      Tinnitus with out hearing loss has a chance of going and with hearing loss it will most likely stay and for some people they will need hearing aids to cope and help take the edge off their tinnitus.
      As to who would habituate better ?
      I think it would be the same for both and depending on your threshold and how much you can tolerate and the impact it has on your life and if live on your own or had to give up work and the support you get.....lots of love glynis

      If you have loud T and a lot of hearing loss then yeah it's pretty obvious, getting used to this is a nightmare, makes it hard if not impossible to mask or hear any kind of silence.
