Hey All, 

Im wondering if there is a actual difference in the quality of TRT Therapy between using a sound generator purchased through a physician (they are usually marked up substantially and thus very expensive), or just purchasing high quality noise, whether pink, brown, or white, and playing it through headphones (either earbuds or closed back headphones). In the latter case, I would upload the full spectrum uncompressed noise to dropbox, and play it from via the dropbox iPhone app, as to avoid any mp3 compression in iTunes. I cant imagine the quality of the noise generated from masking devices is much different then purchasing a CD (like the one available on this network).

I would still treat with the type of noise recommended by a physician. 

Any thoughts?
