      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.

      Stay away from this:

      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.

      Update: I'm 1.5 years out from said evil video and still not back to baseline. I'd love to try theta waves as mentioned about but way too Fu King scared to do so.

      Hi
      I was wondering if you ever found a solution to this induced worsening? In particular did your other worsened symptoms like the pulsating in your head ever resolve? Did you actively do anything to improve them? Sounded like acupuncture might have helped somewhat... I ask because I have fallen for this gimmick and experienced pretty much the same worsening. Only been a few days but started out feeling so dizzy it was mad. I am so pissed off about this. I did only listen for maybe 5 - 10 minutes and it does seem to be getting gradually less severe (edging back towards normal) but still now it’s like any silence is filled with the ongoing resonant pulses. Agggh it makes me angry. It’s as frustrating as an itch on the inside of the skull.

      Sorry, had not seen your post until now. My symptoms have not ever fully went away, but have gotten better. Unfortunately, the additional tone it created in my left ear has never gone away. I really think people posting these videos should take them down due the complete shit storm they can cause far, far outweighing the positive. I know I would.

      Binaural beats
      Does anybody know why my ears would start ringing after listening to binaural beats?

      I listen to it on the lowest volume and it is the only thing that clears my sinuses. Is it wrecking my hearing if it is on the lowest volume (I don't even turn it up enough to really hear it, and this didn't become a problem until the 6th or 7th time using it; now it's every single time.

      How would it damage my hearing when all other science says that it doesn't?

      And you have to use headphones in order for it to work, so this really sucks because it's the only thing that helps me breath, and I was so happy that I could breathe through my nose and sleep at night.

      I tried it once and within a few minutes my tinnitus started changing pitch weirdly, so I quickly stopped and it settled back to its normal annoying but predictable whine. Sounds like I had a lucky escape - hope it settles for you.

      I can't listen to anything on headphones for more than 10 minutes without feeling uncomfortable now (which means effectively I've stopped using my lovely new Sennheisers)

      Sigh - I think I need to head for that Positivity thread now.

      I think if you have heathy ears one is just fine. It's if you have T you should stay clear.

      I've listened to tons of binaural stuff using headphones.

      it never helped my tinnitus or did any of the other things people claim it does to them, not it certainly didn't hurt me. I'd be more suspicious of an anxiety spike. It will settle down
