Tinnitus ("TIN-a-tus" or "Tin-EYE-tus") is the medical term for the sensation of hearing sounds in your ears or head when no external sound is present. People who suffer from tinnitus typically describe the sound as "ringing in ears," though others describe it as hissing, buzzing, pulsing, roaring and even chirping.
According to the American Tinnitus Association (ATA), 50 million Americans experience tinnitus. It can occur in one ear or both, can be sporadic or constant, and can have volume ranging from subtle to debilitating. While there is no known cure for tinnitus, there are many tinnitus treatment strategies designed to help sufferers find relief.
One of the most effective forms of treatment, according to the ATA, is sound therapy, which uses sound to make tinnitus less noticeable and take the person’s mind off it.
Amplification from hearing aids is one component of sound therapy that has been shown to provide relief. Starkey Hearing Technologies also offers another promising sound therapy device designed to bring personalized relief to tinnitus sufferers - the Audibel A2 Tinnitus.
The Audibel A2 Tinnitus (available in our RIC style) is designed to deliver all-day tinnitus relief by tackling the personal nature of tinnitus head-on.
