AudioNotch is a mobile app that allows you to create and listen to Notched Sound Therapy that has been customized for your particular tinnitus frequency.
Tinnitus is the perception of sound in the absence of any external environmental sound. It affects millions of people worldwide, and usually presents as a persistent ringing in the ears. (4)
Notched Sound Therapy is a tinnitus treatment that can lower the volume of your tinnitus tone. It is created by taking either music or "white noise" and removing the sound energy—"notching it out"—at the same frequency of your tinnitus tone. (2) In some experiments, tinnitus volume was reduced by 75%, 26%, and 20%, respectively. (1,2,3)
- The ability to match your tinnitus frequency using our tinnitus tuner (free, does not require an account)
- The ability to create Notched Sound Therapy customized for your particular tinnitus frequency (requires paid account)*
- The ability to listen to Notched Sound Therapy (requires paid account)
*Notched White Noise and Notched Natural sounds can be created directly in the mobile app. However, creating Notched Music requires the usage of our companion web application on a computer (access to this is also provided after In-App Purchase of a paid account). Notched Music created via a computer can be listened to on the mobile app.

Developer Response ,
Hey there - thanks for catching this bug in a previous version! We've submitted a fix that should go through within the next 24 hours or so.
Doesn’t do anything unless you pay
I might be willing to hand over a lot of money if I knew this worked. I created an account, set up my frequency but then it stops cold with a paywall before you can try it. Why would they do this? Likely because the implementation or results are poor and they feel they need to trick you into paying before you can try it and find out. It doesn’t do anything except waste your time unless you sign up for a plan. I will delete this app and make some files for free in Audacity with my notch frequency based on published research.
Paid but no Service
Paid the 2 month service fee over a week ago but the App says I haven’t paid up. PayPal shows that I paid. Sent a couple emails asking the App what’s happening but no one has responded. Can’t tell what’s going on. Seems as if customer service needs some work.
