Tinnitus Maskers To Ease The Condition

Tinnitus maskers are devices based on simple white noise machines which are used to add natural or artificial sound into a tinnitus sufferer's environment in order to mask or cover up the ringing. At Hearing Direct, we have a great tinnitus aid to help ease the condition.

What are Tinnitus Maskers?

For tinnitus sufferers, maskers and aids are valuable options to support day-to-day living if the underlying condition cannot be treated. There is currently no real cure for tinnitus but tinnitus maskers can help ease the condition and lower its intensity. Tinnitus maskers produce low-level white noise or natural sounds in order to reduce the perception of tinnitus and “mask” the condition. Variations exist in the form of white noise generators, therapy balls, and relief products such as pillows. If you believe you may be suffering from tinnitus it is best to consult your GP or a healthcare professional.

White Noise Generators

These small devices can be worn in one of the ear canals or behind the ear and generate white noise sound with a maximum level of up to 60dB. The product trio's design is aimed to provide similar comfort levels to standard hearing aids. Depending on the spec, they will also require the relevant hearing aid batteries.

Sound Generators

An alternative to tinnitus aids is sound generators. Instead of being worn in or on the ear, these objects can instead be placed around the home in rooms of preference. Besides white noise, these devices provide multiple types of sounds. For example, ocean surf, birds, and a heartbeat. 

Tinnitus Relief

A popular method to quell the ringing in the ears comes in the form of tinnitus relief. The Tinnitus Relief Sound Pillow is as comfortable as a normal pillow but has an additional component - stereo speakers that can be connected to an outside sound generator in order to provide tinnitus relief during the night.

How to Cope with Tinnitus

Tinnitus has many causes and it is important to identify the cause for your specific case as everyone's experience of tinnitus can differ. In most situations, ringing in the ears is not a sign of a serious medical issue but still, people should consider addressing the problem and consult with a health professional to make sure they have the correct diagnosis. Tinnitus has a significant impact on the sufferer’s lifestyle. However, the condition has the ability to improve naturally over time and treatment may no longer be required nor will ringing in the ears be present. There are several solutions, however, that some people implement to ease the discomfort.
