The purpose of this study is to determine whether a new device delivering a sound-based intervention (termed acoustic coordinated reset neuromodulation) has significant clinical benefit for people with intrusive tinnitus. It is hypothesised that the particular pattern of sound stimulation delivered by the device acts to break up patterns of synchronous nerve firing in the brain that may be responsible for the sensation of tinnitus. We will also measure brain activity in a subset of participants to determine if the intervention results in changes in brainwave activity.
