      I myself use Oregon Scientific WS903, which has aromatherapy + sound therapy built in one device.

      The waterfall sound is my favorite, masks T nicely.

      The only downside is that the price is high, over 100 dollars:

      I also sometimes use a sound pillow (little speaker), cheap and effective playing your favorite tunes (be it nature or else).

      Yes I do, often times Rainymood ( is playing on my computer. At night I have a pillow speaker ready to go.

      Most nights I can sleep fine, others... not so. :(

      Hi, like the rainymood link. I use aire freshner 2.0 ( a free software on the web) found the cicadas setting to be the best, must contain frequencies which mask my pitch. Theres lots more on there that may be useful for others. This played through some cheap headphones i dismantled and placed in a pillow helps. P.S. like the new site smile.png

      I prefer near silence, just me and the tinnitus, maybe a radio programme of some interest in the background as i drift off, and i never retire unless i'm ready to sleep. I do use a white noise generator during the daytime, occasionally, but at night i don't like to mask this thing, i just sleep straight through it, no matter how loud it gets, and it does get really loud. Never use headphones, even quietly, that seems to encourage it to louden. I don't live in fear of this thing, its just a nuisance, i don't hate it, or even particularly dislike it, i sort of 'nothing' it, its just there, and so am i.

      Lots of android apps too with masking sounds. I use one called Soundsleep. Just place the phone under my pillow or on the table beside my bed.
      I mostly am able to fall asleep without any sound, luckily, but when I wake up during the night to go to the toilet, I need sounds outside my t to fall asleep again. My wife's soft snoring is a blessing then, or blackbirds singing in the dead of night.
