Examples of Tinnitus signals
It can vary greatly from person to person. You may hear phantom sounds in one ear, in both ears, or in your head. The phantom sound can ring, buzz, rumble, whistle, hum, click, hiss or howl. The noise can be soft or loud and can be low or high pitched. It may come and go or be present all the time.
Here are some examples of how people may describe what tinnitus sounds like:
- Ringing: Described as a high-pitched ringing similar to the sound of a bell, a telephone, or a persistent tone.
- Buzzing: Often likened to the sound of bees buzzing or the humming of an electrical appliance.
- Whistling: Comparable to the sound of a high-pitched whistle or a tea kettle boiling.
- Roaring: Some individuals perceive tinnitus as a roaring, similar to the sound of ocean waves or a waterfall.
- Clicking: Described as rhythmic or irregular clicking sounds, similar to the ticking of a clock.
- Hissing: Like the sound of air escaping from a tire or the hissing of steam.
- Humming: Some may hear a low-frequency hum, akin to the sound of a distant engine or machinery.
- Pulsing: Tinnitus can also mimic a rhythmic pulse or heartbeat sound.
These descriptions are subjective and can vary greatly among individuals. The perceived signal may also change in intensity, pitch, or type for the same person over time. It's important to note that these descriptions serve as attempts to convey the sensations experienced, as tinnitus perception is highly personal and may not precisely match these comparisons.
- Tinnitus can have different frequencies depending on the person and the signal. The frequency is how high or low the tone is. Frequency is measured in hertz (Hz), which is the number of oscillations per second. The higher the frequency, the higher the tone.
- There are different ways to determine your frequency, but a common way is to compare it to an external sound that has a known frequency. This is called tinnitus matching and can be done using an audiometer or an online tool. The aim is to find the sound that best matches the fundamental tone that you hear most of the time.
- The frequency can vary from a few hundred Hz to over 20,000 Hz. Most people have tinnitus in the high frequency range, between 3000 and 8000 Hz4. However, some people have tinnitus in the low frequency range, below 1000 Hz4. It is also possible to have several tones with different frequencies at the same time.
