Do you have tinnitus or “ringing in the ears”? Tinnitus HQ helps you understand and relieve your tinnitus symptoms.

Recent research shows that tinnitus can be treated by listening to sounds that have been filtered to remove your specific tinnitus frequencies.*

With Tinnitus HQ, you can apply advanced filters to over 500 high-quality sounds to find relief for your symptoms.

Simply apply a bandpass filter to any sound or mix to isolate frequencies in a narrow range. Move this filter up and down the frequency range until it closely matches the ringing frequency in your ears.

Add a bandstop filter at these frequencies to any sound or mix to create your tinnitus mask.

You can set a wide range of filter widths from 0.1 to 4.0 octaves, down to 1Hz resolution.

Simply Notch Therapy For Tinnitus

Ottawa Bob

Very happy with Tinnitus HQ. Nice, simple user interface to create ‘notch’ and mix different sound files together. Extensive library of sound files to select from to create custom library. As for effectiveness in reducing perception of tinnitus, only time will tell.

After a few days of use, I have one recommendation for the developer. Setting the frequency of the notch could be improved significantly by adding “+” and “-“ buttons to the current ‘slider’ control. This would allow precise setting of the tinnitus frequency. Also, adding similar “+/-“ controls to files in a mix would provide better balancing in a mix.

Great, economical app! Looking forward to reduced perception of tinnitus and future upgrades/improvements to the app.

Good developers, good app


I use this to mask my tinnitus for sleeping, works well and has a great assortment of sounds you can mix together. The developers respond promptly to problems.



ZERO info about how to use this app. ZERO. Also, why not make the filters available for “outside” sources, such as my music. Big waste.
