#HearingFactFriday: Tinnitus takes a financial toll

If you have tinnitus, you’re keenly aware of the impact it can have on your physical and mental well-being. Depending on the severity, tinnitus can affect your sleep and concentration, and cause depression and anxiety, among other things.

Tinnitus, sadly, also has financial repercussions for the people who suffer from it. The American Tinnitus Association notes that when adding up lost earnings, productivity and health care costs, individuals can lose “up to $30,000 annually” all thanks to ringing in the ears.

Help is available. Many hearing aids, including our Muse, Halo 2 and SoundLens Synergy invisible hearing aids have tinnitus relief technology built into them. You can try this proven technology for yourself by visiting a local hearing professional who fits it.

You can also learn more about tinnitus, Starkey’s tinnitus relief technology, or download our popular tinnitus relief app, Relax, by visiting the tinnitus section of our website.
