@lfoster10 and @joyces lfoster I’m not sure that what you’re experiencing is tinnitus because I’m not understanding why sounds would get worse outside your home. Tinnitus does seem to be less noticeable when I’m around other sounds I barely notice it. I might be miss understanding what you’re experiencing.
Joyces I too have single sided deafness and it does get dicey not being able to locate the direction of sounds. I have a hearing aid called a BiCros that picks up sound from my deaf side and sends it to my hearing aid in my good ear. I still can’t tell where sound is coming from but it does increase my ability to hear more sound. My husband can tell the minute I don’t have it in. Without it I can’t even hear some sounds. It really does round out the richness and clarity of sound. I have a Phonak. Here’s some info re BiCros.
