Lyric Reviews - By long time wearers.

How has Lyric changed your life?

  • "Convenience is amazing. It’s invisible. You can control the volume. It’s easy and doesn’t make me feel old. It took me about two months to adjust to hearing every sound. There were so many sounds I had not heard in years. My tinnitus (ringing in the ears) went away since I started wearing Lyric. I realize now how hard I was working to try to follow conversations before I had my Lyrics. It was exhausting, and I began to withdraw from conversations. Now social interactions are easy."

    Lyric Wearer Since 2016

  • "Lyric has changed my life because I can hear! I like Lyrics because I don’t have to take them in and out each day. After years of experiencing great hearing with Lyrics, I brought my 98 year old mom in to be fit. With both of us wearing Lyrics, we are enjoy our conversations and time together so much more. It’s great because she has arthritis and doesn’t have to fuss with batteries. We love the great service we get at the CSG Better Hearing Center."

    Lyric Wearer Since 2009

  • "Lyric allows me to work and do all the active activities that I like. It has changed my whole life. The first thing that struck me was that I could hear like I did when I was a child. Before Lyric was available, I didn’t get a hearing aid because I didn’t want anyone to know that I wore one. I love the fact that no one knows that I am wearing it. I don’t have to worry about batteries. I don’t have to worry about losing it or the expense of replacing a lost hearing aid. I teach at a university and I can her all my students when they talk to me."

    Lyric Wearer Since 2008

  • "Lyric is convenient. No hassles with batteries. Now that my wife and I both wear Lyric, the TV doesn’t have to be so loud. I can’t feel it in my ear, so I don’t think about it. Tamara Anderson makes Lyric work for me, and the care and service she provides is superb."

    Lyric Wearer Since 2011

  • "Better Hearing Center has changed my life; when diagnosed with a hearing loss, I was taken by surprise and it was hard to adjust until with Better Hearing Center's help, I received my incredible Lyric hearing aids which are invisible and can stay in place for up to 3 mos. Tamara, the Lyric specialist, and the office staff have been kind, patient, and great to work with."


  • "I don’t have to work so hard to follow conversations, which makes life less stressful. I do not suffer from depression, as so many who have hearing loss do. I am happier."

    Lyric Wearer Since 2010

  • "My husband has tried many hearing devices over the years, and Lyric is the only one that really works for his specific hearing issues. Because of his health issues, it is especially beneficial that he can interact with his doctors in his many appointments. My life is so much better because my husband can hear. Lyric has improved so much over the years he has worn it, so I would advise those who may have tried it unsuccessfully in the past to try it again."

    Wife of Lyric Wearer Since 2008

  • "My mom lives in an assisted living facility and she has dementia. The best part about Lyric is that she can’t remove it from her ear and lose it. It’s invisible and she can’t feel it, so she doesn’t think it’s there and doesn’t try to remove it. With other devices she wore previously, she would take them out and we’d look everywhere for them. She also hears better with Lyric than with other devices she’s worn in the past. The battery issue with traditional hearing aids was also a huge deal and hassle due to dexterity issues."
