What is tinnitus?
Tinnitus is the perception of a sound within the ear, without a real sound being actually emitted from outside the auricle.
Some people do not find this condition to be of disturbance, while for others it can be extremely annoying as it is perceived as a constant whistle, buzz in the head or hiss that distracts the brain and diverts its capacity of concentration from everyday tasks.
The ear's educational treatments for tinnitus are based on sound therapy. During the latter, the patient listens to an artificially generated sound as similar as possible to the one his ear perceives for 4 to 6 hours a day. This sound masking mitigates the perception of sound, re-establishing a new threshold to auditory experiences.
If the audio treatment is continued for 6 weeks straight, the symptoms of tinnitus are lessened considerably, and even appear to disappear completely.

I have been wanting to try something like this
And was glad to see an app. However it appears to not offer a sound to match/reach the high pitched "tone" I hear. And yes I paid to unlock.
How are you to know what sound/pitch to use?
Well, it stinks. There are quite a different noises you can use to find the one that suits the tinnitus in your ears, but the majority of the sounds are locked and you have to pay four dollars to unlock them. OK. So that's the way you want to play? The problem comes in and that you think you're getting an app that's going to do something for free. Well, obviously not! It should just be upfront and say that if you really want to use this app you're going to have to pay four dollars. I might have paid the four dollars. But now I'm feeling a little stubborn.
Like it, but....
The free "unlocked" music choices are getting old. Cannot find how to unlock the other choices??
