Beltone hearing instruments are known for their tiny size, superior sound quality, user-friendly features, and wireless connectivity. They’re small enough to sit on the tip of a finger–yet sophisticated enough to simulate the way ears actually process sound. They hide from view and can even be controlled with a smart phone. The result? An incredibly natural listening experience that’s discreet, comfortable and cosmetically appealing.

The Natural Choice – Beltone Promise™ (Select)
Beltone Promise™ hearing instruments deliver sound as you remember hearing it—clear and easy to understand. As you move through the day and encounter different “sound surroundings”, your Promise hearing aids communicate with each other to intelligently – and automatically – self-adjust. As you change locations, transitions feel smooth and natural, and the sound is just right.
Ear-to-Ear Synchronization – Beltone Promise hearing aids automatically self-adjust according to where you are – in a quiet room, outside, or in a noisy restaurant, for example. And, if you choose to manually adjust one hearing aid, the change is instantly transferred to the other hearing aid, hands-free.
Personal Wireless Network™ – Beltone is the first hearing aid company to offer many wireless hearing aid accessories that all work without cords or neck-loops. Our unmatched 2.4 GHz technology sends clear sound from your TV, stereo, PC, phone, iPod® and more, directly into your hearing aids.
What does this mean for you? If you’re watching TV with a group of people, sound is streamed straight into your hearing aids. Adjust the volume without affecting what others hear. Freely move about the room. And, converse with others, while still hearing the television. Ask about Direct TV Link!
Another wireless accessory, the Beltone myPAL, is a small, portable mini-microphone with multiple uses. It can be placed in front of–or clipped onto–a sound source (such as your spouse) you want to hear…even from a distance. It’s easy to hear a lecture from the back of the lecture hall, or hear someone sitting at the opposite end of a table-for-10, at a noisy restaurant.
Each of our wireless accessories does something different for our patients. Be sure to ask for a demonstration when you come in!

Styles of Hearing Aids
Invisible-in-the-Canal (IIC) Style
Tiny is the new small! About the size of a raspberry, Beltone Invisible-in-the-Canal (IIC) hearing aids are the instruments of choice for those who desire hearing help that can’t be seen.
A Invisible-in-the-Canal (IIC) starts its life as an ear-impression of your ear canal. The impression is turned into a 3-D computerized rendering. From there, each hearing aid component is “virtually” positioned, in order to create the tiniest finished product possible. Then, your hearing aid is built, and delicately sculpted until it matches the contours of your ear canal.
This hand-tailoring ensures a “made-for-you” shape, and a superior fit. It also permits the hearing aid to sit more deeply within your ear canal, hidden from view. And, patients enjoy the clear and natural listening experience IICs provide.
Mini Behind-the-Ear (Mini BTE) Style
The Mini BTE style hearing aid is a smaller version of the traditional BTE instrument. It features a nearly invisible tube connecting the casing to either a custom-made ear mold, or, an “open” ear dome. An open ear dome has small openings built into it and provides an “open fit.” The benefits of an open fit are more natural sound perception and extra airflow due to the apertures in the ear dome. Mini BTE hearing aids are great candidates for an open fit.
Because mini BTE hearing aids are so small, they provide enhanced aesthetics. You can choose from a variety of colors to match your hair color or skin tone.
Receiver-in-Ear (RIE) Style
Receiver-in-Ear (RIE) hearing aids are the newest BTE style devices on the market, and, the most popular. An RIE hearing aid is comprised of a very small casing that sits behind the ear. The casing houses all of the electronic components of the hearing aid except for the receiver (also called the speaker). This allows the casing to be extremely tiny, so it’s barely visible. A narrow transparent tube carries very thin wires from the casing to the receiver, which rests in your ear canal.
RIE hearing aids offer exceptionally natural sound quality, and can be used with custom-made or standard ear molds, depending on your individual amplification needs. Almost all types of hearing loss can be assisted with RIE style hearing aids.
Traditional Behind-the-Ear (BTE) Style
Easy-to-wear BTE devices are small, and feature a curved casing designed to nestle comfortably behind the ear. By matching flesh tone or hair color, they hide with ease. A transparent tube connects the device to a custom-created ear mold worn in your ear canal. Ear molds are lightweight and comfortable, making BTE hearing aids easy to wear all day.
BTE style hearing aids can be used by just about everyone. They assist the entire spectrum of hearing loss, from mild to severe. Additionally, they are budget friendly, and adapt to most lifestyles.
Microphone-in-Concha (MIC) Style
Designed to “disappear” from view and provide extremely natural sound, the MIC style hearing aid represents the latest innovation in “custom” hearing aid technology. The main part of an MIC hearing aid hides in your ear canal. This piece is custom-manufactured based on an ear canal impression taken during your visit, so it’s very comfortable. The hearing aid microphone is a separate component, and is worn within the concha, or curved groove, of your external ear—where it stays out of sight. A tiny transparent tube sends sound from the microphone in your concha to the component in your ear canal.
The ingenious construction of the MIC style hearing aid takes advantage of the ear’s anatomy to provide near-to-natural sound quality, and outstanding appearance. By placing the microphone in the curved portion of your ear, it’s protected from wind noise. This makes the MIC style perfect for active individuals who spend time outdoors.
