      Has listening to Binaural beats made your T worse; if it did, did it eventually return to baseline? I tried it for the first time and it made my T much worse. My T is now what seems multi-tonal at much higher pitches, louder, pulsating with odd sensations in my head. Going crazy and want to kick myself.

      Has anyone had this happen as well? Did it eventually return to baseline? I looked for a thread pertaining to this issue but could not find one, so sorry for redundancy if it applies.

      Haha yes I have once too made this mistake, any negative symptoms will usually fade within a few weeks. Its made worse if you experienced it through headphones.

      A binaural beat is an auditory illusion perceived when two different pure-tone sine waves, both with frequencies lower than 1500 Hz, with less than a 40 Hz difference between them, are presented to a listener dichotically, that is one through each ear.[1] For example, if a 530 Hz pure tone is presented to a subject's right ear, while a 520 Hz pure tone is presented to the subject's left ear, the listener will perceive the auditory illusion of a third tone, in addition to the two pure-tones presented to each ear. The third sound is called a binaural beat, and in this example would have a perceived pitch correlating to a frequency of 10 Hz, that being the difference between the 530 Hz and 520 Hz pure tones presented to each ear.[2]

      Update: The spike has gone down to a whisper at times. I'm on the 7th day of a 21 day fast and have seen an acupuncturist. Fasting has help considerably and I can honestly say the T volume dropped in the last 5 minutes of a 25 minute session (first visit). I have seen him twice and will be going again this Sunday. I have hope again! The fast is a result of the 5/2 diet spoke about on here as well as spiritual beliefs. I don't know which is providing a primary effect, but I don't care a this point. Should my T resolve before the conclusion of my fast, I'm surly going to go the distance in thanks! I'm praying for you all. Should any of you find yourself in need of prayer, simply shoot me a name by way of PM (no detail necessary). Thereyago.

      Theta waves are the ones that help tinnitus if you binaural beat used beta waves it can aggravate t instead of help. Coming from a guy who got rid of t fully just last week from listening to theta wave binaural beat 2 times a day at 30 mins for a week I posted a link in the success stories section. If you listen lay down relax use headphone on moderate to low volume

      I can vouch that it can make it worse, i listend to brief moments at a time today through monitor speakers, and like alot of people it actually gave me silence for a brief time, but then the T came back louder and much higher pitch, hopefully this spike on a spike will die down... You just cant catch a break with Tinnitus sigh, everything out there that is supposed to help fucks me in the ass.

      I've listened to another Youtube video and it did seem to reduce the highest pitch ringing temporarily.
