    Hearing Problem - High Pitch Sound Hypersensitivity

    I cannot tolerate high pitched voices (most women & all children). I also cannot tolerate music w/high frequency sounds & my daily commute is a nightmare due to sound leakage from people who listen to music with ear phones. When I wear hearing aids, my hypersensitivity is worsened because the aids increase high frequency volume. I'm searching for a hearing aid that will tone down the high frequency - is there such a thing?

    I have Tinnitus and have about the same problem due to another hearing condition called Hyperacusis, which is simply a much higher sensitivity to noise. Many people with Tinnitus have both.

    Though I personally can't stand hearing aids, it is my understanding that many with these two conditions that I have do wear aids, and I bet an Audiologist with experience with Tinnitus patients could help you out.
