When not wearing it, though, I notice it, so it FEELS like my ears mostly only ring when the implant is off now. But it's a lot easier to deal with since I get a "break" from the tinnitus during the day when with the implants on. Additionally, the ringing isn't as severe... it's sort of like after a full day of the implant overriding the tinnitus, my brain is conditioned to cope with it better once it comes off. If that makes sense.
