LAST UPDATED: June 23rd, 2021

MDHearingAid believes that choosing the right hearing aid should be simple, convenient, and affordable. A proud Midwestern company, MDHearingAid has provided affordable hearing devices for over a decade to more than 500,000 Americans. 

MDHearingAid's are high-quality, FDA-registered medical devices programmed to the highest standards and tested by an in-house team of audiologists and hearing professionals. 

Top Ranked Companies


The Good

  • Free Online Hearing Test
  • High Quality Hearing Aids
  • Hearing Aid Selection
  • 45-Day Risk-Free Trial
  • Affordability
  • Financing Available Through Affirm

Free Online Hearing Test

If you want to see if MDHearingAids are right for you, we recommend visiting the company's website and taking the free hearing test. 

MDHearingAid partnered with several professional audio engineers to develop the online test. The test should only take around 10 minutes to complete and is designed to work with headphones.

High Quality Hearing Aids

To be clear, MDHearingAid doesn't just sell high quality hearing aids; its products are medical-grade hearing devices. 

MDHearingAid has met all the FDA's regulatory requirements — to sell and distribute Class I medical devices. All of MDHearingAid's devices are Class I medical devices.

MDHearingAid devices are not personal sound amplification products or PSAPs (which are not regulated by the FDA). PSAPs are simply intended to amplify environmental sounds for non-hearing impaired consumers and in specific situations — for example, a lecture where the speaker is far away.

Hearing Aid Selection

MDHearingAid currently sells three hearing aid devices: Air, Volt+, and Core.

The Air has improved noise reduction, four sound settings and is great for noisy environments. 

MDHearingAid's most popular model is the Volt+. This device features a rechargeable battery, water-resistant coating, two-directional microphones, and advanced feedback cancellation technology.  

Although you can't customize the hearing aid itself, the Core hearing device lets you customize your hearing experience. The Core is a Bluetooth-enabled hearing aid that connects to your smartphone or tablet. The app allows you to tweak the sounds you want to hear — and the ones you don't. The Core also features four audio settings, two-directional microphones, and no feedback cancellation technology. 

45-Day Risk-Free Trial

If you purchase a hearing aid from MDHearingAid and aren't satisfied, you have 45 days (from the date of purchase) to return it for a full refund. 

The company does ask consumers to try out their new hearing aid for at least 21 days. MDHearingAid explains, "This amount of time (21 days) is recommended because several medical studies have shown that our brains need about three weeks to adjust to new hearing aids."

That said, there is no minimal trial period — meaning you can return your hearing aids anytime within 45 days. 

Many hearing aid dispensaries only give customers 30 days to return their device, so we appreciate the extra 15 days MDHearingAid gives consumers. 

Remember that if you plan on returning a hearing aid, you must have a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) number. If you don't, you'll be charged a 20 percent No-RMA fee. 

Additionally, you cannot return your hearing aid after the 45-day trial period. 


Many people find themselves paying thousands of dollars for a customized hearing aid. While MDHearingAid's devices aren't customizable, they are a more affordable option. 

You can expect to pay anywhere from $199 to $799 for a single hearing aid with MDHearingAid — depending on which model you choose. 

If you need to purchase two hearing aids, MDHearingAid offers a discounted price. The company has even been known to have buy-one-get-one-free deals every so often, so be on the lookout for those. 

Standard shipping is always free. 

If your insurance policy covers or will reimburse you for the cost of your hearing aids, MDHearingAid will provide you with all the necessary information for you to submit a claim.  

Just remember that since not all insurance companies or Medicare cover or reimburse clients for the cost of hearing aids, MDHearingAid will not spearhead this process. You are responsible for contacting the company and asking for all the necessary information/documentation. 

Financing Available Through Affirm

If you would prefer to make smaller monthly payments over 3, 6, or 12 months, MDHearingAid is partnered with Affirm. 

Affirm is an excellent option for those who have trouble paying for everything upfront or want to build/repair their credit score. 


The Bad

  • No Custom Fit Options
  • Not Designed for Children

No Custom Fit Options

MDHearingAid does not offer any custom-fit devices. Instead, the company states its products are one-size-fits-most. 

That said, all of MDHearingAid's models have assorted sizes of clear tubing, tips, and ear domes that connect the hearing aid to your ear. By combining these elements, the devices should fit most adult ears comfortably. 

Not Designed for Children

MDHearing Aid's devices are not to be used by anyone under 18. The company encourages patients under 18 to see a physician for a medical evaluation and an audiologist for evaluation and rehabilitation.


The Bottom Line

MDHearingAid is an excellent company for those looking for a medical-grade hearing aid at an affordable price. You can choose from any of MDHearingAid's four devices, but if you need some help, MDHearingAid has a U.S.-based team of hearing aid specialists that can help you throughout the entire process. 

