I try to avoid loud noises, and wear hearing protection. it seems to have lessened.

I have a sister who says that certain chemicals make her ears ring.

I've fiigured out that If I turn off the fluorescent lights in my office, the noise is not quite as bad when I get home. It's not good working on a computer in the dark though.

I have measured the noise in the open space and the various office compartments along the walls, a lot of peaks from 10khz and up, some coincide with my tinnitus. It (my tinnitus) always seems to change when I move my head, so it is difficult to discern if it is an actual sound or my own ears making it.

Will have to try wearing protective gear in my office for a week, people will probably just blame it on me being my normal self.

Does anyone find that headphones help? I don't often use mine but I was listening last night on them for the first time in a few months and they did appear to help a bit, of course, I kept the the volume good and low, that to my mind, is the point of headphones that people tend to forget

I have three sets of "good enough" headphones, my favorites are the silver akg k141 sextet, tied with the golden k141 monitor, they are somewhat different but sound very good, not for the bass heads, but detailed and "effortless". Think less about the noise afterwards, can almost fool myself into thinking it is possible to hear more than 13500hz. Maybe a couple more years I will hear nothing over 10khz. Really hoping those scientists can sell us a "ear rejuvination kit" soon.

Yes, but that's avoiding the problem, not solving it.

True, unfortunately it's the nature of these things, and particularly with something like tinnitus, it's very difficult to define how to evaluate it
