Thread: Tinnitus Masking features. Do they work for you?

    It looks like mostly vitamins to me when I check the ingredients? My tinnitus masking is working well with my HA's. And I take vitamins, gingko, and all the other things that are supposed to help as well.

    I have had severe to outrageous tinnitus for 30+ years. For the first year or two it was very distracting, but I have good attentional focus and am not conscious of the tinnitus when I'm paying close attention to something else (even reading).

    When I was about 5 years into the tinnitus, I had some dental work that involved drilling, and was amazed and thrilled to have the experience of no tinnitus -- my hearing was so clear! (except for the dentist's drill, that is)

    I wear Bolero V70s for now (still trial period), and they have no effect on my tinnitus.

    My audi suggested that tinnitus can improve with increased input to the brain: if the tinnitus is caused by lack of neural input (so the brain generates its own), then giving the brain neural input in those frequencies *might* result in the brain having to generate less of its own "input".

    Does anyone have experience with tinnitus improving over time using HAs?

    I hardly notice my tinnitus while wearing my ha's but they have tinnitus masking built in. I can't say if I would notice my tinnitus without the masking. I can say that it comes back full force when I take my ha's out at night so something is working correctly. Without the ha's in it's like having a yard full of crickets living in my head.

    Well, here I am...about a year down the road with my Bernafon Juna 9's. Long story short...they do help the symptoms of my tinnitus considerably. That's why I haven't been back here...I just don't really think about my tinnitus any more! The easiest way for me to tell if they are still working is to come home after a long day and take them out and clean them off, but then forget to put them back in. An hour later, and it is like REALLY loud cicadas in my head. And sticking them in doesn't make it instantly go away either. Dang it. So for me, "masking features" didn't do the trick, but getting a pair of the Juna 9's from Costco darn sure did!

    Some people's tinnitus drifts around to different frequencies so maskers can't really help with that. I've seen it work wonders with others though. Also depends on the brand. Some are better than others. Phonak and Unitron are, by far, the best thought.

    I've had my Widex Unique Fusion 220 for about 1-1/2 weeks and really like the Zen programs for help with tinnitus. Zen is the main reason I chose to wear hearing aids and the Widex brand. The fractal tones are great and I've been using it daily and have experienced a decrease in perceived ringing without the hearing aids when going to sleep. With the fractal tones on with a little noise I don't notice ringing at all. Widex has a document that explains how to use the Zen programs to help habituate to the tinnitus. So far it's working for me.
