Question: Do hearing aids help with ringing in the ears (tinnitus)?

Answer:

Tinnitus has dozens of possible causes and it affects every individual differently, so it’s important to understand that while there is no cure, there are several ways to manage the symptoms. Successful treatment depends on the individual and the degree of tinnitus you have. However, hearing aids with special programs designed to treat tinnitus have helped improve the quality of life for many tinnitus sufferers.

Some models of hearing aids can help decrease the effect of tinnitus by masking the sound with white noise. The first hearing aid fitting will help determine what treatment will be best for you, because the tinnitus will either become less audible or—in some cases—could even be amplified. By adjusting the hearing aid programs, your provider will work to isolate the problem by focusing on the frequencies that match your tinnitus. This allows your hearing aids to effectively mask the tinnitus while you are wearing them.
