What Does Tinnitus Sound Like (Listen To 10 Crazy Tinnitus Sounds)

In the tinnitus clinic, there’s no way to diagnose or record the exact sound that you hear in your auditory brain. We rely on your description. Let’s listen to these 10 different types of tinnitus and leave a comment to let us know which ones closest to yours.

Did your tinnitus sound like one of these or does your tinnitus sound like something different? Typically ringing, buzzing, hissing, electrical noise, or crickets are related to damage to the hearing organ, the cochlea. Sometimes roaring, pulsing or whooshing can be related to a treatable medical condition. If you have one of those types of tinnitus, I recommend seeing an ear nose and throat doctors they get an evaluation.

A lot of my patients with tinnitus show improvement using strategies like Tinnitus Retraining Therapy, sound therapy, or mindfulness.
