I’m going to have to disagree with the statement that tinnitus never goes away.
I have Tinnitus, probably mild, and with my last HA’s it didn’t make any difference.
However, I just got fitted with Phonak Audeo IX’s and didn’t expect any difference on that front, just better hearing.
A couple of days into using them I was sitting in a quiet situation and suddenly realised what I WASN’T hearing anymore…
I can still “pull it back” to some degree if I think about it hard enough (which I think is kind of weird). But now, I’ll put my HA’s on as fast as I can in the mornings just to get rid of it. In the past I wouldn’t bother if I was just going to be alone and not talking to anyone.
I’m really pleased with the HA’s, but this was a “bonus” I had not expected
