Before I started wearing the Lyric hearing aid, I wore a traditional hearing aid. Hearing in noisy places, as well as on the phone, was very difficult for me but I figured it was just something I had to deal with. Well, I will never forget the day I walked out of Brooklyn Audiology with the Lyric in my ear. My cell phone rang and I was shocked beyond words. I could hear it! I was able to have a conversation on the phone for the first time. Then, when I walked outside and got onto a noisy bus, I could still hear! The change was miraculous! Sometimes, between Lyric changes, I will put on my traditional hearing aid just to remind myself how lucky I am to be wearing the Lyric now. You really have to experience it to believe it!
