Do you hear ringing, buzzing or whistling sounds, with no external source? You’re not alone. The condition is called tinnitus and it affects 50 million people in the United States.

The noise can be intermittent or continuous, and can vary in loudness. Tinnitus is caused by bent or broken auditory hairs sending random electrical impulses to the brain, which the brain interprets as sound. The condition can be caused by a large number of things ranging from earwax to your diet, but the most common cause of Tinnitus is excessive exposure to loud noise. You may have noticed your ears ringing after leaving a loud concert, but were relieved to find the sounds went away after a few hours. For some people the ringing never goes away.

90% of people with tinnitus also have some degree of hearing loss and most get relief from their buzzing and head noises with the use of hearing aids.

Few Ailments are as Subjective as Tinnitus…

From what it sounds like to when it’s most annoying to how debilitating it can be, tinnitus affects every person differently. Our NuEar SDS Tinnitus technology tackles the subjective nature of tinnitus head-on while also treating your hearing loss– all in a nearly invisible Receivers in canal (RIC) hearing aid.

The Multiflex Tinnitus Technology in the hearing aid creates a patient-preferred sound stimulus designed to deliver the one thing every sufferer wants – relief. It makes tinnitus manageable for patients who have been frustrated by their inability to find consistent personalized relief and a solution to their hearing loss. The personalized sound therapy will mask your tinnitus and allow you to focus on more important things, like the sounds you actually want to hear.

Our NuEar SDS Tinnitus technology is available in the following styles: Receiver in Canal, Invisible in Canal,Behind the Ear and Completely in Canal.

At this time, tinnitus technology can only be offered by our audiology staff at select locations.
