New app claims to cure tinnitus with music

Tinnitracks is a new therapy that treats tinnitus and claims to actually reverse the effects, using altered music of your choosing

German company Sonormed claim to have found a cure for tinnitus, reducing the effects by up to 50%. What’s more, they claim you can do this just by listening to techno.

Tinnitus can be incredibly debilitating and painful for its sufferers, and there are a lot of them. It is estimated that around 10% of the UK population (roughly six million) suffer from some form of the condition, with 600,000 suffering severely.

For the most part, there have to date been very few options in the way of a physical treatment, with most sufferers only option to be cognitive-based therapies aimed at distracting oneself from the discomfort. Sonoromed’s new prescription app claims to change this, and according to clinical results, users experience between 25-50% reduction in symptoms.

The app works by removing the damaging frequencies in music sent to the company by the patient. The songs then have what’s called a ‘therapeutic gap’ that then alleviates the ringing in the listener’s hearing. The process is revolutionary as it focuses on the brain rather than the ears.

For an in-depth look at how the app works, head to the Tinnitracks website.
