What is Lyric and the Lyric Hearing Aid?

Lyric is known for being the first and only 100% invisible and extended-wear hearing aid available. Lyric Hearing Aid can be comfortably placed in the ear canal by an Authorized Lyric Partner (Peter Byrom is a certified Lyric Partner) and can be used for 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for months at a time. Unlike other types and brands of hearing aids, Lyric Hearing Aids are positioned completely inside the ear canal, and will also use the ear’s anatomy to help to provide natural sound quality and localisation cues.

Lyric Hearing Aids From Peter Byrom

Want a discreet hearing aid? Only you will know it’s there!

Lyric is an amazing innovation which allows you to live your life while we look after your hearing. It is revolutionary in that it is disposable, just like disposable contact lenses, and it sits comfortably deep within the ear canal for eight weeks at a time. At that stage you just pop into the local clinic and have a new one fitted.

Complementary Trial

The Lyric Hearing Aids is available for a complimentary trial. Your appointment will include video-otoscopy, ear wax removal where required, a full history and examination, and a hearing test. Then the correct size of Lyric will be measured and a live device placed in both your ears. You will have two follow up appointments, the first one after one week, the second after a fortnight. At this stage you can decide to keep the lyric or choose not to have lyric.

How does Lyric work?

The Lyric Hearing Aid works through the mechanical geometry of the Lyric core being stored safely inside soft, biocompatible foam seals that contour to the ear canal. This allows the system to ensure natural ventilation and also a stable placement. The Lyric battery has been specifically designed in order to withstand the deep ear environment for a number of months at a time. Lyric Hearing Aid will amplify sounds by using the natural mechanisms of the ear, the Lyric microphone and receiver will then further enhance this.

Crisp Clear Sound

The lyric is an analogue device providing crisp clear sound.

Great performance in background noise

Due to the lyric lying deep within the ear canal, it can make better use of the natural directionality and  high frequency boost compared to normal hearing aids, this gives greater understanding of speech in those noisy situations like in a restaurant or at a social occasion.

Simple to use

Once it has been placed precisely in the ear canal you can forget all about your hearing loss and enjoy life to the full.


So comfortable you will forget you are  wearing hearing aids.

Tinnitus Relief

Many people gain a great deal of benefit from using hearing aids to help treat tinnitus.

Are Lyric Hearing Aids safe?

Yes, absolutely Lyric is an FDA-cleared hearing aid and has undergone a range of extensive studying in hundreds of clinical research trials and patients since 2001. In over 15 years of clinical monitoring, there have been no reports of serious complications resulting from use of the Lyric Hearing Aid. Lyric was commercially launched in 2007 and since then has been safely worn by hundreds of thousands of patients across the UK and on a worldwide basis.

How long will a Lyric Hearing Aids last for?

Lyric Hearing Aids can be worn for months at a time, however we do advise that individual replacement needs will vary depending on the individual and the device battery life as it is subject to individual ear conditions, level of hearing loss and the environmental noise level.
