Many tinnitus patients also suffer from some degree of hearing loss.
Tinnitus therapy hearing aids divert attention away from the disturbing tinnitus sounds. They make it easier to listen to external sounds instead of permanently concentrating on annoying internal sounds. The sound emitted by the hearing aids draws focus away from the tinnitus.
Siemens hearing aids with the tinnitus therapy feature can be used as hearing aids alone or in combination with a tinnitus therapy signal. Using Ace™, Pure®, Aquaris™, Siemens Life™, Insio™ or Orion™ for tinnitus therapy, you can choose from four different therapy signals. Your hearing care professional can fine-tune the therapy signal so that can be precisely set to suit you. It diverts attention from the annoying effects of tinnitus and makes it easier to focus on external sounds—reducing strain and helping provide a more peaceful state of mind.
Hyperacusis is when certain environmental sounds are perceived as painfully loud. Thanks to their flexible programming, some Siemens hearing aids can be used for hyperacusis treatment and can provide comfort to the wearer.
