If you have tried residual inhibition, did it temporarily eliminate your tinnitus?

      I tried it but it doesn't get rid of all my tinnitus. Only some. Most of my right ear it does. Basically, for me, it seems to get rid of all the tinnitus that can be masked. I haven't done it in a while because I am not sure if it safe. I definitely wouldn't want anyone else hurting themselves either.

      Go to google and type "residual inhibition" and then click on the .pdf at the top.

      So in simple it essentially is intended to re-awaken the hearing-loss zone by blasting it with frequencies in that range?
      Not too far off from folks w/o reactive T being able to rectify using hearing aids I suppose..
      Pretty scary for folks with particularly reactive T like mine. dagnabbit!

      Oh yeah, reactive T would be bad news I would think! :(

      Hi

      So I was playing around with the tone generator (http://www.szynalski.com/tone-generator/) and I found that as I pressed play and moved the scale up and down, my tinnitus in both ears would quieten at a certain point.

      So I nailed it to when it did, and my left ear turns off (like a mute button) at around 800-1000HZ, and my right ears stops around 1200-1500HZ. I'm not certain that this is the sound at which they ring in my ears, it's just the tone it stops at.

      Anyway, so what I then did was, I started at 1500HZ, and quickly scrolled down to 850HZ, then stopped. The sound in my sear was immediately quieter, like half of what it was. It stayed like that for some time. It did return later but I feel as if this is me retraining my brain or ears to get used to that frequency again.

      Adding to this, sometimes when I do a hearing range test and move the tone from one end to the other, it also gives me peace very briefly, not for as long as my technique above.

      Is this just residual inhibition? I thought that involved a longer process.

      Cheers

      No.

      I think you are describing classical residual inhibition.
