Hear From A ProfessionalHear what professionals are saying about Lyric!
"Lyric came into existence as a unique collaboration between groups of scientists, engineers and physicians who all had a common vision of trying to produce the best possible hearing aid and we started on the assumption of: What does the patient really need? What does a hearing aid user want and desire in a hearing aid?" "We all knew that getting a hearing aid to deliver sound as close to the ear drum as possible made for the most natural sounding amplification. We felt that the only way that could be appropriately done would be to build a device small enough to place near the eardrum and allow a patient to wear the device 24/7 for a period of months." Dr. Robert Schindler Chairman Emeritus, Dept of Otolaryngology, UCSF, Founding Director, InSound Medical & Lyric Wearer
"The Lyric device produces a sound quality that is always described as natural because the entire instrument the microphone, the receiver element, the output of the speaker is all placed within the ear canal, which means that the natural funneling effect, for example of the pinna that helps gather sound into the ear, is all there. And the output of the speaker is very close to the ear drum. So the first thing the patients will notice with the InSound device is that they no longer have an occlusion effect. They don't have that sense that their ear is plugged in some way." Dr. Robert Schindler Chairman Emeritus, Dept of Otolaryngology, UCSF, Founding Director, InSound Medical & Lyric Wearer
"I've spent my career trying to make possible that which everyone else thought was impossible which is, by the way, how you make discoveries. It is extraordinary to be able to see such a device actually come to the point where patients can use it day to day..." "You know, I'm here now, 64 years old, and like many 64-year olds, I have a high-frequency hearing loss. It's one that precludes me from hearing my wife well, precludes me from hearing conversations in a noisy restaurant, and for the first time in my life wearing these InSound devices I'm able to hear sounds that I've never heard before." "I'll never forget that one of my early experiences with InSound was going to the ballet with my wife, and for the first time since I was in kindergarten I heard a triangle being played by the orchestra. So until you experience the kind of hearing you get with Lyric, you really don't appreciate how much sound you're missing." Dr. Robert Schindler Chairman Emeritus, Dept of Otolaryngology, UCSF, Founding Director, InSound Medical & Lyric Wearer

"We have the natural acoustics of the ear aiding the system and giving the person more natural sound and directionality, they’re able to hear better in noise and actually hear with less volume in the instrument, so it’s a very clear sound." William S. Diles, M.A., Kenwood Hearing Solutions
