Besides amplifying the sounds around us, most of our hearing aids also include a tinnitus therapy feature. How does this work?
In very quiet hearing environments, regular hearing aids don’t have enough external sounds to amplify and distract a wearer from tinnitus. This is when the tinnitus therapy feature comes in. By emitting a customized therapy signal — a soothing sound like waves rolling into a beach — it distracts the wearer from focusing on the ringing in the ears. Many of our hearing instruments are equipped with different therapy signal types, and can be adjusted to provide relief from tinnitus with and without amplification.
Many of the manufacturers that we fit use technology that is clinically proven to reduce listening effort for wearers. In addition, some hearing instruments have programming options so we can customize the tinnitus therapy feature for each and every user.
Here are some examples:
