Using acoustic neuromodulation above 10000 Hz is an unknown area, but if you have such a high Tinnitus tone, you can try the therapy using Tonal Tinnitus Therapy.
Some people really benefit from it, others don't notice any difference. Experiences can be found on the Internet.
If you suffer from hyperacusis
, then be careful when using the app. Start with a few short periods of usage on a very low volume. When the therapy tones cause negative effects, don't continue using the app.
In addition to the therapy tones, you can add masking white noise, pink noise, violet (purple) noise or brown noise to make it more pleasant. You can also use the masking noise without the therapy tones by lowering the therapy tones volume to zero.
The app is not free, but it offers a one week trial period. After that, you need to pay once for unlimited usage or you can start a subscription.
Usage is simple: first find the frequency of your most dominant Tinnitus tone. The app plays the selected frequency and you can change the frequency until it matches your tone. Don't do this too quickly, it is absolutely necessary to find the right frequency. You can always check again if you have the right frequency selected.
The app configures four therapy tones, two below and two above your Tinnitus tone. Acoustic neuromodulation uses these therapy tones in series of twelve with a short time interval to reset your Tinnitus tone. Before you start playing these series of therapy tones, you must check if you hear every therapy tone at the same volume. You can adapt the volume of every therapy tone if needed. Then you can start playing the therapy tones. While playing you can change the volume for left and right channel in the main screen. You can close the main screen and reopen it whenever you want. Playing the therapy tones happens in the background, you see the app icon in the notification bar while it is running.
It is recommended to listen every day for at least four hours to the therapy tones. The app shows every day how much time you already listened. Some people notice positive effects after one day, others after several weeks or months and others never.
When you use a headset and you unplug the headset, the app will pause playing. When you connect the headset again, the app will continue playing.
Usage of this app is at your own risk. Read on the Internet about Acoustic Neuromodulation before you start using the app. If the app has unpleasant effects, stop immediately using it.
