Description

Whist is designed to help tinnitus sufferers find and create the sounds that work best to mask or suppress their tinnitus. Use Whist at your convenience to find the sounds that provide the most tinnitus relief for you. When you find the best therapeutic sounds, you can save them to provide immediate access to tinnitus relief when you need it most. Based on clinical research on sound therapy, Whist provides a flexible and easy-to-use interface for masking and residual inhibition of tinnitus. Each of Whist’s controls adjusts an essential and easily-understood characteristic of the sound. By following the simple instructions that are provided, you will be able to match the pitch, noisiness and loudness of your tinnitus to find the best sound for your unique tinnitus relief. With its flexible controls, Whist can provide any of the types of sounds produced by custom masking devices, at a small fraction of the cost. With nearly thirty years of experience in hearing science research and development, Sensimetrics creates products to support and protect healthy hearing. "Whist is very helpful to me when I experience tinnitus. Prior to Whist, I would have to find noisy places to work in so that the ringing in my ear wouldn’t bother or distract me. Now, I can stay in the comfort of my room and let Whist generate sounds that relieve my tinnitus. Whist’s sounds are completely customizable – I get to create ones that both mask my tinnitus and bother me less than the ringing in my ear. I would highly recommend Whist to anyone bothered by their tinnitus and looking for relief.” Laura D., Age 20, Tinnitus Sufferer Whist Support: tech-support@sens.com Whist on the Web: sens.com/whist Whist on Facebook: facebook.com/whisttinnitus

  • Is helpful for relief

    Ive found this app to be helpful for training me to ignore my tinnitus. I find fine tuning of the noise and frequency to be difficult- the addition of bump buttons for finer tuning would be helpful.
  • Who cares if it works?

    I just tried it and I felt that it kinda worked at balancing it out. But regardless, some people are giving out a free app to attempt to fix this and It works nice. Its really hard to book doctors for tinnitus these days let alone find a workable treatment. Tinnitus is an effed up thing with alotta unknowns, but atleast this is a big step in the right direction. Screw the idiot reviews, try this.
  • Add Ability to Manually Set Frequency

    Let's you fine tune and match your tinnitus sound (pitch and intensity) on the free app. Worked for me, so I paid the $1.99 to save my settings in the full app. No-brainier.
  • Useful but can use some more options

    I use this app whenever I have trouble sleeping due to my tinnitus. I feel if they added my suggestions to the app it would also help me at other times as well. But I'll take what I can get, and this is the best I've found.
  • Wow

    First use, about 1700 seconds, felt good to drown out tinnitus with matching tone, relief for 10 minutes after was great, if only for ten minutes, will keep using to see if improvement continues
  • Very useful. Would like to see an improvement.

    This tool is useful to document my tinnitus using measurable statistics. I have Meniere's syndrome and my tinnitus comes and goes. By documenting (and saving) the details with this app, I can communicate with my doctor easier and show him how my symptoms change over time. Also, I can save the setting and give the headphones to my wife so she can experience what I am going through. I have only one request for improvement. The slider bars are very sensitive and it is hard to make small adjustments. I would like to see a button next to each slider that moves one increment. That would make it much easier.
  • Does nothing to help

    I thought this app was to help control and rid my ringing in the ears. All it did was mimic the sound. Not sure why the Doc recommended to try it.
