Tinnitus Sounds in Hearing Aids
Hearing loss and tinnitus often go together. Hearing loss affects the auditory input to the brain, making it a common cause of tinnitus. Symptoms of tinnitus can vary from person to person. However, using hearing aids to improve hearing can help reduce tinnitus symptoms.
Your hearing aids come with features to help you manage tinnitus on a daily basis, as well as reduce tinnitus by improving hearing.
Sound therapy for tinnitus can include playing calming tones, white noise, or personalized sounds through your hearing aids. This can help distract you from the annoying sounds of tinnitus and let you focus on more important things.
