I have tinnitus as a result of early shooting without ear protection and a noisy work environment. Avoid it if you can.

Re the audiologists graph:
1. Higher frequencies are most affected.
2. Women have higher pitched voices than men.
Ergo, you will have a harder time hearing your wife than your buds. She will not be understanding about this.

Jerry Pournelle wrote yesterday about his new high tech hearing aids and how they were already changing his life. But while they can make up for hearing loss, they do nothing for tinnitus. There are highly advertised dietary supplements for tinnitus, but I kind of doubt they do much. I would be glad to hear different.
