The Definitive Guide To Detecting Your Tinnitus Frequency
Detecting your tinnitus frequency isn’t easy. Data shows that about fifty percent of users will be able to consistently and reliably identify a tinnitus frequency that matches their own. This process is called “pitch-masking,” “frequency-matching,” or “tinnitus tuning” (all of these terms are interchangeable). The process consists of matching a computer-generated artificial tinnitus tone with the tinnitus tone that you can hear inside of your head. Our tinnitus tuner is free of charge, and can be accessed at this link. It’s also a necessary component of our therapeutic program (since we “notch” the audio at your … Continue Reading

Audio Notch Filter
What is the Audio Notch Filter and how does it work? Check out the following infographic below to see – focus in on Step 2:
The notch filter cuts out one equivalent rectangular bandwith on each side of the tinnitus frequency. The notch filter is based on this study (please note: the Notched Music study used a larger filter with one octave on each side of the tinnitus frequency).
An example of how the processing functionally works (from a Notched Music paper):… Continue Reading
AudioNotch Releases Another Major Tuner Update
AudioNotch is pleased to announce another update to our highly popular free tinnitus tuner. Under the option “wave type,” a new type of sound has been added. The new type of sound is “BB Noise,” which is short for “Broadband Noise.” Many individuals have atypical tinnitus tones which do not sound like the classic “pure tone,” (which basically is a high frequency humming). This new option will allow users with more unique tinnitus tones to better match their tinnitus frequencies and thus use Notched Sound Therapy.
For those of you who don’t know, our Tinnitus Tuner is a free application that … Continue Reading
AudioNotch Review & Success Rate Data – One Month and Two Month Surveys
For a long time, our users have asked us about the success rate of AudioNotch. And for a long time, we’d told them the truth: we don’t actually have this data, because not enough people respond to our internal surveys about the efficacy of our tinnitus treatment. Basically, a small percentage of our users respond to our automated feedback surveys, which are sent at one and two month intervals after purchase. So really, we only have a partial understanding of the data on our actual success rate.
However, we believe in allowing users to make an informed decision about whether to purchase a … Continue Reading

AudioNotch and the Potential Risk of Temporary Increases in Tinnitus Loudness
In rare cases, listening to Tailor-Made Notched Sound Therapy can temporarily increase the baseline volume of your tinnitus.
Your “baseline” tinnitus volume is the volume of your tinnitus at rest with no external sound input other than ambient noise from a regular environment.
There are multiple possible explanations:
1. Incorrect detection of tinnitus frequency, resulting in a “Notch” that does not overlay the user’s actual tinnitus frequency.
2. Listening to Notched Sound Therapy at an unsafe volume level (exceeding 85 dB), as any loud noise can exacerbate tinnitus if it is too loud.
3. Some users have correctly detected their tinnitus frequency and listen at … Continue Reading
Will AudioNotch Work in My Sleep?
We’ve received multiple queries about individuals interested in using AudioNotch while they’re sleeping. Will it work? The short answer is: there’s not enough evidence to say. The studies have only be done on conscious subjects. I’ve heard of some anecdotal evidence on forums of people indicating that Notched Sound Therapy worked in their sleep (in fact, I’ve had some positive results myself), but at this point, there isn’t enough scientific data to make the case either way. If you’re a user of AudioNotch, you may be interested in trying it as an experiment on yourself. Let us know your experience … Continue Reading
