Often tinnitus and hearing loss go hand in hand. Correctly fitted hearing aids will not only improve the hearing clarity but also significantly reduce a persons tinnitus awareness. This is especially the case if the person’s tinnitus pitch (frequency) is within the frequency range of the hearing aid. Furthermore, a number of major hearing aid manufacturer’s (Oticon, Starkey, Phonak, Siemens and Widex) are now producing very discreet, tinnitus specific hearing aids. These hearing aids have an additional therapy signal which can be customised by our audiologist to best reduce your tinnitus perception. Depending on the individuals specific needs, hearing aids can be fitted in conjunction with a clinical program under the Tinnitus Retraining Therapy protocol.
