Lyric Hearing Aid Comparisons
Determining what type of hearing aid option is right for you is not an easy decision. There are many brands and styles of aids available with different benefits, features, and prices. The key to making the best decision for you involves a combination of factors including your specific type of hearing loss, your lifestyle and hearing requirements, and the advice of your hearing professional.
As you and your healthcare professional consider whether Lyric® is right for you, it is helpful to understand the difference between Lyric and traditional hearing aids. Traditional aids are daily wear devices that come in a variety of forms (behind the ear, in the canal, etc.). Lyric is an extended wear device that resides in the ear for months at a time. To illustrate the difference between these two categories of hearing aid options, we have provided the features of each below.
In addition to the physical differences between Lyric and Traditional Hearing Aids, 88% of Lyric users agree Lyric's sound quality is very natural.** Lyric is designed to have both its speaker and receiver located fully in the ear canal. This deep canal placement provides many sound quality benefits, such as reduced occlusion, feedback, and improved directionality. Lyric can also be worn 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for months at a time.* Unlike traditional hearing aids that are taken out each night or when a user gets in the shower, Lyric remains in the user’s ear for the life of the aid. Lyric is truly providing many of the benefits patients desire that they may not have been getting from their prior hearing aids.

**Based on a telephone survey of 100 patients who have worn Lyric for at least 30 days
