      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Although I get your aversion and warning, this statement is too broad.

      There are people (me included) that only need a VERY low volume input to completely cancel out their tinnitus (in my case a buzzing).

      That does not mean my tinnitus is low volume by any means. At night it sounds like there is a B52 bomber hovering over our house, but still, even at that level it only needs a very low volume anti-noise to cancel it out. I think it has to do with the vibration canceling out some other vibrating in my head that causes the tinnitus.

      Bone conducting headphones are in that case a good solution to get some relief + you are still part of the normal world because with actual in ear headphones, you are locked off from daily sounds and I guess bone conducting headphones cause less damage (at low volume of course).
