Frequently asked questions


What is Lyric and how is it different?

Lyric is the first and only 100% invisible extended wear hearing solution. Once placed, it can be worn 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for months at a time.* It is even designed to be worn during daily activities like showering and sleeping**. Unlike many other hearing aids, Lyric is positioned completely inside the ear canal so that it provides natural sound quality while staying out of sight.

Can I wear Lyric? / What type of hearing loss does Lyric address?

Lyric is designed to fit patients with a mild to moderately-severe hearing loss. A Lyric-trained hearing professional can assess the level of your hearing loss, ear size and shape, medical conditions, and lifestyle to determine if Lyric is the right choice for your hearing needs.

How long does each Lyric device last?

Each Lyric device can be worn for months at a time, and up to a maximum of 120 or until the battery life ends. However, individual replacement needs vary because device battery life is subject to individual ear conditions.  

How does Lyric work?

Lyric uses innovative deep ear technology to address hearing loss by leveraging the ear’s organic shape to capture sound and amplify it with minimal processing. With Lyric, sound enters the outer ear and flows naturally toward the ear drum, just as it would if you weren’t wearing a hearing device. Achieving this deep ear solution required breakthroughs in acoustics, processing, power supply, and packaging. However, the result is the only hearing device that can provide exceptionally clear, crisp sound around the clock for up to months at a time.
