Description

Tinnitus is a condition that affects 10-15% of the adult population (Seidman et al., 2010). The link between tinnitus and hearing loss is strong, with four in five tinnitus clients also experiencing hearing loss (Axelsson A., Ringdahl A., 1989). The goal of tinnitus management is to make the condition less intrusive and less distressing. In some cases education and counseling is combined with amplification or additional sound enrichment. The use of broadband sound is common in tinnitus management either in the context of masking or sound therapy such as Tinnitus Retraining Therapy (Jastreboff et al., 2004).
