Hoffmann Audiology is proud to be one of the select offices in the United States to offer Lyric, the only extended-wear hearing aid that is 100% invisible. Unlike other hearing aids, Lyric can be worn 24/7 for several months at a time. It is comfortably positioned deep within the ear canal, where it uses your ear’s natural anatomy to direct sound to the eardrum. This unique design and placement provide exceptional natural sound quality and improved hearing in all situations, even in noisy environments. Lyric is placed into the ear canal by a Lyric-certified provider; no surgery or anesthesia is required. Once comfortably positioned, the device can be worn 24 hours a day for months at a time depending on your ear anatomy. Because it remains in the ear canal 24/7 for months at a time, you don’t need to worry about daily hassles like putting the device on or taking it off, or changing batteries, so you can forget about your hearing loss and spend time connecting with friends and loved ones.
Phonak Lyric is the only 100% invisible extended wear hearing aid that is worn 24 hours a day, seven days a week for months at a time. Unlike many hearing aids, Lyric is positioned completely inside the ear canal and it uses the ear’s anatomy to provide natural sound quality and sound localization. Studies have found that 93% of Lyric wearers said it improves their quality of life.
One of the benefits of Lyric’s placement is that it can be worn while talking on the phone. In fact, Lyric can be worn during daily activities – such as sleeping, showering, exercising and using headphones, similar to those not wearing hearing aids.
Lyric is programmed by our audiologist for your specific hearing needs and you can adjust the volume of the device as needed.
Many Lyric wearers find relief of their tinnitus while wearing the Lyric hearing aids. In studies with patients with tinnitus, Lyric was shown to provide greater and faster relief for tinnitus symptoms than other forms of amplification, possibly due to the 24/7 usage.
Lyric’s placement deep in the ear canal allows the outer ear (the pinna) to direct sound into the ear canal naturally, resulting in reduced background noise and feedback, and exceptional sound quality.
Lyric’s miniature size, combined with its exceptional build quality, allows it to sit comfortably in the ear around the clock.
