Whatever the noise you hear, tinnitus is annoying.
Tinnitus is the medical term for the sensation of hearing sound in your ears when no external sound is present. Typically, sufferers describe the sound as “ringing in ears,” though others describe it as hissing, buzzing, whistling, roaring and even chirping.
While there currently is no known tinnitus cure, there are recommended ways to get tinnitus relief, including counseling and sound therapy.
Hearing aids can be an effective part of any sound therapy. According to the non-profit Better Hearing Institute, “the use of hearing aids improves communication, reduces the stress associated with intensive listening, and also can partially mask tinnitus.”1
If you or someone you care about suffers from tinnitus, contact a hearing professional like an audiologist, ENT doctor or hearing aid specialist right away. In the meantime, you can do further research on tinnitus and tinnitus treatment.
