Lyric was designed to remain out of sight and out of mind. It is invisible in the ear canal and can be worn 24 hours per day, seven days a week for months at a time.
Lyric provides benefits unlike any other hearing aid for unrestricted living. It can be worn in the shower**, while wearing a helmet for active, physical sports and with headphones in. And because you can wear Lyric while sleeping, once you wake up, you don’t have to put them in or turn them on like traditional hearing aids.
Walker Hearing Clinic is one of Ireland’s leading suppliers of Lyric Hearing Aids.

Born in Silicon Valley in 2007, Lyric was invented by Dr Robert Schindler in collaboration with Ear, Nose and Throat physicians, audiologists and engineers. The first generation Lyric was then launched to the UK market by Phonak in 2011. Changing the future of technology, the small yet powerful device has transformed everyday life for those with a mild to moderately severe hearing deficit.
Lyric is engineered for people with mild to moderately severe hearing loss who do not want to be defined by their hearing loss. Because the Lyric device is so small and discreet, it is unnoticeable to others. With no battery changes and no need to remove the device daily, it means you have more freedom to live without the worry of your hearing device.
During your appointment, Lyric will be placed in your ear so you can experience the clear natural sound of an invisible hearing aid and understand the accompanying benefits.
Lyric is sold through authorised Lyric Providers on a subscription basis. A subscription covers one year — including replacement devices and servicing throughout the year period.
Each Lyric device lasts for months at a time. This duration can vary, depending on the patient and their individual ear conditions. However, unlike standard hearing aids — which need to be replaced — Lyric’s yearly subscription provides you with new devices on a regular basis.
Whenever you need a new Lyric, simply book an appointment with us. Your audiologist will fit you with a new in the ear hearing aid. Every replacement can be done in just a few minutes time.
There are no repairs or battery replacements needed, and you will receive technology updates as they become available.
Lyric delivers a more natural hearing experience because sound is processed analog. It also uses your natural ear anatomy to localize sound.
Once they are fit by a hearing care professional, they are designed to be worn 24 hours a day for months at a time. Better still, Lyric requires no maintenance or batteries to change or charge.
And they are truly invisible hearing aids — no one will know you are wearing them. This means you can decide whether or not you’d like to let people know you wear hearing aids.
An estimated 10–15% of a population has tinnitus but most cases go untreated. This is due to a lack of information and the fact that most people are unaware of who will understand their condition or assist them. While some cases are minor, some require more specific treatment to overcome possible long-term effects.
Although there is no cure for tinnitus, there are various effective forms of counseling and treatments available. Book a consultation with our expert audiologists to see if Lyric could provide relief from tinnitus.
Phonak Lyric, a state-of-the-art, 24/7 extended wear hearing device, is proven to help relieve tinnitus faster and by a greater degree than standard hearing aids2.
