General information about Lyric

What type of hearing loss does Lyric address?

Lyric is designed to fit mild to moderately-severe hearing loss.

What does it feel like to wear Lyric?

Lyric is made from a soft biocompatible material designed to contour to the ear canal and ensure natural ventilation and stable, comfortable placement.

Does Lyric require a medical procedure?

No. Lyric is a hearing aid that is placed in the ear canal and programmed by a Certified Lyric Provider in their office. The initial sizing and fitting process for Lyric takes about one hour.

Can I remove Lyric on my own?

Yes, if necessary. Once you’ve been fitted with Lyric, your provider will give you a tool called the SoundLync™ that can be used to take the device out or adjust the volume. However, Lyric is not designed to be reinserted once removed. You will have to go back to your provider for a replacement. Alternatively, you can speak with your Lyric provider about self-replacement. This new optional procedure lets you replace Lyric devices independently every second time.

Can I replace Lyric myself?

Yes, self-replacement is an optional procedure allowing you to replace Lyric devices independently for your own reassurance.*** 

Speak with your Lyric provider to see if this option is suitable for you. 

Can I use headsets or earphones with Lyric?

Yes, one of the benefits of Lyric is that you can continue to use external headphones and external hearing protection. Check with your provider if you are not sure.

Can I use my phone while wearing Lyric?

Yes, another benefit of Lyric is that it can be worn while talking on a mobile or fixed-line phone. In fact, Lyric can be worn during most daily activities, including sleeping, showering, exercising and using headphones.

Can I swim with Lyric?

Lyric is water resistant, not waterproof**. Therefore, underwater swimming and diving are not recommended. However, Lyric can be worn in the shower or during water activities in which the head is not fully submerged under water. Speak to your provider about protecting your devices during water activities as swim moulds can be worn with Lyric.

Can I fly on a plane with Lyric?

Yes, you can fly while wearing Lyric.

Will Lyric set off a metal detector?

No. The metal components in Lyric are too small to set off metal detectors.

Can I have an MRI, X-ray or CT scan while wearing Lyric?

Lyric must be removed before you have an MRI but is fine to wear during an X-ray or CT scan. However, in all cases we recommend that you inform the physician and/or technician about the Lyric device. Your Lyric provider will replace your devices.
