It is estimated that 50 million American adults are bothered by chronic head noise, or tinnitus. Tinnitus is the tinkling, ringing or hissing heard in one or both ears when no external sound is present. Some people who suffer from tinnitus can pinpoint the exact moment the ringing in their ears began—perhaps following exposure to very loud noise—while others develop tinnitus gradually over time.
Nebraska Hearing Center now offers the Audibel A2 tinnitus device designed to offer lasting relief. It is nearly invisible and comfortable to wear, and works by creating a sound stimulus to soothe the irritating ringing sounds tinnitus sufferers hear. Because tinnitus is different for every patient, the patent-pending Multiflex Tinnitus Technology is designed with personalization and flexibility in mind, as well as relief in managing the condition. There are 16 bands of frequency adjustments which make it easy to shape the stimulus to fit the patient’s unique tinnitus experience. The tinnitus aid also allows patients to become active partners in fine-tuning relief to their precise preferences, which helps to ensure greater success.
