Tinnitus maskers are devices based on simple white noise machines which are used to add natural or artificial sound into a tinnitus sufferer's environment in order to mask or cover up the ringing. At Hearing Direct, you will find a selection of tinnitus maskers and aids to help ease the condition.
What are Tinnitus Maskers?
For tinnitus sufferers, maskers and aids are valuable options to support day-to-day living if the underlying condition cannot be treated. There is currently no real cure for tinnitus but tinnitus maskers can help ease the condition and lower its intensity. Tinnitus maskers produce low-level white noise or natural sounds in order to reduce the perception of tinnitus and "mask" the condition. Variations exist in the form of white noise generators, therapy balls, and relief products such as pillows. If you believe you may be suffering from tinnitus it is best to consult your GP or a healthcare professional.

How to Cope with Tinnitus
Tinnitus has many causes and it is important to identify the cause for your specific case as everyone's experience of tinnitus can differ. In most situations, ringing in the ears is not a sign of a serious medical issue but still, people should consider addressing the problem and consult with a health professional to make sure they have the correct diagnosis.
Tinnitus has a significant impact on the sufferer's lifestyle. However, the condition has the ability to improve naturally over time and treatment may no longer be required nor will ringing in the ears be present.
