Nix Tinnitus Player helps address tinnitus by making use of the concept of notch therapy using your own iTunes music library. The user determines at what frequency tinnitus is experienced, and Player functions to remove selected frequency from music being played. This results in being able to listen to your favorite music, along with the relief that comes from removal of tinnitus-producing frequency from your listening experience.
To identify the frequency at which tinnitus is present, press the Find Frequencies tab bar item. Press the Play button at the center of the screen, and adjust the main slider the change the sound frequency. If the resulting sound is similar to your tinnitus, press the Add button in the upper left. If you accidentally press Add for the wrong frequency, just press Remove to delete that selection. Up to three frequencies can be added. Adjust the volume of the sound with the smaller slider. Once you are finished, press Save and then press Listen to return to the main screen.
To select music to add from your library, press Add Music to Playlist, and select all songs to which you wish to listen. Press Done when finished selecting music. Press Play button to start playing selected music; app will automatically play all the songs in the playlist and continue to loop through them. Press Clear to remove all songs from the playlist. Use Nix Tinnitus Player daily for best results to help with tinnitus.
