How Can I Tinnitus Match to a Known Stimulus with Inventis Piano Plus?

Question

Some tinnitus sound therapies require matching the tinnitus to a known stimulus. How can I do this with an audiometer?

Answer

Most conventional audiometers only have a frequency range up to 8000 Hz in half-octave intervals. If the tinnitus is below 8000 Hz, one will be able to estimate the pitch of the tinnitus to the accuracy of a half octave. However, this may not be sensitive enough for some sound therapy protocols. With the Inventis Piano Plus using the HDA transducers, the examiner can obtain a more accurate measurement of the pitch of the tinnitus using the multi-frequency option. The Multi-frequency option gives one the flexibility of presenting stimuli up to 24 points per octave. Also, with this transducer, the stimuli can be presented as high as 20,000 Hz.
