Date:9/30/2013

WARRENVILLE, Ill., Sept. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Optimum hearing and understanding in any situation best describes the quality of hearing that most wearers expect from a hearing device. With Phonak Audeo Q, wearers can enjoy conversations in crowded restaurants or during a walk outside on a windy afternoon. Unique Binaural VoiceStream TechnologyTM found in all of the Phonak Quest products makes it possible for wearers to hear and understand in the most challenging listening situations.

Phonak Audeo Q: a simple and discreet solution

Daily activities like conversations in a busy restaurant or on a noisy street can quickly turn into a challenge for people even with mild to moderate hearing loss. Phonak Audeo Q offers a discreet and unobtrusive solution that enables more signal, less noise and better understanding in even more listening situations. The Audeo Q model is extremely small and designed to practically disappear behind the ear.

Tinnitus management

Because four out of five people with tinnitus are also affected by hearing loss, Phonak Audeo Q is now available with a dedicated Phonak tinnitus program that supports a variety of tinnitus management philosophies.

Tinnitus is defined as the perception of sound in the absence of an external sound source. Shorter episodes of ear noise that go away are considered normal and experienced by many people. Tinnitus sounds, however, are described in many various ways including the sound of crickets, wind, dripping water, buzz of fluorescent lights, pulsating tones, hissing, buzzing or ringing in the ear and typically last more than five minutes at a time.

"Approximately 50 million people in the United States have tinnitus and a quarter of those experience depression, loss of concentration, sleep problems and loss of enjoyment of life," explained Ann L. Rhoten, AuD, Owner of Kentucky Audiology and Tinnitus Services. "Historically, people suffering with tinnitus have been told they have to 'learn to live with it.' "While currently there isn't a cure, there are treatments such as the Phonak tinnitus management program that can help.

"The Phonak Audeo Q incorporates a tinnitus management feature in the hearing aid which offers a library of sounds and music specially designed to help manage tinnitus. These tools, combined with experienced counseling can be very effective in treating tinnitus," said Dr. Rhoten.

Certified in Tinnitus Retraining Therapy (TRT), Dr. Rhoten is certified in the treatment and management of tinnitus and sound sensitivity issues and is a member of the American Tinnitus Association and the Tinnitus Practitioner's Association.

Phonak products are available through hearing healthcare professionals.
