I was at a loud bar a couple weeks ago and since then have been dealing with ear pain -- burning, ache, with some referring facial pain and dizziness.  No tinnitus, and I am not sure I am really hearing things "louder" -- I just have pain that fluctuates throughout the day.  I have an appointment with the Jastreboff clinic later this week.  

I was wondering - what are the differences between the TRT options that are out there?  I know Jastreboff started this all but I don't know at this point if I should go with him or another one of the centers that offers this kind of thing.  Are the devices different?

There are different ways to do sound therapy.

Some involve wearable sound generators that produce white or pink noise contintously.  I have found these helpful.  They let you do therapy all day long, as you wear them.  They are expensive though.

You can also do sound therapy with a cd player or mp3 player playing pink noise or possibly music.  The volume can be slowly increased over time.

You can mix and match different methods.

I combine the sound generators with slowly increasing pink noise.
