      I guess it might be placebo but if it helps him sleep at night, why not.

      He probably meant wearable maskers.

      He means custom earplugs that are made from a mold of your ear (ear canal) then you can choose the db reduction.

      He might not have it very bad ..or he could have it bad and choose not to talk about that to the world.
      I am not sure how I would react if asked in an interview , I might downplay it ..?

      There is no sound in those, only a db reduction of all sounds

      Money and success is the best help you can get. I strongly believe celebrities take it in their stride because their lives are full of huge distractions. They are on world tours and making platinum selling albums plus multiple other projects. When you keep your mind busy you tend to zone tinnitus out.

      The problem some of us face is depression and anxiety resulting from our T. Without having the distractions of success it's a lot easier to withdraw into yourself. I guarantee T wouldn't be half as bad if you could wake up and say "I'm having a bad day today, you know what, I think I'll go and buy that Aston Martin with the custom leather seats I've always wanted. Then after I'll take a break in the Maldives for a bit".

      People say money doesn't buy you happiness, strictly speaking it doesn't but it damn sure buys you a sense of security. As long as you have genuinely loving people around you, you've pretty much hit the jackpot as far as life goes.

      T as we all know is made worse by stress and various other factors. For some this can be worrying about work, feeling you can no longer go out for fear of being in loud situation etc. For every day people like us it's a lot harder to get back into your routine of life; you can easily find yourself dwelling in bed stressing about everything.

      Yes. It really looks like he doesn't want to talk about it. Also,looks like he is drunk in that interview. Could be wrong though

      Well that was useless, if these people with influence don't shout out about the torment for many, who will anybody take notice of?
      Certainly not us minions.
      The only thing his money would buy me would be a car with the quietest road noise rating, now that would be nice.

      He was just on Chelsea Handler the other day playing. He had no ear protection and they did close ups of his face and you could see in his ear and I didn't see any ear plugs.

      That's minor T, if I listen to music at moderately loud volume all is lost and tons of distortion, pain, crackling poping, zaps, weird T sounds jumping in and out of what you aren't sure if are real sounds (the music) or your T. There is absolutely no chance a person (I don't care who they are and what kind of will they have) could perform with shit ears even if they wanted to. He would be retired if it were bad, he's only human. Steam and ginkgo yeah right, nice job on downplaying this potentially horrendous condition.

      Omg just imagine...if his T was louder and so he couldn't go on stage anymore and it meant the bitter end for Coldplay..

      One can only dream, I suppose.

      Ryan Adams still plays. He's had Meniere's for a while. You can bet that his T is off the charts.

      I guess he got some T from sinus issues or something, a colleague of mine also went into steam a lot and it was good on his T, he did not have noise induced T though..

      Might explain his nasal vocals ;-)

      Not gonna lie, I enjoy a bit of cold play. Dunno why people dislike them so much. It's almost a cliché.

      They are just amazing. But I know a lot of people choose Justin Bieber over Coldplay. That is pure agony!
