    That's how I liked them. But none were at or below zero, after all you want more of everything if you can get it

    I've just listened to an amazing radio program on BBC 4 about sensory perception, I highly recommend listening to it if you can access it.
    https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m000zlqc
    After listening I searched for Prof David Eagleman online and eventually found his commercial offerings.
    It so happens that the device is proven to work on tinnitus. It's not cheap and doesn't appear to be available in the UK yet but I thought I'd post as it's such an interesting area of research.

    The programme, which did not impress me, was on R4; I listened thrice.

    I was not impressed by the contributors, and know that Jim Alalili has on BBC4 on a programme on gravity, stated serious errors.

    There has been an increasing tendency for a certain subsect of academia to not only use media as a showcase for themselves, but also for there to be much mutual ingratiating during programmes.

    There is a professor of mathematics who keeps saying 'like', mid sentence, and in a way which is not consistent with correct grammatical usage.

    There are a few examples of very good academics, and one is Dr Sam Willis; very articulate, correct intonations and sensibilities, and humble.

    I think, in common with our society, academia has become dumbed down, but of course it is possible to attempt to discredit my opinions because I do not have a degree.

    Yesterday i had a remote video consultation with an audiologist at the hospital, she reset my hearing aids to work with open domes (they allow rather than block normal hearing and then the hearing aids complinent), she also remotely installed a music programme.

    I need to have the volume set slightly higher than before but way way lower than without hearing aids and i have to say music is sounding way better than it has for a long time, serious upgrade.

    Thats incredible that they can do that remotely! But even better that it has improved things for you.

    I had a car accident about 3 years ago, all the air bags went off, resulting in hearing loss in my right ear, something to do with how I was angled in the seat of the car at impact.
    Tinnitus for a couple of years, and now just a big gap in certain frequencies.
    The last 2 years has been a search for amplification that has the flexibility needed, as some days i need to have the balance and Treble canted more towards the right ear.
    I started off with an Accuphase pre that had separate tone controls for each channel, and a balance control, but I didn't like the over all presentation, the Accuphase sound?
    I tried several combinations of pre and power, and even an integrated, but nothing really worked.
    Then I stumbled across the Pass Labs XP30 pre.
    This has 4 live outputs , 2 x Master , 2 x Slave , and a gain wheel on each of the 2 channel boxes, which operate independently.
    So you can bi amp, using entirely different amps for LF and HF, and change the gain to suit.
    So, I've now got the LFs being driven by a 300W Class D power amp, Master, and the HFs are driven by my Plinius SA100 MK3 , about 150W Class A , slave.
    I can dial in , or out, the HFs with the wheel(s) at the front, and there's a balance control too.
    And I can swap between AB and A bias on the Plinius too , hooligan or Sophisticated !
    Seems to have solved my problem , fingers crossed.

    good to hear neil.. if you still struggle you could try nuraphone cans. they adjust freq to suit your ears. other possibilities are in digital pc type front end where you can alter freq at every point etc. roon can i think, as can jriver.
