InSound Medical, makers of the popular Lyric Hearing device, states that seniors with hearing loss can continue to participate in more active sports, such as bicycling , running and golf, without the fear of losing their hearing device, and without worrying about sweat and wind noise getting in the way of hearing.
Lyric is the first 100% invisible hearing device that can be worn 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for up to 4 months at a time. Lyric is placed deep in the ear canal, completely out of sight. Because of its placement and because it is worn for months at a time, Lyric wearers don’t need to worry about their hearing device falling out while exercising. The deep canal placement also helps reduce wind noise, background noise and feedback, and Lyric is water resistant so sweat is not a problem. All of these attributes are great benefits for hearing aid wearers who enjoy an active lifestyle.
"Activities that I have been doing actually were a reason for getting a hearing aid in the first place,” said Jim, Lyric wearer.. “I had just started yoga for the first time in my life, I turn it up to the full volume and I hear everything the teacher says. I don’t have to worry about sweat, and it’s again, more natural."
"When you’re traveling 30 miles an hour down the road, you've got to know what’s behind. You cannot see from behind you. Even with mirrors or mirrors on your helmet, you don’t get the image. You've got to be able to hear everything including cars coming from the side. It’s all about sound and protection when it comes to riding a bike," said Pete, Lyric wearer.
