Better Hearing and Sound Quality with Lyric Hearing Aids

The human ear is perfectly designed to capture and funnel sounds. Other hearing aids have receivers that catch and process sound before it can enter the ear naturally. Lyric is placed where no other hearing aid goes, right in the hearing “sweet spot” of the ear canal. Sound enters the ear like it would without a hearing aid for sound quality that is always natural—never processed. Lyric even comes with a special tool that allows you to adjust the volume up and down for different hearing situations you find yourself in. In fact, in a recent user survey, 91% of users were very satisfied with Lyric’s sound quality. qBased on 97 patients who wore Lyric for at least 30 days

Lyric Hearing Aid Placement
 

Benefits of Lyric Hearing Aid's Unique Placement

Reduced Background Noise

Lyric’s unique placement deep in the ear canal is clearer hearing even in background noise. The shape of the outer ear helps sound enter the ear canal in a way that lets us determine where sounds are coming from—for example, whether they are behind us, next to us, or in front of us. Since Lyric hearing aids sit deep in the ear canal, the outer ear funnels sound toward the ear drum naturally.   As a result, Lyric wearers can better tell the directions of different sounds and focus on the ones they want to listen to.

With Lyric, you can better hear voices even in background noise—whether you’re in a restaurant, at a party, or just spending time with friends and loved ones.

Reduced Feedback/Whistling

Some hearing aid wearers complain of a whistling noise, also known as “feedback”, which can sometimes occur with hearing aids. Fortunately, Lyric’s unique placement in the ear canal has been shown to reduce feedback. Since Lyric’s receiver is closer to the ear drum than receivers in traditional hearing aids, Lyric does not have to work as hard to amplify sound – particularly in the high-frequency range that most hearing aid feedback occurs in.

Also, since Lyric does not have large vents that traditional hearing aids have, there are fewer ways that sound can leak out, further minimizing the chance of feedback and allowing Lyric wearers to enjoy natural sound quality, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

 

Improved Comfort

With some in-the-canal hearing aids, wearers can complain of a “blocked” feeling because sound that vibrates inside the ear canal cannot escape. Instead, sounds are trapped by the hearing aid and directed toward the ear drum. Lyric’s revolutionary design enables it to sit deeper in the ear canal than any other hearing aid so fewer sound vibrations are trapped between the hearing aid and the ear drum. 94% of Lyric users rate Lyric to be more comfortable than their prior hearing aids.qBased on a survey in which 100 patients wore Lyric for at least 30 days.

High-Frequency Gain

Many people with hearing loss first notice difficulty hearing high-pitched sounds such as like children’s voices. Placing Lyric hearing aids deeper in the ear canal can increase volume by as much as 15dB in the high frequencies because the outer ear can continue to capture as much sound as possible on its own. In fact, 91% of Lyric users agree they can hear clearly in more situations than they could prior to wearing Lyric. qBased on results from a survey totaling 100 patients who had worn Lyric for at least 30 days.

Lyric is off the charts as far as clarity and crispness. I feel like I don’t have hearing loss. I feel pretty much as good as I’ve ever felt about my hearing. - Cookie, Lyric Wearer
