Tinnitus notch therapy

Hi ,I have purchased sleep buds ,they function as expected and mask sounds effectively .I would like to apply a notch filter ,about 9KHz for my tinnitus ,to the sounds .From a technical perspective ,this should be relatively simple as it will not impact on the approach that Bose has taken with regard to storing the sound on the buds .Research has found that there may be some benefit to sound notching for tinnitus suffers and I would like to apply this to my sleep buds .

Re: Tinnitus notch therapy

An interesting request that I'm sure will be on interest to many owners with tinnitus.

 

Some requirements for the implementation that would help:

  • Include in the app the ability for someone to determine what frequency notch they need and how wide is.
  • Include the ability to set different settings for the left and right ear.
  • Include the ability to set different volumes for each ear (I've seen this requested a few times here as this will also benefit people with differential hearing loss)

Re: Tinnitus notch therapy

This will come as bad news for tinnitus suffers, but the hardware in the sleepbuds can not do what you want it to.

The audio stored on the buds is sampled at 8kHz, this means that it can not reproduce any sounds higher than 4kHz.

Re: Tinnitus notch therapy

This sounds like a good reason for this to be added to the product backlog for the next version of sleepbuds which addresses:

  • Charging issues to only 48% (and other similar numbers)
  • Noise from it moving against a pillow
  • Independent volume controls to assist with hearing loss
  • Notch sound therapy for tinnitus (a lot of people will love this)

 

What else?
