What does tinnitus sound like?
Tinnitus can sound in lots of different ways but one of the most common is a whistling sound. Here is a common example.
- If you want to know what tinnitus sounds like, you can listen to an example at the link above. Keep in mind that these sounds are not exact representations of what everyone with tinnitus hears, but only approximate simulations. The sound differs from person to person and can even vary for the same person.
- 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 sound can be soft or loud and can be low or high pitched. It may come and go or be present all the time.
- Tinnitus can have different frequencies depending on the person and the sound. 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.
