One of the many frustrating aspects of suffering from tinnitus is the fact that it is something you have to endure alone as the buzzing, ringing, or hissing sound you are constantly contending with is inside your head and those around you are oblivious to the discomfort you are experiencing.
At the moment there is no known cure for this condition but there is a range of products available that may be able to offer relief from the symptoms you are experiencing.
For example, Miracle-Ear’s hearing devices are here to offer tinnitus relief, and that is just one option to consider when you are looking at ways to control and reduce the impact of tinnitus in your life.
Using static noise to distract you
Miracle-Ear is one company that is working at providing a number of tinnitus-relief options and one idea that they have developed is an app that compliments a tinnitus program designed to provide some level of respite from the constant ringing in your ears.
It offers the GENIUS control app as a way to remotely control your tinnitus program in a discreet way. The aim is to mix a static sound with the tinnitus noise in order to divert your attention away from the tinnitus.
With five different preset static noises, it is hoped that you can create a customized program that helps you to relax and contend with tinnitus more easily.
Helping you get to sleep
One common complaint amongst tinnitus sufferers is that it can be very challenging to get to sleep at night with the sound in your ears making it difficult to relax.
One option to consider might be some amplified stereo pillow speakers.
Use the pillow in conjunction with a tinnitus relaxer and it might make it easier to drift off to sleep.
Hearing aids can help
It is widely acknowledged that hearing loss is fundamentally connected to some level of hearing loss and hearing aids might be able to help provide some relief.
You will be able to find a number of hearing aid products that offer auditory stimulation and are capable of augmenting the volume of external noise to a level where it is able to mask the sound of tinnitus you are experiencing.
Another form of sound amplification
Another modern option to consider would be cochlear implants.
These are surgically implanted devices that are designed to restore the sensation of sound to someone who has profound hearing problems or deafness. This product provides a form of sound amplification and that could prove useful in providing relief from tinnitus symptoms.
Portable relief option
Bluetooth technology has had a big impact on hearing aid options and there are products using this tech that could also provide relief from the stress of tinnitus.
A portable Bluetooth speaker that comes with a range of preset sounds will enable you to stream the music and sounds that you have found work for you, wherever you happen to be.
You can even connect to your pillow speakers at night time.
Tinnitus is hard to live with but at least you have modern technology and some innovative products to help you find relief from the symptoms.
