      I know this is personal and the sensation is different from person to person but just wanna know:

      Do you still listen to music with in ears while having tinnitus?
      My tinnitus got a bit louder this Christmas and I'm terribly afraid to make it worse by listening to music on the go. But I miss listening to music so much

      Do you guys have any special in ear that you use? Brand and so on.

      Couldn't you use speakers at a low volume instead?

      Wouldn't even consider it.

      Acoustic trauma (loud concert for 1h)
      I only use headphones that are over-ear. Think Beats by Dr Dre. I have never used my in-ear headphones since T, both because I have my Beats that have better sound and are wireless, but also because I don't want to get too close to the eardrum. My beats usually cancels the noise outside pretty well even though they are not a noise-cancelling model. That way I don't accidentally turn up the volume because there are noises that are taking over my music.

      Same here. When I'll be able to listen to music again, I'll buy high quality speakers (they will also be useful for movies).
