Tinnitus (a persistant ringing in the ears) affects about 10-15% of the population in a mild way, with about 1% of the population severely affected. In the worst cases, it can be very debilitating causing many psychological side-effects. Until recently, very little has be found to reduce, much less cure, this condition.

Neuromod Devices, and Irish company, have developed a device they call Mutebutton that in clinical trials has produced a 42% reduction in the patients perceived loudness of tinnitus.

I didn't have, and continue not to have any problems with the Momentum Wireless M2 I reviewed recently, but evidently others are.

The headphone news feeds were chock full of reports on the World Health Organization that has just recommended we limit use of personal audio devices to one hour per day. ONE HOUR PER DAY! Man, that's a hard number to choke down. How do you get your teenager to do that?

I've got some thoughts.

CES is a big show, there's no way to know everything that's happening there while you're there. I thought a good surf of the last two weeks of headphone news would show some additional fruit for review sample requests.

And, of course there's some newsy odds 'n ends.

More Apple talk...that 3.5mm jack may be going away sooner than I predicted.

I have a suspicion that the major labels are up to good things.

And a couple of fun Kickstarter campaigns.
