Revolutionary design allows Lyric to sit invisibly in the ear canal, out of sight and out of mind.
The world’s first extended –wear hearing device worn 24/7 for months at a time.
The placement of Lyric close to the eardrum enables the ear to naturally capture sound and funnel it towards the eardrum resulting in a pure, natural sound quality.
No daily insertion or removal, no batteries to change, no maintenance required. Ideal for convenience and dexterity issues.

Are you delaying the fitting of hearing aids because of aesthetics? Fortunately, Victorian Hearing offers a discreet solution with the invisible Lyric hearing aid. Lyric offers a new innovation in hearing devices, featuring a unique design and an in the canal placement that renders it 100% invisible. We are proud to be amongst the select few hearing clinics in Australia to offer these discreet hearing aids.
Lyric is an extended-wear invisible hearing device that’s comfortably placed in the canal of the ear by a trained hearing professional. It can be worn 24/7 for up to four months, with no maintenance needed during this time.
Unlike many other hearing aids, Lyric extended wear hearing aids are positioned completely in the canal and use your ear’s natural anatomy to funnel sound to your eardrum. This placement results in a reduction in background noise, allowing it to provide an exceptional and natural sound quality.
Lyric is a CE certified Class 2a (CE) or Class 1 (FDA) medical device. CE means that it has undergone a clinical evaluation and passed a conformity assessment to the standards of the Medical Devices Directive (MDD). This model is included in the same product category as all other hearing aids.
There are some people who may not be best suited to use Lyric invisible hearing devices. They work best for those whose hearing loss is mild to severe. There are some physical requirements for them to be placed in the canal: the ear canal must be at least 24mm, relatively straight, and as rounded as possible. This is assessed during a Lyric sizing and candidacy appointment. Medical conditions that exclude users include: Chronic Otitis Media, ear canal abnormalities, and any conditions that require regular MRI scans. Also, if the patient regularly dives or skydives, Lyric will not be a suitable hearing aid for them to wear.
Wax cannot be removed while the Lyric hearing aid is in the canal of the ear, and the wearer should not use cotton buds. Any wax build-up that may occur can be removed by a trained professional before a new invisible hearing device is placed into the ear canal.
A Lyric hearing aid must be removed for an MRI, but can stay in place for all other X-Rays, CT Scans, Bone density scans etc.
Yes, this is possible. However, if you are scheduled for surgery of any kind, make sure your doctor is aware beforehand that you wear an invisible in the canal hearing aid.
There should never be any pain whilst wearing the Lyric 24/7 hearing aid. There may be some awareness, annoyance and discomfort during the first 2 weeks after fitting, but these sensations usually go away after the adaption phase.
This is fine, as long as you have not had a recent stapedectomy (ear surgery to correct this hearing condition) and your tympanic membrane is intact.
Unfortunately, this condition is usually contra-indicated with the use of the Lyric hearing aid, as wearing it in the canal can cause pain to the exostoses.
No, you don’t – it is inserted and programmed by your Audiologist right in their office. Nor does it require any anaesthesia, and the process of insertion in the canal is quick and painless. Lyric invisible hearing aids can also be removed by the wearer at any point with a specially designed tool that will be provided upon insertion.
The Lyric hidden hearing aid uses a subscription model, with prices ranging from $2000 to $2400 per year for each ear. It’s important to note that the Lyric hearing aid price depends on the length of your subscription – the longer you subscribe for, the less you’ll pay each year.
