White Noise Generator

White or other colored noises are an effective way to mask and treat tinnitus, a very common problem that normally occurs in individuals with hearing loss, but can also be triggered by stress and anxiety. Although generic white noise works just fine to mask tinnitus, a more "pleasing" non- or off-white noise can further help by addressing and soothing the psychological aspects of tinnitus.

Use a tinnitus matching tone generator or tinnitus frequency finder to figure out your exact tinnitus frequency. Also check out other ways to acoustically treat tinnitus that may work better than white noise below.

EQ Fluctuations

Loading program...

Background Additions:


First, click PLAY and manually adjust the equalizer sliders to a noise setting that is most pleasing to your ear. Alternatively, you can click on standard different sound-colored presets. By adding background resonances (sea, wind, and/or forest), sound depth can be added to the noise giving the sense of being in a wide open environment rather than inside an enclosed room.

Next, you can optionally have the computer fluctuate the equalizer settings to add variation to the noise by adjusting the speed and amplitude sliders.

Finally, all your custom noise settings can be saved as a link via the SAVE SETTINGS button. The settings will be copied to the clipboard. By pasting, you can share this custom unique link as a bookmark or share with others.

If the program seems to stop working properly after making multiple changes to the settings, playing/stopping frequently... Just refresh the webpage.

You can use our tinnitus matching tool to replicate the tinnitus you hear. We also have a matching tool for those who hear a more pulsatile or clicking tinnitus.

Tinnitus Treatment

Did you know that there are other sound strategies that may work better than white noise to help with tinnitus? Keep in mind that not all strategies work for everyone. Here are a few different types of tinnitus treatments that may help.

Notched Audio: This tinnitus treatment strategy utilizes white noise... BUT, the tinnitus frequency is completely absent or "notched" out. Theory goes that if you listen to this "notched" white noise, eventually, when you turn off the white noise, it tricks the brain to also turning off the tinnitus as well.

Acoustic CR Neuromodulation: Unlike white noise which is a continuous sound, this strategy uses a series of mathematically determined tones that play both above and below the tinnitus frequency followed by pauses. Researchers have determined that by playing these tones that dance around the tinnitus frequency, over time, the tinnitus will fade away.
