This is one of those “just in case you ever wanted to know” threads.
Recently, another forum member stated that my Beltone Edge2 hearing aids are manufactured in China and exported to the United States. This statement compelled me to seek more detailed information regarding my Edge2’s and about Beltone in general.
So exactly where were my Edge2’s manufactured?
To get the straight scoop I naturally contacted Beltone Customer Care. Only hours after emailing Beltone I received the requested information directly from Beltone’s Director of Customer Care. Here is his reply.
“Our Edge 2 product as well as our remaining products contain parts that are manufactured in different parts of the world including the United States, Great Britain, and China. In addition, China does assemble the units.”
