Calm the Symptoms of Tinnitus
The good news is that a variety of treatments and innovative devices such as IQbuds² MAX may help largely mitigate many of the symptoms of Tinnitus.
Common Symptoms of Tinnitus
Phantom noises can range from a very low sound to a high-pitched screeching sound. It can affect one or both ears. In severe cases, the internal noise produced by tinnitus can make it impossible for the person to concentrate or hear other legitimate external sounds. Some people live with tinnitus continually while others experience it only occasionally.
Common Causes of Tinnitus
- Age-related hearing loss: It’s much more common for people over age 60 to experience this problem than younger people. When hearing loss causes tinnitus, doctors refer to it as presbycusis.
- Changes to ear bones: Abnormal ear bone growth can lead to a condition called otosclerosis that causes hearing loss and/or tinnitus.
- Earwax build-up: Although some earwax is necessary to protect the eardrums from dirt and bacteria, too much can irritate the eardrum, cause hearing loss, or cause tinnitus.
- Loud noise exposure: Firearms, chainsaws, and factory equipment are just some examples of extremely loud noises that can cause noise-related hearing loss. It can also lead to short-term or permanent tinnitus.
Tinnitus also has the following less-common causes:
- Acoustic neuroma (non-malignant tumor)
- Eustachian tube dysfunction
- Head or neck injuries
- Inner ear muscle spasms
- Meniere’s disease
- TMJ disorders
Objective vs. Subjective Tinnitus
With subjective tinnitus, no one else can hear the sounds except for the person who has the condition. It is far more common than the objective type. Problems with the inner, middle, or outer ear lead to the symptoms associated with subjective tinnitus. Hearing loss caused by issues with the auditory nerves or pathways can also cause this problem.

Sound Therapy & More for Tinnitus Relief
More on Sound Therapy
- Masking can help cover up some of the sound in your ears.
- Distraction can take your attention off the sound.
- Habituation is the idea that hearing the noise consistently can lead your brain to treat tinnitus as a less important sound that should be ignored.
- Neuromodulation is based on the theory that tinnitus may be caused by too much activity in certain parts of your brain. So background noise could help change the patterns that cause the activity
Hearing Protection and Clean Ears
Removing earwax regularly is also important. However, using Q-tips can potentially push earwax even further down the ear canal. It’s better to use drops made specially to break up earwax and naturally let it flow out of the ear.
Yoga, Meditation and Support
Yoga, meditation, and distracting oneself with pleasant music can also help to reduce the unpleasant effects of tinnitus. While this condition can make people feel alone, the fact that it affects nearly one in five people means that those with tinnitus can find plenty of support if desired.
Online forums such as Tinnitus Talk enable individuals to connect with other Tinnitus sufferers from around the world to share ideas and offer support.
