Recommendation ID

What is the clinical and cost effectiveness of amplification devices for people who are d/Deaf or who have a severe-to-profound hearing loss?

Any explanatory notes
(if applicable)

Improving access to sound can be beneficial for those with tinnitus and hearing loss. There is no current evidence regarding the effectiveness of amplification, hearing aids or implant devices, for managing tinnitus in those who may only receive limited hearing benefit from the amplification. However it may be that even some hearing benefit from amplification may improve perception of tinnitus.
