Overview

The HD230 is a mid-range hearing aid ideally suited for those with mild to moderate hearing loss. It comes with a no-nonsense push-button to change between 3 volume levels. 

  • Setting 1 is set 2dB softer than the software’s recommendation for a mild to moderate loss to give a softer option on start up.
  • Setting 2 is as per a mild to moderate recommendation
  • Setting 3 is 3dB louder than setting 2. 
 Our standard setting is suitable for mild to moderate, high-frequency, hearing loss only. Noise reduction processing is constantly active, and a ‘feedback shield’ helps to keep unwanted whistling to a minimum. A low battery warning will sound to alert the wearer to change batteries. 
    Key Features

    Looks

    The HD230 is developed to sit snugly within the average adult sized ear canal. Ready to be fitted at home straight-away without the need for an ear impression. If however, you experience discomfort or unwanted feedback, it comes supplied with a number of different silicone fitting tips (or domes) for an improved fit. 


    The body (shell) of the HD230 is beige coloured. Right sided HD230s have red printing on the shell. Left sided HD230s have blue printing. 


    A thin, short pull cord attached to the outer side of the hearing aid makes removing the HD230 a simple task.

    How to buy

    Not sure about buying a hearing aid online? We keep the process straight-forward, and here's what happens:

    Select which ear you wish to wear the hearing aid on (left / right / both) and add to basket. Check-out and purchase with Visa / Mastercard or PayPal. Your order will be sent directly to you via courier from our UK warehouse for a 30 day home trial. Everything you need to try the aid for this period is included.


    Many customers have a copy of their audiogram (hearing test result on a graph) and will email us a copy before ordering - audiology@hearingdirect.com.

    If the hearing aid is appropriate for the hearing loss, we use the audiogram results to program the initial settings of the hearing aid.  

    Dont worry if an audiogram is not available; you can begin with our standard setting – geared to suit a mild to moderate, mainly high frequency hearing loss. This is the type of hearing loss we commonly see in those with age-related or noise-induced hearing losses.  

    Another option is to complete the online hearing check, which, if completed as instructed, gives a reasonable estimate of someone’s middle and high frequency hearing: https://www.hearingdirect.com/pages/hearing-test

    If you wish for your online hearing check result to be used with your order you will need to let us know before or just after your order is placed.


    Please talk to us if you need anything else regarding the set up further customised. We are real people, and would love to help provide the best possible starting point for you.
     

    Once you've received the hearing aid it's a case of trying out the physical fit and the sound. If you need any adjustments, we can arrange for a reprogrammed unit to be sent in exchange, provided the original is first returned to our US returns facility within the first 30 days.  

    If the sound or physical fit of the product is not to your satisfaction, our 30 day money back guarantee is a no quibble policy.

    FAQs

    How do I use the HD230?


    How do I know if it will fit my ear?

    The manufacturer of the HD230 took a large sample of men and women’s ear canals into account to try to find the best average fitting, suitable for as many people as possible. We cant give a guaranteed 100% fit result for all ear canals, but that’s why our 30 day return period allows for a trial in your own ear, in the comfort of your own home.

    What if it doesn't work for me?

    If anything about the physical fitting or sound is not to your liking, you can return the HD230 for a full refund within the first 30 days of receipt. Please do contact us to see if another product may be better suited, and a further 30 day trial with another product can be arranged.

    Should I get one or two?

    If an evaluation by a hearing professional indicates that you have hearing loss in both ears, and especially where the degree of loss is similar, two hearing aids are usually recommended.


    While it may be tempting to try to limit the cost by going with a single hearing aid, wearing just one hearing aid may not give you maximum benefit in some difficult listening situations.

    How do I know if the sound will be right for me?

    If you have a copy of a hearing test available you can send it to us and we can confirm if the HD230 can cover your hearing loss. If you order without providing a hearing test result, you will be trying out its standard settings, which cater for mild to moderate, mainly high frequency hearing loss. Free fine tuning is also available for the life of the product if needed.

    How much will it cost to run the HD230?

    The following items will need to be replaced on the HD230:

    • Battery: budget 6 batteries per month (6 batteries in a pack).
    • Dome: if you choose to use a dome it will need changing every 2-3 months on average.
    • Wax guard: varies greatly person to person - average change once every 3 weeks (5 Wax guards in a pack).


    How do I turn the HD230 on/off?

    No on/off switch, just insert battery, close/open battery door

    How do I change the volume?

    Use the small push button next to the battery door. The HD230 always starts up in setting 1 - the softest volume. Press the button down hard for at least 1 second once to change to setting 2. (You will hear 2 beeps). Press again once for setting 3 - the loudest option. To have this further adjusted, we can do a free fine tuning for you.
