      Widex hearing aids offer this device. I THINK it's called Zen To Go and it's like a hearing aid except it isn't one, it's a sound generator.

      Cool, I shared this cause it's a case where the patient actually CURED their Tinnitus. :)

      I think he considered it cured because with the device in place he doesn't hear the tinnitus, it's like "it's gone" but it's not cured. I could be misinterpreting the article but I don't think it's an actual cure.... :(

      There are several people here on TT that use those sound generator devices, you can find other posts about them.

      The post states that the patient hasn't heard their T sound in a week...that sounds like they are cured.

      Perhaps he sleeps with the device on.

      I thought TRT took a long time...

      It's like eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee high pitched. But during the day I don't here it if I do not pay attention to it. Outside I do not hear it. Only at night when it is realy silent. In a quit room it's way to loud. For me it's hard to understand what sever tinnitus is because in a quit room it's so loud it fills my head. But a little bit of sound makes it dissapear. I wear the devices only when I'm at work and have a meeting in a quit room otherwise I'm to bothered by it.
      Lately I trained myself more not to hear it by focussing on something else (long story short).
      Last year juli 2013 I was in realy bad shape. If I go to sleep now and lie down on an ear and I hear it loud I do not care that much anymore. And because of that....in minutes it seems to fade away. I know it's still there but I do not hear it anymore. I always keep birdsounds on or have a ventilator on otherwise it's to quite and the tinnitus to loud. So to have a good night rest I always mask it a little but not completly otherwise habitation will not occur.
      What I get more irritated about is sometimes the fullness feeling in my ear when I go into a quit room.

      My T is only present when there are other sounds present, it has become quite reactive but overall improved, I think I may lose the T in time so I've started plugging my left ear.

      In the past month since it started I have had some "silent" gaps.

      My T is probably related to stress cause I can still hear high frequencies with that ear and the T itself does fluctuate.

      The case I posted above sounds like my case, a very minor/mild case, it seems that the patient had to simply mask their T for a while until the brain calmed down and reset itself pre-T.

      Tomorrow I see the audiologist for a full evaluation.

      Yup, it's called ZEN. Here is a link to some sample sounds.
