What does extended wear mean?

24th May 2016 by The Lyric Team

Only Lyric hearing aids can be worn day and night for up to 4 months at a time.  Lots of people avoid wearing a hearing aid because they are apprehensive about people knowing that they have a hearing loss, or because they do not want the day to day hassle associated with a hearing aid.  With Lyric there is no battery changing or  day to day cleaning or handling required.  Many people who wear Lyric actually say that they don't actually feel like they wear a hearing aid, because they do not have this daily reminder. On top of this Lyric is 100% invisible.

Lyric can be worn while exercising, sleeping and showering.  The only time Lyric hearing aids should be removed is if you decide to go scuba diving, sky diving or having an MRI scan.

Lots of people with a hearing loss are concerned about not hearing well at night - particularly if they live alone or have young children to look after.  With Lyric you have the option of leaving your devices switched ON at night, giving you peace of mind that you will be alerted to sounds.  Alternatively if you do not want to be disturbed, Lyric can be switched to the OFF position with the SoundLync and therefore acts as an effective ear plug, blocking out all external sounds. In addition to this there is a SLEEP setting, which means that your Lyric hearing aids become acoustically transparent, meaning that you hear the way you did without your Lyrics in place.
