Meet The World’s First Invisible Hearing Aid

Born in Silicon Valley in 2007, Lyric was invented by Dr Robert Schindler in collaboration with Ear, Nose and Throat physicians, audiologists and engineers. The first generation Lyric was then launched to the UK market by Phonak in 2011. Changing the future of technology, the small yet powerful device has transformed everyday life for those with a mild to moderately severe hearing deficit.  
Featuring innovative battery technology and a low residual volume which uses less power, Lyric can be worn 24/7 for months at a time. A disposable instrument, it is completely hassle-free with no cleaning or battery changes required. Simply pop you’re your audiologist every few months to be fitted with a brand new Lyric hearing aid.
Just 12mm long, Lyric’s biocompatible soft foam seals contour into the ear canal making it 100% invisible, giving you the confidence to enjoy life without feeling like you are wearing a hearing aid. Gifting you the capacity to hear day and night, thanks to Lyric you will now feel safe while you sleep and everyday activities such as showering or going to the gym will be made easier minus the inconvenience of pre-removal.   At Audiology Medical Services, we offer a 28-day free Lyric trial, with no deposit required or obligation to continue.

Lyric Fitting Process

The Lyric hearing aid boasts a 75% fit rate, however you must meet certain patient criteria to be eligible. In most cases, those with mild to moderately severe hearing loss will be suitable candidates. During your initial consultation, a member of our audiology team will inspect your ear canal with a microscope to vet your compatibility with Lyric. The length and dimensions of your ear canal will also be measured using a depth and lateral sizer. Patients who dive regularly or have an existing medical condition that requires frequent MRI scans will not be suitable candidates for a Lyric hearing aid.    
Once you have been approved by your hearing care specialist, Lyric can then be fitted by a fully-certified audiologist. The procedure is quick and painless, with your audiologist using a very slow manoeuvre to gently place Lyric deep inside the bony portion of the canal, sitting around 4mm from your ear drum for maximum sound benefit.
Following your fitting, we will take you through extensive counselling to ensure you experience a seamless adjustment period. If for any reason you are unhappy and would like to remove your Lyric hearing aid, a special tool can be used at home. However, it is important to remember, you cannot re-insert the instrument yourself. Lyric is a disposable device, meaning you must return to your audiologist every few months for a replacement hearing aid to be fitted correctly.
