If you rely on earring aids to improve communication with loved ones, improve listening environments, or improve your quality of life, then you know the discomfort and inconvenience are often a trade-off for living life on your terms.
Introducing Phonak Lyric™.
Similar to a contact lens for your ear, Phonak Lyric hearing aids offer complete invisibility and comfort so you can focus on enjoying your day-to-day without the frustration of traditional hearing options.
Whether you’re looking to upgrade your long-term solution and find a new brand, or you’re looking into your first device, read on to discover everything you need to know about Phonak Lyric hearing aids.
What are Phonak Lyric hearing aids?
Phonak Lyric hearing aids are a revolutionary hearing aid product designed to remain out of sight and out of mind.
While many traditional hearing devices require removal for sleep or showering, or end up as frustrating additions that can get in the way of life’s enjoyable moments, Phonak Lyric hearing aids are engineered to be invisible.
More than a marketing buzzword, this means these devices are 100% invisible and placed in the ear canal. Inserted approximately 4mm from the Tympanic Membrane, no part of the hearing aid can be seen.
Inserted by trained hearing and audiology professionals, the result is a truly natural listening experience that doesn’t become a headache, frustration, or chore among your routine.

Primary benefits of Phonak Lyric hearing aids
When it comes to the hearing devices you, or your loved ones, use, comfort and convenience are top of mind.
Phonak Lyric devices are made to support anyone who’s ever thought or said the following:
- “My hearing aids are uncomfortable”
- ”I’m sick of taking them on and off all day”
- “I can hear whistling noises for no reason”
- “The sound isn’t clear like it used to be”
Lyric hearing aids solve these problems (and more) by being inserted into your ear canal. Offering unrestricted living, the placement of the device means you can shower with it in, wear it during sleep, and forget about your device for 24 hours a day, up to months at a time.
Covering convenience and comfort, a Lyric hearing aid by Phonak provides natural placement for improved hearing and sound – and is preferred by 86% of people who wore traditional hearing devices.
- 100% invisible
- No daily hassle or frustration
- No batteries to charge or change
- Clear, natural sound using ear anatomy
- Lightweight and comfortable materials
- 24/7 functionality (wear in the shower or bed)
BONUS: Roughly 2 out of every 3 Australians will suffer from some form of tinnitus in their life. Lyric hearing aids may help reduce tinnitus annoyance faster than traditional hearing devices, so speak to your WA hearing specialist to find out if a Lyric device would work for you.
How does a Phonak Lyric hearing aid work?
Comfort and convenience are only valuable if your hearing aid also provides clarity of sound – and that’s where Lyric devices thrive.
While traditional hearing devices (you may have used these in the past or be using them currently) capture and process sound outside your ear, a Lyric hearing aid uses the natural anatomy of your ear to amplify sound and deliver a more natural listening experience?
Placed within 4mm of the Tympanic Membrane, the natural effects of the pinna (the visible portion of the outer ear), are replicated. Covering sound directionality and localisation, you enjoy a more natural experience without artificial amplification.
How is this type of hearing aid installed?
With no surgery or anesthetic required, installation is provided by your local trained Hearing Care Professional (HCP). Once installed, your Lyric hearing aid can remain in place for months at a time (approximately 2.5 months is recommended). And, thanks to the innovative design and functionality, you can change the settings of your device using a hands-free remote control.
With no battery inside your device and no power source needed, it’s never been easier to enjoy each day without the nagging thought of “I need to deal with my hearing aid before I can relax” sitting in the back of your mind.
PLEASE NOTE: Prior to fitting, your HCP will establish whether a Phonak Lyric hearing aid is right for you. This requires an inspection using a microscope to establish if your ear is healthy, as well as any necessary sizing requirements.

What is it made of?
It’s natural to be curious about the products you use every day. With an understanding that hearing aids should reflect comfort and longevity, Lyric devices include a soft foam seal made from a breathable, biocompatible material.
This has the dual effect of providing a secure fit without inconvenience or discomfort while allowing moisture to move from your ear (the moisture vapour transfer rate). This reduces the chance of wet ears and non-infectious otitis externa (inflammation of the ear canal).
The soft materials used also provide capillary pressure onto the wall of the external auditory canal (meatus) to prevent feedback or injury.
Lyric hearing aids also contain zinc-air batteries designed to withstand warm and moist conditions (the type you’d find in and around your ear). Combined with the low gain needed to amplify sound, the result is a battery that can last for months without interruption.
