Me too.  Not noticeable during the day with even day to day noises around me.  Probably why I enjoy headphones (not too loud), because it drowns out my low level tinnitus!  Doesn't seem to get any worse with headphone or IEM use.

I think I'm just start to have some tinnitus. I don't notice it at all unless it dead silent then I can hear it but its at a pretty low level. I've always slept with a fan on so it doesn't bother me any at night. I really hope it doesn't get worse but I do listen to my headphone at what I think is quite a loud level which wont help but darn it I can't help myself.

Keep what you have and watch that volume control.  :bigsmile_face:

Tinnitus sucks.

 

I've had it for a couple decades now.

Unfortunately with age it's gotten more sensitive to high frequencies.

My Beyerdynamic T1 has become almost immposiible to listen to because of this.

Too bad because I really enjoy them.

The hd600 (and especially the hd650) are much less irritating.

 

Never gotten used to it either.

It still annoys me.

Listening louder does hide it, for a while.

Tends to make it worse after listening though.

I don't notice my tinnitus during the day, but at bed time I have to use a white noise generator to mask it so I can fall asleep.

Woah. That's nuts. Through headphones or speakers? How loud?

What does your audiogram look like?

It's been about 10 years since I've seen it and can't really say anymore.

I can say I'm overdue to see an audiologist though.:(

I use radio static.

Yes, I think so. Tinnitus is closely associated with hearing loss and your hyperacusis is another symptom that often accompanies tinnitus. Hearing aids can help with hearing loss, tinnitus, and hyperacusis.

Of late I've been underinsured so no audiologist in my recent past.

Recently got new insurance and a new doctor.

First visit next week.

I'll be addressing several neglected health issues including this.

 

We'll see.

 

Way too much loud music growing up....

post #7092 of 8499

I can't remember the last time I saw an audiologist, probably in high school which was the late 90's (man I'm getting old). Since I have insurance I'm guessing I should probably see one. Over all I can hear good its just that faint low buzz I hear when its dead silent.

post #7093 of 8499
I think a lot of people hear a faint buzz when it's silent and they focus in on it. Because our passion is music and audio equipment we tend to notice and obsess about it more. My better half says she gets it when I ask her to 'listen' for it and she has never been into loud music/ gigs/ raves like I was growing up. I personally listened to music way to loud for a long time because my life was dance music and clubs for years (plus I was a dj and my left ear took a battering) Now if I think about it I can hear a buzz/hiss when it's silent (which is worse when I'm unwell ) but I don't usually notice it. Not sure if it's tinnitus or just normal?

I have a little bluetooth speaker I use with my Android phone.

 

Edit: by white noise generator, I meant an app that I use on my phone, not a dedicated device. I don't have the volume set very loud.

Tinnitus is by no means solely due to hearing loss. Jaw / mastication problems, high blood pressure, diabetes, stress and earwax blockage are all possible causes, among many others.

 

I suffer from it, at the tender age of 36, and my hearing is fine (an audiogram confirmed it).

 

Don't rush to the audiologist if you're worried, see your usual doctor first.
