Beltone Hearing Aids

The First With Made For iPhone Hearing Aids

Made For iPhone Hearing Aids

Beltone is both a hearing aid brand and an international retail organisation. They are primarily a US-based brand with retail outlets across the United States. They are owned by GN Hearing and have been for many years. Their hearing aid products share the same hardware platform as ReSound products and their features and strategies are similar. While there would be instant brand recognition of Beltone within the US, globally, they are not a big player globally.  

Beltone hearing technology is closely aligned with ReSound hearing technology and while the features are named differently, they are similar in nature. Beltone people say that their audiological approach is different, their ideas around amplification and care differ from ReSound. Of course, with a large retail arm, they are closer to the user and use those learnings to guide everything that they do. Beltone offers three levels of technology in each of their hearing aids Platforms with the exception of their new Amaze devices offering. Those levels of technology are usually numbered 17, 9 & 6. Let's take a look at what Beltone has to offer.

Amaze

The Beltone Amaze was launched at the same time as the LiNX Quattro and is a very similar hearing aid offering in concept and design. The Amaze range from Beltone is available in two levels of technology with a 17 and 9 range. The devices use the brand new chipset from GN Hearing and Beltone took the opportunity to re-design many of their leading features to take full advantage of the extra speed. To put it in perspective, the new chipset has double the speed and memory of the last one and it offers 30% more computing power, while reducing battery drain while streaming by 25%. Those are excellent figures considering the success and efficacy of their previous Trust range.

  • The Amaze range is available at two levels of tech
  • The devices are Receiver In Canal devices

  • They have introduced a redesigned wireless radio with extra signal strength
  • They have extended the bandwidth of the devices giving extra high-frequencies

A Lithium-ion Rechargeable Made For iPhone Hearing Aid

Beltone Amaze line-upThe Beltone Amaze is available in two models, the 63 which is the rechargeable device and the 64 which is a traditional zinc-air powered device. The 63 is a rechargeable direct connection, Bluetooth enabled or Made For iPhone hearing aid. Beltone are using a newly redesigned wireless radio that they say that is more powerful than ever before. It should offer a solid connection to the iPhone. Making it a rechargeable device makes a lot of sense, although they have used the chip upgrades to improve power consumption, a rechargeable option allows you the comfort of never having to worry about hearing aid batteries. The battery life is also fantastic, they say that you will get 24 hours of life even if you are streaming for 50% of the time, that's amazing. The device shown above is the rechargeable option, but as I said,  they are also offering a traditional hearing aid battery model using a size thirteen battery.

Premium Plus Price Point

Beltone have not introduced the devices as a replacement for the Trust, rather, they have introduced them as a new premium price point above the Trust. As I said, they have introduced two RIC models, it will be interesting if the expand the models and the price points. We will keep you updated as to what they do next.

Trust Hearing Aids

The Beltone Trust hearing aids are the latest full model type range of Made For iPhone hearing aid technology. They offer outstanding results even in very complex sound situations. The Trust was the first range that featured the new remote care experience. While the accompanying HearMax app allows you a lot of control over your settings, it also allows you to request assistance wherever you are. Your hearing professional can make all the adjustments necessary. Let's take a high-level view of the Beltone Trust range

The Beltone Trust includes Beltone's 5th generation 2.4 GHz wireless technology and 3rd generation CrossLink directionality.
