Hearing aids have been widely shown to help tinnitus sufferers better cope. By restoring your hearing with hearing aids, you can directly improve your tinnitus. But even if it doesn’t lower the tinnitus volume, hearing aids can still help you cope by amplifying other sounds that you want to hear. By turning up the volume of your surroundings, you are no longer forced to only hear your tinnitus.
Secondly, our hearing aids come with the Widex Zen tinnitus masking features that can play amplified tones, white noise, music, or nature sounds directly into the ear to help your brain focus on a different sound and reduce the impact of tinnitus. Our Audiologists can run a series of tests to figure out the pitch and intensity of your tinnitus, and program your hearing aid accordingly. And when it seems quieter, it’s less bothersome and the brain can slowly learn to tune it out.
