      Hi @JodieStephens

      I have never used Neuromodulation tones. It has been around for a while and needs to be administered/setup through a specialist clinic. The treatment is expensive which will not come as a surprise. Some people have tried a DIY method. Youtube has plenty of sounds but as I said never tried it.

      I have been using a TIEX tinnitus therapy device for a number of years. It is expensive but works for me but doesn't help everyone.
      All the best

      I doubt it, but it's worth asking.

      Could ACRN make tinnitus worse sometimes?

      Don't think so, I've been playing mine ARCN through my laptop speakers on super low volume and basically for me it just masks the noise (I probably need to recheck my T Tone again). I don't use headphones at all anymore.

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Loud noise exposure? stress? ototoxic drugs? who knows..
      Well sad to tell that it does not work on me anymore :( I don't know what has happened, maybe my brain figured it out or something?? Yesterday I could clearly tell that it lowered it because I have this clear ringing tone in my right ear and when I played the track it began fluctuating and then lowered. Now it does not work.

      Oh well, maybe it will only work sometimes....I will keep the track in my favorites and try it every now and then.

      I am starting to conclude this. (In my case). But always temporarily in my experience. So it will return to "baseline"again.

      What I do know for certain (after more than one year of using ACRN), it does not work for my tinnitus.

      Does anyone have this treatment for 6000 - 7000 Hertz? Any help would be appreciated.

      Here it is for 6 kHz, and here it is for 7 kHz. To be efficient, you are supposed to target it to your own T frequency though. For example, if your T was at 6.5 kHz, these would not be the right therapy to listen to, according to the protocols specified in scientific literature.

      Neuromodulation isn't about filling out what you can't hear. It's about dealing with T. It works if your T is tonal (or heavily concentrated in one location of the spectrum).
      For example, you could have hearing loss from 6 kHz to 8 kHz, but have a 4 kHz tone T. Often the T is where the hearing loss is, so in your case it is possible that it is in the 6-8 kHz range, but it could be 6.1 kHz or 7.9 kHz. The only way to know is to do a pitch match. You can do that online for free. Here you can find the tools to figure out the pitch/frequency of your T.
      Once you have that, you can start listening to sound therapy specifically built for that frequency.
