The Phonak Lyric is the industry's first and only extended-wear hearing aid, and we're excited to announce that the Phonak Lyric will be available in our Phoenix clinic. We are in the final stages of certification and beta testing with current patients and starting July 6th, 2021, we'll start accepting new patients for the invisible Lyric hearing aid. In the video below, listen to Dr. Cliff Olson explain our reasoning behind adding this device and the certification process.
Why does the Lyric require specialized training to fit our patients? The Phonak Lyric is a hearing aid that goes deep into the ear canal and stays there for up to three months. As a result, getting the fit just right takes some time. Aware of how tricky it is to fit, Phonak has begun limiting the availability of the Lyric to a select few hearing clinics to ensure that only the best hearing providers would befitting the Lyric. As a provider of some of the most cutting-edge hearing devices, we wanted Lyric to be available to our patients as well. This isn't the first time we've fitted the Phonak, and we're excited to get back into the swing of things with this innovative hearing aid.
Let's take a closer look at what the Phonak Lyric provides.
Thanks to Lyric, those with hearing loss can now have an ultra-compact size while also getting the improved hearing they're looking for. These tiny gadgets are custom-fit and inserted deep into the ear canal, where they are nearly invisible to your conversation partners. You don't have to bother about daily hassles like putting the device on or taking it off or changing batteries because it stays in the ear canal for months at a time, so you can forget about your hearing loss and spend time connecting with friends and loved ones.
Lyric employs some of the most cutting-edge technology available. The yellow ear seals are constructed of a soft biocompatible substance that fits snugly into most ear canals and provides long-term comfort. Its tiny battery was specifically engineered to last up to 120 days, so you'll never have to replace it. Its microphone and receiver are located in the ear canal, utilizing the ear's natural composition to magnify and provide you with a more natural listening experience.
● Located deep within the ear canal and completely hidden from view.
● Enjoy hearing that it is always on 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
● Keep your hearing aids on while exercising, washing, talking on the phone, or sleeping.

According to recent research by Phonak, 99 percent of patients preferred Lyric over their previous hearing aids, 95 percent preferred the sound quality of Lyric over their previous hearing aids, and 96 percent would recommend Lyric to a friend or loved one. We're pleased to begin offering the Phonak Lyric to our patients. This is a quality product that has stood the test of time.
