Tinnitus

Tinnitus is the perception of sound when no corresponding environmental sound exists.

It usually sounds like ringing, clicking or hissing in your ears. Tinnitus is equally common in men and women and its prevalence increases with age (it occasionally affects children and is becoming prominent among teenagers – 17% of students now experience tinnitus or ringing in the ears according to the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association). According to the American Tinnitus Association, at least 12 million Americans have tinnitus and 1 million of these experience it so severely that it interferes with their daily activities (hearing, working or sleeping).

How Sound Oasis helps
Since it is generally believed that Tinnitus has no direct cure, it can be a very frustrating challenge. Thankfully in our consultations and discussions with the leading experts in the field, we discovered that there is hope. There are effective means to mitigate the effects. In partnership with our research collaborators, we have developed sounds which target a wide range of tinnitus symptoms in order to provide relief.

The solution is not the same for everyone so don't get discouraged if the first sound you test is not a perfect fix. Each tinnitus case is different and it can take some time and testing to identify what works best for you. Our doctors help us create a range of different sounds which target particular frequencies. We also have sounds such as full spectrum white noise, gray noise or brown noise which cover a wide range of frequencies. Lastly, you can take control of the frequency coverage of each sound by using our 10 band equalizer in the Tinnitus Therapy Pro App for Android and iOS. The App allows the volume of 10 frequency bands to be adjusted to get the most comfortable masking sound possible.

How will hearing experts treat my tinnitus?
Although there is no cure for tinnitus, scientists and doctors have discovered several treatments that may provide relief.

Maskers

Maskers are electronic devices that use sound to make tinnitus less noticeable. Maskers do not make tinnitus go away, but they are very effective in making the ringing or roaring sound far less noticeable. Sound Oasis sound therapy systems are the finest tinnitus masking devices in the world. We offer a wide range of models to suit your needs.

Hearing Aids
