Nanaimo residents with hearing loss, particularly women, are tuning in to some good news.
The Connect Hearing clinic in downtown Nanaimo is one of the first few clinics in the country to offer the Lyric.
The hearing aid is designed small enough to fit women’s ear canals, which tend to be shorter than men’s ear canals.
The device is aesthetically and practically a big improvement, eliminating the hassle of wearing a hearing aid and reducing much of the stigma associated with hearing loss.
The new Lyric can be worn 24/7 while showering, swimming or working out at the gym and left in the wearer’s ears, without changing batteries, for up to four months at a time.
