Tinnitus can dramatically affect your work life, social life, and even your ability to rest and relax. Thankfully, at our five locations we offer innovative and FDA-approved tinnitus treatment. These are options we have researched and believe in, and they have consistently produced life-changing results for thousands of our patients. We’re confident they will help you too.
Sound Relief Hearing Center helps more people find relief from tinnitus than any other audiology practice in Colorado. How can we offer hope when so many people – including many doctors – claim there is no effective treatment for tinnitus? We have the knowledge, experience, and compassion needed to successfully reduce the impact of tinnitus on your life.
Dr. Julie Prutsman offers a higher standard of expertise. She’s been deeply involved with tinnitus for more than 15 years, long before effective treatments had been developed beyond hearing aids and maskers. She also studied under one of the industry’s most respected and leading medical experts, Dr. Pawel Jastreboff.
Dr. Jastreboff, PhD, ScD, developed the renowned Tinnitus Retraining Therapy (TRT). Julie had the privilege of studying under him in 2002 and today is a proud member of the TRT Association. With this neurophysiological background, Julie is constantly seeking and analyzing the latest tinnitus technologies, to better help you find the long-term solution that’s right for you.
Almost every ENT, audiology practice, and hearing aid dispenser who claims to offer tinnitus treatment only offers one solution: hearing aids. While amplification may help some, only 50% of people living with tinnitus experience the kind of hearing loss that affects their understanding of speech, which means hearing aids are ineffective. At Sound Relief, we offer only evidence-based options like sound therapy and have seen countless patients experience life-changing results.
Hearing Care Built On Human Care
Technology alone can’t ensure a successful outcome. Thousands of hearing healthcare providers across the country and around the world have access to the same products and advancements that we do. However, in the wrong hands, the best technology is worthless.
We effectively use technology based on extensive training, deep commitment to patient counseling and educating, and decades of experience. We know how to use the right products and services to maximize each patient’s benefits. As the better choice for better choices, we deliver exceptional care, without exception.

Widex Tinnitus Treatment
This tinnitus retraining therapy program is personalized for every patient. Each patient chooses from a variety of musical tones known as Zen styles.

ReSound Linx2™ iPhone Tinnitus Relief App
Individuals benefit from this app as part of a tinnitus management program. It offers a combination of sound therapy and relaxing exercises that distract attention from your tinnitus.
Many people with tinnitus have some degree of hearing loss. Hearing aids provide a dual benefit. First by enhancing hearing and then by masking your tinnitus, so you discern soft sounds in the environment you might currently be missing. Often people receive partial or complete relief with the use of hearing aids.
People living with tinnitus may experience anxiety, depression, and other psychiatric problems. As a result, along with our tinnitus retraining therapy options, you may be referred to a psychiatrist or counselor as needed.
Some sufferers develop anxiety, depression, or other strong emotional responses to their tinnitus. Certain medicines can provide relief from these conditions and tinnitus. Nutritional supplements can also offer relief for some patients.
Stress can worsen the effects of tinnitus. If you experience frustration or anxiety from the noise in your ears, learning how to relax is very helpful. By relaxing, you’re given the chance to rest and better deal with the sound.
What Can I Do to Help Myself?
We encourage you to avoid anything that can make your tinnitus worse. For instance, you may want to avoid smoking, drinking alcohol, or listening to loud noises. Another precaution is protection. If you’re a construction worker, airport worker, hunter, or regularly exposed to loud noise, you should wear custom earplugs or special earmuffs. Ear protection goes a long way towards preventing your tinnitus from getting worse.
If you struggle to hear over your tinnitus and are ready to start treatment, schedule a hearing evaluation with Sound Relief today. Beyond tinnitus treatment, we can help with any hearing loss you may be experiencing. This can reduce the stress and strain of trying to understand speech, which will further reduce your tinnitus.
