Audiology Associates is pleased to announce they have become one of the first providers in the country to offer the new, revolutionary Lyric hearing device. Lyric is the world’s first and only 100% invisible extended wear hearing device and has recently been featured on CNN, Fox News, and in the New York Times.
Lyric was recently featured on Good Morning America. The story highlighted Lyric’s small size, the fact that you can exercise with Lyric and wear headphones comfortably, and that once placed it is completely invisible.
What To Expect
Getting started on the path toward better hearing is easy. With Lyric® Hearing, you get your own customized Lyric devices in one simple office visit to your Lyric trained hearing professional’s office. Lyric is a non-surgically placed device, and no anesthesia is required. Sizing and fitting you for new Lyric devices should take less than one hour.
To begin your experience, schedule an initial appointment with your local Lyric trained hearing professional.
Initial Patient Visit
Your initial visit will begin with an evaluation of your specific hearing loss condition. Based on this evaluation, your trained Lyric hearing professional will determine if Lyric is the best option for your hearing and lifestyle needs.
- Perform hearing exam to assess your hearing loss
- Conduct ear exam to check size/shape of your canal and ear health
- Evaluate your lifestyle/hearing needs
Once you and your hearing professional have determined that Lyric is the right solution for you, you will be sized and fit with Lyric. This process has three simple steps that enable you to leave the office with your Lyric hearing devices.
Sizing and Fitting Steps
- Size and place Lyric
- Program Lyric
- Discuss how to use Lyric, Q&A, and follow-up visits
After completing the steps above, you will start to experience the benefits of Lyric Hearing.
Follow-up Visits to Receive Your New Lyric Devices
Lyric devices may be used until they cease to function or for a maximum of 120 days. Individual replacement needs may vary. Patients should expect to return to their hearing professional’s office for 10-minute replacement visits.
No one will know why you’re hearing better except you.
Unlike traditional hearing devices, Lyric®’s small size and placement in the ear canal make it totally invisible. Lyric allows you to enjoy the benefits of better hearing without anyone ever knowing you’re using a hearing device.
EFFORTLESS HEARING, 24/7
With Lyric, you can forget the hassles of traditional hearing aids.
Lyric allows you to hear 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for months at a time.* You can use Lyric during your activities ? such as sleeping, showering, exercising, using external headphones, and talking on the phone. There are no batteries to change, no maintenance is needed, and no daily insertion is required. Lyric is a hearing solution that lets you lead your life day to day without constantly being reminded of your hearing loss.
NATURAL PLACEMENT, NATURAL SOUND
Lyric is designed to take advantage of your ear’s anatomy. Lyric’s unique design and placement work with your ear’s anatomy to deliver exceptional sound quality. Lyric uses your outer ear to naturally direct sound into the ear canal without the need for multiple settings or complicated programs.
The exterior of Lyric is made of a soft material specifically designed to contour to your ear canal. Lyric is comfortably placed in your ear canal during a routine visit to your Lyric trained hearing professional. Your ENT physician and audiologist will work together to make sure your Lyric system is fitted and adjusted specifically for your individual hearing needs. Once you are wearing Lyric, you can still adjust the volume if needed, as well as turn the device on and off.
