FAQs

Q. What is tinnitus?

Tinnitus is a persistent sound heard in one or both ears when no actual external noise is present. Though, commonly referred to as “ringing in the ears,” tinnitus can be perceived in the form of different sounds including buzzing, hissing, whistling etc. Tinnitus is a common symptom of nearly all ear disorders, as well as some other medical problems.

Q. Can listening to loud music cause tinnitus?

Exposure to too much or too loud noise is one of the common causes of tinnitus. It is best to use foam ear plugs or ear muffs to protect your hearing when there is loud noise in your environment. Also, avoid listening to music at high volumes when in the car or at home.
