Here is a little pulse therapy application I made that I am offering up for free use on this blog. This application works on the principle of residual Inhibition – Instructions for use and description of pulses can be found below the application. Please feel free to leave comments after using it such as what tones help you best etc —- The working application can be found directly beneath this text. — enjoy
This application is made for use with headphones – as it uses high and low pitched sounds – good quality headphones are required to pick up these tones.
1. Put on headphones and make sure your volume on computer is low.
2. Choose a pulse using the backwards and forwards interface buttons.
3. Take note of the level of your tinnitus before starting – this will help you compare any difference in your tinnitus afterwards.
4. Press start and increase the volume to reasonable but not uncomfortable volume.
5. If you have greater hearing loss in one ear – use the pan button slider to adjust more sound into that ear.
6. After the pulses have finished – take note of any changes in tone or volume of your tinnitus.
Pulse 9 contains high pitched tones and may be uncomfortable for people with hyperacusis (sensitive hearing).
Description of pulses used :-
Pulse One – This is “purple noise” – purple noise is broadband static (similar to white noise) but the high frequency tones are increased logarithmically as you go up the scale. This may be useful for people with high frequency hearing loss.
Pulse Two – This is “pink noise” – pink noise is broadband static with the low frequency tones increased logarithmically lower down the scale. This may be useful for people with low frequency hearing loss.
Pulse Three – This is narrow band white noise, 10 – 12 khz.
Pulse Four – This is narrow band white noise, 6 – 8 Khz.
Pulse Five – This is narrow band white noise, 2 – 4 Khz.
Pulse Six – low shelf white noise, below 4Khz – This is white noise with all frequencies above 4khz removed.
Pulse Seven – White noise with 5Khz enhancement – This is white noise with a narrow band enhancement around 5Khz range.
Pulse Eight - A mixture of low frequency noises and pulses.
Pulse Nine - A mixture of high frequency noises and pulses.
