Not too many of those with tinnitus realise that they can turn it off at anytime for a short period by listening to a similar tone their own tinnitus pitch. Luckily sound and speaker hobbyists like tone generators and by googling for a tone or audio function app for your apple or android or windows you can easily then create a specific tone KHz output for your earbud headphone. You just keep adjusting the tone from say 1000 Hz, then 2000 Hz, then 3000 Hz or type in a Hz number until playing the sound turns off your T. I love it at night when just before I want to go to sleep I turn on my own tinnitus sound match tone on my phone and listen for 30 to 60 seconds in each ear. Because of something called ' residual inhibition' this turns off the brain tinnitus for a bit, I can then get to sleep easily and do the same if I wake in the night. I have recorded the same tone as an mp3 and play it when my T is loud during the day too on a little mp3 player. I feel much more that I control T than it controls me now.
