Tinnitus is the perception of sound when no actual external noise is present. Although it is commonly called “ringing in the ears,” tinnitus can manifest many different perceptions of sound, including buzzing, hissing, whistling, swooshing, and clicking.  Tinnitus can be both an acute (temporary) condition or a chronic (ongoing) health malady.

Millions of Americans experience tinnitus making it one of the most common health conditions in the country. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control estimates that nearly 15% of the general public — over 50 million Americans — experience some form of tinnitus. Roughly 20 million people struggle with burdensome chronic tinnitus, while 2 million have extreme and debilitating cases.

The Human Impact Of Tinnitus

Tinnitus can be a debilitating condition that negatively affects a patient's overall health and social well-being. Although most people who suffer from tinnitus classify their tinnitus as non-bothersome, even moderate cases can interfere with one's ability to work and socialize. People with tinnitus often experience depression, anxiety, sleep disturbances, irritability, or poor concentration. 

Although there is presently no known cure for tinnitus, there are very good, well-established tools and treatments that can significantly reduce the perceived burden of tinnitus.

Treatment Options and Outcomes:

The primary objective for all currently-available tinnitus treatment options is to lower the perceived burden of tinnitus, allowing the patient to live a more comfortable, unencumbered, and content life. No two patients and no two tinnitus cases are alike. As such, the “best” treatment option is often contingent on an array of factors unique to each patient. Moreover, successful management of tinnitus may require overlapping layers of treatment.

Below is a list of currently available treatment options:

Hearing Aids

Sound Therapies

Behavioral Therapies

Drug Therapies

TMJ Treatments

Experimental Therapies

WIDEX MOMENT™ NATURAL SOUND LIKE NO OTHER

Widex Zen Therapy is a form of sound therapy that utilizes a patented fractal technology (soft, calming chime-like tones played randomly). These tones are perceived just like music to the brain, providing the same stimulation and relaxation level. This technology also aids in alleviating the stress and anxiety associated with tinnitus. Over time, with consistent use, Widex Zen Therapy allows people to live their lives without the annoyance of tinnitus.

Even a great hearing aid has always sounded like a hearing aid – until now.

The revolutionary Widex Moment changes the game to deliver the purest, natural sound ever. Typically, sound processed in a hearing aid reaches the eardrum later than sound heard directly. And when these two ‘out of sync’ signals mix, you get an artificial sound. But now you can hear every moment - like you used to.
