When our founder, Sam Posen, ..., 22 Sept 2015 [cached]
When our founder, Sam Posen, developed his first hearing aid in the 1930s, he wasn't motivated by money or ambition. He wasn't even a hearing specialist. He was a sound technician - a sound expert - trying to help a friend hear better.
Sam Posen's hearing aid worked so well that he built a company around it, but his primary focus was always the quality of sound.

In the 1930s, a man named Sam Posen developed a simple hearing aid so his friend could regain some of his hearing and enjoy life again. The device must have been successful, because by 1940, Posen formed The Beltone Company in Chicago in a meager 120-square-foot office space downtown. That same year, Beltone introduced its first-ever hearing aid - the Model H™. Posen built the devices in the back room while his wife, Faye, tested customers' hearing and fitted them for aids.
In 1964, Posen invents the Micro-Module electronic circuit, which makes it possible to have an even smaller behind-the-ear hearing aid.
It expands its headquarters yet again, celebrates its 30th anniversary, holds three inaugural Beltone International conventions and Sam and Faye's son, Larry, takes over as president in 1974.
