      I sometimes use an app called Whist while I sleep. It has helped sometimes and sometimes it hasn't. Though my tinnitus is multiple frequencies and fluctuates between them which makes every day different.

      It seems like a good idea, except for this part, "Each night, patients fixed the sound stimulation intensity at the tinnitus masking level ..."

      No way in the world would I subject my ear(s) to a volume sufficient to mask my tinnitus. Also, it would not be possible to recreate the noises in my head because they are not the same from day to day. However, I do believe that retraining the brain while sleeping is a viable option for those with tinnitus at a 3 to 4 level or below if they have the same persistent sound. It's certainly worth a try. I listened to audio notch therapy while sleeping and it helped somewhat. Unfortunately, after a couple of months I plateaued and just couldn't stand to listen to it anymore.
