Phonak Lyric

For the past 70 years, Swiss hearing aid brand Phonak has earned a reputation for designing and developing hearing solutions that utilize cutting-edge technology. 

The brand’s extensive range of devices has been created to suit most types of hearing loss, lifestyles, ages, and budgets. While Phonak may have made its name as the market leader of electronic hearing devices, it launched the world’s first hearing aid that is powered by a lithium-ion rechargeable battery.

Phonak Lyric hearing aid

When Phonak introduced the Lyric hearing aid, it transformed people’s perception of hearing aids. While hearing aid users are accustomed to taking out hearing aids to charge overnight, the Lyric hearing aid can be worn 24/7. The world’s only completely invisible hearing aid, it can be worn all day, day, and night without being removed for up to three months. The Phonak Lyric is made using a soft foam material that fits comfortably in your ear canal, while its special coating protects the device from moisture and earwax.

Lyric 24/7

The Lyric hearing aid allows wearers to enjoy their favorite activities without thinking about their hearing loss. With the Lyric hearing aids in your ears, you can shower, bathe, speak on the phone and even sleep. The device sits completely in the ear canal, only 4mm away from the eardrum providing outstanding sound quality. Following around three months of wear, the hearing aids are removed by your hearing care professional who will replace them with a new Lyric hearing aid that has been programmed to your hearing prescription. This means you don’t have to put them in or take them out each day or even change the hearing aid batteries.

Lyric hearing aid tinnitus relief

The constant amplification and stimulation of your auditory system provided by Lyric hearing aids can provide in-depth relief of tinnitus symptoms (ringing or buzzing in the ears) and even improve your quality of sleep.

Benefits and features

Designed for people with mild to moderate hearing loss, the Phonak Lyric is available in seven sizes, from XXS to XXL, and comes with a host of benefits and features. For example:

  • Enhanced localization and directionality so you can tell where sounds are coming from
  • Minimizes occlusion effect (ear canals feel blocked)
  • Reduced feedback (whistling sound)
  • High-frequency gain (ability to hear high-pitched sounds)
  • Reduction of wind noises
  • Compatible with using headphones telephones or a stethoscope with almost no feedback
  • Safe to wear 24/7 for up to 3 months at a time
  • The high-tech coating protects Lyric devices from moisture and earwax

  • The battery lasts up to 120 days

Lyric hearing aid cost

The cost of a Lyric device will largely depend on where you live and is only sold through certified providers on a subscription basis, so while a hearing care provider such as Costco may sell Phonak products, Costco currently doesn’t sell the Lyric hearing aid. The Lyric’s yearly subscription provides you with new devices each time you have the hearing aid replaced.
