Hearing aid users looking for the convenience of an extended-wear device may want to consider Lyric. This in-the-canal hearing aid is placed very close to the eardrum, and is designed to be worn 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for up to four months without removal. It can be worn while participating in a number of activities that require traditional hearing aids to be removed, such as showering, exercising, sleeping and talking on the phone.
Comfort and ease of use are major benefits of the Lyric device. It utilizes soft foam seals that fit in the contours of your ear canals to prevent slippage. 94% of users report Lyric is more comfortable than their previous hearing aids, and with no batteries to replace or cleaning required, these instruments are virtually trouble-free.
Lyric utilizes the natural anatomy of the outer ear to channel sound to the device. There, it is amplified and sent to the eardrum. The result is better directionality and improved localization, two factors that are important in producing a more natural sound. In fact, 86% of Lyric users describe sound quality as “very natural.” Occlusion and feedback are also reduced thanks to the instrument’s deep location within the ear canal. The device is protected from moisture and earwax by a special coating.
Lyric hearing aids are available on a subscription basis. When you’re due for a replacement, your Lyric trained audiologist will remove your old devices and fit you with new ones during a routine office visit. If you are interested in learning more about Lyric or seeing if it is right for you, please contact our office for an appointment.
