Newport Beach, California (PRWEB) May 06, 2012
Shohet Ear Associates is proud to present the Lyric, an extended wear hearing device that can be worn 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for months at a time. Because it sits completely in the ear canal, it is 100% invisible and cannot be seen when worn. Previously, only 42 percent of patients could be fit with the device due to the size or shape of the ear canal. The new Lyric devices come in a range of sizes, from extra small to extra large. With the new sizing, three out of four people will be able to wear a Lyric, depending on their type of hearing loss.
Because Lyric is placed deep in the ear canal, it helps deliver exceptional sound quality in both quiet and noisy environments. Lyric uses the outer ear to naturally direct sound into the ear canal without the need for multiple channels or settings. The placement of Lyric reduces or eliminates the plugged up feeling and the echo or hollowness that some people experience when they speak while wearing a hearing aid. In addition, feedback (the high pitched squeal) is significantly reduced or eliminated.
Patients find unparalleled convenience because there are no batteries to change and no repairs needed. Lyric provides effortless hearing during daily activities such as exercising, talking on the phone, showering, and even sleeping. When the battery is depleted wearers return to the office and have a new device inserted in the ear.
Shohet Ear Associates was the first practice in Orange County and the second in Southern California to offer Lyric to patients. Shohet Ear Associates is compiling a waiting list of patients who would like to be sized and fit with the new Lyric. To be put on the waiting list or to obtain more information, call (949) 631-HEAR.
