With the exception of audiologists and the rare hearing enthusiast, most people don't find the topic of hearing aids of much interest. So when a hearing aid gets as much buzz as Lyric has, it's hard to ignore. The Lyric hearing aid has been covered by the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Good Morning America, The Doctors, and Dr. Oz.
