In this weeks Sunday Supplement, we look at Tinnitus.
Tinnitus is the sensation of hearing ringing, buzzing, hissing, chirping, whistling, or other sounds. The noise can be intermittent or continuous, and can vary in loudness. It is often worse when background noise is low, so you may be most aware of it at night when you're trying to fall asleep in a quiet room.
At Mercury we make filtered earplugs for tinnitus that will reduce the overall level of sound whilst maintaining an even balance across the sound spectrum (think of it like turning down the volume on the TV). This means that you can still hear everything clearly, although the overall sound level is reduced. This is particularly helpful during the day when you're going about your usual business or on an evening when you've popped to your local for a few drinks; you are often exposed to sounds over 85 decibels, which can make your tinnitus more prevalent. Our plugs help to prevent this.
Because there are different levels of tinnitus, we would suggest you speak with us about how your tinnitus is affecting you and we will advise accordingly.
