EITHER WAY — IT IS ANNOYING

Tinnitus is the perception of sound, 

or “ringing,” in one or both ears 

when no other sound is present. It 

can be intermittent or constant—

with single or multiple tones—and 

its perceived volume can range from 

subtle to shattering.

Self-reported tinnitus in people of all 

ages indicates that tinnitus affects up 

to ¹∕³ of the general population. 

You can be exposed to damaging noise, a leading cause of tinnitus, from many sources in 

day-to-day or recreational activites, such as:

Your hearing should be tested by an audiologist certifi ed by ASHA 

to see if hearing loss is present. Since tinnitus can be associated with 

a number of hearing-related conditions, the hearing (audiologic) 

evaluation can help provide information about the cause and 

treatment options for you. 

Avoid loud noise whenever possible—if you must shout to be heard, then you should 

avoid the situation.
