Houston, TX (PRWEB) April 10, 2014

The Center for Audiology is proud to announce that they are one of a choice group of hearing healthcare practices across the country selected to introduce the newest version of the Lyric extended-wear hearing aid to its patients, due for release in April.

Lyric extended-wear hearing aids are placed deep in the ear canal by a specially trained Lyric provider during a routine office visit and can be worn 24/7 for up to a few months at a time with no change of battery. No surgery or anesthesia is required.

Due to The Center for Audiology's constant commitment to provide the latest in cutting-edge technology to its patients, as well as expert fitting and verification techniques, The Center for Audiology quickly achieved Premier Elite status as a Lyric provider, reflecting the high volume of successful outcomes achieved with Lyric hearing aid fittings by their team of expert audiologists. They are currently the only Lyric provider in Houston to have achieved Premier Elite Lyric-provider status.

"In addition to the clear, natural sound quality that the Lyric device provides, many of our hearing-impaired patients are busy, active and youthful, and want a hearing solution that offers convenience and discreetness in addition to exceptional improvement in hearing," explains Sara Nagel, Au.D., owner and audiologist at The Center for Audiology. "With the introduction of the Lyric device to our portfolio of hearing solutions in 2011, we were able to provide a truly hassle-free option to our many patients who were seeking this type of revolutionary hearing solution."

An estimated 94 percent of current Lyric users would recommend Lyric to a friend of family member.

Some of the latest Lyric generation's unique benefits include:

  •     Next generation low-power, deep-ear chip that enables enhanced adaptive signal processing
  •     Improved moisture control
  •     Adaptive signal and compression processing to provide clean, natural and undistorted sound in a variety of listening situations.
  •     New programming options and software interface to provide increased fitting flexibility.

The Center for Audiology urges anyone experiencing signs of hearing loss to seek early treatment in order to prevent the many negative consequences associated with untreated hearing loss, including depression, anxiety, increased fatigue, poor relationships, social withdrawal and isolation, increased risk for dementia, accelerated rates of brain atrophy and decreased cognitive function. Along with improved hearing, hearing aids such as the Lyric device can significantly improve quality of life.
