While there is currently no cure for tinnitus, our audiologists can provide treatment. Patients can still get relief from tinnitus by treating the symptoms of the condition. The most common treatment for tinnitus is utilizing sound therapy with either hearing aids or tinnitus maskers that help the brain ignore the specific tinnitus frequency.
Tinnitus Treatment Options
Hearing aids are especially helpful for tinnitus relief if the patient suffers from both tinnitus as well as some type of hearing loss. Our audiologists have several options that, depending on your particular condition, that assist in the treatment of tinnitus:
- ReSound Verso TS offers advanced tinnitus therapy tools such as a white noise generator, frequency shaper, volume control of noise, environmental steering, amplitude modulation and streaming sound signals.
- Phonak Audéo Q’s are able to generate sounds which reduce the annoyance of tinnitus.
- Widex Zen Therapy is a unique approach that combines sound stimulation, counseling, stress reduction as well as amplification depending on your level of tinnitus.
- Starkey Hearing Technologies offers the Xino Tinnitus which creates a customizable and comforting sound stimulus that you and your audiologist can fine-tune to soothe the unique, irritating sounds you hear, giving you all day tinnitus relief.
Just because there is not a cure for tinnitus does not mean that a patient should not receive treatment for tinnitus. Untreated tinnitus can have a significant impact on an individual’s quality of life; fatigue, depression, anxiety, irritability, sleep problems, lack of concentration and stress are prevalent in suffers from tinnitus. Getting some sort of tinnitus relief might not directly affect the tinnitus; however, it will certainly help restore your quality of life.

We want to thank Dr. Johnson and the staff at the South Scottsdale office, for their prompt service, when I had a problem, with one of my hearing aids. They saw me within an hour of my call to their office and resolved the problem, in a few minutes. We appreciate a business that is so helpful and caring.
As a person who was just diagnosed with tinnitus and some hearing loss, I decided to see Dr. Gary Johnson and discuss if hearing aids would be beneficial to me. Dr. Johnson gave me a thorough examination and evaluation and recommended hearing aids for me to help with the hearing loss and help quiet the tinnitus. I have been wearing my new hearing aids for about 2 months now and I am so happy with them. Dr. Johnson did a wonderful job evaluating what would work for me. He is very pleasant, listens to the needs of the patient, answers all questions and makes you feel very comfortable. I have been helped with the hearing aids for both my tinnitus and hearing loss. Don’t hesitate to go see Dr. Johnson if you are in need of someone who can help with your tinnitus and hearing problems. He is the best in the business.
