Hi all: I'm a veteran from years ago. Some of you will know me from suffering so badly from Hyperacusis and if not for Dan and this venue and some great TRT retraining and the Big Guy upstairs, I wouldn't be posting this.

What am I posting? Yep, the kid here is taking flying lessons. Yep, never would have been able to do that, these little planes are loud. I hear I'm to get a good noise cancellation headset, anyone has any suggestions?

Mostly I want everyone to know as a Holiday gift to you all that Life CAN change and it's not always as bad as what you are experiencing now. Never ever give up!

Jane

I have been delighted with my Sony WH 1000X M3 noise cancelling headphones.

I live in England and purchased my headphones from John Lewis department store but they are widely available from many other stores in the UK or via the internet. They were rather expensive at £272 but in my opinion are well worth the price.
It is most encouraging to hear that you have had some success in overcoming your problems.
Has TRT improved both your tinnitus AND your hyperacusis?
Regards,
Fred

oh lucky you, living in England, we'd love to live there though we love living here too. I didn't have tinnitus but just hyperacusis, after taking an antibiotic, I had pulsatile tinnitus for several months but that finally went away but I'm sure if I had it, I'd find some way of dealing with how to eradicate it, that's for sure. If it's broken, I like to fix! It's been good not to live the way I did but I did for ten years or so or at least it felt like it and I tried many things. I wish in my case I would have just gone for it and done the TRT with someone. I did try it with someone who was very kind and just beginning but he realized this wasn't what he wanted to get into and didn't have the experience he said to do it so I appreciated that. So it took me a long time to settle on the right place. I started it in one place on the east coast and then finished off on our coast here. Thanks for the great idea and the kind words!

would by chance anyone know of a heavy duty  noise cancelling headphones that I could use when using a riding lawn mower ? I've had Hyperacusis for 30 years now and have readjusted back to most noise except when mowing the grass and would love to return to those activities.

Hi its a bit quiet on here at the moment it sometimes happens. With me now just one thing I have to watch - rooms full of chattering people, especially if its with people been out night clubbing the night before - 'what did you say' -  so when i'm invited to shall we say breakfast out I just use old fashioned cotton wool, and have a good listen brain keep you in tune with normal life.  

Hope this helps Steve.

Hi, Happytobehere,

If you’re wanting noise protection to mow on a riding lawnmower, I think you would want ear protection, not noise-cancelling. The noise-canceling is not “heavy duty”.

For ear protection when mowing, use Peltor X 4A or similar. Look on line and get a heavy duty set.

Have fun!

I am thinking if it's for everyday, how about looking into the noise cancelling sets that private pilots use. I am taking flying lessons now and check out Sporty's and other catalogs and companies. These little planes are very noisy and the earphones really help.
