Why use Lyric?

The Lyric hearing aid - completely invisible when placed in the earOne in six people in the UK suffer from hearing loss to some degree, that’s over 10 million people, of which over 50% are over the age of 60. But despite being a significant health issue only two million people have a hearing aid and only 1.4 million actually wear it regularly and enjoy the benefits of better hearing.

Many people just put up with hearing difficulties because they don’t want to be seen wearing a hearing aid or don’t realise that things could be better. They miss out on conversations and their family and friends can become frustrated as they have to repeat themselves time and again, or turn up the television volume until it is unbearable for others in the room.

In recognition to this the Lyric hearing aid was developed by ear nose and throat specialists, engineers and audiologists in the USA. So by being invisible the hearing aid tackled the biggest problem for people with hearing loss in the market. But the Lyric also combats some of the main issues found by people that wear traditional hearing aids:

  • They don’t want to have to change batteries
  • They would like to be able to wear them all the time
  • They want hearing aids to sound natural and clear

Lyric The Invisible Hearing Aid in the Ear CanalAs the Lyric hearing aid is fitted within the ear canal it is 100% invisible and as it sits close to the ear drum and uses the anatomy of your ear – the sound quality is superb. Also it is completely safe to stay in the ear canal for extended periods of time – so you don’t have to remove it to shower, exercise or sleep you just go back every few months to get a new one fitted giving you a new devise with a new battery.

So why not try it for yourself –
