More on MD Hearing’s Models

The Air

This model is MD Hearing’s best seller. These hearing aids are virtually invisible while still packing the punch of a quality hearing aid. The MD Hearing Air features high-quality sound and advanced digital technology which is ideal for older adults who spend time in loud environments. Included is a free protection plan and extra batteries.

The Volt+

This model is MD Hearing’s latest release and is their first rechargeable hearing aid. The battery takes approximately 3-3.5 hours for a full charge which, on average, lasts 24-30 hours. The MD Hearing Volt+ features two directional microphones which help offer a more pleasurable listening experience by distinguishing voice from background noise.

The Core

This model is MD Hearing’s “smart” model—it focuses on the sounds the wearer wants to hear by automatically detecting and adjusting to surrounding noise. This device is also Bluetooth-enabled so you can pair the hearing aids with your smartphone and manage them through the MD Hearing app. The app also makes it possible for the wearer to adjust the MD Hearing’s Core customized noise reduction and settings to each ear individually.

MD Hearing Warranty

All MD Hearing devices come with a 90-day manufacturer’s warranty which covers any malfunctions or defective parts. The warranty begins from the date the customer receives their hearing aids. MD Hearing will repair or replace the hearing instruments at no cost to their customers. 

The MDShield Protection Plan is also available at an additional cost. This covers any type of accidental damage, such as water exposure, battery corrosion, or breakage. The MDShield Protection Plan costs $9.99 a month for the Air and Volt models, and $14.99 for the Core. Keep in mind that it doesn’t cover the loss or theft of the hearing aids. 

MD Hearing Service Offering

MD Hearing provides medical-grade hearing aids that are registered with the FDA. Their online shopping platform makes the purchase process relatively easy, and the free delivery is a great bonus. MD Hearing offers a 45-day trial period with every purchase, during which the hearing aids can be returned for a full refund. They also have a dedicated support team of hearing instrument specialists who assist customers as needed via phone or email.

In addition to the hearing aids, MD Hearing has a free online hearing test that was designed by audiologists, ENT doctors, hearing aid specialists, and sound engineers you can take right from home. You get your results instantly and the test takes less than 8 minutes. You can also email MD Hearing’s in-house audiologist who will make recommendations based on the results of your hearing test.
