      Hi Dr. Hubbard,

      I was wondering if you have have had any experience/success in treating people with low pitched tinnitus, and helping them get used to the sound. I have gotten used to the high pitched ringing on my own, but a new low pitch is absolutely ruining me. Please let me know, thanks.

      I've worked with about 200 people, about 2/3 have improved (that's in line with the CBT studies). Those who improved haven't always specified the pitch so it's hard for me to determine who might have had low pitch who was helped by CBT. I don't see why CBT wouldn't help with low pitch tinnitus. CBT is designed to help people adapt to all kinds of tinnitus - volume, pattern, pitch.

      Hope that helps!
