    Had it so long now I wouldn't know what to do if it went away.

    I don't remember reading your Jan 7 post but it may have been lurking in my subconscious because I've been questioning a buddy a lot recently. He rides those nasty, loud Harleys (:p) and used to speak extremely loud, received HAs in the past year and now he complains that I talk too loud and says the T is gone when he wears them.

    I have an initial appointment to get HAs this Thursday. Thanks for your input.

    PS: I just stepped outside for a minute and hundreds, if not thousands, of water turkeys are flying South, many immediately over head at 75-100' AGL. I could hear their wings flapping. :)

    I never really notice it unless it's dead quiet, then it becomes really irritating.

    I'm not allowed to post in here because it reminds others of their issue but, if I did, I'd ask if everyone has tinnitus on one level or another. So many comments of 'when it's dead quiet' or 'every few days' or 'once a month'.

    Daily, but I don't think it's constant 24/7.

    I have it most days but I'm able to ignore it mostly if I have some other noise to drown it out with or focus on.

    Constant, 24/7. I wear Resound BTE hearing aids and it hasn’t helped. The in the ear aids made it significantly worse.

    I’ve had an eardrum rupture from gunfire in a confined space. At the time, earpro was an afterthought.

    If you mean the entire device, I've heard that from others (off TGT site) too.

    Constant ... never stops.
    Can ignore it much of the time.
    Some medications, like aspirin, make it worse.

    My hopes were elevated after some of the comments here and my discussions elsewhere!

    After nearly 6mos of jumping through the proverbial hoop to obtain them, I was fitted with and wore home a pair of Resound LiNX Quattro aides last Wednesday. I've worn them the majority of my non-driving hours (I have used Surefire EP3s behind the wheel for more than 1 year) to no avail.

    The controlling app offers several modes and multiple sub-modes, none of which offered any relief. Tinnitus blows!
