Tinnitus can be relentless

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again — but any time a subject gets an entire week dedicated to it, it must be because it’s important.

If you don’t know what tinnitus is – this article should help. And if you do know what tinnitus is or, worse, have it, you know it deserves at least a week’s worth of attention, thanks to its seriousness and pervasiveness.

A few things we know about tinnitus:

  • The BTA estimates that 10% of the population (1 in 10) suffer with tinnitus*.
  • Its effects can be devastating — physically, mentally, emotionally

As leaders in hearing health and wellness, Starkey — along with our partners — see the devastating effects of tinnitus every day. It’s why we developed our Multiflex Tinnitus Technology, which is built into all our new hearing aids and is clinically proven to provide tinnitus relief.

We’ll keep working to make our tinnitus technology even better, too. At least until a cure is found, it stops being a problem, and tinnitus no longer needs an entire week dedicated to its awareness. Our fingers are crossed!

If you want to find a hearing healthcare professional to talk to about tinnitus, we can help. Call 0800 042 0000 or we can connect you to a professional near you.
