Tinnitus is a condition in which a person perceives sound that is not actually present in the environment. It is often described as “ringing in the ears” but can include virtually any type of sound including whooshing, hissing, or whistling.
Assistive Listening Devices
Several types of ALDs are available to improve sound transmission for people with hearing loss. Some are designed for large facilities such as classrooms, theaters, places of worship, and airports. Other types are intended for personal use in small settings and for one-on-one conversations.
First developed in the 1980’s, a cochlear implant is a device, surgically implanted my an otologist and programmed by an audiologist, that electrically stimulates the auditory nerve in order for the brain to perceive sounds.
