I had been thinking about purchasing hearing aids but did not want to spend thousands of dollars. I saw the ads for MDHearingAid and the price they advertised was in my price range. I read the reviews on these hearing aids and decided to take a chance. I ordered them and the process was very easy. I was anxious to get them and try them and I didn't have to wait long. They were here in approximately 1 week. The directions were simple and I began wearing them right away. After experimenting with the volume and different settings I found the best selections for my needs. I can now hear my wife speaking to me with no problem at all and the tv does not have to be blasting for me to hear it. I am very pleased with my purchase and encourage anyone who is thinking about buying hearing aids to give MDHearingAid a chance. They offer a 45 day full refund so you have nothing to lose!
The service department staff are the greatest. They answered my question in full. They guided me through a series of tests trying to find a solution to the issue I was having. While we were not successful in taking care of the issue with these tests, they gave me all the return info I needed to return my aid to them. When it was all said and done they sent me a new aid at a minimum cost. I am well pleased with MDHearingAid.
I bought their lowest priced hearing aid (AIR) and it is a complete disaster. I have been using hearing aids for over 20 years and this is by far the worst one I have ever encountered. First: it is difficult to place in your ear. Second: it emits a loud electronic noise when you are trying to fit it in your ear. Third: sometimes it works and sometimes it does not. They try to cajole you into buying "insurance" for these hearing aids, but the cost of the insurance is equal to more than what a new one would be. And the other completely annoying feature of this company is that, even though I have notified them at least six times, they will not stop sending you emails. Once you are on their list there is no way you can stop their barrage of junk email.
Good hearing aid for the money. Our insurance co-pay was ridiculous, but MDHearing Volt makes it possible for my husband to participate in “life” again. Customer service also quickly resolved any issues.
These hearing aids are worth the money. First time trying OTC hearing aids. Their customer service is the best. I had a problem of whistling if I covered my ear or made other movements, I ordered the closed tips and that helped but not completely. Customer service sent a variety of ear tips to try, no charge!
Bought 2 hearing aids for my 89 year old Mom and they helped her hear, but she had problems using the charger; she complained that the hearing aids hurt her ears; and she had a hard time putting on the hearing aids. I feel most problems were only her being 89 and not liking change. I contacted MD Hearing during the look and see period of 45 days and they graciously accepted our return and gave back every cent we had paid. This was extraordinary in our business world today, to do what you say you will do without hassle. Thanks MD Hearing..
Although I upgraded from the Volt Hearing Aid model to the Core, I can recommend the Volt very highly as far as the clarity and sound features are. I had no problems getting the aids to working and could change the setting as I deemed necessary. If I had a complaint it would be the Volt hearing aids were a bit bulky and did not fit comfortable behind my ears. That is the reason I chose to upgrade my hearing aids to a set that are slightly smaller. Working with the customer service representatives at MDHearing Aids was very professional and I was treated with the greatest of respect.
Tried Miracle Ear and Beltone. Both gave me back my money and said we can't fit you.. They were (over 1000 each). This really works for me. Tried many others. Tried the non medical ones in desperation also... You ARE THE best of them All
Great aids for the price. Sound quality is excellent. Replacement parts are overpriced though. Ear tube attachment could be easily re-engineered to prevent cross threading. Nice to hear again. Highly recommend.
I can hear again. Cost-wise MDHearing is much less than traditional hearing aids, but is still a hearing aid, not a hearing amplifier. I purchased the rechargeable units. The pair cost me $600. I could not afford the $1500 per ear that "normal" hearing aids cost for their base lines. 2 thumbs up for MDHearing Aids.
This MD hearing aid is equal to the hearing aid store $5000 plus hearing aids. I think there may be 1 or 2 hearing aid manufacturers making hearing aids for all companies, that's the reason why they are all so similar except for price so why pay $5000. Plus when the quality is all the same.
I sent back the hearing aids because they didn’t feel right for me. But they were okay and comfortable. I even tried some different tips on them, but after a while, I kept them off more than I had them on. Then I thought, I’m not gonna buy hearing aids if I’m not gonna wear them all the time. I had tried a pair before MDHearingAid. It had a Bluetooth effect and they were really nice. I liked them but they were way expensive. So I didn’t go with them either. I have a little bit of a hearing loss, but it’s not that bad. I need a hearing aid but I’m not gonna wear them until I really know I have to absolutely wear them to hear.
