In this randomized clinical trial of 151 participants with subjective debilitating tinnitus and audiometric normal to mild hearing loss, Scherer et al compare the efficacy of tinnitus retraining therapy and its components, sound therapy and tinnitus-specific educational counseling, with the standard of care on tinnitus-related quality of life. The investigators found that there was no clinically meaningful difference in extent of reduction in tinnitus distress or other important end points among patients in the 3 intervention groups. Hammil and Esquivel provide an Invited Commentary.
