Individuals who have tinnitus may experience a ringing or high-pitched sound on a constant basis. This may be true even in a quiet room or anywhere else where there is no actual source of noise. Tinnitus may make it difficult to sleep, interact with others or live a normal life in general. However, there are treatment options such as a test tone generator that may help reduce symptoms of the condition.

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