Lyric hearing aids are extended wear hearing aids that can be worn 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for months at a time. Because the hearing device fits completely in the ear canal ear canal

, it is 100% invisible and cannot be seen when worn. Helping distribute exceptional sound quality in both quiet and noisy environments, Lyric is placed deep in the ear canal by a Lyric trained hearing aid specialist. Lyric uses the outer ear to naturally direct sound into the ear canal without the need for multiple channels or settings. In addition, feedback is significantly reduced or eliminated.

Lyric hearing aid users find unmatched convenience because there are no hearing aid batteries to change and no hearing aid repairs needed. Lyric is a hassle-free hearing aid device that provides effortless hearing during daily activities including exercising, watching television, talking on the phone, showering, and even sleeping.

Thanks to the unique position in the ear canal, Lyric can also do so many things that people assume a hearing aid cannot do, such as wearing headphones, showering, sleeping and exercising. With the Lyric hearing aid, all these activities are totally trouble-free. Lyric wearers can simply forget about their hearing loss and enjoy a hassle-free solution without daily insertion, cleansing or battery exchange. The device sits close to the eardrum ear·drum

. This translates into natural sound quality while minimizing surrounding noise, feedback and the occlusion effect.

Approximately 50% of hearing loss patients could be fit with the previous version of Lyric due to the size or shape of the ear canal. The new Lyric was developed in order to increase the number of patients who could benefit from the device. According to Lyric, a hearing aid industry study has already revealed that the new Lyric dramatically improves the fit rate of Lyric while maintaining the benefits and excellent patient satisfaction of the Lyric hearing aid product.

The new Lyric hearing aid comes in a range of sizes, from extra small to extra large, and with the new sizing, more people will be able to wear a Lyric, depending on their type of hearing loss.

North County Audiology is offering free hearing screenings for the purpose of seeing if Lyric or traditional hearing devices are an appropriate solution for its patients. Free hearing screenings will be offered during the week of August 27-31, 2012.
