Lyric is an extended wear hearing aid. What this means is that it can stay in your ear canal for months at a time. The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) has approved the Lyric device to remain in the ear canal for up to 4 months at a time. The longevity of the device in your ear canal all depends on your personal body chemistry, meaning wax build up and how much your ear canals sweat. The average lifespan of Lyric is about 2 months. At the end of the two months, we remove the old devices and replace them with new devices. The Lyric device doesn’t not fit everyone. The only way to know if it is the right device for you is to try it. Your audiologist first needs to measure the length and width of your ear canal. To answer your question, yes there is something new with Lyric. There are two new sizes. There used to be only 5 sizes and now there are 7 sizes. Lyric added an XXS and XXL. If you are still interested in Lyric but were contraindicated in the past based on sizing, make an appointment to try Lyric again. Allow your audiologist to resize your ear and allow you to trial it again for 30 days risk free.
Life sounds great! Enjoy every moment!
