Found Anthony Carbone at this hearing center, to be friendly, knowledgeable and professional. The product quality is excellent, and any problems were dealt with quickly. After a few monthly check ups, discovered we had a problem with both of my hearing aides, Tony suggested we send them back to Audibel, where they were then checked, calibrated, and replaced completely, all at no additional costs, and returned within a few days. Now they are performing perfectly, that's real good service . Yes I would recommend them to friends.

No charge for office visits ever and cheap batteries and filters. The audiologist continues to check and fine tune your hearing aid until the customer is totally satisfied and comfortable with it.Very helpful and knowledgeable and they give you 3 month checkups for free.

My experience with Audibel Hearing Center. Dr Tony is very knowledgeable, professional yet personable. My appointments were always at the scheduled times. I highly recommend Dr. TONY and his staff at (AUDIBEL HEARING CENTER) FOR ALL OF YOUR HEARING NEEDS. DR. Tony is very patient and answers all of your questions in layman's terms. He takes the time to make sure, that you understand and are satisfied with the examination process. He does not try to steer you towards the more expensive hearing aids. The ultimate decision is yours.

I am so happy with the care I have received from Audibel Hearing Center. Christine is such a professional. My hearing had become worse over a period of time. The hearing test was the most through I'd ever had. The follow up and corrections to the setting has been wonderful. I can now hear so much better. Loving it. Thank you Audibel staff for your kindness.

I'm impressed by the professionalism of everyone in the office. Ralph took the time to explain the tests and why they are important. I was and will be a pleasure to do business with them.

I stopped by hoping to get a hearing aid repaired which unfortunately was not fixable. While I was there, I decided to have a hearing test as I hadn’t had one in awhile. I just moved down from NYC and have my hearing examined by some of the best in the field. Ralph is right up there with the best. He is extremely knowledgeable, thorough and explained every step of the process. I highly recommend!!

This place is awesome. Dr Paul and Marissa continually go above and beyond to make sure my Mom is hearing as well as possible. Always polite and concerned, they work with her whenever she needs help. Yes the hearing aids are expensive but they are quality materials and they do everything possible to make them affordable. I cannot say enough good things about his place and these people.

“Life is so much better and more enjoyable now that I am hearing much better! Thank you Keith!”

Janice Homer

“My right ear has had hearing loss for more than 35 years. I would turn my head so people could whisper in my left ear before I could hear them. I got my hearing checked by an ENT and Miracle Ear. Both told me I had a conductive hearing loss, and told me the only way to correct it was surgery. I came to Audibel and James was the only one that told me that a hearing aid might work for me. It has worked like a charm. I can hear people whisper in my right ear for the first time in years. “

Jerri Vinton, Spring Hill, FL

“Some time ago I heard about Audibel hearing aids. I previously had hearing aids but was not pleased with them. Your Audibel Representative was kind and listened to my hearing problem and with due diligence-coupled with the Audibel hearing devices-solved my problem. I’ve been pleased with them and especially with the assistance from the staff.”

George Hickmann, So. Pasadena, FL

“It is with profound joy, that I express my satisfaction with Audibel hearing aids! Being able to hear all the subtle sounds of nature and everyday life is simply wonderful. My Tinnitus (ringing in my ears) has also notibly improved. Just not having to ask the question “can you repeat that?” is a blessing. All those little sounds like the clicking of the car’s turn signal and beeps our appliances make. Oh, these hearing aids are treasures. I never take them out except to sleep and shower!”

Ed Lannon, St. Petersburg, FL

For many years my husband missed out on a lot of things.He wasn’t able to hear the message the preacher was giving. At the theatre he had to wear the “hearing impaired headphones”. I also had to help him out when we went out to eat at restaurants or simply trying to communicate. All of this took place because we weren’t able to afford new hearing aids. One unexpected day, my husband decided to take his old hearing aids to see if they could be fixed. Unfortunately they couldn’t. Then he had a hearing test done. We explained to the tech what our financial situation was, she stepped out of the room and made sure we didn’t leave until we had worked something out. She had spoken with the owner. Needless to say I was very touched. My husband got hearing aids! Thanks to Mr. Wheeler for such a blessing! We will be eternally grateful. Now, my husband can enjoy the beautiful songs of birds, singing, and so much more. Your staff was amazing also, they waited for me to end my day at work so that I could be able to come in. Thanks again for such a beautiful blessing!


