Lyric Hearing Aids and Battery Life

One of the best parts about Lyric’s hassle-free hearing is never having to buy or replace a hearing aid battery ever again. Lyric is the world’s only extended-wear hearing aid and can stay continuously in the ear canal for up to 120 days*. So, many of our users forget entirely that they are wearing hearing devices at all.

How do Lyric’s batteries last so long? Lyric hearing devices use the ear’s natural anatomy to improve hearing, so they don’t need any power-hungry features such as feedback suppression. But, every patient will experience differences in battery life. How long your Lyric battery lasts will depend on your specific lifestyle and ears.

Lifestyle preferences like whether you turn your hearing aids to SLEEP or OFF mode can make a small difference in Lyric’s battery life. But, moisture and wax buildup are the biggest factors in how long your Lyric hearing aid batteries last. Unlike traditional hearing aids, Lyric is water-resistant and can be worn in the shower.

When your Lyric battery does stop functioning, simply visit your audiologist for a 10-minute replacement visit. You’ll get a new Lyric hearing device, and you’ll even be upgraded to the latest technology if there is one available. Welcome to hassle-free hearing!

*Lyric can be worn for up to 120 days at a time. Individual replacement needs may vary.
