What is Frequency Targeting?

Frequency targeting is a feature that allows you to select one specific frequency range that you want to strengthen for each ear. AudioCardio allows you to target 1000 Hz, 2000 Hz, 4000 Hz, 8000 Hz, and 12000 Hz ranges.

How is Frequency Targeting Different from the (Standard or Default) Sound Therapy?

Our standard Sound Therapy works by automatically targeting your weakest frequency for each ear. Your weakest frequency is the frequency with the highest dBr value that you have set during your hearing assessment for each ear.

Frequency Targeting allows you to freely choose any specific frequency range you would like to target and strengthen.

The underlying technology is the same. The only difference is that the Frequency Targeting feature lets you choose which frequencies to target, whereas the standard Sound Therapy automatically selects the frequencies for you.

Why Should You Use Frequency Targeting?

Frequency Targeting is great if you have a specific frequency range in mind that you’d like to target and strengthen.

If you ever feel that you have plateaued or are no longer progressing in a particular frequency range, it gives you the flexibility to try and strengthen other frequencies.

Frequency Targeting is an advanced feature and will become available after you’ve completed 21 sound therapy sessions.
