Hello Dr. Nagler,

In researching tinnitus therapies today, I came across a therapy I hadn't heard of previously called "Desyncra".  Do you have any feedback regarding this therapy and if it can be effective?

Best Wishes,

Dr. Nagler

Hi Duncan -

I do not think there are enough reliable and verifiable data out there on Acoustic CR Neuromodulation (or Desyncra) to come to a conclusion one way or another. To be blunt, it sounds to me more like a gimmick - a very expensive one at that - but who knows? The thing that bothers me the most, I guess, is that it would be very easy to for the people promoting this product to arrange for a properly blinded independent controlled study. But to the best of my knowledge they haven't done that.

Hope this helps -
