I am looking for a good sound machine to help with tinnitus.  Does anyone have one they like.  My tinnitus is so bad at night.  Thanks

Even if you don't buy from them, Amazon sells a number of them.  You can at least see the different kinds and read customer reviews.

@matty liz  I just play something from "Ambient Noise" on my Echo Show. I think you could do it with any Echo. I have tinnitus too, and right now I like "Rain on a Window." Just put it on continual rotation. My DD uses the Big Red Rooster White Noise Machine for her little daughter. It plugs in or works on a battery. It's lasted for 3 years so far and is on all the time. I think it cost around $16.00.

@matty liz   I've had tinnitus for a long time. You'll be using sound to distract your attention away from the tinnitus. It can be a fan, a radio, or one of those natural sound machines. If you decide on a natural sound machine, I would look for the lowest price just to try it out. I have one, but mostly I turn on the radio.

I've used a Homemedics sound machine for decades and I've only had to replace it once.  I think I paid about $20 or so. In a pinch, I can find white noise on my phone through apps. I don't have tinnitus but I'm a notoriously poor sleeper and can't go without this.

I don't have tinnitus but do appreciate white noise.  I run a fan in the bedroom at night.  During the day, in other parts of the house, I play a CD that's just fan noise, with the CD / DVD player set to repeat.  You can get other types of sound CD's - for example, pure white noise, rainstorm, waves on the beach, sounds of nature, etc.  If you have a digital assistant, like Alexa, I believe it can also play such sounds.

Appreciate each imput so.  All came up with different thoughts and very doable.  It is individual so I can see what works.  Thanks to each of you

I run a Hunter air purifier - it's a win/win ...noise and also clean air.

I have a Dohm Sound Machine. That kind has been around for a very long time. It was one of the original noise makers for sleeping. I like that it's adjustable to make the sound deeper or higher...whatever you need. Looks like this:
