AfterShokz

More and more, people are isolating themselves from one another. Not just in their homes, but out on the streets, on public transport and in cafes and bars. Noise-cancelling headphones block out unwanted noise, but also the day-to-day interactions we’d otherwise enjoy.

AfterShokz believes in a different vision of the future. A vision that brings people together, rather than keeping them apart. They’ve been working tirelessly to realize this vision – and it’s why they created their Open Ear Bone Conduction Headphones.

Although originally designed for sport, AfterShokz have also been found to help people manage their tinnitus. Ensuring the ears remain completely open, they provide a distraction that doesn't interrupt your daily routine. Listening to music, podcasts or news can become a pleasure, and help in busy environments where tinnitus can be at its worst.

The Invisible Hearing Clinic

Established in 2000, The Invisible Hearing Clinic aim to provide a friendly patient-centered approach to auditory care from their clinics in Cumbernauld and Glasgow City Centre. 

They base their treatments on a Nuerophysiological model of tinnitus care, and attend both national and international research seminars to ensure their awareness of new developments that might influence their treatment practices and protocols. In the absence of a cure, they believe that early intervention and ongoing support offer great relief to those affected by bothersome tinnitus and/or hyperacusis. Their aim is to achieve levels of habituation and in turn reduction in the perception of noise for their patients. 

Their annual Tinnitus Hearing and Information Show takes place on Saturday 8 February 2020 in Glasgow - with guest speaker, BTA Chief Executive, David Stockdale - and will raise awareness of advances in tinnitus and developments in hearing technology.
