      ?, big spike in 11/2013
      Hi everyone,

      I have tinnitus with no hearing loss. I'm looking into getting a masker and have the following options:

      General Hearing maskers for $1600-2k/pair, or
      Phonek entry-level aids for $1650/pair (after insurance)

      I don't know much about either company or their devices so I'm wondering if anyone has any experience and can recommend one against the other? Alternately, if there is a lower-cost BTE masker to consider, I'd love to know about that, too. I'm located in the US (in case that makes any appreciable difference).
