Hearing aids help millions of patients with hearing loss reconnect with their world. As helpful as these devices are, they do require daily care in order to function effectively. Lyric is the industry’s first and only extended-wear hearing aid. It is designed for continuous wear, and does not require removal, cleaning or new batteries. In addition to the convenience of not having to worry about daily insertion and removal, Lyric offers some additional advantages, as well.
Lyric is perfect for those patients who are physically active. It is made to be worn 24/7, and can stay in place during exercising, showering and sleeping. It is positioned deep in the ear canal, very close to the eardrum, and stays in place thanks to soft foam seals that conform to the patient’s ears. A majority of users rate Lyric as being more comfortable than other hearing aids they have tried. Sound quality is described as “very natural” by these same users. Because of the deep placement, occlusion and feedback are limited.
Lyric hearing aids are sold on a subscription basis, typically a year at a time. A routine office visit with a Lyric-trained audiologist is all that is required when your device needs replacing.
Lyric isn’t right for everybody – but it might be a viable solution for you. If you’re interested in learning more, schedule an appointment with one of our audiologists to determine whether you are a candidate for Lyric.
