How can hearing aids help tinnitus?

Often I lie in bed at night hearing ringing, buzzing and hissing in my ear non-stop. I’ve suffered with tinnitus for some time and the prospect of stopping it would make me extremely happy.

I’ve heard that hearing aids can help but I know that they amplify sounds so surely it would just make my tinnitus worse? How can hearing devices help?

Answer

There are many theoretical causes to tinnitus but a common reason for hearing loss is that a part of your listening range is lacking stimulus. The brain colours the area in with a sound that cannot be heard by anyone else but you.

By using a hearing aid, the gap in your listening range becomes ‘coloured in’ therefore it reduces your tinnitus. Often or not, the device can distract you from the tinnitus and you’ll only become aware of it when you are somewhere quiet.

Nowadays, there are specialist hearing aids that have specific tinnitus features to retrain the brain to perceive sounds at a lower level.
