Thread: Tinnitus sound cancellation
picon face BY : Brandon, Tom email (remove spam text)

People note that external sounds help their Tinnitus. This is as you'd
expect. The brain is very good at blocking out background noise. I'd like to
know if people have found headphones (with a non-binaural source) to be
innefective at removing the Tinnitus? Typically the brain uses positioning
to block out background noise. This is known as "The Cocktail Party Effect".
At a Cocktail party it is relatively easy to follow one conversation and
ignore all others. Yet, if you take a mono recording of the party, the
seperate voices become a meaningless mess because the brain can't position
the voices. I wonder if positioning is playing a role in tinitus
