      Looks extremely scanmy, but they have some scientific evidence to back up their claims - now the validity of those claims is well ... a little on the unreliable side.
      I wouldn't go for it, the site seems very messy, clear indication that something's fishy.

      I know that Mutebutton was about to shut down about a year ago, now I believe it's up and running again, don't know the intrigue that took place in-between. I think there is a dedicated thread on Treatments where you can look it up. I think it's still in the clinical trials phase, maybe so you can sign up.

      The other contraption, never heard of it and can't be bothered to look it up. Just by its name I can tell it's an acoustic stimulation turd kind of thing. There are free versions of these of the Internet.

      This is the opening line to explain how it works.

      In order to understand how ti-ex works, it is important to realize that the hair cells in the inner ear can regenerate.

      Err, not that I am aware of. Unless you are a chicken. Maybe it is incorrect use of language / bad translation - once these hairs are gone they are gone according to medical science as we know it.

      Right, it could be a language issue indeed... OR the fact that somehow they think science as we know it has it wrong (in their defense, there are legit labs that work on regenerating hair cells), and they have the breakthrough.
      Yes, I know the odds of that... :unsure:

      Absolutely. They have just negated the mission of the Hearing Health Foundation if the text is correct. It seems to have been a device since around 2000 according to the site, previously called Tinnex, so I'm not sure they have.

      It is not a lie that hearing cells can regenerate.

      Hi Michael. I have used Tiex for a number of years and have had good results with it and still use it. Results will vary between people. My tinnitus ranges from:Silent, mild, moderate and very severe. It can be bought out right or rented as it may not work for some people. In my opinion it isn't a scam as it helpes me but won't help everyone.
      All the best
      Michael

      Hi Michael!
      Thank you for your useful advice!

      Do you use it on 3 Hz or on 6 Hz?

      6Hz is recommended Michael. I have never used the 3hz setting. As it says on the website, if Tiex is going to work for a patient, then they will see results withing 4 months. Either curing the tinnitus or reducing it or having no effect at all. For this reason Tiex can be rented and then returned. I was in a very desperate place inn 2011 by tinnitus was excuricating. I saw the Tiex website by chance and was prepared to try anything. I bought it out right. However, after 4 months I noticed no improvement but I persisted. After 6 months I began noticing improvment. Please be aware, I have very severe tinnitus for which I was medically retired from my job because of it. I tried Tiex after I had a second course of TRT that lasted 2 years. However, the treatment wasn't as effective as th first time. I've had tinnitus 20 years.
      I used Tiex this evening and only when my tinnitus is particularly bothersome. For the first 2 years I used it every day.
      Michael

      PS: I had no problems with my order and the inventer is very helpful and cured hui tinnitus with the device. Please remember results will vary between people.

      It would be nice to get a better understanding of the "science" behind the device. The website claims something about electromagnetic energy, but I see some kind of headphones in the product, so I wonder if it's sound therapy instead.

      Taking a look at Tiex one can assume it uses normal headphones to deliver the treatment of electromagnectic engergy. However, they are not normal headphones. Plug them into an audio device and you'll hear no SOUND!. This is a unqiue therapy unit in my opinon and how it works didn't really interest me and still doesn't, for all I cared about was getting some relief from the cacophony of noise that I lived with daily. I've travelled a long hard road that took to me to the depths of despair at times but I came through the other side. A combination of things helped me. Having a very good ENT consultant and Hearing Therapist helped me immensely.

      TRT wasn't as successful the second time around although there was some improvement after having the treatment for two years with counselling. Having a positive attitude also helped and wearing white noise generators which I still do on occasions. Using a sound machine at night for sound enrichment every night and still do. TIEX was the last jigsaw of the puzzle that put everything together. I still take clonazapam now and again when my tinnitus reaches very severe levels and this is sustained for more than a few days. I can no longer use a computer at near field, as I'm affected by EMF that it emits. I am not affected by other forums of EMF however. All I know is using a computer in the convential way my tinnitus will become unbareable withing two days. I've tried this many times and with different PCs and the results are the same. Therefore, my computer sits in another room and I use a wireless keyboard, mouse and external monitor.

      I appreciate no two people will experience tinnitus the same. What affects one person will be totally differentt for another. We all have to search and take time to find our own way of dealing with this condition. Nothing is off limits. I was secptical of TIEX but this is no-longer the case as it heleped me.

      Regarding headphone use. Some people with tinnitus continue to use headphone with no adverse effect, while others do. Many people that work in call centres and wear headset develop tinnitus. As I said, we are a different so I advise people to try and find what works for them to manage their particular form of tinnitus.

      I wish you well
      Michael

      PS: When using TIEX no sound is emitted from the headphone unit.

      I have read a few posts in this forum from people wanting to know if anyone has tried the TIEX Therapy device. Whilst I believe there are plenty of scam artists and products out there that claim to cure tinnitus or suppress its symptoms, I don’t believe this is one of them. I have been reluctant to mention this product for some time because I don’t want to be badgered by people that have tried it after parting with their money and getting no relief from their tinnitus.


      It is for this reason the product can be rented for a period of time and returned for a refund if a person feels there’s no benefit. Please be aware, Tiex will not work for everyone and this is explained on the inventers website. Trials were carried out by people that have tinnitus and the results are also on the website. I’m not connected with the company in any way. I’m just someone that’s had tinnitus for twenty years and know the depths this debilitating condition can take one to when it is severe. Tinnitus comes in many forms and no two people experience is the same.

      It is just one of the reasons why this condition can be so difficult to understand even by those that have it mild or moderate and are able to live their life quite content having no idea how crippling it can be for some people. I hope the post below can be of some help to anyone that wants to try TIEX.

      My tinnitus ranges from: silent, mild, moderate and very severe. No two days are the same for me. I was medically retired from my job many years ago because of it and in 2008 it got increasingly worse which resulted in returning to ENT for the second time and put on a course of TRT that last two years.

      Regarding headphone use. Some people with tinnitus continue to use headphones with no adverse effects, while others do. Some people that work in call centres and wear a headset develop tinnitus whilst others don't. My personal opinion on headphones use is this: Anyone that has intrusive tinnitus shouldn't listen to music through them even at low volume. However, we are a different, so I advise people to try and find what works for them to manage their particular form of tinnitus.

      I wish you well
