Tinnitus therapy lite

This app is not as popular as others and you may not have heard of it. However, it does have some nice features that you might like for its commonness. Everything about it is very straightforward, from the interface to the capabilities.

In short, as we understood this app only serves to relax and take away the noise in your ears. Using the many kinds of audio files that exist in the application you not only relax but can also meditate on these sounds.

There is no function of time reporting or scheduling your actions, and we think this is one of the drawbacks of the app.

In the sound library, the name of each sound is written, and clicking on it will take you to a description of the sound and what you can feel while using it. In short, the details of the sound.

The variety of sounds is relatively small since the library has only five sounds, among which are a white noise sound, an ambient sound, and three nature sounds. That’s all the features of the app.

If you want to unlock more options, you can choose a paid Pro plan. In the premium version of the app, you will get access to a more extensive library of sounds, as well as to a ten-band graphic equalizer to customize sound frequency for your personal needs and preferences.

As we have already said that the application is complex, so at the beginning of working with it you will be instructed on how to work with it and use it. Then you will get a screen with a player and all you have to do is to select the sound.

Before you start working, it would be best to make personal settings and the application convenient for yourself. If you still don’t understand how to cope with them, you can find instructions on how to use the application in the side menu.

Tinnitus relief

A pretty cool app where not only banal sounds are collected, such as the sound of rain or wind, rustling leaves, and so on, but also a lot of other interesting and rather strange sounds. The downside of the app is that the available audio files in the app can only be downloaded via a Wi-Fi connection.

On the other hand, you can download the sounds and use the app with no Internet connection.

The application has not only a collection of sounds but also there are visual videos that can be turned on while listening to the audio files of the application. As in other applications, you can also create mixes of several sounds here.

Like many of apps of the type, this one has a sleep timer, so the sound will turn off automatically when the time is up.

In general, the application is not bad, and the functions do not lag behind other applications, but still, we do not think that this is a pretty effective application for tinnitus. Rather, the application can be used for fun, but also for listening to the usual sounds of nature.

And the last app on the list is MyNoise. The application can be used for several purposes, ranging from relaxation to lulling babies to sleep. In it you can find a list of different sounds and music, choosing one of them you can add them to your favorite list.

As well as a distinctive feature of the application is that you can choose not only the sound but also the situation. That is, if you choose the sound of rain, you can also choose a location, a scene, and so on.

The list of your favorite sounds can be edited and adjusted so that they are played at a certain designated time. To do this, you will need to set the time in advance and make something like a note.

The application is not bad, but the interface of the application is quite inconvenient, and some bugs may occur, for example, sounds are not played and the like.
