Hi,

Have developed worsening Hyperacusis over the past 6 months.  Are there pink noise files available on YouTube or iTunes that are recommended?  I have been to an ENT and Audiologist, neither seemed interested in helping me out.  In fact the ENT basically said "just take a vacation and you'll forget about it!"  Opposite of helpful.  I'm looking to do retraining therapy with ear buds and my phone.  Any recommended pink noise files out there?  Found some on YouTube, but have to keep my phone active the whole time and am looking for alternatives.

I've actually done that last year, and I thought it worked, but I couldn't really tell a difference. It's probably cause I hadn't committed to the pink noise long term.

Anyways, I'm pretty sure Dan is going to comment on this and he will say it's better to use the pink noise files they have for us, but I would like to hear what other people say if they didn't buy the pink noise files from the network. It'll be interesting.

Get well! We got this!

Unlike YouTube video/audio the network pink noise was developed by sound engineers in an analog unfiltered WAV. format which starts out softly so the individual with decreased sound tolerance can easily adjust the volume to a level that is comfortable to them.  I have never taken the position of promoting it but merely making it available to individuals who for whatever reason either cannot or will not meet with a qualified clinician to properly diagnose, treat and provide ongoing counseling using TRT.  Some, in this day of costly healthcare cannot afford TRT and have few options.  Some seek the path of self care.  I am not here to judge or to suggest one sound track is better than another.  The network is here to help pure and simple.

Thanks Dan.  So glad to have found this resource.  I have seen an audiologist and an ENT.  The audiologist found that I'm not losing hearing, so that is good.  However, when I asked both of them about TRT, neither of them seemed too keen on it.  The ENT actually said I should just take a vacation and I would forget about it.  Not helpful.
