Tinnitus is a perception of sound heard within the ears. It is often described as a ringing, buzzing or humming sound and can occur with or without hearing loss.
The use of amplified sound via hearing aids is extremely helpful for masking the tinnitus. However, traditional hearing aids need to be removed when sleeping. Once the sound is removed, the tinnitus becomes more noticeable at a time when you need relief the most.
Although Lyric was originally not designed to alleviate tinnitus, many Lyric patients are experiencing relief from their tinnitus during the daytime and of course, whilst asleep.
