I had my appointment this morning and am currently trying the devices free for 30 days. I was quoted $2900/ year which includes unlimited office visits and replacement devices. (This was a promo rate at my office. They said after this month it’ll go up to $3200/ year). You have to go in at least every 120 days for replacements.
So far, I am very pleased with the Lyric aids. They are completely invisible to anyone looking at your ear. The sound of my own voice is far superior to the CICs that I currently own. I can place my hands over my ears and get no feedback at all. They promise that sweating and getting wet are no problem, as the aids form a tight seal around the ear canal, allowing no moisture behind the device. If you swim, you’re not supposed to really submerge your head too much. For me, that’s not really a problem. I don’t swim all that much, and if I do, it doesn’t bother me to not put my head under the water for extended periods of time.
It comes with a magnet that you can use to adjust the volume or put the devices in sleep mode. Sleep mode allows you to experience your regular, bad hearing for sleeping. You can also turn them completely off if you want. It’s very easy to operate.
It hasn’t been 24 hours yet, but I’m very happy and excited so far. If anyone has questions, feel free to ask me. I’ll let you all know how the month progresses.
