The ringing has been driving me crazy. I am considering hearing aids which is supposed to help. Though the sound always seems to intensify this time of year.
One gets used to it over decades. :/

My hearing aids basically pipe the sound from the dead ear over to the good ear (what they call Contralateral Routing Of Sound, or one-sided CROS), so they do nothing for the ringing in the dead (right) ear. The right hearing aid is just a mic and a transmitter. Useful in meetings, not so much in large noisy rooms.

You'd want to go with what they call the bi-CROS setup where both sides can put stuff into the ears and then you can get into tinnitus-management white noise and whatnot.

OH, and I got a link to a PDF on tinnitus management from my audiologist at my last checkup. Did y'all know that tinnitus is the #1 (?) complaint at the VA?
