Lyric® is the first and only extended wear hearing device. Lyric is implanted deep within the ear canal by Hearing Instrument Specialist and worn 24 hours a day, seven days a week until the battery runs out. Each device lasts up to four months. Patients can use Lyric during all daily activities such as exercising, showering, talking on the phone and sleeping. Once you are wearing Lyric, you can still adjust the volume and turn the device on and off remotely.
Lyric is designed for people with mild to moderately severe hearing loss. Your Hearing Instrument Specialists will assess your hearing impairment, ear size and shape, medical conditions and daily routine to determine if Lyric is the right choice for you. Lyric devices are individually programmed for your specific hearing needs.
Lyric’s placement deep in the ear canal allows the outer ear to direct sound into the ear canal naturally, resulting in improved directionality and sound localization, reduced feedback and improved high-frequency amplification. The exterior of Lyric is made of a soft material specifically designed to contour to your ear canal. They don’t require battery changes, daily cleanings, maintenance or nightly removal like other hearing aid styles.
Lyric devices may be used until they cease to function or for a maximum of 120 days. You can remove them at home using a special tool, but you must visit your Hearing Instrument Specialist to get new devices put in. Lyric is sold on a subscription basis, meaning patients will purchase one year of Lyric hearing at a time. This guarantees that you’ll have the most advanced Lyric technology currently available, since you will be getting new Lyric devices as needed throughout the year.
