    It sounds more like some sort of occlusion effect, like when one has a cold.

  5. Juan replied to the thread Why Is the Same External Sound Less Painful When Masked by White Noise?.

    Yes, I think that may help. Basically you have to get your ears used to sound, but avoid very loud sound. There are things you can try: -...

    You can get it checked but in 99,9% of cases doctors won't find anything wrong, and actually the test they may want you to undergone can worsen...

    That's hearing sensitivity. Duct tape, plastic etc are loud, and ears that have hearing problems hate those sounds. The ears contract, it is just...

  9. Juan replied to the thread Earplugs for Swimming and Running?.

    Running with proper earplugs sounds to me like a bad idea due to the occlusion effect.

  11. Juan replied to the thread Is the Thought of Tinnitus Getting Worse Scarier Than Your Actual Tinnitus Level Right Now?.

  13. Juan replied to the thread Spending Time at Sea (The Atlantic Ocean) / Sea Sounds Seem to Quieten My Tinnitus.

    The sound of the sea resembles white noise, radio static, etc. It is like a layer of broadband noise.

  14. Juan replied to the thread A Test (Maybe Tympanogram?) at the ENT Department Made My Tinnitus Much Worse.

    In theory a standard tympanogram is not loud. Actually, a tympanogram can be also performed only by delivering pressure, not even any beeps.

    So what is the standard treatment in Sweden for hearing loss resulting from noise trauma?

  18. Juan replied to the thread A Test (Maybe Tympanogram?) at the ENT Department Made My Tinnitus Much Worse.

    That test does not sound like a tympanogram. Could it be evoked potential? That's a test with loud noise, like some crackling noise, that can be...

    They're noisy too. The A380 is exceptionally quiet but the medium planes are loud too.

    Noise inside a plane depends a lot on where you sit, what kind of plane you are flying and the actual maintenance of the aircraft. It can vary a lot.
