Beltone Announces 80th Anniversary

Glenview, IL, March 1, 2020 – Beltone, a global leader in hearing health care (www.beltone.com), today announced the celebration of 80 years in business.  To help commemorate their 80-year anniversary, Beltone is offering free hearing screenings during the month of March.

It was 1940 when the Beltone legacy began. It started as a simple act of care. Sam Posen’s friend was in need of a hearing solution that allowed him to hear life to the fullest again. What happened next launched a revolutionary business into action. Posen created a miniaturized hearing solution with personalization features that allowed his friend to hear “as clear as the tone of a bell” for the first time ever. With that, Beltone was born. 

80 years later, Beltone is still about dedication to people. They work with the same spirit, care, and passion that Sam had when he started the company. Beltone is more than just hearing aids – rather, they’re hearing care partners there every step of the way throughout the journey to better hearing. With every new hearing innovation and breakthrough is a promise of partnership. 


This year, Beltone is celebrating 80 years as the most trusted brand for quality products and care among its patients. Beltone is honored to have changed so many lives and continues to focus on the needs of their customers through dedicated research and creation of innovative hearing technologies. No matter the need, Beltone is right beside you every step of the way.
