Answer by Genegee
I do not remember the price, somehow l think it was around 30 or 40 dollar per month. My reason for answering your question is that l too have tinnitus for many years now (jet engine noise in the service) and l learned to live with it. There is no proven cure for it, if there were l would have it being a veteran. Good luck with your search.
