When Grace J. competed in the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona, Spain, she couldn’t hear her opponent’s breathing, which she believes could have given her an edge in her judo competitions. Now, the former member of the 1992 U.S. women’s judo team and holder of more than 41 medals from international competitions and a sixth degree black belt, can hear her opponent’s breathing while competing thanks to Lyric®.
“I’ve competed for so many years and had no way of hearing my opponent’s breathing,” said Grace. “With Lyric hearing aid, I hear so well today that I can actually hear their breathing! I now know when opponents are losing their stamina and become more susceptible to a throw, a primary move in judo. Lyric lets me get ahead of my game plan because I wear Lyric while competing and hear better.
Although she’s no longer competing at the Olympic level, Grace is still pursuing her passion for judo. Unlike traditional hearing aid solutions, the Lyric hearing aid is positioned completely inside the ear canal, and is worn for up to 4 months at a time (individual replacement needs may vary). This feature is especially useful for people, including athletes, who want to enjoy an active lifestyle without worrying about their hearing aid falling out. Lyric stays in place because it is placed deep in the ear canal, and it is water resistant so you can sweat and shower while wearing Lyric. And because Lyric is completely hidden, no one knows you are wearing a hearing aid but you. Many users forget they’re even wearing a hearing aid, allowing them to focus on other activities, be it an Olympic competitive sport, such as judo, or just relaxing and spending time with family and friends.
We have received a few questions lately regarding the definition of extended wear hearing. We are writing this blog to help answer this question. Lyric is the one and only hearing aid technology that can be worn 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for months at a time, and is 100% invisible. This means you can wear Lyric for up to 4 months at a time without ever removing the device or changing batteries! Individual replacement needs may vary; some people cannot wear Lyric for 4 full months due to ear conditions and other factors that can impact device life. With Lyric you can live your life without the daily hassles associated with traditional hearing aids! You can shower, sleep, exercise, talk on the phone, play golf on a windy golf course, sail on a windy bay, and still enjoy better hearing! Traditional hearing aids can require daily insertion and removal, battery changes or recharging, maintenance, and can fall out during strenuous exercise. And you cannot shower or sleep with traditional hearing aids.
With Lyric you can hear better throughout the day and night, without daily hassles. And because it sits deep in the ear canal it is 100% invisible. This is only possible with the technology of Lyric!
