The tech inside

Volt Max comes with rechargeable batteries and a portable charge case that holds up to three additional charges. The hearing aids are simple (no fitness tracking or Bluetooth streaming) but they offer customizing using the MDHearing app and consistently get good customer reviews. Volt Max has two microphones that work together to amplify voices and reduce background noise.

Getting up close

MDHearing aids sit behind the ear and offer buttons for easy volume control.

Ear tips and the behind-the-ear wires can be adjusted based on your ear size and shape.

Volt Max is only available in beige at this time.
