StopTinnitus is designed to evaluate your tinnitus and cancel the noise generated by Tinnitus.
Use StopTinnitus to find the sounds that provide the most tinnitus relief for you. Once you find cancellation sound, you can save them to provide immediate access to tinnitus relief.
Based on sound therapy , StopTinnitus provides a flexible and easy to use interface for tone cancellation.
It works as follows -
Step 1 : Find Frequency -
Narrow down on your tinnitus tone/frequency. The wizard runs in two steps
2.1) Find approximate frequency.
2.2) Fine tune in a 1KHz band.
Step 2 : Tone cancellation -
This step helps to further fine tune the frequency and also find the phase shift parameter for cancellation.
Step 3 : Save Tone -
Save cancelled tone by adding a name and an optional note for easier identification.
Step 4: On saved tone page, confirm phase reversal with TFA mode overlying Frequency with selected tone and manually shifting phase of control tone.
Step 5: Use audio device, i.e. earbuds, blue tooth audio devices, headsets, speakers etc. to to deliver Tinnitus Noise cancelling relief.
(because of the complexity and variations of Tinnitus, may not work for all users)
Thank you for your positive and constructive input and suggestions. Hopefully another step forward in the relief from Tinnitus. Slight name change for continuity.
This update contains following features -
a. Tone Finder Assist(TFA) -
TFA helps you to identify how tone cancellation works on your Tinnitus frequency. You can check it while playing your saved tone.
b. Stereo/ Mono tone support
User can find frequencies separately for left and right ear, perform cancellation on each ear and save cancelled tone. Tone player can play & update cancellation tone separately for both ears.
In saved mode, frequency can be fined tuned by swiping and phase ship of tone can be confirmed with "TFA" mode, assisting in noise cancellation.
Ratings and Reviews
I don't like to leave bad reviews but when I pay nine dollars for something that doesn't work properly I feel it's my responsibility. I don't understand, it's 2015 and you go to any machine that requires you to dial in a frequency and they still have an analog dial. There is a reason for that. If you can't have a dial at the very least and up down arrow to select frequency so I am dumbfounded how you can build an app that needs to "dial in" frequency and it simply has no dial function. It scales up and you have to slam the stop button like it's a carnival game. Why not a simple slider that goes through the entire frequency scale?
This app should be free until you get enough feedback to make it sufficient enough to charge money. You should also have a suggestion button so people don't have to leave reviews to tell you what you need to fix.
Also shows three settings which has a play button, magic wand, and volume but no clue what those are doing for me. And zero explanation or help buttons to tell you what's going on...I thought this was going to be playing essentially a noise canceling wave to the frequency. Maybe It's doing that but how would I know??
The only thing I've seen this app do is double the intensity of my tinnitus.
Too difficult to use
Apparently the guys who wrote this app do not have tinnitus. Finding the right frequency can be extremely hard. The app only allows the tone search in one direction and it does it so fast you can't get it. There is no going back down to try again. Sure they allow a 1k change but if you are too far off that small adjustment does nothing. The ability app needs a "dial" to find frequency and it should also allow easier changes of the sound over time. Instead you have to just make a totally new profile again. I also have tinnitus only in one ear. You can make one ear zero volume but you still have to trudge through setting up both ears. The "forward only" mentality in this app kills it completely for me. It needs to be much more adjustment friendly.
RIGHT IDEA, POOR EXECUTION
The Good Things: Allows selection of different frequencies for each ear, with individual phase shifting.
It has the right idea, recognition where its due, the perfect concept. Find the tone that matches your tinnitus, then generate a similar tone with a phase that cancels the tinnitus tone.
The Challenging Thing: ... Selecting the target frequency was difficult to nail down for me. The tone generator would be easier for me to use if it was either a simple slider, or allowed slider adjustments after stopping “near” the target tone, which, in the current generation of the app, is the best you can hope for. I knew my individual frequencies from another tone generator app, but 20 minutes of trying to hit the “sweet spot” with the “auto generator” left me unable to get a usable cancellation tone.
Suggestion: Add slider to modify target tone, with the ability to either go back and modify the target tone, or adjust it during phase cancellation, without having to go back and start over. This is a great start, thank you.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
