Lyric is the first extended-wear hearing aid meant to be worn 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for up to four months at a time. It is placed deep in the ear canal, a mere 4 mm from the eardrum, and remains in place through a variety of activities including showering, exercising, sleeping, and talking on the phone. It is completely invisible to others.
Lyric works by relying on the outer ear’s natural anatomy to direct sound to the device, where it is amplified and sent to the eardrum. This allows for improved directionality and localization (the ability to tell where sounds are coming from), and a natural sound quality. Its deep placement minimizes occlusion effect and reduces feedback. A special coating technology protects the device from moisture and earwax. Lyric devices fit securely and comfortably, and won’t slip around thanks to soft foam seals that conform to the contours of the ear canal. 94% of Lyric users rate the comfort as better than their previous hearing aids, and 86% report “very natural” sound quality.
In every aspect, Lyric is a no-nonsense, worry-free hearing aid. There are no batteries to replace or programming to worry about; Lyric hearing aids are sold on a subscription basis, and when it’s time for a replacement, your Lyric trained audiologist or hearing professional will fit you with a new set of devices quickly and easily, during a routine office visit.
Lyric may not be perfect for everybody. It is best for those with mild to moderately severe hearing loss. Schedule a hearing evaluation today to find out if Lyric is right for you.
