The Beltone Tinnitus Calmer™ app uses a combination of sounds and relaxing exercises that aim to distract your brain from focusing on tinnitus. Over time the brain learns to focus less on the tinnitus.
The app lets you manage your personal library of sound therapy files and allows you to create your own soundscapes from environmental sounds and small pieces of music. It will also track your usage, so you can see which sounds work best for you, and it contains some secondary stimuli like colors and exercises to help keep your mind occupied.
Just download it and listen to it as you normally listen to music from your smart phone. If you wear Beltone® wireless hearing aids, you can stream directly through them; the sound you stream will be adjusted to compensate for your hearing loss.
The app is a tool for anyone who has tinnitus. It should be used in combination with a tinnitus management programme or plan set up by a hearing care professional.

Ratings and Reviews
I rarely write reviews but I think everyone who suffers from Tinnitus should consider trying this. I stumbled on the name of this app as I researched the condition and ways to deal with it. At times the condition is truly maddening and I needed a way to manage it so I figured it was worth a try. Admittedly I have not tried any others because this app worked absolutely great! There are multiple sounds that you can listen to in order to drown out that sickening inner ear noise or you can make up a combination of them that works for you. If needed, it has a timer to shut off the sounds if you happen to need it to help you fall asleep. I truly appreciate having this app available. Since it’s on my cell phone I have it with me at all times when the surrounding noises just aren’t enough.
Finding just the right balance reduced my tenitis for two days then I switched “sounds” and my ears were ringing again. So, experiment and find a sound that most mimics the ringing tone in your ears; listen to it every night and it just might work for you as well. So glad I got this app. Easy to use; multiple sounds to choose from and it worked for me!
TBD whether this provides any benefit to my tinnitus other than she listening but it has, hands down, the best beach sound I’ve heard in an app. No discernible repeat, no annoying seagull sounds.
One minor point: if disconnecting a Bluetooth headset would pause playback this would be much better. It’s consistent with other audio apps and prevents wave sounds from blasting out of phone when I turn my headphones off.
