Ear wax, or cerumen, serves an important function in keeping your ears safe from dirt, dust, and moisture. Normally ear wax washes away naturally, but for hearing aid wearers, a buildup of cerumen is common. Removing the excess cerumen will help you hear more clearly, especially if you wear hearing aids.
Causes of Tinnitus
Tinnitus is an annoying ringing, buzzing, or whooshing noise that only you can hear. Tinnitus can lead to discomfort, stress, and anxiety, and this will make the tinnitus even worse. You might think you’re going crazy, but these sounds are caused by your ears and brain.
If you have tinnitus, a tinnitus evaluation will determine the severity of your tinnitus. If tinnitus interferes with your work or personal life, getting hearing aids with built in tinnitus treatment programs can bring you relief, and allow you to enjoy your day without tinnitus.
Bluetooth Hearing Aids
For full connectivity and freedom, Bluetooth hearing aids wirelessly connect to the technology you use the most, like your smartphone, radio, and TV. You can access music, podcasts, news, or even driving directions, and have the audio stream right to your hearing aids. You’ll hear the sounds right in your ears and enjoy effortless hearing.
Cell Phone Accessories for Hearing Aids
