Understanding Notch Therapy: A Breakthrough in Tinnitus Relief with Signia Hearing Aids


Living with tinnitus can be challenging, affecting millions of individuals worldwide. At Commerce Hearing Aid Outlet, we recognize the impact tinnitus has on your daily life and are committed to providing innovative solutions for relief. In this blog post, we'll delve into notch therapy, a cutting-edge feature available in Signia hearing aids, designed to alleviate the symptoms of tinnitus.

What is Tinnitus?

Tinnitus is the perception of sound when no external sound is present. This phantom noise can manifest as ringing, buzzing, hissing, or other sounds and varies in intensity from person to person. It can be temporary or chronic, and its origins are diverse, including exposure to loud noises, age-related hearing loss, medical conditions, and more.

Where Does Tinnitus Come From?

Tinnitus can stem from various underlying factors, such as:

  • Exposure to loud noises: Prolonged exposure to loud sounds, whether from work environments, recreational activities, or concerts, can damage the delicate structures of the inner ear, leading to tinnitus.

  • Age-related hearing loss: As we age, the tiny hair cells in the inner ear naturally deteriorate, resulting in hearing loss and often accompanying tinnitus.

  • Medical conditions: Certain medical conditions, such as Meniere's disease, otosclerosis, and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, can contribute to the development of tinnitus.

What is Notch Therapy?

Notch therapy is a specialized feature available in Signia hearing aids designed to alleviate the symptoms of tinnitus. It works by targeting and reducing the perception of the specific frequency range associated with the individual's tinnitus. By creating a "notch" in the hearing aid's amplification curve at the frequency of the perceived tinnitus, notch therapy aims to minimize the brain's focus on the phantom noise.

How Does Notch Therapy Work?

Notch therapy operates on the principle of neural plasticity, the brain's ability to adapt and reorganize in response to sensory input. By delivering customized sound therapy tailored to each individual's tinnitus frequency, notch therapy encourages the brain to habituate to the phantom noise over time, reducing its perceived intensity and intrusiveness.
