About this app

Tonal Tinnitus Therapy can help you when you suffer from tonal tinnitus. The app guides you through the configuration process. It creates therapy sounds in a continuous stream without any interruptions.

It is based on the principles of acoustic neuromodulation. You can read about it at: https://content.iospress.com/articles/restorative-neurology-and-neuroscience/rnn110218 Tonal Tinnitus Therapy cannot be used when your Tinnitus tone has a frequency above 15000 Hz. Using acoustic neuromodulation above 10000 Hz is an unknown area, but if you have such a high Tinnitus tone, you can try the therapy using Tonal Tinnitus Therapy.

Some people really benefit from it, others don't notice any difference. Experiences can be found on the Internet.

If you suffer from hyperacusis, then be careful when using the app. Start with a few short periods of usage on a very low volume. When the therapy tones cause negative effects, don't continue using the app.

In addition to the therapy tones, you can add masking white noise, pink noise, violet (purple) noise or brown noise to make it more pleasant. You can also use the masking noise without the therapy tones by lowering the therapy tones volume to zero.

The app is not free, but it offers a one week trial period. After that, you need to pay once for unlimited usage or you can start a subscription.

Usage is simple: first find the frequency of your most dominant Tinnitus tone. The app plays the selected frequency and you can change the frequency until it matches your tone. Don't do this too quickly, it is absolutely necessary to find the right frequency. You can always check again if you have the right frequency selected.

The app configures four therapy tones, two below and two above your Tinnitus tone. Acoustic neuromodulation uses these therapy tones in series of twelve with a short time interval to reset your Tinnitus tone. Before you start playing these series of therapy tones, you must check if you hear every therapy tone at the same volume. You can adapt the volume of every therapy tone if needed. Then you can start playing the therapy tones. While playing you can change the volume for left and right channel in the main screen. You can close the main screen and reopen it whenever you want. Playing the therapy tones happens in the background, you see the app icon in the notification bar while it is running.

It is recommended to listen every day for at least four hours to the therapy tones. The app shows every day how much time you already listened. Some people notice positive effects after one day, others after several weeks or months and others never.

When you use a headset and you unplug the headset, the app will pause playing. When you connect the headset again, the app will continue playing.

Usage of this app is at your own risk. Read on the Internet about Acoustic Neuromodulation before you start using the app. If the app has unpleasant effects, stop immediately using it.

If you have problems with the app or suggestions for improvement, please mail to info@appyhapps.nl

It definitely helps interrupt the ring or buzz in my ear. I really appreciate this app. Only thing is clicking the delete button next to a configuration doesnt do anything so I have a lot of clutter of saved configs. Other times the tinnitus tone wont play, perhaps because of the timer limit thing but it seems to take a few minutes to play if I change or elliminate the time limit. Otherwise one idea (if have time / interest) is to have the therapy tones to slightly & rabdomly vary in pitch

Hi Stan, thanks for your review and feedback. I'm sorry for the issue with the delete button, we will fix this with the next update. Previously it worked so we have to analyze this. We have not seen the issue that the tones won't play, can you contact me at info@appyhapps.nl? Thanks for the nice suggestion about the therapy tones!

Does what it says. A suggestion to the developers: It seems like some people complain about this app making their tinnitus worse. From my understanding, the therapy tends to work if the person is relaxed and doesn't pay attention to the sounds. If they play it while stressed and pay attention to the sounds, it can condition their brain in a way that makes their tinnitus experience even worse. Perhaps that should be researched and suggested in the tutorial as well. I use it while meditating.

Thanks for your review comment. That's a nice suggestion, we will try to include it in the usage recommendations in one of the following updates.

It hasn't cured my tinnitus, but the ability to save different frequencies and play them back has given me brief moments of relative silence, and the therapy tones seem to help as well. It can take a while to find a good tone match, so don't give up. I can't seem to delete saved tones though, so a have quite a few cluttered saved tones.

Hi Alex, thanks for your nice review. I'm glad that the app helps at least a little with your tinnitus. You can delete a saved configuration by first selecting it, and then long press the name of the configuration.

What's new

When configuring multiple therapy configurations, you can now alternate between these configurations automatically. You enable this in the app's settings menu.
