Reviews

Reviewer: Jess, information officer, Action on Hearing Loss
Review: Phonak enables clients to choose sounds from the list of default sounds within the app:
• Soothing sounds such as a campfire, chimes, or sailing
• Background sounds such as the harbour, ocean, and rain
• Interesting sounds such as a blackbird, farmyard, or cicadas
Alternatively, users can also select sounds from their own smartphone music library. Clients can rate the effectiveness of each sound and review the overall ratings with their hearing care professional to optimize their sound plan.

Review: There is a variety of smart phone apps intended to treat tinnitus. Phonak’s Tinnitus Balance App enables the user to select sounds from a mobile device's music library. It also contains a list of default sounds divided into three categories: soothing, background, and interesting.

Reviewer: Carol Altman of Western New York Tinnitus Support Group, at the University of Buffalo, USA
Review: The user can rate how well each sound provides relief or distraction from the noises generated by tinnitus and share this information with the audiologist. The App also contains a timer that can be used when the individual is about to fall asleep. There is no cost to download this app and it can be used with and/or without Phonak hearing devices. It is available in the Apple App Store and on Google Play at no cost.
