Overview

The HD230 is a mid-range in-the-ear hearing aid that has the same physical design as our previous popular HD91 model, but is loaded with more technical capability.

Designed specifically for those with a mild to moderate hearing loss.

 It comes with a no nonsense push-button to change between 3 volume levels.

Then in the Features BOX under the SOUNDS heading please see the changes below

The HD230 is mid-range hearing aid ideally suited for those with a mild to moderate hearing loss. 

  • Setting 1 is set 2dB softer than the software’s recommendation for a mild to moderate loss to give a softer option on startup.
  • Setting 2 is as per a mild to moderate recommendation
  • Setting 3 is 3dB louder than setting 2. 

 Our standard setting is suitable for a 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.

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

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); the colour and how to want the aid to be powered - and add to basket. Check-out and purchase with Visa / Mastercard or PayPal (where there is a 'Pay-in-3' option for an interest-free 3 month split payment plan)

Your order will be posted directly to you via Royal Mail 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) from an NHS appointment or from one of the high street stores 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 will reprogramme in house free of charge if the aid is posted back. Email or call us and we will help immediately or set up a time to discuss your requirements in more detail. If you choose to send the hearing aid back to us in the post for reprogramming we will extend your 30 day trial by a week to account for postage times. 

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 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.

Can I speak to an audiologist?
How much will it cost to run the HD230?

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

  • Hearing Aid 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.
