Phonak Lyric™ - The art of invisibility


Lyric invisible hearing aid


The contact lens for your ear

  • 100% Invisible
  • Clear, natural sound
  • No daily hassles

Benefits of Lyric

  • 100% Invisible - Placed in your ear canal, Lyric remains completely out of sight - invisible to the world.
  • Clear, natural sound - Lyric uses the natural anatomy of your ear to localize sound and delivers a full, natural listening experience.
  • 24/7 hearing - Wear Lyric around the clock for months at a time without taking it out* through daily activities such as exercising, sleeping, or even showering**.
  • Self-replacement – This new optional procedure lets you replace Lyric devices independently, increasing your reassurance. ***

A natural listening experience

While traditional hearing aids capture and process sound outside of the ear, Lyric uses the natural anatomy of the ear to amplify and give you a full, natural listening experience.
Because Lyric is placed in the ear canal near the eardrum by a trained professional, it is a 100% invisible hearing aid.

An invisible hearing aid

Wherever you go, these invisible hearing aids go, too.

Lyric was designed to remain out of sight and out of mind. It is invisible in the ear canal and can be worn 24 hours per day, seven days a week for months at a time.

Lyric provides benefits unlike any other hearing aid for unrestricted living. It can be worn in the shower**, while wearing a helmet for active, physical sports and with headphones in. And because you can wear Lyric while sleeping, once you wake up, you don’t have to put them in or turn them on like traditional hearing aids.

Micro hearing aid engineering

The precision and technology behind invisible hearing aids.

Lyric is designed to sit comfortably in the ear around the clock, and it incorporates the best of Swiss precision with Silicon Valley origins to create a work of technological art.

A broad size range consisting of 7 sizes – from XXS to XXL models – is available to comfortably fit as many different ear sizes as possible. The various sizes provide more client satisfaction and wearing comfort.1

Lyric delivers a more natural hearing experience because sound is processed analog. It also uses your natural ear anatomy to localize sound. To learn more about the wonders of invisible hearing aids, make an appointment with an authorized Lyric provider.

Risk-free trials**** of these small hearing aids are available in many markets.

Lyric hearing aid testimonials

What people are saying about Lyric

The placement of Lyric deep in the ear canal means it takes advantage of the natural benefit of the ear anatomy to provide a clear, natural sound.

Myron Butler, Oklahoma, Lyric wearer

I’m amazed at how natural sounding my wife’s voice is.

Unlike traditional hearing aids, Lyric is placed deep in the ear canal making it 100% invisible. It requires no maintenance or batteries to change or charge. This means patients can forget they are even wearing a hearing aid. Due to these unique benefits, Lyric clients report experiencing higher self-esteem than those who wear a traditional hearing aid.2

Carolyn Hartfield, Georgia, Lyric wearer

I love being able to hear waterfalls and leaves rustling when I am out leading hikes. However, the best benefit of wearing Lyric is it allows me to engage in conversation without saying, ‘Huh’ or ‘What'.

88% of Lyric users agree that Lyric comes close to giving them their natural hearing back,***** and a whopping 93% would recommend Lyric to a friend or loved one.******

24/7 tinnitus relief

Reducing your tinnitus with Lyric

An estimated 10–15% of a population has tinnitus but most cases go untreated.3 This is due to a lack of information and the fact that most people are unaware of who will understand their condition or assist them. While some cases are minor, some require more specific treatment to overcome possible long-term effects.

Although there is no cure for tinnitus, there are various effective forms of counseling and treatments available. Reach out to your Lyric provider to see if Lyric could provide relief from tinnitus.

  • Reduces tinnitus annoyance faster than daily wear hearing aids4*******
  • Improves sleep quality4
