MINNEAPOLIS--()--Starkey Hearing Technologies, a global leader in hearing technology, has introduced a treatment solution that offers tinnitus sufferers a comfortable, discreet device designed to deliver all-day relief from what can be a debilitating ailment.
“Tinnitus affects each person uniquely; for some, it is a minor annoyance, but for others, tinnitus can seriously impair quality of life”
The Xino™ Tinnitus device, sold under the Starkey brand, uses advanced technology to create a customizable and comforting sound stimulus that can be fine-tuned and personalized for a person’s individual sound therapy needs. The nearly invisible device, worn behind the ear, delivers a innovative technology that personalizes treatment to address each sufferer’s specific tinnitus symptoms.
Tinnitus is the perception of sound in the ear or head where no external source is present. Commonly referred to as “ringing in the ears,” tinnitus can also be described as a chirping, buzzing, hissing or roaring sound in the ear. The most common causes of tinnitus are exposure to loud noise, aging, head injury or side effects from medication. Some 50 million American adults suffer from tinnitus.
“Tinnitus affects each person uniquely; for some, it is a minor annoyance, but for others, tinnitus can seriously impair quality of life,” said Chris McCormick, vice president of marketing, Starkey Hearing Technologies. “Xino Tinnitus offers hearing professionals superior flexibility when fitting patients for the device, and provides patients with more personalized tinnitus relief than other solutions.”
Since tinnitus is often accompanied by hearing loss, Xino Tinnitus also features advanced hearing aid technology to address both issues with one device. This makes it a completely configurable solution: as tinnitus therapy, a hearing aid, or both — whatever is needed by the patient.
“Tinnitus sufferers should speak with a hearing professional to determine if Xino Tinnitus is the right solution for them,” said McCormick. “This new option in tinnitus relief gives people the opportunity to take control of their symptoms today.”
