(no one else in my family can hear the cheap CRT making the HF noise o_O)

god I hate that high noise... i can hear it if the tv's muted, from upstairs if the house is quiet. Very annoying.

deafness comes to mind

sometimes when i'm lying in bed, i can hear a sort of ringing. the more i concentrate on it, the louder it gets. it gets to the point where it is defeaning almost (and kind of freaky), but only when i'm concentrating on the sound. is this tinnitus or a figment of my imagination?

That's what I was experiencing too. However, I couldn't hear it while lying in bed, as I had to stand up to hear it. It was the exact same way...concentrate on the sound or whatever and it just got louder, but not to the point where it was "deafening". I wasn't sure if it was coming from my head or my ears.

Silence does sound quiet, calm and peaceful.
By silence I mean less than 20 dB background noise, and that's rare.
My civilization emits usually more than that even at night, and even nature is noisy most of the time.
You can enforce total silence by utilizing earplugs, but then you hear your body's noises (blood flowing, fluids in your stomach and guts).
The only way to perceive total silence is masking body noises by pink noise at very low level through IEMs .

I can hear it sometimes but not always. Usually in bed at night when it's dead silent.

I can hear some barely noticeable ringing when it's dead quiet late at night, or when using earplugs. I actually listen at very low volume levels, and I think this effect comes from childhood ear infections (which cost me some very high frequency sensitivity).

It is obvious and somewhat bothersome when I am in a silent atmosphere, but it was there before I began my trek down the headphone road, so it doesn't bother me all that much.

I voted: "Tinnitus is present in quiet environment but isn't distracting"

I can hear a ringing in both ears when in a silent room, and my right ear is much worse than my left. My right ear has both a high piched and a low piched ring, probably due to my high school days with a loud car subwoofer mounted in my trunk at the right side..

I also have had pain and beeding from my ears in the past year, but haven't had any problems for the past 4 months. My ears seem to be liking the RS-1 so far, which is a very good thing

#4. I've had tinnitus as far back as I can remember (when I was really little, I often conentrated on it to try to calm down and sleep during insomnia bouts(sp)), and it is very high pitched (I haven't tried to pin it down, but higher-pitched than a TV set's whine). It's only easy to hear, or loud, when I am very tired.

lol

anyhow,

I hear it when its dead silent, like when Im really tired. Ive had it since I was a child. The thing is as soon as something in the environment disrupts the silence the high pitch is gone. It gets really loud sometimes when its super quite, I think it probably has something to do with my blood pressure.

I don't know about the tinny, but I'm sure I have the itis

Seriously, I'm pretty sure I don't have tinnitus, and any time I have had extended ringing in my ears (dance club/concert volume ) it would usually only take 3 days max to go away. But admittedly I do listen to my headphones around 80-90 dB most of the time, when I feel like I need to rawk...

What would be interesting to know is how old are the sufferers. I noticed on an age poll, that many Head-fiers are quite young, so if tinnitus has started..... when you get to my age, it could be roaring!!!

21 years old, slight tinnitus. Like most people, I only really notice it when it's dead quiet and I'm tired. It bothers me enough that I like to have a fan or air purifier on to drown out the noise. I've also noticed that it's really bad when I'm drunk and trying to sleep. However, since I'm drunk, I usually just pass out w/o much trouble.

I've noticed the exact same thing. After a few beers (6+) it seems my Tinnitus gets worse, and stays that way until the alcohol is out of my system. This is one reason why I'm starting to drink less..
