For best results in using the TI100 to protect against loud snoring or other noises, we recommend the use of Comply T-200 Foam tips.
Using the Comply memory foam ear tips with the TI100 is highly recommended for improving both comfort and noise blocking. You can add these excellent ear tips when you order for an additional charge, or you may purchase them separately here
Newsound TI-100-LT In-Ear White Noise Machine and Tinnitus Masker is an ideal entry level device for helping you sleep better in spite of noises in the night, whether from a snoring bed partner, from the apartment next door, or from the street outside. By injecting a comfortable, soothing masking sound directly into your ear, you get relief from disturbing sounds in two ways. First, the presence of the soothing, modified white noise produced by the TI-100-LT raises the threshold of your hearing so that you do not perceive the disturbing sounds as loudly as you would with the open ear. In addition to this threshold effect, the sound produced by the TI-100-LT helps to drown out, or mask, the noises in the night that are keeping you awake. Adding a third level of defense against irritating noise are the foam tips provided with your TI-100-LT. These foam tips work like ordinary ear plugs, reducing the amount of noise that gets into your ears in the first place.
NewSound TI-100-LT In-Ear White Noise Machine and Tinnitus Masker Features and Benefits:
- In-ear white noise machine provides three way defense against noise: Raises hearing threshold, Masks noise, and Blocks noise (like an ordinary ear plug.)
- Universal fit devices fit most people and are small enough to wear through the night comfortably
- Replaceable foam ear tips included in two sizes to fit most users comfortably, and block much of the noise in your environment
- Silicone, non-noise-blocking ear tips are included for use as a tinnitus masker you can wear throughout the day
- Fingertip volume control means no tools required
- Full range volume adjustment, from inaudible to a safe all day or all night maximum of 83 dB, making TI-100-LT the perfect tool for tinnitus management, or masking loud noises in the night to help you sleep soundly.
- Powered by standard 10A hearing aid batteries (included).
- 30 day guarantee, plus a one year $25 repair warranty included.
- What's in the box: One or Two TI-100-LT devices (depending on the item you ordered), two pairs of foam tips (one large, and one small), two pairs of silicone tips (one large, and one small), sturdy carry/storage case, card of batteries, and instructions.
We want you to have the most cost-effective solution to your noise problem, so before you spend the money for any in-ear white noise device, if you have not already done so, we strongly suggest that you first try ordinary foam ear plugs. We have found that most people suffering with noise in the night, can get the relief they need by using a simple foam ear plug. The trick is to make sure you know how to get foam ear plugs properly and deeply inserted (see the video-will open in a new window.)
...and when ear plugs just are not enough, give the TI-100-LT a try. All you have to lose is a lot of sleepless nights!
One more thing...if you are a side sleeper, you might consider adding an ear pillow to your order. These pillows have a hole where your ear goes that eliminates any pressure on your ear that may be caused by lying on your side with the TI-100-LT in place. Most do not need the pillow, but some do, and we make it available in case you might need it.
Now Available in Regular and LT Versions
How do I choose?
Now you can choose between the original TI-100, which we developed primarily for noise management during sleep and the new TI-100-LT, which doubles as a tinnitus masker as well as helping manage noise during sleep. There are just a few differences between the two models. First, the original TI-100 has a tiny trimmer to adjust the volume, which requires a tool (included), and the volume is adjustable from a low of about 70 to a high of 83 dB. Our customers have told us that 70 dB is too high a minimum volume level for use as a tinnitus masker, so we developed the TI-100-LT to address this issue. The TI-100-LT has a fingertip volume adjustment, so no tool is required, and the volume is adjustable from inaudible to a maximum of 83 dB so you can use as little or as much sound as you need, and then change the volume easily whenever you need to do so. The LT version offers just one comfortable masking sound and is, therefore, less expensive than the TI-100, which offers 4 different sound profiles. The multiple sound profiles can be of great benefit in helping you find the right masking sound during sleep in your unique situation.
In summary, we suggest you choose the TI-100 if you are using it exclusively for sleep as it provides the four different sound profiles which can be helpful in addressing your unique sleeping with noise challenge.
If you are using the device primarily, or even partly as a tinnitus masker, we suggest you choose the TI-100-LT, because it gives you greater control over the volume setting which is crucial to this application: you should only use the minimum volume necessary to manage your tinnitus.
Finally, if you need the devices for sleep and you are on a tight budget, go ahead and get the TI-100-LT. The sound it produces is a nice mid-range masking sound that will almost certainly work for you. We have sold hundreds of SnoreMasker Pros over the more than ten years we were able to get them, and these were a single sound device, much like the new TI-100-LT. Based on our return history for SnoreMasker Pro, these worked well for more than 90% of the users who tried them. We are happy to finally have a quality replacement for the SnoreMasker Pro to offer the legion of fans this device has garnered.
