Hi I’m Andrew,
New to the forum. I am looking into Vivatone HA’s specifically the Entre 450.
I have boderline profound loss in my left ear, and moderate severe in my right. Had mri and cat done to confirm it’s not tumors or anything like that.
I also have tinnitus that is maddening loud in both ears (same volume).
This is all going on 20ish years now. I’m 44.
Anyhow, I went to http://www.hearingbalance.com/ 's local audiologist for a hearing test and he demo’d the vivatones for me. Well I was shocked and really thrown off balance by how clear I could hear and that the tinnitus was masked.
The experience has left me shaken.
So I have searched the web end to end and can find no real information about Vivatone, their tinnitus masking or much info on its inventor.
The aids seem well made, needless to say I am ready to sell my first born to come up with the $5G for these devices.
Do any of you users or professionals have any insight into this companies product? Is there any other company that can provide the tinnitus relief I experienced using Vivatones aids for a half hour? Was this relief real? It lasted for about an hour after I left the office.