Murielle Dorf has been a patient here at Audibel since 2009 and has had multiple sets of different aids. She walked into the office recently because she was having some issues with her aid, Ron took her back, fixed her issue and Murielle walked out telling us “We made her day!”

“I thought I was too old to benefit, but with the patience and professional work of Keith I got fitted perfectly. You’re never too old, just act in time.”

Ann R. Nichols, St. Petersburg, FL

Lawrence Tidswell was referred by a friend and came in for his first appointment back in February because he knew his hearing was getting worse. Lawrence and his wife Kim live in Spain but stay down here in Florida a couple months out of the year. He came in recently saying his aid wasn’t working, a few adjustments later he walked out with his aid working and happy as can be.

Lawrence Tidswell

“I am extremely pleased with my Audibel hearing aids! I was experiencing problems with TV audio and social conversations prior. Now- nothing escapes my ears! Thank you, Audibel.”

Betty Lyon

“Since I got my new hearing aids from Audibel Hearing Center I was able to go to one of my favorite social events, Comicon, and for the first time I was actually able to interact with all of the different characters! I couldn’t be more pleased with my new Audibel hearing aids and the staff at the Spring Hill locations.”

Elaine Post

“When I first started my better hearing journey 3 years ago, I went with another manufacturer. With off and on use of their product, I became discouraged. I reached out to Brad Wagner at the Port Charlotte, FL Audibel. I am now able to hear voices clearly in a noisy environment without having to turn the hearing aids up or down. I’m overwhelmed with joy with my Audibel hearing aids. They have given me back my communication. Kudos!”

Ruth Levy, Port Charlotte, FL

“I didn’t realize how poorly I was hearing until I started wearing Audibel aids. I love them and they have made a big difference in my everyday life. The whole experience has been very pleasant and professional, from the first contact on. Everything was thoroughly explained from the new aids to the pricing and warranties. A very satisfied customer who is a long time hearing aid wearer.”

Helen Morse

“I am so glad I have Audibel Hearing Aids. I now know I have missed a lot by not hearing what goes on. I would recommend them to anyone and I’m very pleased with the ongoing help with any questions or concerns.”

Evelyn Straughn

“The Audibel hearing aid, certainly made a difference. When the objective is to be able to hear well. What I have experienced is the joy of being able to hear certain words and expressions that I had struggled with in the past. With my new hearing aid, there is no struggling. I can now hear EVERYTHING!”

Lazlo Piringer

“I’ve had hearing aids for at least 20 years. I’ve enjoyed my Audibel hearing aids very much and the special service by my hearing professional Keith Stegbauer. If you need help call Keith!”

Helen H.

“When I came into Audibel I fully expected to be disappointed again. I have spent the last 5 yrs trying to get help for my hearing loss, and was just given prescriptions, told it was this problem or that problem, but ultimately no help and needless to say complete frustration, disappointment and feelings of helplessness. I saw a TV advertisement about Audibel and asked myself “what do I have to lose?” I didn’t expect any kind of help nor did I expect any miracles. But a miracle is what I received! Mr. Stegbauer’s specialist in training, Gina Ruccione, told me that Mr. Stegbauer is a miracle worker. I thought to myself “right”. Well let me tell you, his/their professionalism, kindness, patience, and sense of humor, along with his/their wanting to do everything possible to help me was amazing. Having the ability to hear what I’ve been missing has so changed my life. I thank Mr. Stegbauer, Gina, and Lynne, along with Audibel for this life changing experience! Thank you!!”

Shirley Moffatt

“I am so completely satisfied with all aspects of my association with Audibel. Beginning with the friendly service from the front desk, to the professionalism in the overwhelming examination equipment room. My guitar sounds better to me than it ever has. Most importantly my social life has improved especially with being able to converse with my wife.”

Albert Marcantonio

“I just want to thank you and your staff for the fine work that you all do. You are very understanding and patient. I enjoy visiting your office.”

Carol Fisher

“I have had a hearing aid for close to 2 years now and it is amazing the difference it has made. The staff at the Brandon office are wonderful people and the Specialist is very attentive to your hearing needs. My hearing aid is so comfortable that I forget I have it on. Very pleased all around.”

Ann Thomas, Brandon

“Not realizing how inadequate my hearing loss was; it was a total surprise as to what I was missing. Good product & easy to maintain. There was a whole world of sound that was gone. Having that back is most appreciated.”

