We have developed a novel tinnitus treatment approach ("tailor-made notched music training"). An evaluation study demonstrated the effectiveness of this approach for tinnitus patients exhibiting a specific tinnitus profile.The study participants were patients:
- with chronic tinnitus (> 12 months)
- with tonal tinnitus (i.e. tinnitus sounded peep- or whistle-like)
- without severe hearing loss (< 35 dB)
- of rather young age (approximately 40 years on average).
