Hello,

Today, I tried to play some pink noise at low volume. After two hours, my ears were irritated, and a slight burning pain occurred, which lasted for the rest of the day. Now, it has calmed down.
Tomorrow, I would like to try it again. Should I lower the volume, and try another 2 hours? Or should I keep the same volume, and limit it to one hour, and repeat this 1 hour at the evening?
Should I avoid anyway the burning sensation in my ears?

Thx a lot for your comments and help.

pvdm -

Are you using the pink noise CD available from this site?

Have you been diagnosed with hyperacusis by a doctor?

You should never feel any pain, burning or discomfort when using broadband noise.  I would lower the volume and use it for much less time and see how it goes.  If you do not experience pain, burning or discomfort, slowly increase the time you are using it.  Over time, slowly increase the volume provided it causes no pain or discomfort.

Ok. Thanks Rob.

I had indeed a few days of more pain, which seems to be reducing again now to the level it was before.
This is not the pink noise Cd from the site. I generated with AVS software this  sound.
I will see for the first time a TRT-specialist in two weeks time from now, but I am suffering since 2009 from T and H. I will try it again as you say, for much less time.

Kind regards,

pvdm

Hi pvdm,

When you have really problems with the pink sound try some nature sounds
like :

https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/babbling-brook-nature-sounds/id262243077

This most people can tolerate better...

Greetings,
