Designed by Phonak, the Lyric is an invisible device that is placed into the ear canal of the patient by a hearing-health specialist at Connect Hearing. The device can be worn 24/7 - even in the shower or working out at the gym. The low-maintenance aspect is an especially valuable one for those consumers who are often outdoors or have fitness regimens they don't want impacted by hearing loss.

WireService.ca Press Release - VICTORIA, BRITISH COLUMBIA (November 2, 2012) - Canadians with hearing loss have found music to their ears - thanks to Connect Hearing, the nation's largest network of hearing-health clinics.

Connect Hearing

The Lyric hearing aid improves hearing, does it in a way that's not invasive and offers numerous benefits for those with active lifestyles. Designed by Phonak, the Lyric is an invisible device that is placed into the ear canal of the patient by a hearing-health specialist at Connect Hearing. The device can be worn 24/7 - even in the shower or working out at the gym. The low-maintenance aspect is an especially valuable one for those consumers who are often outdoors or have fitness regimens they don't want impacted by hearing loss.

"This product is an example of the contemporary hearing aids that remove much of the stigma typically associated with hearing aids. No one will know you are wearing them and they are hassle-free," says MJ DeSousa, Connect Hearing's Director of Professional Practice.

"For anyone who has ever felt awkward or self-conscious about wearing hearing aids, those days are gone because of devices like Lyric and other modern hearing aids. All a person with hearing loss has to do is visit a Connect Hearing clinic for a complimentary hearing screening. If they need a hearing device, the most appropriate solutions will be recommended for them. Active Canadians will find that Lyric is an excellent option that keeps them connected to the people and hobbies they love."

The Lyric devices can remain in the patient's inner ear until the batteries need to be replaced, which can be up to four months.

"I switched to them a little over a year ago and it has totally changed the quality of my life," says Jeremy Williams, a musician from Regina, Saskatchewan, age 40. "I'm a father of four and so am able to communicate clearly and understand what my children are saying, and am so thankful for that interaction and the memories I haven't missed because of them."

To find out more about Lyric hearing devices and about receiving a complimentary hearing screening, visit Connect Hearing's website at http://www.connecthearing.ca/. The website will direct you to the clinics that offer Lyric.
