Current medical research identified regular listening to tailor-made notched music as a novel and promising therapy for tinnitus patients.
In this enjoyable and low-cost approach, patients listen to their favorite music, from which a certain frequency band - centered around the tinnitus frequency - has been removed. Clinical studies show that listening to this so-called notched music for at least one hour per day during a period of six month can significantly reduce the perceived tinnitus loudness.
This app allows everybody suffering from tinnitus to create their own notched music.It takes an arbitrary piece of music in .mp3-format as input, applies a user-defined notch filter to remove a small frequency band around the tinnitus frequency.
The app also provides tools that help patients to determine their individual tinnitus pitch and to design tailor-made notch filters that best fit their needs. In addition, this app visualizes the energy spectrum of the notched music such that patients can easily check if applying the notch filter produced the desired result.
In addition, the app allows you to access your Spotify account such that you can also use all of Spotify's music for your own therapy. For this service, however, Spotify requires you to have a Spotify premium account.
If you need to mask your tinnitus for a while or have other reasons to listen to relaxing sounds, you can try the all-new noise generator. It provides White, Pink and Brown Noise. The noise is generated in real-time which avoids unwanted repetition patterns.
In addition, the app provides a variety of other relaxing background noise patterns such as waves hitting the beach, a light thunderstorm in summer or people talking in a restaurant.
This app is completely ad-free and requires only one single permission.
