With Hearing Devices… We know that if a person has tinnitus and also has a hearing loss, they may derive considerable relief from the tinnitus when they are using their hearing device. In many cases the relief is dramatic and complete. For some the relief may be a reduced perception of the ringing.
Masking devices resemble hearing devices and are designed to produce low-level sound that can reduce and in some cases eliminate the perception of tinnitus. Masking can also produce the phenomenon of residual inhibition, where the reduction or elimination of tinnitus perception continues for a short time after the masker is removed.
