These approaches help many people.
These are the most fragile nerves in the body.
Sometimes very small things help.
Still no cure yet, but worth doing what you can for an improvement.

I think one approach may involve active noise cancellation.

Pink noise tuned to match one's own frequency issues seems like it might help some people too.
Perhaps pink noise with a notch cut out to match the frequency of the tinnitus noise?

Don't skip the basic check with an endocrinologist.

I know about their denying help to those with tinnitus.

They should do the endocrine tests for you.
I hope they do a full panel.

Lipo-flavonoid is considered a supplement, so I doubt anyone will cover it.
Cheapest if you buy in bulk, and you have to stay on it for a long time to see if it works.
Many doctors report success with it, but it varies with each person.

The more advanced noise cancellation stuff is probably still experimental, so just look around for someone doing things like that.
VA might cover basic pink noise masking if a doctor signs off on it.
I could help you set up a basic generator.
Tailoring one to your hearing really needs testing, but an educated guess could be made.
It would require more equipment to eq the pink noise, but not impossible.

I hope I don't need to tell you to protect your ears from further damage, which usually increases the noise for a time.
You should use good earmuffs for any extended noise, vacuum, power tools, lawn mower, etc.

FOR THOSE WITHOUT HEARING ISSUES yet
As for the rest of you, you should all have a good set of muffs available at all times, and use them when you should.
And this means hearing protection in excessively loud shows too.
Use the clear Cirrus plugs if you want to hide them.

Gradual hearing loss is cumulative.
Almost all exposure takes a toll.

Muffs are more convenient, and far superior at lower frequencies.
I use the Howard Leight Black Leightning set.
There are comparable sets from other brands.
The better ones are far more comfortable, and radically quieter too.
$20 to $40 for a decent set.
Better ones with noise cancellation can range up to over a thousand.
Some enclosed headphones are effective, if you want the option of music.
Some have radios built in.
Look for a reduction in noise of 30 db or so, across a wide range of frequencies.

Electronic muffs built for shooting, are not intended for noise cancellation for any other use.
They may work fine turned off though.
Otherwise gun and hunting shops are a good place to find hearing protection.
Also workplace safety equipment stores.
The Leight is sold under another model in safety places, LM 22 maybe.

And for shooting, use inserts and earmuffs.

But only bother if you enjoy listening to music, or silence, or other people.
If you don't protect your hearing, you have a good chance of finding out what tinnitus is like.

Steve Handsome-Funkstep (original mix) Could easily be labeled "techno" but it's good techno IMO and at least it's not TRANCE. I like the mellow
WOOB... WOO WOO... WOOB WOOB WOOB of the bass.

gyre/UJH - I pick up my first hearing aids a week from Monday. If all goes well I hope to hear little things that I've never heard before - the ding when the coffee maker is done brewing, the ding when the toaster oven is done and maybe actually understand what the people are saying in a movie instead of having to ask my wife "What did they say?".

The other day I came off the range and still had my shooting ears on when I started the Jeep. I heard all kinds of dings and bells that I didn't even know the Jeep had. My shooting ears are electronic. One week from Monday a whole new world opens for me. I hope it doesn't drive me crazier than I already am :lol:

I don't think it ever really sounds much like Caravan, but sometimes it's recognizable.

He doesn't put down the bass until ~5:00 and then dicks around for a minute and twenty seconds before beginning with Caravan.
This is not the one I was listening to, some weird promotional thing, but I think it's the only one on youtube.
And it's had less than 100 views.
