If you have tinnitus as well as hearing loss, hearing aids can be quite helpful. You can also wear masking devices that look like hearing aids. These devices can produce a continuous and low-level white noise, which is more pleasant and can suppress your perception of the noise from your tinnitus. Key words: hearing aid tinnitus; hearing aids tinnitus; tinnitus hearing aids.
Hearing aids only help when it's noise suppression that is causing tinnitus. If tinnitus results from a medical condition, drugs are necessary to help manage the symptom.
I understand from my hearing doctor that there is no cure.

She did not recommend hearing aids as a help.

 Possibly my tinnitus is not that bad compared to others.
