      Maybe loud music. Not sure.
      Well this is another sound therapy, it's quite easy to setup. Why are they only using classical music ? I don't really get it, it's going to be hard for them because of the typical skeptical tinnitus patient for sure, as said in the article

      their website looks like bull by the way...

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      "FDA Clearance" seems somewhat misleading to me, even if, yes, technically correct. To the average consumer's ear this might sound like the treatment has been subject to the same kind of rigorous process as pharmaceuticals are, before getting approval.

      That's far from the case. For those interested, see below.

      Basically it's just another sound therapy device claiming to provide temporary relief, which the company themselves state:

      "The device, Sound Options Tinnitus Treatment, version SO 2.0, is for the temporary relief of tinnitus symptoms".

      They also mention SoundCure as a substantially equivalent device.

      So here we may have yet another more or less useless thing, possibly nothing more but an expensive music player (in my opinion). I hope I'm proven wrong.

      We have reviewed your Section 510(k) premarket notification of intent to market the device
      referenced above and have determined the device is substantially equivalent (for the indications
      for use stated in the enclosure) to legally marketed predicate devices marketed in interstate
      commerce prior to May 28, 1976, the enactment date of the Medical Device Amendments, or to
      devices that have been reclassified in accordance with the provisions of the Federal Food, Drug,
      and Cosmetic Act (Act) that do not require approval of a premarket approval application (PMA).​

      I suppose anything is better then nothing. Worth a try what have we got to lose our tinnitus I hope.

      loud concert for 1 hour
      I wonder how much it costs? I looked into the Levo System awhile back and it was priced over $5,000, not something I can afford, and not covered by insurance.
