Using the new Desyncra™ for Tinnitus system this science based therapy acts on the source of the tinnitus sounds within your brain. Available only at The Tinnitus Clinic in the UK, the treatment works over a number of months, aiming to sustainably reduce the loudness and annoyance of your tinnitus sounds. If you can hear the gentle tones, and have had tonal tinnitus for more than 4 months, then this treatment could be suitable for you. Request an Initial Assessment to find out if you are suitable.
Please note, we are not currently prescribing this therapy.

Learn about the Acoustic CR® Neuromodulation treatment
Acoustic CR® Neuromodulation offers sustained relief to you by making long lasting changes to the patterns of activity in your brain which produces the tinnitus.
Typically, patients experience changes to their tinnitus sound within a few weeks of starting therapy and as the therapy proceeds the distressing symptoms reduce, including the loudness and annoyance of the tinnitus.
The benefits last beyond the therapy period, with 7 out of 10 people getting significant relief from the worst of their symptoms. Studies on this treatment are available here. Read our patients’ experiences in their own words below.
Professor Jane Mellor explains why she chose Acoustic CR® Neuromodulation
The treatment is delivered using therapeutic tones sent through the Desyncra for Tinnitus device to the hearing part of the brain. The programme usually takes around 36 weeks.
The noninvasive, targeted tones are tailored to your exact tinnitus profile and are adjusted periodically throughout the therapy to ensure they remain optimised. Every appointment is important as we reprogramme the device to your changing tinnitus tone and provide support for associated symptoms such as sleeplessness and anxiety.
Your unique set of therapeutic tones from the Desyncra for Tinnitus device are set to be quiet but just audible. So you can carry on with everyday life while receiving the therapy in the background choosing a time when it is convenient for you.
Acoustic CR® Neuromodulation treatments are being carried out in all of The Tinnitus Clinics in the UK. Here are some of our patients who want to tell you their story.
“The tinnitus had a major effect on my mood and there were points when I thought this is my life; this is what it’s going to be like from now on. I didn’t share much about it with my family and kept much of it to myself to a large extent.”
“When I get up in the morning the tinnitus is in the background and I am rarely aware of it during the day. Before, I was constantly aware of the tinnitus. At this point, today, I would say my tinnitus is 80% better than it was.”
“After a terrible ear infection during a particularly stressful period of work, I woke up one morning with tinnitus in both ears. It was high-pitched, hissing and very distressing. Even when my ear infection was treated and cleared, the tinnitus remained.”
“I went to see my GP and explained that I couldn’t live with it, that I wanted to end it. He said he’d have to section me, which I didn’t want, but I knew I couldn’t live with the ringing. Then, my wife and my son found The Tinnitus Clinic on the internet.”
Twenty-five year old Nathan Bushay – a green grocer and market trader from High Wycombe - experienced debilitating tinnitus following a whiplash injury. Within days of starting the pioneering new treatment – called Acoustic CR® Neuromodulation – he noticed his tinnitus was less intrusive.
"There is a lot of quackery surrounding a condition such as tinnitus, but this treatment is scientifically validated and it was this that attracted me to it. The tinnitus is still there - but it’s less shrill, and I hope one day it will fade until it no longer bothers me."
"It started many years ago – probably about 30. It developed gradually but became more noticeable after a particularly stressful period in my life. I saw a Specialist about how to reduce the high-pitched noise and was told that I would have to learn to live with it. So that’s what I did. I just got on with it.”
"I experienced the most dynamic change within the first two weeks, followed by an ongoing progressive improvement in symptoms. I went from not being sure if I would sleep at night, to dropping off straight away. From being unsure if I'd have a good day, to having a succession of them.
It's hard to describe how much the condition changed, but it's gone from feeling like my head would split open, to being a very mild annoyance, like a scratch on your foot – and the relief has been sustained. It really seems to work and, at long last, I'm enjoying my life again!"
"I'm amazed to find that the treatment is working. Once the clinic had assessed my tinnitus, I was given the small clip-on device and earphones. I didn't need any further guidance; treatment was very easy and, as it was non-invasive, I had no concerns.
I first noticed a change after about ten days. Since then, there's been a noticeable change every couple of days as my tinnitus starts to disappear. My advice would be to give it a go! It seems to be working for me, so I'd strongly recommend it."
