The Definitive Guide To Detecting Your Tinnitus Frequency

Written by AudioNotch Team on September 01, 2019


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 tinnitus … Continue Reading

Study Validates AudioNotch Tinnitus Tuner

A recent study has validated the efficacy of the “sliding frequency scale” tuner that is available on our web site (for free) to assist users in detecting their tinnitus tone. The study indicated that our tuner is comparable in effectiveness to the tuning performed by an audiologist in an anechoic sound chamber. Check it out here!

OBJECTIVES:

We investigated the accuracy of a web-based protocol for tinnitus frequency matching compared to that of tinnitus pitch matching performed by an audiologist using an audiometer in an anechoic chamber.

METHODS:

Twenty subjects underwent tinnitus frequency-matching in a random order using an audiometer in an anechoic … Continue Reading

Tinnitus Frequency Detection – Science Provides Some Tips

There’s a great deal of interesting research on tinnitus pitch matching – a term synonymous with tinnitus pitch detection, or “tinnitus tuning.” An important paper we’d like to bring to the attention of AudioNotch users is entitled “Comparison of manual and computer-automated procedures for tinnitus pitch-matching.” This paper has some very important lessons for those of us interested in matching our tinnitus pitch. Consider the following points culled from the paper’s abstract:
Three methods for tinnitus pitch-matching were performed in a group of 42 subjects. Two methods were computer-automated (Binary and Subject-Guided) and the third method as a traditional manual technique.

Each method … Continue Reading

Detecting Your Tinnitus Tone: Scientific Research

Written by AudioNotch Team on September 30, 2012

Categories: Tinnitus

There are multiple methods available for detecting a user’s tinnitus tone. Detecting a user’s tinnitus tone can be done manually, with computer-aided guidance, or even with the aid of an audiologist in a sound booth in select audiology clinics. This particular study compared three alternative methods:
The most prominent pitch of tinnitus was measured in 10 subjects with sensorineural tinnitus. The pitch was determined with three different psychophysical procedures in the ear ipsilateral to the tinnitus; an Adaptive Method (Bracketing), a Method of Limits (ascending and descending), and the Method of Adjustment. Each procedure involved equating the pitch of a pure tone to the most prominent tinnitus … Continue Reading
