Aids, because gradual hearing loss typically occurs in both ears, most professionals agree that it is in your best interest to fit both ears with hearing instruments. Wearing hearing aids in both ears helps restore the way your ears naturally work together to process sound.
Beltone offers a variety of payment plans ranging from six months to five years that allow Beltone hearing aids to fit within your budget. We have financing experts that work with insurance companies and discount programs to help make your treatment as affordable as possible.
Beltone’s newest digital hearing aids use advanced technology to provide users with a hearing experience that is personalized and natural. Digital hearing aids convert external sound waves into signals that are then adjusted, balanced and delivered into your ear based on your hearing needs to amplify the sounds that are most important while maintaining a clearer experience than analog hearing aids.
