      Top products for tinnitus relief

      Do you have ringing, buzzing, hissing or other sounds in your ears or head that others can’t hear? It’s common for people with hearing loss to also experience tinnitus. Until there’s a cure, there are products to help manage tinnitus and stop it taking over your life.

      Tinnitus affects people in different ways. Some people aren’t bothered by it or find it only mildly annoying. For others, it can be a more noticeable and troublesome. If tinnitus is affecting you, or a loved one, then sound therapy can be a great help.

      Sound therapy (also known as sound enrichment) provides a welcome distraction from tinnitus. Listening to relaxing sounds makes the condition less noticeable and reduces the stress that can make it worse. It’s best to set the volume level so that it roughly matches the sounds you hear. By focusing on the sound therapy, your brain will learn to filter out the tinnitus. This can be very effective if it’s part of your regular routine and will help the symptoms become less intrusive over time.

      One of the most popular types of sound therapy is a tinnitus relaxer. There’s a variety of weird and wonderful soothing sounds available, from pulsating white noise to birdsong and cosmic echoes. Experiment with different ones to find what works best for you. Don’t worry about them being repetitive. Most tinnitus sounds are carefully developed to avoid a clear ‘loop’ (so you’re unlikely to recognise the same particular sound over and over).

      There are tinnitus relaxers to suit every lifestyle. Some have timer options, others an alarm clock function, or a radio which can also be used as an alarm. Plus, there are those that double up as portable speakers, or have cables/Bluetooth, so you can connect them to your smartphone to listen to music, podcasts and tinnitus apps.

      Tinnitus can be more noticeable when it’s quiet, especially at night when you’re trying to sleep. The constant ringing or buzzing in your ears can make it difficult to switch off. That’s why our range of tinnitus products includes pillow speakers, sleep headbands and sound pillows. They can connect to a tinnitus relaxer, stereo or personal music device to help you tune out tinnitus, without disturbing others.
