Get your life back from tinnitus. Let Oto help you feel calmer, find control and sleep better with its expertly designed tinnitus program. Oto has helped thousands of people learn to live with tinnitus. 86% report feeling better and have less stress after just 1 month.

*‘I was told nothing would help and I had to live with it. Now I feel normal again!’* - Maid Myriam

There is tinnitus help. This is not a tinnitus cure but Oto will show you how to push tinnitus into the background of life, so you can get back to what matters. So whether it’s ringing in the ears, whooshing, buzzing or a range of sounds, in just a few minutes a day, Oto will help you get your life back from tinnitus.


Oto will teach you how to stop caring about tinnitus. Gradually you’ll become less and less aware of it so eventually you can forget it’s even there.


First up, you’ll discover which stage of the journey you’re at. Habituation is when tinnitus becomes like breathing: it’s a constant noise that is so normal, you forget it’s there. There are four stages to habituation and you’ll learn which one you’re at, as well as where you’re headed next.


You’ll listen to a 5-10 minute audio session each day which will introduce you to a range of clinically proven techniques. Over the course of the program, you’ll learn which techniques work best for you and how to use them in a normal day.

Enjoy the renowned therapy of Anna Pugh - an award winning tinnitus therapist - from the comfort of your own home with the daily sessions. Oto’s program has been created by doctors who understand tinnitus. They have tinnitus themselves, as well as decades of experience.

“So grateful for this app…Easily the best value for any app I've ever bought. I've spent more on professional visits that amounted to a shrug. Thank you Oto.” - Robert

“After having a scuba diving accident, I developed tinnitus. I found Oto, wow, what a blessing. I was going off my mind and suddenly this had success. Keep up the sessions, go over it again. Worth every penny, it’s a lifesaver. 10/10 stars Thanks to the Oto team.” - Clinton

“The OTO app has changed my life. I have had tinnitus for 3 years with no success in dealing with it. When I found the app and used it every day my life has changed. It hasn’t cured it but has helped me get in with my life instead of being a hostage to the noise. Each day is easier and brighter. Thank you.” - Taylor

amy the nurse ,


To know that I’m not alone struggling with tinnitus has been a life saver, the app has given me a community plus incredible ways to cope. As a very busy nurse I’ve sometimes wanted to even lose my hearing than cope with this which I know sounds ungrateful and dramatic but that’s what it can do to you. Thank you all so much for this app which is slowly being integrated into my life and helping me so much. Bless u George and the team

Trial period far too short

Honestly, the trial period of one week is too short for an app that is so expensive and one where you have to stump up the full year’s payment up front. Yes, it’s 9.99 a week but you have to pay for the full year in one go. It makes me think the developers are not truly confident it works for people otherwise you’d be able to pay for it monthly with the option of cancelling the subscription on a monthly basis (like most other apps). I would have tried it for longer if it wasn’t so much money required up front just on the off chance it might help.

Trialling it for one week made no difference to my tinnitus.

Developer Response ,

Hey there, we do offer a monthly subscription, which you are free to cancel at any time. If you would like, we'd be more than happy to offer you a free month to explore Oto as much as you like. Please message us either in-app or at hello@joinoto.com and we'll gladly extend your free trial :)

Highly recommended and really useful

I found this app at a time when my tinnitus had spiked and spiralled out of control. It offers a step by step approach with such useful activities. Who knew that I could not deep breath and clenched my jaw tightly for most of the day. This app helped me to gain some control, calm and relief. I use the app every day for sound therapy, relaxation exercises and for sleep at night. Thank you Oto team.

Developer Response ,

Hi Liz - so glad that you've found Oto useful. We've found that the relaxation exercises have been particularly helpful for many people with jaw clenching! Thanks so much for the positive review and do let us know if we can help with anything - hello@joinoto.com
