What Is Tinnitus?

Tinnitus (“TIN-a-tus” “Tin-EYE-tus”) is a medical term used to describe a symptom that is depicted as the sensation of hearing sound when none is present.

The sounds heard by someone suffering from tinnitus can vary from the common “ringing in the ears” to being described as:

  • Hissing like sounds
  • Buzzing
  • Sizzling
  • Whistling
  • Roaring
  • Sharp chirping sounds

In very rare cases some people hear what they describe as “indecipherable human voices”.

Tinnitus can appear to affect one or both ears.

If you have symptoms associated with tinnitus such as ringing or buzzing sounds that have no apparent source, seek the help of a hearing professional experienced in tinnitus treatment. According to recent research, early treatment may be an important factor in success

The video below simulates the sounds heard by several tinnitus sufferers.
