Lyric hearing devices are one of the newest and most exciting advancements in hearing aid technology. They were first made available to the public in 2009.
Disposable, invisible Lyric hearing devices can be worn continuously for up to four months without ever needing to change the batteries.
Regular hearing aids have to be removed throughout the day for sleeping, showering, exercising and other activities. They also require weekly battery changes. While these requirements aren’t a problem for everyone, this can be a cumbersome routine for our active, busy patients. If this sounds like you, Lyric may be the answer you’re looking for.
