Cochlear Implants (CIs) aren't typically given to those with ANs who have lost hearing. 

BAHA implants are the norm.

BAHAs have no affect on tinnitus.  They won't cause it if you don't have it.  They won't eliminate it if you suffer from it.  They won't increase or decrease it.

I don't actually "make" trouble..just kind of attract it, fine tune it, and apply it in new and exciting ways
