How Does Sound Relief Work?

Subjective tinnitus is a sign of damage somewhere in the auditory system – outer ear, middle ear, inner ear, or brain. It is a perceived phantom sound that has no appreciable source. Tinnitus often manifests itself as a ringing, buzzing, or chirping in the ears and is, in most cases, high frequency noise.

Sound therapy is a type of sensory training aimed at modifying the brain signals associated with tinnitus. Different types of sound therapies do this in slightly different ways – either by masking or covering the sounds or by eliminating the tinnitus for a period of time.

The aim of sound therapy is to decrease the activity of the parts of the auditory cortex (part of the brain that processes sound) that produce the signals that are interpreted as tinnitus. Decreasing the activity in the brain, decreases the levels of tinnitus perceived.


Sound Relief is a sound therapy. It uses low frequency sounds to achieve a therapeutic benefit for those who experience tinnitus. This is in contrast to many other sound therapies which aim to match the high frequencies of tinnitus. Sound Relief provides another option for those looking to try a non-invasive treatment at no initial cost.

We conducted a clinical trial of 300 people at the University of Edinburgh to examine the effectiveness of Sound Relief.

Over the course of our studies we found that around two-thirds of those with subjective tinnitus will receive a beneficial effect. Those who saw an improvement reported a 20% reduction in their tinnitus severity in the first month of usage – listening for 5 minutes a day on a daily basis.
