Tinnitus is a condition that affects 50 million Americans, with 20 million people suffering chronically. It is experienced as ringing, whooshing, or buzzing in their ears in the absence of external sound. This device can immerse people in sounds that mask their tinnitus and remain comfortable at night while they fall asleep. The relief is almost instant, in just 3 to 5 seconds sufferers say they can’t hear their tinnitus through the calming sleep sounds that come free with the device.
Finally there is hope for people suffering from tinnitus. Tinnitus Sleep Aid designed the Sleeptune™ 2.0 headphones to be comfortable in all sleeping positions, including for side-sleepers. Unlike other headphones, they have ultra-flat, padded speakers, so individuals can comfortably mask their tinnitus while falling asleep.
“For those living with tinnitus, the ringing can begin to affect every single aspect of their quality of life. That’s where Tinnitus Sleep Aid comes into the picture. With this device individuals can find immediate relief from the ringing, buzzing, or whooshing in their ears,” a representative of the company said in a statement.
The Sleeptune™ 2.0 is the world’s first personalized wearable for tinnitus sufferers. Ultra-thin headphones are comfortable to wear in any sleeping position: front, back, or side. The headphones are built into a world-class sleeping mask. Its 3D design won’t apply pressure to the eyes, lashes or leave lines on the face in the morning.
“Despite millions of people suffering from tinnitus there is still no cure. We believe people deserve better, and these headphones are just one product of many that we intend to use to revolutionize the industry of tinnitus treatment. No other device helps to effectively immerse people in sounds that mask their tinnitus and remain comfortable while they fall asleep,” the representative adds.
The headphones come with over 500 sounds specially engineered to mask tinnitus. Personalized recommendations help customers to find sounds that match the pitch of their tinnitus. This results in the tinnitus being completely “hidden” by the sounds selected.
By helping customers find sounds that match the pitch of their tinnitus, Tinnitus Sleep Aid offers a personalized approach that is as effective as tinnitus-masking hearing aids that cost thousands of dollars (and which aren’t comfortable to sleep in).
“Instead of hearing your tinnitus, all you’ll hear is calming music or nature sounds that have been custom-engineered to mask tinnitus. The speakers in our headphones are just a quarter of an inch thick and padded, so you can comfortably sleep with them in any position – even on your side,” the representative explains.
The device helps people easily find the pitch of their tinnitus using an online pitch-finding tool. It recommends matching sleep sounds to perfectly conceal the ringing.
Tinnitus Sleep Aid said individuals don’t have to use it every night. It provides immediate relief, so they can reach for it only on the nights they need it most.
Customers only need to put it on, press play, and the tinnitus will be masked by calming music or nature sounds, helping them fall asleep.
The device has a 14-hour battery life and rapid two-hour recharge for all-night listening.
In a review, Santina Y. said she used to sleep with a fan on to have some background noise, and that helped. However, when she saw the device, she knew she needed to give it a go.
“I can’t hear my tinnitus at all now when I put them on. I’ve been sleeping so well. I’m just really grateful that I found this,” Santina wrote.
Another customer, Leonie J. said her tinnitus gets really bad whenever she tries to sleep.
“These headphones do a really good job of masking my tinnitus so I mostly just hear the calming waves. That [sleep sound] is my favorite,” Leonie wrote in a separate review.
