One in ten Australians live with tinnitus, a condition which causes ringing, buzzing, humming or whooshing noises in the ears. Tinnitus is associated, in 90% of cases, with hearing loss, but many of those living with the disorder feel they aren’t getting enough help.
Tinnitus involves hearing noises in the ears that come from inside the head, rather than an external source. This ringing, buzzing or humming can be in one or both ears and over time can impact your quality of life. In many cases, it is a result of underlying hearing loss, so the good news is that the latest technology in hearing aids can often help bring relief.
According to the Australian Tinnitus Association, studies have ‘strongly suggested that for a significant number of people, hearing aids do reduce the effect of tinnitus’. The ability of hearing aids to amplify sounds around them can make the noises associated with tinnitus less noticeable. Amplifon offers state of the art digital hearing aids which can be tailored to suit a person’s individual hearing needs. Some models come with tinnitus control programs.
Thanks to the advice from an audiologist or audiometrist at Amplifon, people across Australia have found relief from tinnitus and restored their quality of life.
