Individual with tinnitus. Intervention: inhibitor device demonstration.
The Inhibitor™ Tinnitus Masking Device is a new tinnitus treatment device recently available in the United States for use of temporary relief of tinnitus. The device emits an ultra high frequency sound for 60 seconds via bone conduction when applied to the mastoid. Patients reporting tinnitus will be provided the opportunity to demonstrate the device to observe any changes in their tinnitus. The device may be demonstrated up to 5 times. The investigators will be recording the the degree and duration of change in tinnitus perception following treatment with the Inhibitor™ Tinnitus Masking Device.
Device: The Inhibitor™ Tinnitus Masking Device
The Inhibitor™ Tinnitus Masking Device
No Intervention: No tinnitus
Individuals without tinnitus will also be masked with the device.
- Determine the Percentage of Participants for Which the Inhibitor™ Tinnitus Masking Device Effected Tinnitus Perception [ Time Frame: Single visit (day 1), assessed the day of visit ]Determine percentage of particpants with a change in tinnitus perception to evaluate the effectiveness of the Inhibitor™ Tinnitus Masking Device.
- Percentage of Participants Which Showed Presence of SCN9 Gene Expression. [ Time Frame: Single visit (day 1), evaluated at the time of the genetic collection. ]Percentage of participants with and without tinnitus provided a genetic sample via saliva to determine presence of SCN9 gene expression.