If for any reason, you need a customized hearing aid, this company is probably not right for you. The company doesn't sell any custom-fit devices. Instead, MDHearingAid has a one-size-fits-most approach, and the company states that its devices should fit most adults. 

There is a 45-day return policy. If you are unhappy with your purchase or the hearing aid doesn't fit your ear, you can return your device for a full refund. Just remember to return within 45 days and be sure to get an RMA number or you'll have to pay a 20 percent return fee.

Most companies have a 30-day return policy, so we appreciate the company offering a fairly decent amount of time to return a device (especially since it takes at least 21 days for your ears to adjust). 

Overall, MDHearingAid is a great option for those with mild-to-moderately severe hearing loss who don't want to pay a fortune for a medical-grade device.

John Nordstrom Austin, TX

After receiving my hearing aids, I was very surprised that they were better than the pair I paid $5068.00 dollars for in the past. I tried a pair for $ 356.00 dollars and all they did was amplify sound to a very tinned and uncomfortable level. I had almost given up on cheap aids that worked but were uncomfortable in both fit and sound but I decided to try one last time before I went to the expense and cost of " premium " aids . How happy I was to discover my MD aids. I wore them almost continuously until, while mowing I lost ny left aid. I called immediately for a replacement and not only received a new aid but also received a discount on the new one. I now continue to receive clear concise hearing but am never without them, except when I mow the lawn. Thank you for offering a prouduct at a reasonable price but one that is as good as the $ 5068.00 dollar pair that I started with.

I had previously paid over $5400 for hearing aids. They never worked properly, and I couldn’t get any help from the office I purchased from. I really wanted to hear my grandchildren, and everyday conversations, so I thought I would try the MDHearingAids. Wow! For $600, I got hearing aids that work! And, I don’t need to worry about replacing batteries all the time. Plus, the expensive ones had to have molds made for them to fit my ears. The MDHearingAids fit and are comfortable. Most importantly, I can hear! I highly recommend these to anyone who needs help hearing. P.S. There customer service is excellent.

I have had a great experience with MD hearing aide. They are "on the spot" when it comes to sales and service. These days, one has to survive the gauntlet talking with 4 different people, to find a person who can and will help solve problems and address issues with and for the customer. Not So with these folks. I have rarely even been put on hold if at all. Whomever answers the phone is ready and willing to act for the customer. They are the good at what they do, honest, fair and take care of business in the Now Time. Not later or tomorrow and after 3 phone calls, 2 emails and lunch. The are refreshing in a time of impersonal third person when I can get to it cyber service. Love it. Response time is immediate, affordable or free. They will be successful because their product is a good one, their service is immediate and they care about their customer base and are always looking for one reason to help immediately rather than bouncing you around to others. Their motto must be "do it now". In a time and place where one gets the run around for days, these people shine and do care about their customers

MD hearing aids are awesome aids especially concerning the price when compared to other brands of hearing aids that cost 3 to 5 times more. Beside that fact I’m totally impressed with HD hearing aid customer support, they are one on one with you if you have any issues or questions about any of their products. I have the Volt rechargeable aids and am very satisfied with them , the way they sound and their performance. I will never own any other brand of hearing aids in my future except HD hearing aids.

My husband's current hearing aids were no longer working for him. We $6,000.00 for them. He took them back but there was going to be another charge. Then I received information from MDHearing. Upon talking with them I placed an order at only 10% the cost of his original. My husband is very pleased with them. They are easy to use and maintain.

For several years my wife said go get your ears tested. When I did I was shocked $6,000 to get my hearing back, That was outside of my budget, so I searched the internet and found real hearing aids in my budget. When they arrived I was surprised at how well they worked. There was a small problem that I told them about on Facebook. Within 15 minutes the problem was resolved. Reasonably priced, do what they are advertised to do, and great customer service. All I can say is wow, if you need hearing aids I would reccomend Md hearing aids.

MD hearing aids are a wonderful and affordable alternative to the versions I began my journey with that sometimes cost ten times as much! Customer service, repair and warranties are all easy to process and representatives are well-trained and friendly. Handling cleaning and repair issues can be a challenge to well-advanced seniors like myself but it gets easier with time and someone is always available to help. I recommend MDHearing Aids to all as a trust-inspiring and economical company.

Got the Volt + for my mother in law. She has been very hesitant to get hearing aids because of the price. I heard about MD Hearing Aid and bought a set for her. So easy to set up and it is wonderful to have her be a part of our conversations again!!

Not only were my hearing aids a great price but i received them very quickly. After reading the enclosed instructions, i have been able to adjust volume and program to meet sppecific needs. Brielle, my "coach", has been the greatest help in getting the fit correct. I already have recommended this company and product to family and friends
