The Phonak Lyric: What Can This Groundbreaking Hearing Aid Do For You?
Aug 27, 2015
What a hearing aid looks like, and how you use it has always been rather straightforward. Typically, a hearing aid is of a sort of beige colour, and the user is seen to be clearly wearing it. The user will take it off sometimes during the day, and every night before they go to bed, and of course have to get the batteries changed to keep it working.
The Phonak Lyric changes everything about the operation and style of a hearing aid that might put you off using one, all while continuing to improve the quality and clarity of your hearing.
The main point about the Phonak Lyric hearing aid is this: It’s invisible. Don’t take that too seriously – you can hold thing thing in your hand and see it, but once it’s been placed in your ear, nobody knows it’s there. This is because rather than placing it in the outer ear, like a typical hearing aid, the Lyric is inserted into your ear canal by a trained professional. The device is only 12mm long and sits just 4mm away from your ear drum, meaning nobody you ever meet will know you're wearing it.
This means that once you’ve had your hearing aid fitted, nobody will know you’re wearing one, and if it’s something you’ve found yourself a bit conscious about in the past, then problem solved!
Of course, the main selling point is the invisibility of the Lyric, but there’s some other great features too. On a normal hearing aid, you have to take it out every time you shower, sleep and even talk on the phone! Not with the lyric… It doesn’t even need to be removed for a battery change! The Phonak Lyric is designed to remain in your ear 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for months at a time. Not having to constantly remove and refit your hearing aid, and not needing to worry about maintenance means you can start to forget about your hearing problem, with the solution becoming extremely convenient.
Probably the most important thing though – just how much better does the Phonak Lyric make your hearing? Well, with the Lyric being fitted in the ear canal, just 4mm away from the ear drum, the sound quality is a lot more natural than your average hearing aid. The sound naturally enters your outer ear and goes straight towards your ear drum, where the Lyric is placed. And, as mentioned, because of the breathable material and moisture protection mechanisms fitted on the device, it remains where it’s been fitted for several months at a time. Providing a much clearer, natural sound while being discreet and very low-maintenance means the Phonak Lyric a groundbreaking hearing device.