Carl Bradshaw, St. Petersburg

“I first began wearing Audibel hearing aids when I was a professor and traveled internationally to teach. Audibel provided me an international number and representatives in many nations to help me if I encountered issues while travelling and teaching abroad. I have found all staff members to be helpful and accommodating. I am currently retired and my wife and I live in St. Petersburg. Our newest Audibel representative is Rhonda. She not only is professional and pleasant, but also very thorough in her examinations and tests and in her explanations to us. She has helped us understand what my exact hearing loss is, how it affects us and how the hearing aids can help, not to mention possible adverse issues that may occur from not wearing my hearing aids. She is a real blessing and I recommend her highly.”

James Hoyt, Pasadena

“To Audibel: I am writing to you to express my appreciation for excellent customer service which I received from Audibel. The staff was very warm and accommodating yet very professional in every way. A special thank you to Rhonda Smith for all her help. My new hearing aids have made a great and wonderful change in my life. I am so grateful to you all.”

Paul Kurmay, Pasadena

“When my wife ordered me to come to Audibel to get aids I fought her at every turn. Finally I gave in and lucky I did! The aids have been a godsend for me! They help so much and I cannot go without them. Brandon Audibel and Mr. Seaver have been world class to me in their professionalism and service!”

Steve Peet, Brandon

“Both my husband, Al and I had a very thorough hearing test with Ashley Smiles at the Palm Harbor Audibel Center. We are both happy that we went ahead with the purchase of hearing aids. Both the attention and service at the office has been wonderful. We certainly recommend them.”

Maryann and Al Bailey, Palm Harbor

“‘What?’ – That is how I used to respond to questions. As frustrating as it was for me, it was exasperating for those, especially my spouse, who constantly had to repeat himself. I can’t express how happy I am that I finally got Audibel hearing aids. It was amazing to actually hear the first time exactly and clearly what was being said. When I got home, my spouse could not believe that I’d done it. He walked to different areas of our home to test me. And, I could hear every single word! Both of us are so overjoyed with my new ability. Now our conversations are so much more enjoyable and easier. I no longer need to concentrate or focus on people’s mouths to get what they are saying. And “What?” is no longer my first response.”

Ron Hunter

“My new customized hearing aids are making my life more enjoyable. I’ve been an Audibel patient for several years. Coming from Michigan for the winter season, it only made sense to visit an Audibel Hearing Center here in Florida when I needed new ones. Joe Melchiorre’s professional service helped me make my choice easy. His courteous demeanor, flexible appointment hours made it convenient and pleasurable. Rachel is a valuable asset to the office. She answered all my clerical questions and did all the paper work, also called to confirm appointments. Her pleasant attitude and smiling face are always welcoming. I don’t want to ever be without my Audibel hearing aids~They are the best!!!”

Virginia Voight

Finally realizing I needed help with my hearing, I made an appointment with Audibel. Ashely couldn’t have been more helpful. She explained everything. I made my decision and couldn’t be more pleased. I no longer have to guess what is being said. I can hear clearly again. Thank you.

Lois Charette

Like most people, I waited too long to admit that I had a hearing problem. But finally I did the research and about a year ago went to Audibel. I choose the facility located at 3534 Clark Rd., Sarasota, FL 34231.

Now I do not have to ask my wife or friends to repeat what they say nearly as often. Before it was difficult to participate in the conversation when out with friends at a restaurant – the background noise would drown out my ability to hear what was being said. I would simply sit there and smile a lot (which I do not do well). It was really embarrassing to answer a question that you thought you heard someone as you, only to find out that they had asked you something completely different! There is a special setting that filters out most of the unwanted background noise which makes being in a crowd enjoyable again. I could go on and on with specifics, but the bottom line is that my hearing aids that do a credible job and other people that make it happen. I can only speak when they develop a hearing deficiency. Maybe there are other hearing aids that do a credible job and other people that make it happen. I can only speak to the professional service and attention that one receives from Kevin Wagner and his office assistant, Sharon. Audibel’s products have so many different settings available and Kevin knows how to tailor them to each customer’s individual needs. The benefits continue to get better as I return for a periodic maintenance and fine tuning.

If you suffer with a hearing loss, do yourself a favor and call Sharon and make an appointment to see Kevin.

