    BrOKeN_1 this is my desperate listen. When this doesn't work I just return to crickets and lofi hip-hop and just do my best to cope.

    I sometimes listen to violet noise which sounds a lot like rain to me. I also listen to rain sometimes too. But crickets are my go-to.

    I can select white or pink noise on my white noise generators and ocean waves is a third option. I mostly listen to pink noise, as it's very smooth. My in-ear WNG only has white noise, which is also good. Whatever sound therapy you use, remember that it must always be set slightly below the tinnitus and not masking it because it makes habituating to tinnitus more difficult.

    Thank you both. Missing my crickets terribly. Right now I am using rain at the highest frequency on MyNoise App. The pink sad violet noise can annoy me after a while.

    Since it's impossible to block out, I listen to nature sounds and birdsong and try to focus on those sounds instead of my tinnitus.

    I used crickets, but when those no longer worked, I turned to lower-pitch "babbling brook" sounds. Nothing high pitch to compete, but lower pitch to distract.

    I still use my crickets at night. As much as they don't block out the reactive T completey. I still concentrate on it enough to distract me from my ringing ear and I managed to fall asleep last night and woke up once in the night. Chamomile tea and lavender spary was also used.
