Phonak Lyric

Hi,

Has anyone tried the Phonak Lyric hearing aids?

https://www.phonak.com/uk/en/hearing...ring-aids.html


Would you recommend?, quite pricey at roughly €4000 every year.

Is it uncomfortable getting them changed?, how long does it take?

Any info appreciated.

I wonder how the ear copes with wax accumulation? When you first get a new set of aids it seems to take a while to get used to them and can cause a small amount of irritation for a little while till they 'settle in', I am not sure I would like aids as a (semi) permanent fixture.

You don't buy the hearing aids, you pay an annual subscription for a service and every 3 months you go to their practice and have the old aids removed and new ones put in.

Audi Lab hearing practice in Sutton.

Because Lyric is placed in the ear canal near the eardrum by a trained professional
Does it then stay there for the entire time? Because personally speaking, couldn't do that. Ears can get waxy as it is; 24/7 hearing aids would cause me bad issues.

Also, how do they handle water pressure, if swimming?

You wear an ear plugs when swimming. Yeah, they stay in 24/7 and are changed every couple of months by the practice.

Oh hell no. I'd get wax issues within no time!
