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 localisation. Lyric can also be worn 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for months at a time (individual replacement needs may vary). 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 hearing aid.

Lyric is truly providing many of the benefits patients desire that they may not have been getting from their other hearing aids.

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