One of our patients recently asked, “What do I do if I’m not hearing as clearly as when my Lyrics were first placed?” Our in-house Lyric expert answers the question below:
If you experience a change in hearing, see your hearing healthcare professional. You may not be hearing as clearly because of wax, debris, or something happening with the device itself - all of which can be assessed by your hearing device provider.
If your change in hearing occurred after taking a shower or getting your hearing devices wet, try turning off your Lyrics, then using a hairdryer on the coolest setting to attempt to dry them out. Simply point the hairdryer towards your ears for approximately 20 seconds. Afterward, if the change in hearing continues, make an appointment with your hearing aid provider. He or she will be happy to examine your Lyrics and keep you hearing clearly over the holidays!
