Tinnitus is commonly known as the perception of a ringing or buzzing sound in the ears. This buzzing or ringing sound is actually a phantom noise created internally by our brain, in response to problems with our hearing system or other environmental factors (i.e. medications). These internally-created sounds often worsen when the person is in a quiet environment or if they suffer from hearing loss. Many people experience tinnitus on an everyday basis, often resulting in loss of concentration or the inability to hear external sounds. Fortunately, the hearing aid manufacturer, Widex, has developed a device to assist normal hearing individuals with tinnitus management. The tinnitus therapy device is called the Widex Zen2Go. This feature plays music or chime-like tones when no external sound is present, which is designed to make tinnitus less noticeable and more tolerable in quiet environments. Studies have found that this technology significantly reduces the unpleasant symptoms of tinnitus. If you suffer from tinnitus, then Zen2Go might be the right product for you.

For those individuals with hearing loss and tinnitus, this Zen technology has also been incorporated in all of the new Widex hearing aids. This allows you to receive the amplification you need in addition to the tinnitus reducing benefits of Zen technology.
