This binaural beat audio is designed to decrease the effects of tinnitus in certain debilitated individuals.
Tinnitus is characterized as a ringing or noise in the ears. According to the Mayo Clinic, this affects about 1 in 5 people and is typically a symptom of an underlying condition such as ear injury, aging, or a disorder within the circulatory system. Tinnitus can also manifest itself in others ways besides a physical ringing in one’s ears. It has been known to cause a general state of poor health along with depression, fatigue, and anxiety.
A study done by David, Naftali, and Katz was published in the November 2010 issue of “The Hearing Journal” (Vol. 63 No. 11). This study was conducted to measure the effects on tinnitus when treated by a multifactorial approach, referred to as Tinntrain. One of the most important elements of tinntrain discussed is the Brain Wave Entrainment (BWE) technique, which is based on frequency stimuli and binaural beats.
26 patients were chosen to take part in this 3-month study. The subjects listened to the binaural beat session, which included the carrier wave, binaural sound, and a background sound mostly associated as white noise, such as the sound of rain. Multiple measurements were used both at the beginning and end of this study including the Tinnitus Handicap Inventory (THI), and both stress related symptoms and anemnetic questionnaires. The results found that the session reduced the degree of tinnitus disturbance in all 26 patients.