The hearing aids work good. MDHearingsAids call it the VOLT, which is the rechargeable stuff. I had some others and I finally just quit using them. I thought my hearing was getting bad enough that I wasn't having something strong enough, but these ones are on a fairly low setting and they're doing fine. I'm very impressed with them. The earpieces that came with them fit wonderfully. They're better than I imagined.
The MDHearingAid gentleman I talked to explained everything to me and told me to give him a call if I had any problems. I could afford to buy MDHearingAid, which was mostly why I got it. I was also satisfied that I had the opportunity to buy it and if I didn’t like it, I could send it back. It's comfortable when you put it in and doesn't bother you. I like it better than the ones that the doctors put in my ears.
I could hear people, but I couldn’t understand what they were saying. If I have the hearing aid in, I can hear everything that there is. But I don’t wear it very much anymore because I hear too much. It’s hard to get it adjusted to where you can get relaxed with it. I can hardly hear anything out of my right ear. But if I have a hearing aid in my left ear, I hear everything that’s behind me and everything that’s in front of me. However, I hear it all at the same time and if I turn it down, I can hardly hear anything behind me. Otherwise, it works pretty well as long as nobody else is talking.
I couldn’t hear too good and called MDHearingAid to try them out. I have to keep changing the hearing aid to the right sound. When I go to church and the music gets higher, I turn them down a little bit. Sometimes when I pull to take the hearing aids out, the end of the little tube that goes to my ear stays in my ear.
MDHearingAid seemed to be the best deal. When I was out and about and wearing the hearing aid, it made a world of difference. When people talk low, I can hear them now and the background noise isn't like it used to be. It’s hard to get them to fit on right to get them comfortable. Some of the other companies had different-sized earplugs and MDHearingAids didn't. That could’ve made a big difference. Other than that, they work good for me and it has been an all-the-way good experience. If I'd have any problems, they followed up which I was very pleased with.
I was wearing hearing aids but lost one of them. It was $1,500 just for one so when I saw MDHearingAid had a special on, I thought I’d try it. I got the advertisement through the mail and I filled it out. I bought the one that sold for 599, which was half-price. With it, I can hear better. However, its comfort is fair. Sometimes, it's comfortable but sometimes, it's not. Sometimes, I have to take it out and scratch my ears. It's easy to charge though. I'd tell others to give MDHearingAid a try.
I’ve been a long-time hearing aid user for years. I’ve gone through Costco and they cost too much. I’ve also tried some other providers before and price was a thing. Then, I went with MD because of price. They also advertised good features and all the rest of it. I dealt with them online during my purchase and when I received the hearing aids, they work well. They are quite good but God knows how long they’ll last because hearing aids don’t last anyway. So, you have to wind up replacing and replacing them.
MDHearingAid was advertised in our local paper here at a certain price. Beforehand, I ordered them a year ago and it was 6,000 and something. I sent them back. But I saw this ad here in Rockaway and it said 600 and buy one free. I paid the 600 and I have them here. The price was a big difference. I see they’re down to 200 and something. You have to just buy them. They’re probably more money than what they’re advertising them for. I thought they were for 200 but when I ordered them, they were 600. But I was satisfied with the price. I know people had paid 8,000 for them.
I paid them one time right away over the bank because it’s better for me to pay it and be done with it. I wear my hearing aids at night when I’m watching TV so I don’t have to have it loud. They seem to be working for what I need them for. I go to church and I can hear the priest then. Other than that, I don’t wear them all the time because I’m out gardening. I don’t abuse them. So far, my aids are still all right. The only thing is keeping them behind your ears. You have to know how to do it and to keep them propped up there.
I’ve been struggling with my hearing for more than several years and I reached a point where it felt like I needed some assistance, but everything that I had seen with standard hearing aids didn’t give me much confidence in them. I also went to an audiologist then I saw an ad for MDHearingAid and thought it was a price I could afford. I took the chance on them and I was very pleased with their sales staff. I talked to them, and we started discussing the ad, then he made the comment that I might be interested in their newer hearing aids that have rechargeable batteries.