Dennis Bauman

My new Audibel hearing aids are beautiful and wonderful! I can hardly feel them and can’t even see them! Once you get use to them they are easy to put in. It’s almost like my own normal hearing is back!

Dorothy Kenesie

“A year ago when my friends & relatives told me I needed hearing aids, I was in denial. Then I began missing instructions in meetings, church, etc. After shopping around, Audibel was my choice. I was nervous about the exam, but the specialist, Anthony Carbone changed my fright. He is the best of the best! I love my Audibel hearing aids. They are small, comfortable, adjustable & let me know when I need batteries. I would highly recommend Audibel. Many thanks to Anthony & Audibel for improving my quality of life.”

Catherine Brownell

“I have worn hearing aids since I was 32. I have had many brands among which were Miracle Ear, Siemens & Beltone. I am aware of what a hearing aid is supposed to do. I have a severe loss & I am aware of it. I have been told my loss is so severe that there is not anything that can be done. However, since I have been to Audibel & especially working with Tony Carbone, I didn’t realize how severe my loss was. He has helped & encouraged me & makes me feel like I am the only one on his agenda. I know if it isn’t right all I have to do is tell him what is wrong & right away starts working on the problem. I can only have good things to say about Audibel and the way they perform. And believe me, after all of the hearing aids I have had, I am well qualified & Tony is the BEST!”

Sandra Woodward

“I visited the office for hearing test I already knew there was a problem, and I was right! I failed the test! Tried going for a loan to purchase devices I needed and was denied the loan. With no other option to pay I had to decline getting the hearing aids. A week later Rebecca called that her boss was going to try to help a few patients that were denied loans. I though that was great that he would do that. I am waiting to hear when this will be. Great company, test were done efficiently and effectively. Anyone having a problem hearing, I recommend Audibel of Winter Haven.”

Carol Rose

“My husband kept telling me I needed to get my ears checked, I always leaned forward and tilted my head saying ‘pardon me’ to people. We seen Audibel’s advertisement in the Ledger, we went there and has a complete hearing test by the technician Rebecca. She called me in a week ans said my hearing aids were in. I could hear so good! And told my husband a few days later I LOVE MY HEARING AIDS. The receptionist and Rebecca were so kind & patient. I’m so happy we saw the advertisement. Sincerely, LeLani Carr”

LeLani Carr

“I am very pleased with my Audibel Hearing Girl. It is a blessing to be able to hear what is going on around me. I also appreciate the ability to adjust the sound due to my environment. They are very comfortable. I am not aware of their presence when I have them on. Even though I wear my hair short; they are not noticeable to the people around me. The staff at this office is superior, friendly, and very kind; (Rebecca and Jamie). I even told Rebecca that I would like to come to work with them and tell everyone I wear an Audibel Hearing Aid and I am very happy with it. I have recommended your Winter Haven Office to several people I have met who are in need of a hearing aid.”

Jonnie JoAnne Hoblit

“I’m very happy with my hearing aids. The service has been very amazing and the personnel are very nice and helpful. Every question I have had has been answered very clearly. I highly recommend Audibel for your hearing needs.”

Carl Weidner

“I like my hearing aids very much. And I can now hear my church members very well and my eight foot preacher!”

Edward McIntyre

“I don’t know why I waited so long to go for a hearing test. I love them because: they are very small (fit inside my ears, can’t be seen). I love and use the remote control; I can raise and lower sound, mute. I have a special memory for TV. I can block background noise and it fits in my bag (smaller than a cell phone)! Joe listened to me carefully and solved my problems I had. He showed me how to change batteries and keep them clean, easy left and right- no mix ups. Any time I forgot how to use I just push the house button and it goes back to normal. Thank you Audibel and Joe. You’ve made me life a little easier.”

Nancy Mackay

“To begin with, Laura was very courteous, very on the spot once she knew what I needed. She successfully did her job and I’m very happy with my hearing aid.”

Robert Canalejo

“I was fit with the Audibel Power Plus hearing aids. Laura has worked with me to make sure I get the most hearing and satisfaction I can. I tell you these are the greatest hearing aids I have ever had. I have been wearing hearing aids since I was 14 years old and now I am 79 years old. Every time something new comes out, Laura always lets me know so I can come in and see what it does for me. This time it was FANTASTIC. No matter where I am, I can hear 99% of the conversation and I am so very, very happy. Also I would like to tell you that Laura is a caring and understanding person and I have told many people how great the hearing aid is, in hope that it could help someone else.”

