MDHearingAid Air Online Hearing Aid Review

So what did I find?

1.  The devices are comfortable, but they do not provide a reliable fit, and the ear tips would often fall out of my ears.

2.  The devices come pre-programmed, which means they are not accurately programmed to specific hearing loss prescriptions.  They did provide some good amplification, just not perfectly to a specific hearing loss.To see how a hearing aid is properly programmed, watch my video on Real Ear Measures:  https://youtu.be/cHR0Oa6I-wY

‚Äć3. Their "Advanced Noise Reduction" did not lower background noise during testing.

4.  Their "Feedback Canceler" did not cancel feedback.

5.  Customer service is acceptable.

6.  Their warranty only covers repairs, not loss and damage.  You can only extend it for 1 additional year (2 maximum years of warranty).

7.  Returns are easy, just make sure you wait at least 21 days and call for a return code, otherwise they will not refund 100% of your money.

8.  They are low cost, you might even say cheap!  At only $800 for a pair, the MDHearingAid "AIR" is definitely affordable.

9.  If you want to give them a try, great.  Just don't be fooled by the marketing hype.  Medical Doctors are not specifically trained in amplification and are inherently qualified to design a hearing aid.  

10.  They are not even close to the quality of even basic hearing aid models purchased from an audiology clinic, nor do they come with "hands on" professional service and custom programming.  Comparing the MDHearingAid "AIR" to a traditional hearing aid in price is like comparing Apples to Oranges.  If you are okay with this, then they are worth a shot.
