Scientific Background of Notched Music Tinnitus Treatment

Various clinical studies indicate that Notched Music has the strong potential to at least reduce the individually perceived tinnitus loudness. The main idea behind this approach is to make use of the plasticity of the human brain's auditory cortex. Significant scientific contributions stem from Prof. C. Pantev, Dr. H. Teismann and Prof. H. Okamoto.

Listening to Notched Music is a long-term treatment. Usually it takes at least six month to achieve a significant reduction of tinnitus loudness.