Beverly Copeland

“When I first came to Audibel, I told Laura I did not need hearing aids, and I was just there to make my family happy. Now the first thing I do in the morning is put my hearing aids in, and they stay in until I go to bed at night. The hearing aids have made such a difference in my life because I can hear everything my family and friends say to me. I am so happy and grateful for my hearing aids.”

Sharon Payne

“I have been a patient of Audibel’s Britton Plaza office for over 15 years. I have always been able to be seen immediately (if I should have a problem) and routinely for updates and adjustments when needed. The personnel at the office have always been extremely considerate, helpful, and friendly, not to mention having the latest updates on hearing problems and how to solve them. The entire staff is committed to providing service in the most caring, nurturing and helpful manner. I can always reply on the dependability of my hearing aids and the attention my problems require.”

Billye Harden

“I was getting ready to come in for a check up and I couldn’t wait to finish washing and getting my hair done to put my new hearing aids in. They perk me right up! I am very happy and I only wish I got them sooner!”

Linda Franks, North Tampa, FL

“This is what it’s all about. Happy Hearing. Mom can finally hear!”

Minako Moore and daughter

“My life was getting very difficult as my hearing got worse and worse. Even my relationships with people were suffering. My friends thought of me as rude because of me not responding to what they were saying. Once I got my Audibel hearing aids, life changed. I felt like I was once more a part of what was going on around me. Doctors say that when you can’t hear, your brain goes to sleep. My brain is now awake and life is once again terrific. Maybe other aids can do the same but the service I get from the hearing specialist is second to none. Thank you Audibel!”

Jay Sohow, Sun City, FL

“Gina is a real strong asset for the Audibel Company. I have had a problem with a pair of new hearing aids for 3 or 4 months. She worked with me and we got my hearing aids worked out. If not for her personal attention, I would not still be with Audibel.”

Robert Solano

“I suspected I had a hearing problem and finally decided to find out for sure. I made an appointment for a free hearing test with a company I saw on Facebook. Then, because a friend recommended them, I also made an appointment with Audibel. I kept both appointments, trying to get a feel for how these companies present their products to their customers. The difference between the two was incredible. For one thing, Audibel’s testing was much more thorough and the hearing specialist actually fitted me with free hearing aids to try at home for a few days. The first thing I noticed leaving the office was birds singing. I realized I hadn’t been hearing their songs until I got the test hearing aids. When I got home I had to tell my wife I was wearing hearing aids because she didn’t notice them. The same thing happened when my kids tried to figure out what was new with Dad! After a few days, I returned to the Audibel office to actually decide which type of hearing aid to purchase. I never felt pressured and all my questions were answered in a friendly and professional manner. I’ve been wearing them for a little over a month and am extremely pleased. The tiny hearing aids have become part of me for the 10-12 hours I use them every day. I don’t even notice I have them on and most people have no idea I wear hearing aids unless I bring it up. I have surprised many friends this way. I ran into a neighbor recently and told her about my experience with Audibel. She laughed and told me she too had purchased hearing aids from Audibel about a year ago and loves them. She wouldn’t go anywhere else. We both recommend Audibel wholeheartedly.”

Larry Kellogg

“My Audibel hearing aids are amazing. They are lightweight, easy to clean and is just the right size for my ear. They are so comfortable to wear that I sometimes forget that I’m wearing a hearing aid. They were surprisingly affordable. The service has been excellent. The staff is friendly, helpful and supportive. If you require a hearing aid, I strongly suggest that you try Audibel Hearing Center.”

Barbara K. Willis

“Audibel has allowed me to continue enjoying hearing everything that I was always able to hear in the past. Because in spite of losing 30% of my hearing, through Audibel technology I don’t have to miss out on the enjoyment of healthy hearing. The personnel are so friendly and helpful. I would recommend Audibel to anyone looking for a Rewarding Experience, Easy, Affordable and Hassle FREE. Thanks Audibel!”

Terry Muse

“Audibel hearing aids are the best ones I have used in 21 years. There is more clarity in the sound and I never thought that I can ever hear better. I will recommend Audibel Hearing aids to anyone who may need them!”

Ben Culabutan, St. Petersburg, FL
