Limited Warranty

All new Beltone hearing instruments carry a standard limited warranty that lasts 12 months from the date of purchase and covers any manufacturing or material defects.  Please ask the hearing care professional, where you purchased your Beltone hearing aid, about the terms and conditions of an extended limited warranty. This limited warranty does not cover (i) accessories such as batteries, tubes, ear modules and external receivers; (ii) compatibility issues with the hardware and software products of others, including but not limited to compatibility issues with another company’s products introduced after the time of purchase; or (iii) damage from improper handling or care, exposure to chemicals or undue stress. Damage caused by third parties or non-authorized service centers renders the warranty null and void. This warranty does not include any services performed by a hearing care professional in their office. Purchase of a Beltone hearing instrument from an unauthorized online retailer voids the warranty. Any warranty granted by Beltone with respect to Beltone hearing instruments may be deemed void, at the sole discretion of Beltone, if any Beltone products covered by such warranty is used for any purpose not permitted hereunder or otherwise in violation of any other use restriction.
