Hearing aid reviews are fundamentally different from reviews for most other consumer electronic products. The reason is because individual factors, like degree of hearing loss, have a profound effect one's success and overall satisfaction with the product. When purchasing a hearing aid, you'll need to consider more than just your hearing outcome. Hearing aids are manufactured with varying levels of quality; some hearing aids are extremely durable, while others suffer frequent breakage. Battery life also varies between models, and manufacturer predictions of battery life are often optimistic. By collecting feedback from consumers, we can get a better idea of real world product durability and battery life... Continue reading

I've been using the Lyric for 10 years now and looking to switch for more power and features like Bluetooth. The Lyrics have been really great for their intended purpose and I will miss some of the unique capabilities that only the Lyric can provide, mainly hearing 24x7 vs. taking the hearing aids out at night.
I have worn CIC and BTE aids in the past and nothing compares to the comfort and convenience of Lyric. Just put them in and forget them till the batteries wear out (about 5-6 weeks). No need to take them out at night or fiddle with batteries. They have been great--BUT they are very pricey and the price just went up from $1800 per year per ear to $2200. That's $4400 each year which is getting outrageous. I'm getting to the point where despite the comfort and convenience I'm thinking about going back to digital aids (probably Costco). I know the technology has improved over the last few years so I'm going to give them a try. If they're comparable to the Lyric sond quality, I'll switch--if not, I may bite the bullet and pull out my wallet to stick with Lyric.
This is the third pair of aids I've tried, and the only ones I'll keep and live with. I especially like that I don't have to remove them every night. They are comfortable, and help with my tinnitus. Not inexpensive, but I've returned both less and more expensive competitive brands.
