What Is Tinnitus?
Tinnitus, or ringing in the ears, is a condition in which you hear phantom sounds that other people do not hear. The sounds are a result of age-related hearing loss, an injury to your ear or circulatory system disorders. This perception of sound in the ears is a common frustration and affects up to one in every five adults in the United States. Treatments such as iTunes tinnitus melodies aim to mask the ringing in your ears so that the tinnitus does not annoy you or cause negative impacts on your life.
How Our Itunes Tinnitus Sounds Work
Each person experiences a different frequency of tinnitus sounds. If you want to use masking audio to get rid of the tinnitus, you will need to detect the frequency of the sounds you perceive. You can do this on the Audio Notch website or with a participating audiologist. Once you know the frequency of your tinnitus, you will then visit the Audio Notch website and create a masking audio file. The online software is easy to use and simple to navigate through. Your customized notched sound therapy will be produced online. You can then stream or download your personalized audio file and play it on your desktop or laptop computer for up to 1.5 hours per day as a form of tinnitus therapy. You can also download your file to any device with MP3 capability.
What to Expect from Our Itunes Tinnitus Sounds
Over time, the volume of your tinnitus sounds will decrease. Once you no longer notice tinnitus, you may decrease the frequency of the therapeutic audio files. If you discover that your frequency of tinnitus changes, you can simply make yourself a new notched audio file and restart your therapy with the new sounds. Most people notice that the volume of their tinnitus decreases within a few weeks. Over the course of a few months, your tinnitus may go away or bother you only intermittently.
How to Access Itunes Tinnitus Sounds and Use Them
Accessing the iTunes Tinnitus therapy system is simple. Just go to your account page and open iTunes. Then choose the file that you want to listen to. If you are importing the file onto an iTunes-compatible device, be sure to sync your device so that it receives the new data. Play your white noise file on a repeat pattern according to your treatment plan.
