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.

Ratings and Reviews
Simply Notch Therapy For Tinnitus
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.
Great flexible over all tool for tinnitus / sleep with one caveat..
This app and its built in combination of sounds worked like a miracle for the first night I used while sleeping in new apt with thin floors, nicely blocking any footstep sounds while tending to my tinnitus frequency that caused erratic audio disruptions on a non notched noise sound. Unfortunately midway through night two my mind picked up on the loop point in the white & pink noise audio recordings and then that was basically jarring me up every time it cycled through (roughly :30 - a minute) and it could not be EQ’d out / away. Longer, more seemless loops and the ability to stagger start points of samples would help in solving this problem. As would the ability to use eq notching on outside sources and or upload ones owns sounds at a length that would be less detectable by those with sensitive ears and sleep lightly. Or even an actual noise generator in sound suites. Thank you for the almost life saving app! Please consider adding something like this or a standalone notching app for all us struggling with sleep / tinnitus.
Developer Response ,
Please try a range of different sounds, there are over 500 in the sound catalog. You can also create unlimited multi-sound mixes with independent volume per sound. There are billions of potential combinations and one should work for you. Please contact us via “Questions or Feedback” in the app, we’d be glad to help further.
Excellent tool for tinnitus!
