Lyric® Hearing Aids are the world’s first and only extended wear hearing instruments. These unique instruments are worn 24 hours a day, 7 days a week up to 4 months. They are a hassle-free, 100% invisible hearing solution.
Lyric is the only hearing aid that can be worn without daily insertion or removal and there are no batteries to change. It can be safely worn through daily activities such as showering, exercising, sleeping and talking on the phone.
Lyric is placed deep in the ear canal, approximately 4 millimeters from the ear drum. This allows for both the microphone and receiver to fit in the ear canal, assisting with natural sound quality. It cannot be seen from any angle, at any time. The programmable device is comfortably placed during a routine office visit. It is not an implant and it can be removed with a special tool.
Two soft foam seals are engineered to contour to the ear canal. They are coated with a technology developed to protect them from moisture and earwax. The designed team of ENT physicians, audiologists, and engineers built the device around three key concepts:1. Sound Quality improves with proximity to the eardrum
2. Many people with hearing loss are dissatisfied with their hearing aid options
3. Many people with hearing loss want a hassle-free, invisible solution
Natural Sound Quality;
Lyric uses the natural anatomy of the outer ear to direct sound to the microphone, where it is then amplified at the ear drum. Because Lyric takes advantage of the ear’s anatomy, users experience natural sound quality and improved directionality and localization (the ability to hear where sounds come from). Eighty six percent Lyric users agree that the sound quality is very good.
