Default Re: Trouble With Tinnitus

I have light to moderate tinnitus. It is my understanding via many Y/T videos that it is the brain trying to make up for certain frequencies that are missing from your full-spectrum hearing. And there are ways to mask the effects of tinnitus with sound generators which counter the brain activity. This will not help the day-to-day tinnitus problem. Mine is a very high pitched tone that varies in intensity but is always present.

You opened up a whole new world that I had no idea about Grantro!

I went and checked out the headphones you mentioned, the CAD Audio DH100s, and that opened me up to about 1000 other cool devices with ambient noise reduction technology. Goodness, there is a lot of pretty cool stuff out there to help me with my tinnitus problem.

I forgot that my wife has a JBL noise reduction headset, and I tried it when I was drumming. On full ambient silence mode, amazingly, I could barely hear my drums, which was a little off putting, but when I turned it to minimum, I could hear the drums reasonable well. And most importantly, the music in the headphones wasn't overly loud. But they are strictly wireless Bluetooth, and I don't really want that.

So after all the research, I just ordered the CAD 100s you recommended in the first place. I trust your drummers perspective. Thank you!

jda I have been told the same thing about the "fines". Caffeine, nicotine, alcohol, and chocolate are big culprits. I can say that caffeine in my case, does make the ringing worse. Tough to stay away from though...

You what helps; (crazy)...Tie a handkerchief around your head...tight.. I'm not kidding/
(first put a knot in handkerchief..)

Put a tossle cap on; slide the handkerchief over head; fold the cap edges up...

Something...about pressure on the skull..relieves pressure..in ears? ..it's weird
(or diverts pressure..to elsewhere.. ) appears to be helpful.
Just careful don't leave it on too long or too tight

Your not setting me up here, right?

Hey, I'll give anything a shot at this point!
