Best Hearing Aids for Active Lifestyles
There is no doubt that hearing aids keep people with hearing loss connected to their loved ones and the things they love. Hearing aids enable us to continue to pursue our passions. With advanced technological features, hearing aids on the market today give wearers access to sounds and scenarios that might other be missed.
People with active lifestyles will revel in the diverse array of features available. Whether you are an athlete or a music lover, there is a hearing aid for your life on the go.
Lyric by Phonak
Touted as the “contact lens of hearing aids,” the Lyric by Phonak is the world’s first 24/7 hearing aid. The Lyric, which may be worn up to four months without change, is a tiny device, 100% invisible, that is inserted deep in the ear canal by an audiologist. With no need to change the battery regularly, the Lyric is removed and replaced once every few months by an audiologist.
Placed near the eardrum, the Lyric functions like the natural process of normal hearing, by amplifying sounds that travel through the ear canal. The sound quality provided by Lyric has received overwhelming praise: “88% of Lyric users agree that Lyric comes close to giving them their natural hearing back.”
There is one caveat to this remarkable device: while the Lyric is water resistant, it is not completely waterproof. If you are a swimmer or diver, it is recommended to remove the Lyric before going underwater. However, you may wear the Lyric in the shower, to sleep, and while exercising.
Aquaris by Siemens
The Aquaris by Siemens is the world’s first fully waterproof, dust proof, and shock proof hearing aid. Aquaris is an excellent choice for people who require extra resistance to moisture and debris for their hearing aids in their daily life. With an IP68 certification, the Aquaris prevents seepage and damage during continuous immersion in water. As such, the Aquaris is recommended for swimmers, divers, surfers, and anyone who wants a resilient hearing aid without worry.
Aquaris is also recommended for kids and teens with hearing loss, as it is sturdy and will withstand dust, debris, perspiration, water, and dirt. Additionally, Aquaris is covered in a scratch proof, non-slip, soft rubber surface, with GORE acoustic vents for microphone protection. As such, Aquaris is a reliably shock resistant hearing aid.
Aquaris is the choice of athletes such as football player Reed Doughty and dancer Kirsty Swain. It has also been awarded the Parent Tested, Parent Approved Seal of Approval, for its success in restoring hearing for kids and teens.
LiNX2 by ReSound

By connecting to your phone, you are able to stream phone conversations, music, and other media directly to the LiNX2 hearing aids in your ears.
