The use of Walkman Mini-stereo system as a tinnitus masker.

Author information

  • 1Whiston Hospital, Prescot, Merseyside.


A study was done on 41 patients to compare the use of the Walkman Mini-stereo system with different types of phones to mask tinnitus, by using music, or relaxation or different bands of noise similar to those generated by a tinnitus masker or pure tone, and it was found that the Walkman Mini-stereo system with any types of phone, was as effective, and more economic, both to patients and to the N.H.S., than traditional tinnitus maskers. It should be recommended for the management of tinnitus in preference to the traditional tinnitus maskers.
