HD 430 RIC Digital Hearing Aid

READY-TO-WEAR, no fitting or hearing test required.

Fully programmable to match hearing test results.


The HD 430 RIC – our smallest ever behind-the-ear hearing aid!

The HD 430 Hearing Aid is a slimline, unobtrusive yet comfortable behind-the-ear hearing aid. The HD 430 RIC is not only an exceptionally small receiver-in-canal style device but is also packed full of the latest hearing technology. There is no shortage of clever features designed to enhance your listening experience. Almost invisible when worn, the HD 430 RIC allows you to get on with your daily life by providing a quality sound you can rely on.

What’s so special about the HD 430 RIC?

Did we mention it’s a tiny hearing aid? So small, you’ll forget you’re wearing it! Worn behind the ear with the receiver nestled snugly within the ear canal, it’s almost invisible and incredibly discreet. Suitable for those with a mild to moderate hearing loss, the HD 430 RIC is crammed full of exciting features, yet remains simple to operate and is available at an affordable price.

Highlights of this hearing aid include the hydro-guard, a water resistant coating that acts as a barrier against moisture and dirt. This, in turn, can help to increase the lifespan of the device. You can focus on a conversation within a crowded restaurant, thanks to directional twin microphone and speech enhancement technology. Distracting background noise is filtered out, leaving you with a purer more natural sound. With multiple memory settings and 16 sound processing channels, your device can be programmed to adapt to a number of your favourite listening environments and can operate according to your individual hearing requirements. It also has a telecoil facility, perfect for keeping you connected.

It operates using a 312 battery, providing you with a battery life that is impressive for the size of the hearing aid.

If you have sent us your audiogram in advance the HD430 will be programmed accordingly. There will be 4 settings accessed by the push button on the spine of the HD430:

  • Setting 2 is as per audiogram recommendation
  • Setting 3 is 2-3dB louder than setting 2
  • Setting 4 is set as a telecoil (loop)

If you do not have an audiogram; our default setting, suitable for a mild to moderate, high-frequency hearing loss is used to create the amplification profile. 

The settings can be changed at any time. Please do discuss your requirements with us before ordering, or feel free to send back the HD430 at any time for fine-tuning.

    by James on 08/12/2018

    I bought the HD 430 4 months ago with help from Joan. Previously I had from Heating Direct the HD 210 and the DH 390 both of which are small in the ear. Within months I had lost both, possibly because of the small antenna needed to place in and take out of the ear. When I placed a jumper over my head I must have dislodged them.
    Hence purchasing the HD 430 a very small over the ear.
    It really is unobtrusive. Once in I hardly know it is there.
    I was given two two snap-on tips, one with two holes which caused a noise for me. The other was a size 9mm Occluded tip which suits me better. There are four different levels of sound to choose from, I mainly use level One and level two occasionally when watching TV. Level four I am uncertain what it does but no matter for me. All these HD products are very good. The 420 has not been lost, thank goodness. I am now trying a slight smaller Snap-Tip 8mm, which when inserted correctly seems to work even better with no sqeeks. Well, The HD 430 has been so good I am just about to purchase another one for my right ear. I can't say better than that.

  3. Perfect for Me!

    by Peter on 06/04/2018

    I did buy the HD210 hearing aids some time ago and although they were recently programmed to my audiogram, where not really suitable for me. Like many people, I realised I had some hearing loss, so bought the HD210’s thinking ‘they will do”. Finally, I had a hearing test and discovered my hearing loss was classified ‘moderate to severe’. I discussed whether the HD430 RIC hearing aid would be a better option for me with Joan from Hearing Direct. She said that with 16 channels, the 430’s could likely be better programmed to suit my needs. I ordered a pair of 430’s and have been wearing them for a day now. They are excellent! On the lowest volume setting I now hear birds singing and dogs barking in the distance. I’ve turned the TV down and have turned off the subtitles as I can now hear what is being said. In conversation, I now hear every word clearly. I would advise everyone to have a hearing test and discuss with Hearing Direct what hearing aid would best suit them, like I should have done at the outset! Many, many thanks to Joan for all the help and advice she has given me. Many thanks to Hearing Direct for their excellent customer service.

  4. My sound world just burst into life!

    by Phil on 14/03/2018

    I have just purchased 2 HD 430 RIC hearing aids and only on my second day wearing them so a little early to give much feedback on how I’m doing with them but my first impressions are that they are absolutely going to change my life! I seem to have missed so many sounds over the years and so this new experience for me is extremely exciting.
    I have to say that when I first put them in my sound world burst into life and it frightened me a little. After a couple of hours I gradually started to get used to them and really enjoyed the new sounds that to me were crystal clear, especially people talking that I’ve struggled with for years. People don’t mumble anymore!
    I went into a busy coffee shop and sat away from the counter but actually could hear exactly what people were ordering. I would never have been able to do that before. I would have just been hearing an awful jumble of horrible noises.
    I will again give more feedback after a few weeks of wearing them and let you know how I’ve been getting on!
    What I can do though is give feedback on my purchase and advise with them.
    From my first contact with Hearing Direct the whole process has been absolutely wonderful, it couldn’t have gone any smoother. I have been in contact several times with a very patient lady called Joan who has answered all of my questions so promptly. She has been fabulous! I can’t speak highly enough about her. She gave me absolute confidence that I was dealing with a professional company and that I was buying a quality product. I would have no hesitation in recommending Hearing Direct to you.

    I have had this hearing aid for over two months. I am really happy both in terms of listening and the level of endurance of batteries. Really it's very good and also at the price level.

  7. Better than the $2400 one I had before.

    by Mike in Mico, Texas on 03/11/2017

    I've been using these for a little over a week now and these hearing aids are great. Better than the previous $2400 aids I had. I especially like the molded shape of the receivers which help them to stay in place in my ear.

    I'm spreading the good word about these aids to those I know that can benefits from hearing aids.

    I'm very satisfied with these aids so far.

  8. Excellent clarity

    by Edward J Harborne on 22/12/2016

    I live in France and purchased from Hearing Direct HD 430 RIC hearing aid.
    I have had cheap ones in the past which have not had good sound and also some years ago a very expensive in ear unit costing £2500 and after 3 years broke down and they wanted Euro 1000 to repair it.
    The new unit has excellent clarity and background noise suppression. I had a minor problem with feedback but Joan at Hearing direct could not have been more helpful in resolving the problem. This at a fraction of the cost of a unit bought from a hearing
    aid specialist shop.
