Understanding tinnitus


Tinnitus is a sensation of hearing sound in the absence of any external source. Individuals with tinnitus often perceive noises such as ringing, buzzing, hissing, or clicking in their ears or head. This condition can be persistent or intermittent and may vary in intensity. Tinnitus is not a disease itself but rather a symptom of an underlying issue, such as age-related hearing loss, exposure to loud noises, ear injuries, or circulatory system disorders. While it is not always curable, various management strategies and treatments exist to help individuals cope with and alleviate the impact of tinnitus on their daily lives. If you're experiencing persistent tinnitus, it's advisable to consult with a Hearing Care professional for a thorough evaluation and guidance.

Types of tinnitus

The batteries for your hearing aids are nearly as important as hearing aids themselves. A new battery will power your device on average for three to ten days before needing to be replaced depending on the size of your battery.
