Lyric Hearing Aids

LYRIC® HEARING aids: Invisible. Effortless. 24/7.

We are proud to be one of the select offices in the United States to offer Lyric Hearing Aids to its patients. Lyric was featured as a new hearing technology that is not only tiny and invisible, but also delivers exceptional sound quality without the daily hassles of cleaning or changing batteries. These lyric invisible hearing aids are appropriate for a wide range of hearing losses and ages; however, it should be noted there are limitations.

Watch A Video on How Lyric Works below:

Lyric is the first extended wear hearing device that is 100% invisible. It is comfortably placed in the ear canal by a Lyric trained hearing professional and can be worn 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for up to 4 months at a time.1 No surgery or anesthesia is required.

Unlike many other hearing aids, Lyric is positioned completely inside the ear canal, so it uses your ears’ natural anatomy to funnel sound to your eardrum. This unique design and placement helps reduce background noise and feedback and provides exceptionally natural sound quality. Because it remains in the ear canal 24/7 for months at a time, you don’t need to worry about daily hassles like putting the device on or taking it off, or changing batteries, so you can forget about your hearing devices completely.

How much do lyric hearing aids cost?

Lyric hearing aids pricing is standard across as dispensing audiology practices. Phonak, the lyric manufacturer, sets a price for an annual prescription per ear. According to New York State Law you are entitled to a FREE 45 day trial with lyric hearing aids. Once you have decided to subscribe to lyric for the first time, it is your decision to renew the prescription annually or to switch to different technology.

Problems may present as a distorted sound quality, decreased volume or intermittent sound disruption.
  • Not appropriate for very small ear canal sizes, middle ear issues, excessive cerumen or draining ears.
