Does Lyric Have a Clear and Natural Sound Quality?

Phonak Lyric hearing aids enhance natural sound. This is unlike other digital hearing aids, which aim at mimicking natural sounds. Phonak is a global hearing aid leader. They aim to manufacture hearing aids with a clear and natural sound. While traditional hearing aids collect sounds outside the ears, Lyric collects sound deep in the ear canal. When deep in the ear canal, Lyric helps in improving the directionality and localization of natural sounds.

Does Wearing Phonak Lyric Affect How my Voice Sounds?

You don’t have to worry about how your voice will sound when wearing Phonak Hearing aids. This quality is not often found in other hearing aids, especially those worn outside or behind the ear. Since Lyric is inserted deep into the ear canal, nothing compromises the sound of your voice. Phonak Lyrics mimics the natural sounds of the environment. Your voice here is no exception. With Phonak Lyric hearing aids, there’s a more negligible occlusion effect when you talk. This means the impact caused by booming in the ear reduces when you speak.

Does Wearing Phonak Lyric Hearing Aids Help with Tinnitus?

The good news is that wearing Phonak Lyric hearing aids can help in relieving symptoms of tinnitus. If tinnitus has become a bother to you, Lyric can provide assistance. You don’t have to worry that your tinnitus condition will lead to hearing deprivation when you wear Lyric hearing aids. Additionally, Lyric hearing aids will prove much helpful if tinnitus bothers you at night. Since you can go to bed while still wearing Lyric, it will solve your tinnitus problem over time. The deep insertion will offer a unique approach to relieving tinnitus during the day and night. People wearing Lyric hearing aids expect their tinnitus symptoms to clear with time. However, Phonak is still looking thoroughly into this issue to ascertain whether it is always true that Lyric helps in relieving symptoms of tinnitus.

Which is a Better Option Between Lyric 4 and Lyric 3?

Since Phonak leads in manufacturing hearing aids globally, it aims to offer the best products to the market. Their new hearing aid – Lyric 4 – has been designed to the tastes and preferences of a world that is technologically advanced. Lyric 4 has come with even more benefits than Lyric 3. Some of these benefits are:

  • Comfortable while wearing. The medial portion of Lyric 4 has been reduced by 0.33mm. This has made it more comfortable to fit deep into the ear canal. This design protects the delicate skin in the ear canal
  • More reliable. Unlike Lyric 3, this new module is more reliable. Lyric 4 withstands the environment within the ear canal. Even with a challenging environment, Lyric 4 has a debris collector that helps prevent clogging and impacts of cerumen

High fitting success rate. Lyric 4 fitting rate is above 75%. Reducing its size has made it possible to fit in well in the ear canal. This is good news to people with smaller ear canals.

What are the Potential Downsides of Phonak Lyric Hearing Aids?
