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.
