Beltone, Glenview, Ill.—a hearing aid company—and the Edison Awards announced that Beltone’s myPAL accessories were voted a Bronze Winner for innovation. Celebrating 30 years of honoring the best in innovation and excellence in the development of new products and services, Beltone joined hundreds of senior executives from some of the world’s most recognized companies at the April 20 event at The Capitale in New York City to acknowledge the hard work and commitment of all of the 2017 Edison Award winners. The Edison Awards are sponsored by the Edison Universe, a charitable organization dedicated to supporting innovators and inventors.

The Beltone myPAL Pro and myPAL Micro are hearing aid accessories that provide the ultimate experience in personalized sound, according to Beltone. Beltone myPAL accessories are small portable microphones that capture sounds clearly—even in noisy environments—and stream directly into the wearer’s hearing aids, bringing the conversation or entertainment closer to them.

Being recognized with an Edison Award is reportedly one of the highest accolades a company can receive in the name of innovation and business. The awards are named after Thomas Alva Edison (1847-1931) whose inventions and innovative achievements changed the world.

“Our judges recognized Beltone as a true innovator out of the many products in its category,” said Frank Bonafilia, executive director of the Edison Awards.

“The myPAL accessories offer additional, personalized hearing solutions in situations where there’s extra background noise, giving users an enhanced ability to communicate with family and friends,” said Corrine Perritano, president of Beltone North America. “We are thrilled to receive the Bronze distinction from the Edison Awards and excited to continue innovating for our customers.”

Beltone myPAL accessories and other products can be found at more than 1,500 Beltone locations throughout North America. Find a location near you.