I thought about it, and we talked a bit further, and I decided to go with it. He was very straightforward and honest. He was not overly aggressive, and he allowed me to have time to think about it. I got two hearing aids that go in the ear for $600. There hasn’t been any big change, but I hear some things with the television, the conversations, a little better than what I did before. Beyond that, I have noticed sounds that I haven’t heard before. Drop a fork on the floor and I hear the clink, tink and tingle that I never heard before.
The hearing aid for the left ear does not seem to be working even at level 4. The right hearing does not increase my hearing level as expected. Need to get these problems resolved as soon as possible. Thank you.
Only need for right ear. It works well at a volume of 2.5 and program 2. I would like to see the ear pods last longer or at least lower cost. On the up side the batteries seem to last well and are relatively inexpensive. Overall very satisfied.
At first it seemed to work fine, still had trouble hearing certain tones. Received help from customer service, helped with issue. At 30 day mark one would not change modes had to shut off and put on again to change after time it would sound like I was in tunnel. Had to keep shutting on and off. Returned due to feeling it it broke so fast how would it do after time.
I am pleased with MD aids!!!! Had 4 expensive sets, which I couldn't hear too good. So I got these to try, very happy I can hear, sometimes on the phone I ask what was said.. Otherwise VERY HAPPY!
Hearing aids noise level. First, I want to compliment your order department. They are the best. My problem was the hearing aids kept on fading in and out while watching TV. I was sent several sets of ear plugs and tried several types but the problem remained. I returned them on 4/2/20 to your Southfield. Mi. address.
We were going through a magazine and saw MDHearingAid. It looked pretty good so we pursued it and ordered hearing aids. I had two short leads on MDHearingAid. Then I called them up and ordered a longer set of leads, the part that goes into the ears. The longer ones work a lot better and I'm getting along with them okay. The customer service was perfect too. They agreed with me and said there would be no charge. We're happy with them.
I started to get the best hearing aids but I just couldn't afford it. I had a friend of mine that had MDHearingAid. Also, my regular doctor got some for his mother and recommended them. So far, they have been good. Although I don't wear them all the time, I really need it at certain times instead of turning up the TV too loud. Also, if I go somewhere, I usually put them in.
When I first started wearing them, it kinda made my ears a little bit sore from putting them in and taking them out. However, the only real problem that I have with them is the distinction when there are several people talking. I have to concentrate more, but I'm not ready to send them back yet. It's a little better than just reading their lips. I'm 76 so it's better than nothing and it's also better than cheap hearing aids. They work better when there's not a lot of people talking, like at church. When I'm riding in the car or driving, I have to turn them off because they just make the road noise a lot louder. Even with the radio on, everything is loud. It's better to just reach back and turn it to off. We got a fairly new car but the road noise is still kinda irritating.
When I called MDHearingAid, the guy told me there was a little bit better one for a few more dollars and that’s the one I went with. It's the first hearing aids I ever had and it works well. It's got four settings on it and I like that. When I'm driving or when I'm in a restaurant, I can cut out a lot of background noise and I can hear much better. It's a good thing. There could be better ones but for me, this works just fine.
I was having problems with my original prescription hearing aids, and they weren’t working very well. I thought I might as well try MDHearingAid and after I received them, they didn't work badly at all, with the exception that the charging situation on one of them is not good. It was beginning to lose its power very quickly. The other one is fine, but I put them aside and forgot about them. I’ve told people about them, that it depends on everybody’s hearing. Although it's not as good as my original hearing aids, which is comfy, it has four different settings. I can set it individually to what worked enough for me and I like that. It works out very well for my hearing and I can manage with those throughout the day.
They were less expensive than what I had to pay before and I wanted try them. They were different than what I had before though. I hear more background noise. My other ones had a remote and I could make it louder or softer. I had more options. I could also take away the background noise if I wanted to do so and I hear more people if they were talking. That would be a nice plus. Still, I like the way it fits like the others did.
