Tinnitus is bothersome. How it affects people differs from one to another: It whistles, hisses, swooshes, and jingles in their ears. Sometimes louder, sometimes quieter. Tinnitus is many people’s relentless companion and can lead to anxiety, sleep disorders, and even depression. In addition, it often goes hand in hand with hearing loss. For this reason, a tinnitus function has already been included in many Siemens hearing aids for some years now. It generates pleasant sounds which can direct from the unpleasant tinnitus by refocusing the wearer’s perception. Wearers can customize the sounds together with a hearing care professional (like Maria at A Atlantic) and regulate them themselves. Whereas to date the sounds had been static, the new Ocean Waves function now offers dynamically modulated, particularly relaxing sounds, as they replicate waves breaking on the shore. The user has a choice of four different types of ocean sounds, based on waves breaking on rocks, dunes, a pebble beach and a sand beach. (Quite a pleasant and relaxing selection to choose from)!
The Ocean Waves function is now a standard feature of the latest Siemens Ace, Pure, Carat, and Motion hearing aids, as well as, even the smallest Insio in-the-ear hearing instrument. Maria, as your hearing care professional, can also program an additional five types of sounds including, for example, so-called “pink noise”. This offers the users the possibility of selecting between the types of sound depending on the situation and the severity of the tinnitus. The volume can also be adjusted and all tinnitus settings are performed completely independently of the hearing support settings. For this, users of Android and Apple smartphones can also use the free touchControl remote control app.
