GLENVIEW, Ill. – Feb. 7, 2023 – Beltone, named America’s #1 Hearing Care Retailer & Best in Customer Service by Newsweek, has announced the expansion of its CES® Innovation Award winning Beltone Achieve™ hearing aid portfolio to include four additional style options for providers and patients to choose from, including the brand new miniRIE style.
Beltone Achieve hearing aids are Beltone’s best yet at helping patients hear through the noise which is the top motivation for those with hearing loss to purchase hearing aids, but also the number one challenge for those who already wear them.1 By providing 150% better speech clarity in noise compared to previous technology,2 Beltone Achieve helps them be part of the conversation, even in loud environments like packed restaurants, busy stores, or events. It also helps them to hear when something or someone is approaching from out of sight, such as a car or person so they never miss a moment.
“We’re very proud of the improvement of speech understanding in noise that Beltone Achieve provides and are thrilled to have additional styles utilizing this innovative technology for our Beltone hearing care professionals to offer to patients,” says Beltone President, David Molella.
Featuring the advanced hearing technology from the original Beltone Achieve RIE released last year, the hearing aid family expands with the new Beltone Achieve miniRIE as well as Beltone Achieve Custom Rechargeable, Beltone Achieve CIC, and Beltone Achieve BTE hearing aids to help those with hearing loss experience more of life, even in noisy situations, with the style best suited for them.
Along with providing all-day comfort and all-day battery life*, Beltone Achieve hearing aids are weatherproof and sweatproof and available in a diverse range of colors so users can confidently focus on doing more of what they love. Plus, with hands-free calls** and streaming from a smartphone or tablet, Beltone Achieve hearing aids are always ready to take on the day.
Additional Beltone Achieve styles:
- NEW miniRIE – These miniature receiver-in-ear hearing aids are Beltone’s smallest rechargeable style with a gently curved shape that rests low on the ear for a more discreet fit without compromising on sound or comfort.
- Custom Rechargeable – These hearing aids are designed to look like modern earbuds and offer a custom, comfortable fit, high-quality sound, and rechargeable batteries.
- Completely-in-Canal (CIC) – These simple custom designed hearing aids are so small it’s unlikely anyone will realize users are wearing them, and as they sit inside the ear canal, they’re protected from wind noise.
- Behind-the-Ear (BTE) – These user-friendly hearing aids are small, powerful, rechargeable, and can be matched to the user’s hair and complexion to maximize discreetness.
The original Beltone Achieve Receiver-in-Ear (RIE) hearing aids were released last August and have been receiving rave reviews from patients, providers, and in the media having won a CES® 2023 Innovation Award. Patient Greg Kupar shared his life-changing experience wearing Beltone Achieve hearing aids saying he’s able to continue working his job as a swim coach “Now with these marvelous hearing aids…my life is back! I am still walking around with a huge grin on my face and can now hear things I’ve been missing for decades!”
The new Beltone Achieve hearing aid models are planned for Regulatory clearance and will be rolled out globally starting with the US on February 23, 2023. To schedule a free hearing screening and to learn more, contact your local Beltone www.beltone.com/en-us/locator.
