Tinnitus is a condition in which a person perceives sound that is not actually present in the environment. It is often described as "ringing in the ears" but can include virtually any type of sound including whooshing, hissing, or whistling.
There are many possible causes for tinnitus but most cases are related to damage to the auditory system. This may or may not include subjective hearing loss. Often a single event or a condition unrelated to the hearing system may seem to trigger tinnitus.
An audiologist is necessary to evaluate your tinnitus and can determine if a treatable medical condition exists or if further evaluation from an ENT is necessary. Your audiologist can determine the possible source of your tinnitus and what course of treatment is most appropriate, if any.
SoundCure believes that tinnitus can almost always be treated and its symptoms improved in important ways.
Sound therapy is an effective tool in the treatment of tinnitus, but until now has not allowed for customization to each patient or the customization was part of a rigid, complex approach. SoundCure is changing that with Serenade, a simple, flexible, sound therapy system that is customized specifically to your tinnitus.
