When to replace hearing aids
@bobbyboomer I agree someone else suggested Taurine I don't know how expensive this is but may try it. Anything to quiet the sound.

I may have suggested it….have been taking daily for almost a month now and the last few days or so I noticed I didn’t have any or when it came back it was a different lower sound and didn’t last. I am only taking 500 mg but you can take larger doses. It’s funny that I just realized a couple nights ago (when aids are out and I’m in bed) that something was missing.
Lord only knows if that’s the reason but I will keep on with it. This particular sound was a very annoying beep and chirping sound. I do have a slight head noise but that just disappears during the day and is not a real problem.
It’s very affordable….I don’t know if a particular brand is better.
$10 for 180 capsules here https://www.vitacost.com/vitacost-l-taurine
If I did the math right it's less than 16 cents per day.
I haven't tried this brand at Amazon but it's even cheaper:
If I did the math right it's less than 12 cents per day.
Remember, they work gradually. A year later and it went from hissing at best to wailing at worse and it's now quiet at best and hissing at worst.
I take two on an empty stomach with a glass of water when I wake up, and another sometime in the afternoon. I don't know if that's the best way or not, it's just the easiest for me.
I probably found out about Taurine in this article https://www.lifeextension.com/magazine/2013/6/The-Forgotten-Longevity-Benefits-of-Taurine/Page-01
And from the NIH https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2997922/ which is where I always end up because they are papers published in peer reviewed medical journals. Not that it makes them iron-clad, but it's the best source available IMHO.
