Masking devices work by creating an alternative sound to mask the perception of the tinnitus. Once the pitch of the tinnitus is determined either a broadband noise, ocean sounds, or music stimuli are created around the same pitch that the tinnitus is in an effort to cancel it out.
Most modern hearing aids have masking noise modes so you can get the best of both words. Some of the music based tinnitus treatment stimuli are also created using mathematical formulas called Fractal Equations which never repeat so you do not get the tunes stuck in you.
Masking noise it may not cancel all the tinnitus out and some people report you are replacing an internal annoying noise (tinnitus) with an external annoying noise (masking noise).
Again, it also does not address any neurological issues and still we need to rewire the neurological pathways in the emotional areas of the brain through additional counselling and habituation techniques.
