Invisible - Lyric
While traditional hearing aids capture and process sound outside of the ear, Lyric uses the natural anatomy of the ear to amplify and give you a full, natural listening experience. Users experience greater clarity and better high frequency sound perception that conventional hearing aids. Because Lyric is placed in the ear canal near the eardrum by a trained professional, it is the world’s only 100% invisible hearing aid.

Modern hearing aids, a natural hearing experience, and renewed quality of life: This is Phonak, a brand of the Sonova Group, in a nutshell. For over 70 years, the Swiss hearing aid manufacturer has been setting new standards in the development of state-of-the-art, innovative hearing aids to match every budget, age, lifestyle, and type of hearing loss.
Behind-the-ear (BTE) hearing aids are versatile devices suitable for a wide range of hearing loss, and are available in various sizes. The smaller BTE options are virtually “invisible” as they disappear behind the ear. With the BTE models, sound is transmitted into the ear through a very discreet tube, which leads into a customized earmold. Because they are larger, BTE models have more space for electronic components than other types of hearing aids, giving them more room to house additional features and deliver advanced performance for a wider range of hearing loss types. Additionally, BTEs are comfortable, easy to mold, and easy for caretakers to assist with and maneuver.
In-the-ear hearing aids belong to the closed supply, ie the auditory canal is largely or completely closed. Volume control and program selection can be done via a remote control. To ensure that the devices fit perfectly, they are individually adapted to the ear.
Receiver-in-the-canal (RIC) hearing aids—also referred to as receiver-in-the-ear (RITE) or canal receiver technology (CRT)—are smaller than standard BTE models, but are easy to maneuver and can still house a variety of features. Like standard BTEs, they can be worn comfortably behind the ear. However, unlike regular BTE hearing aids, the RIC’s loudspeaker or “receiver” is located outside the housing and positioned at the end of a thin earwire, placed near the ear drum. Since generated sound only has to travel a very short distance with lower transmission loss, less sound energy (and battery power) is required to produce a superior listening experience.
