      For fuck sake, I was so unlucky. I just wanted to test out how loud can the car stereo be... how much db? 110db for 2 mins? Fuck...

        @GCS Don't beat yourself up. When we've abused our ears, it doesn't take much to cause tinnitus. I was exposed to an 80dB compressor for 15 minutes, nothing out of the ordinary, but it was the straw that broke the camels back. It is a harsh reality, but we have to move forward.

        My problem was caused by an exposure that lasted a Fraction of a SECOND.

      I'm stopping to blame myself. I have never knew about tinnitus and that it can be caused by music. I was just listening to music...

        It’s a step we all need to take. No point in blaming ourselves for something we didn’t know about.

        I had this tinnitus, and it came out and it was just static after 4 months.
        Tomorrow I'm going to take a 90db exam and maybe I'll destroy all my progress.

      Do I have moderate tinnitus? I can hear it outside but moderate volume music or high volume tv 95% masks it.

        nah... tv doesn't mask it, I can still hear it clearly.

        You'll get over that feeling of guilt @GCS. It happens to the best of us. The thing is that tinnitus will generally fade as time passes by. Just keep the faith;)

        @GCS you will overcome the guilt. I beat myself up about stuff for a long time. I had all the “what ifs”. You’ll learn to let go eventually, even if it doesn’t feel like it right now. X

      Static, hissing, sizzling. That is my tinnitus. Why I never had ringing? Usually people get ringing and then hissing.

        Agree with Vassili - please cherish the fact that your hearing is fine! :) Hissing is likely to become quieter or go away completely, provided you don't experience any other acoustic traumas.

        Take solace in knowing many people have done alot worse than this and walked away fine. Just bad luck and not your fault per say. Just as you have prob gotten away with things unbeknownst to you, that others have woken up too and thought WTF.

        I would prefer mine not to change from the start, because it was so much better.
        One thing I learned is that what we have is bad, but it can be worse.

      For a lot of people tinnitus change. For me it is constant hissing from the start. 2 and a half months. At least it is not pure tone ringing

        I had my first small positive changes only after 8 months. Felt truly better after a year and still continue to improve even after 20 months. 2.5 months is nothing in tinnitus world, unfortunately.

      Is hissing sound more pleasant than the ringing? I never had ringing just hissing from the start.

        I would say its the same volume as the ring which goes up and down. For me when I had (or get) tonal flickering ringing it was maddening and all the time just distracting. Obviously I don't like the hiss sound but I find my mind is prob 90% less drawn to it that the ringing. I have found the ringing has turned into a hiss almost with 10% of tone in it somewhere.

        Yes, hissing is orders of magnitude easier to bear than ringing. It means you haven't hurt your ears as much as many others on this forum. Within a year or two your T ought to fade.

        Hissing or airplane engine noise to me sounds much better than the ringing. When I go days with the ringing, I become irritable.

      Was working hard to have a great life after university. Only one trip in a car with loud music was needed to give myself tinnitus...

        Protect your ears from all of the noises that don't feel right, and eventually you will get to the "can hear it only in quiet rooms" stage.

        What is the possibility of getting there even after 2 and a half months of no change?

        @GCS There's a lot of testimonies of people beginning to improve after several months, so you could very well improve if you're careful. But even if it doesn't improve, and you're left with hissing that's very stable, you'll most certainly adapt to the noise and live a very fulfilling and productive life; I can assure you that.
