Interactions between sounds and tinnitus are real. Certain sounds can induce tinnitus, while others can alter your perception of it, mask it, or even suppress it. Sometimes, a simple white noise generator will do the trick. Sometimes, more complex sound sources are needed, such as our tinnitus neuromodulator, which can mask your tinnitus while the sound generator plays and quieten it when the generator stops. Now, don’t be misled—not all tinnitus can be treated with simple sound therapy, and no single sound stimulus has proven effective for all tinnitus sufferers. All the serious studies are very clear about this. This is also why you can find so many different sound stimuli on the market.
This noise generator – White Bursts – is an alternative to classic static white noise. Research has shown that patterned sounds can be more effective for some individuals than static sounds since time-varying signals induce stronger cortex responses. Silence is also important because it lets the ear recover from the stimulus. That’s why our white-noise burst generator alternates between periods of intense stimulus and silence.
