      Please, let us know what you discover! :)

      I only briefly examined the website, but it looks like the CD's work on residual inhibition. The effect doesn't last long after the CD's are removed. Still, if you're spiking, the CD's would be wonderful for people--especially those who can't mask!

      I found four references to the dentinnitiser, but only two had brief conversations. The second reference cited some links, but they were no longer valid. (And their names seemed suspect.) There is a reference to a pdf on residual inhibition, but not from using the dentinnitiser.

      I wish there scientific were studies on the device. That the website looks amateurish is also a bummer! But, again, if the CDs work then nothing else matters. I know people love Petroff's CD's, but they are no longer available. Perhaps, these CDs can be used instead.

      Spoke to him today an engineer and a good guy.His machine which you can go and try before you buy in central england will sit in the room and somehow turn your T off,dont ask me how ring yourself!!!!!! Only while on though.
      It will be a combo of all his old machines .Plus he aligns your unique CD to your frequencies and does the same job.

      He works on this one day a week and obviosly through speaking to him a well meaning fella.

      He will let me know when its happening and ill go up there from london.

      Looks interesting. The only problem with your unique CD is that it doesn't change with your hearing profile. And if you are having an off day when you create it, then you have something that is permanently not quite right.

      Looking at the info, it seems that it is basically customised masking. Your hearing profile, where you see the dips on a chart, is 'filled in' by sound that is assumed to be your tinnitus frequency - as long as your tinnitus actually does match any hearing loss that you have. The interesting part is in the sounds that he uses, I'd love to hear them and analyse the content.

      The price of the CD's is a bit steep, I know there is an amount of work that has to go into them but £37.90 for 3 CD's is not a 'special offer' at all.

      Did he say what he would be charging for the machine?

      Yes Stephen Ostler is his name and he is a genuine guy who has suffered from tinnitus for the las ten years. He runs a radio / tv restoration business not far from me and is also an inventor and while he has no medical qualifications he does know a lot about audio and sound waves and developed various devices over the years that work on the residual inhibition method. I'm signed up to give his mark V model a go when he finalises the production later this year ( he devotes one day a week to his detinnitiser business) he claims that his device (s) work for him and as he has a similar high frequency whistling hissing tinnitus to me which seems to be quite common then I am hopeful it may work for me. Cost will probably be around £100 or so with a refund if not satisfied as stated on his website.

      Just got this from Stephen


      You asked to be kept posted as to when I started tinnitus consultations again. You may recall this was waiting until the new "Detinnitiser V" was ready. Development of this product has taken far longer than anticipated. Anyway, it's now ready at last!

      The Detinnitiser is only available to try at a consultation. The consultation itself is completely free. There will be no pressure to buy anything and we will explore the lower cost options first. All the options are on the web site at www.detinnitiser.com/order.html .

      Why are consultations free? Well, they are useful to me because I can try out my products in a relaxed, informal setting with a wide range of tinnitus sufferers and build up a performance profile. Remember my method is not a cure, but it can give real relief. This is not 'tinnitus masking' either. Instead, it should be thought of as 'tinnitus displacement'. If your tinnitus is responsive to residual inhibition, I may well be able to help you. Nevertheless there are no promises, and you should come here in a spirit of healthy scepticism!

      For the present I am only seeing tinnitus sufferers on Sundays and Mondays. It may therefore be some weeks before I can see you. If you would like to fix up an appointment, drop me an email now and we will arrange a suitable time.

      With best regards,

      Stephen Ostler

      Your hearing system doesn't shut down while you're asleep.Not to mention that T is an internal sound.
