Lyric is an extended-wear hearing solution.
These are hearing aids that are worn for an extended period of time. The hearing aid is programmed and placed in a specific position within the ear canal, where it remains for two to three months. We take measurements to determine the appropriate position of the hearing aid within the ear. Only a hearing professional, like an audiologist, may insert the hearing aid. Because the instrument remains in the ear for an extended period of time, we have a thorough screening process to determine your candidacy for this type of fitting. Physical factors of the ear canal, lifestyle, and medical history must be considered before extended-wear hearing aids may be dispensed. Patients who choose extended-wear hearing aids value their discrete appearance and the lack of daily maintenance. They are replaced at regular intervals at our office. Though each device is designed to last up to three months, replacement intervals vary from patient to patient. All of this would be discussed at your consultation.
What is Lyric and how is it different?
Lyric is the first and only extended wear hearing solution. Once placed, it can be worn 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for months at a time: It is even designed to be worn during daily activities like showering and sleeping”. Unlike many other hearing aids, Lyric is positioned completely inside the ear canal so that it provides natural sound quality while staying out of sight.

How long does each Lyric device last?
Each Lyric device can be worn for up to three months at a time (results vary) or until the battery life ends. However, individual replacement needs vary because device battery life is subject to individual ear conditions.
How does Lyric work?
Lyric uses innovative deep ear technology to address hearing loss by leveraging the ear’s organic shape to capture sound and amplify it with minimal processing. With Lyric, sound enters the outer ear and flows naturally toward the ear drum, just as it would if you weren’t wearing a hearing device. Achieving this deep ear solution required breakthroughs in acoustics, processing, power supply, and packaging. However, the result is the only hearing device that can provide exceptionally clear, crisp sound around the clock for up to months at a time.
