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:

  1. Ringing: Described as a high-pitched ringing similar to the sound of a bell, a telephone, or a persistent tone.
  2. Buzzing: Often likened to the sound of bees buzzing or the humming of an electrical appliance.
  3. Whistling: Comparable to the sound of a high-pitched whistle or a tea kettle boiling.
  4. Roaring: Some individuals perceive tinnitus as a roaring, similar to the sound of ocean waves or a waterfall.
  5. Clicking: Described as rhythmic or irregular clicking sounds, similar to the ticking of a clock.
  6. Hissing: Like the sound of air escaping from a tire or the hissing of steam.
  7. Humming: Some may hear a low-frequency hum, akin to the sound of a distant engine or machinery.
  8. 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.
