      Loud music/gigs probably
      I think that would become more irritating than tinnitus over time.

      I bought a small fontain and put it in my bedroom, thinking that would help me sleep, but the noise of the pump at night bothers me a lot.

      Nope, running water tends to spike my tinnitus. We have a pond with a fountain behind our home, and that doesn't bother me too much but that might be because there are so many other sounds (birds, frogs, crickets) outside.

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      head trama caused TMJ/neck problems
      In the 90s it was all the rage to have fish tanks. We had 3 in the living room and 4 in my bedroom with my sister. I think that's how my mom coped with her T when it first came on strong. She won't admit it, but I think that's what helped her out. When she got H it made it worse and that's why I had to get rid of my turtle last fall. (Before I had T.)

      I remember being able to sleep through anything when I was younger. When we got rid of the tanks I fully embraced silence and couldn't stand anything noisy in my room.

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Unknown - possibly earphones.
      not a fountain but i do own a diffusér and it helped me when my head was a tea kettle at night. i think ponds and running water are excellent for T because when i had it i remember wishing we had a pond outside the bedroom window.
