AudioNotch's mobile app allows you to create and listen to Notched Sound Therapy that has been customized for your particular tinnitus frequency.
Tinnitus is the perception of sound in the absence of any external environmental sound. It affects millions of people worldwide, and usually presents as a persistent ringing in the ears. (4)
Notched Sound Therapy is a tinnitus treatment that can lower the volume of your tinnitus tone. It is created by taking either music or "white noise" and removing the sound energy—"notching it out"—at the same frequency of your tinnitus tone. (2) In some experiments, tinnitus volume was reduced by 75%, 26%, and 20%, respectively. (1,2,3)
- The ability to match your tinnitus frequency using our tinnitus tuner (free, does not require an account)
- The ability to create Notched Sound Therapy customized for your particular tinnitus frequency (requires paid account)*
- The ability to listen to Notched Sound Therapy (requires paid account)
A paid AudioNotch account gives you full access to our mobile app and our web app. Through our web app, you can create and listen to the same Notched Sound Therapy audio files online.
*Notched White Noise and Notched Natural sounds can be created directly in the mobile app. However, creating Notched Music requires the usage of our web application on a computer (access to this is provided with the same paid account). Notched Music created via a computer can be listened to on the mobile app.
