Hi Dr. Nagler: I have a question. Recently, I've been using my Widex Zens hearing aid feature for about 4 hours a day. My hearing is actually okay, even though my left ear cant hear some high frequencies. What I've noticed is when I put on the hearing aid feature, the outside sounds are amplified, and when I take off the hearing aids. Everything sounds much softer, including the ringing. I'm not sure if this is good for reducing my T or not. It seems to be working, but I don't know if it's because I'm using the hearing aids, or if its because I'm habituating and my ringing is fading because I'm not noticing it as much. Anyway, let me know if using hearing aids is actually helpful in habituation. Thank you, Mark K.
