These could be great for Tinitus Sufferers, with a few small tweeks

Quick thanks for this product before i offer up a few sugestions.

I find these buds both charged to 100%,  Have no pops clicks or phantom pings (So Far),  also due to my monster ears i dotn get pillow rubbing - so its Thumbs up from me :¬)

 

Tweak 1:
..Request: Needs a volume per ear slider or a balance slider (like in the good old days).

..Reason: Due to the nature of Tinitus it can drasticaly change the percieved sound volume in either ear.

Tweak 2:
..Request: Needs More Generic Sounds like Pink Noise, Violet/Purple Noise etc.
..Reason: These generic sounds have been shown to mask and bring temporary relief from tinitus.
....: My Audiologist. that specialises in Tinitus has even supplied me with cds of these generic sounds and they work for me

Wild suggestion 3: allow the app to generate custom white/pink/purple/blue/brown noises that can be uploaded to the buds data for these would be miniscule and no percieved looping due to the nature of the sounds
apps like ... https://mynoise.net/noiseMachines.php

in particular the https://mynoise.net/NoiseMachines/whiteNoiseGenerator.php

 

Anyways thats my 2 cents :¬)

Hello @madusmacus !

 

Thanks for the feedback, and welcome to the community!

I have passed on your feedback to our response team. I'm in the same position as you and think that these could potentially be a great addition to the product, should our development team feel so inclined.

 

Have a nice day!

 

Warm Regards,

There are 50 millionTinitus Sufferers in the USA. There is a market if the proper sounds were available.

I agree with all the above for fellow Tinitus suffers.
Sadly I am loosing faith in the Sleepbuds.
Development seems to have stalled and the hardware is flawed. After the 48% charging issue I have had the magnet part company from the sleepbud for the second time.
Off to the service centre I go. This will be my 4th set of buds.
