Hearing Aid Noise Maskers

Has anyone tried a hearing aid type device that serves as a noise masker? My hearing is fine but my tinnitus has gone up in volume from a #1 or #2 to about a #5 in volume over the past two months. I was exposed to loud music without ear plugs two months ago. I've had a mild tinnitus for about 25 years and never considered it a serious problem until now.
