If you are in a completely silent environment, the noise from tinnitus in your ears can be more obvious and bothersome. To pay less attention to the ringing, you need some white noise. This may help suppress the sound. Your doctor may also recommend using an electronic device to alleviate the influence of the tinnitus, including:
  • white noise machines
  • hearing aids
  • masking devices
Or you can also turn on a fan, soft music or low-volume radio to help mask the ringing. Key word: silence complete tinnitus
