Lyriclyric-hearing-aid-service-portland

Lyric® is the first and only extended wear hearing device that is 100% invisible. Lyric is comfortably placed in the ear canal by a Lyric trained hearing professional and can be worn 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for months at a time.* No surgery or anesthesia is required. Unlike many other hearing aids, Lyric is positioned completely inside the ear canal, so it uses your ear’s natural anatomy to provide exceptional sound quality and alleviate hearing problems. Lyric lets you hear better and live life to the fullest! 100% Invisible The placement of Lyric in the ear canal makes it totally invisible.No one will know why you are hearing better except you.

 

Effortless Hearing, 24/7Lyric can be used during your daily activities, such as exercising, showering, talking on the phone, and sleeping. There are no batteries to change, no maintenance is needed, and no daily insertion or removal is required. Natural Sound Quality Lyric’s placement deep in the ear canal allows the outer ear (the pinna) to direct sound into the ear canal naturally, resulting in improved directionality and localization, reduced feedback, and improved high frequency gain.

Otolens by Starkey

The S Series™ iQ OtoLens™, the world’s first invisible-in-the-canal (IIC) hearing aid. OtoLens is a custom-molded hearing aid built using Starkey’s Comfort Fit process and lives in the second bend of the ear, meaning that it is truly 100 percent invisible with minimal occlusion. OtoLens features the same technology and digital signal processing as Starkey’s leading product family, S Series iQ, and provides 35dB of gain which allows professionals to fit patients with moderate to severe hearing loss.

 

Esteem by Envoy

Esteem is designed to help improve the hearing of many adults with moderate to severe sensorineural hearing loss. Esteem is fully implanted in the middle ear. It is not a hearing aid.  The technology consists of the Sound Processor, implanted behind the outer ear, and two transducers (called the Sensor and Driver) that are implanted in the middle ear.

 

Because all the parts of Esteem are implanted, Esteem is invisible to you and others, making it a totally invisible alternative to hearing aids. The materials used to make Esteem have been proven safe and reliable in millions of pacemakers and other implanted medical devices. Esteem uses your own eardrum as a natural microphone, picking up sounds through the ear canal, thereby using the body’s natural anatomy to reduce the background noise, distortion, and acoustic feedback that people experience with conventional hearing aids.
