      You are throwing money at something that implies research isn't as important as habituation.

      I don't think anyone cares about what throwing their money at implies if they're suffering and looking for a treatment in the present rather than future-tense.

      I'd rather suffer knowing help is on the way and I know many people who agree with me.

      Is anyone else going to leave a comment under their twitter post letting them know that Levo is definitely not as effective as they make it seem?

      Hi everyone, this is my first post here. I’ve had tinnitus for the past 9 months. The type I have is the high pitched cricket sounding kind that reacts to environments. It raises especially when I’m exposed to white noise type sounds (like driving a car, fan, etc.)

      I thought I was starting to get habituated but for some reason it started bugging me again about two weeks ago. Not sure if it got louder or I’m just paying more attention to it for some reason.

      I went to an audiologist and she suggested a TRT treatment called Levo. It’s pretty expensive at $6000 USD. Would be great to hear your thoughts.

      Sounds like a scam...

      Do your research on Lenire, and University of Michigan.

      I’ve been trying to get info on Levo as well. But a lot of people who are getting it are veterans with tinnitus. The VA pays for it and that’s more than likely why it’s so expensive. My audiologist quoted me $6000. Just seems very high for an iPod and ear buds. Also, if you need to reprogram the pitch it could be $250.

      Neuromod's Lenire device sounds like a better option so far, and there are new treatments in the works that should be coming out within the next few years...

      Hello,

      Just curious, has anyone tried Levo System therapy to help the brain habituate to your tinnitus?

      Please see my previous comments regarding Desyncra, which is a similar sound "therapy."
      It was as useless as shining a flashlight would have been, and cost $5,269.00
      Others on this forum have reported similar results with Levo.

      I would recommend you read this whole thread from the beginning. From the research I’ve done, I haven’t found anyone who benefited from it. Also, from what I gather it used to cost $2500 but since Levo got into a contract with the VA, the cost more than doubled.
      US audiologists will claim it works because it is FDA approved, but keep in mind, all the FDA does is to make sure it is safe, not that it actually works.

      I would look into Lenire instead, however if you decide to give Levo a shot, please come back and post your experience with it.
