I'll do some more research. I'm not sure about these guys. What turns me off is the = no long term studies to show a reduction of ringing. I suspect my loss of hearing higher frequencies is related to my age - 65. What does your friend say about hearing and aging?
I think the best you can hope for is masking the ringing. I don't think there's ever been any credible proof that you can reduce or eliminate ringing by throwing more sound at it.

Regarding the additional hearing loss issue, go back to the fundamentals. A certain dB of sound at a given frequency over a given time will cause hearing damage. Most hearing aids are set only for MCL (maximum comfort level) or how much volume you can tolerate before it makes you completely mad. You gotta do what you gotta do to get by, but balance your priorities of being able to converse in the coming years versus hifi listening fidelity.
