Cover your tinnitus

Yes, there are applications that relieve tinnitus!

These applications play relaxing sounds or music that provide a comfortable background to your environment that “camouflages” tinnitus. At last you can think! There are sounds and types of music for everyone, from blowing wind to running water, birdsong to ocean waves and more. You choose what you prefer. You can listen to these applications with standard speakers, ear buds when you sleep or conventional earphones. If you have hearing aids with Bluetooth, you can also play the apps directly in your hearing aids.

To help you enrich your sound environment, choose from the free application below.
