Widex, a manufacturer of premium hearing aids, has introduced a device to help people with tinnitus who do not have an accompanying hearing loss. The Zen2Go™ device provides relief from tinnitus by playing random harmonic tones. It fits behind the ear and looks similar to a hearing instrument. While it is not necessary for an audiologist to program the device in order for it to work, it is highly recommended that an individual consult with a hearing professional before purchasing it. Seeking counsel from an audiologist who is professionally trained to manage tinnitus will greatly enhance the effectiveness of the Zen2Go™ device.
