Tinnitus, characterized by a ringing or buzzing sound in the ears, impacts over 20 million chronic sufferers per year.  The affliction can be both irritating and disruptive. Some of the reported side effects are depression, difficulty concentrating, and insomnia. Fortunately the worst impacts affect only a minority of those with tinnitus, while most sufferers find it to be merely annoying.

Many wonder if there is a solution and if something can be done to mitigate this irritation.  

According to the American Tinnitus Association, there are two main types of tinnitus, objective tinnitus and subjective tinnitus. Subjective tinnitus is only audible to the person him or herself. This is the kind that impacts 99% of all patients. Objective tinnitus is a rare form of the condition, and  involves tinnitus that is actually audible to other people.  

Given the large number of people currently dealing with subjective tinnitus, it can be frustrating to learn that there is no cure for the condition, but there is relief.  And ClearSounds can help.

So, what do you do if you are suffering from tinnitus? A combination of therapies and behavioral modifications may be your best bet for finding relief. Make no mistake about it, tinnitus is connected to hearing loss, which makes ClearSounds hearing aids and other amplification devices arguably the easiest solution. Increased auditory stimulation to the brain, combined with the drowning out of the “buzzing” or “ringing” noises and improved communication with family and friends make hearing aids a one-stop-shop for reducing the irritating effects of tinnitus.

You don’t have to suffer in silence, let ClearSounds help and make the ringing and buzzing go away!
