        Thanks. You are probably correct. I've been looking into other stuff like the Hough pill (I can probably synthesise HPN-07 in the lab or just have it ordered, but it's expensive).

        Hope your sound distortion are subsiding

        Thanks, but they are due to hearing loss, so they're exactly the same... I'm not very hopeful - I can't listen to complex music at all, the most I can listen to is mellow jazz (and even that has hissing drums).

      One of the top ENTs of my country has officially confirmed I have synaptopathy based on a battery of ABR tests... :/

        Auditory brainstem response. I managed to get to a good doc who knows her stuff. Minor abnormalities show neuropathy - IHCs/OHCs seem to be fine, but the signal does not reach my brain properly. And since it's noise induced, it's going to be synaptopathy as those are the first to go.

      My T reacts to my car's pedestrian warning hum... Uh, can't drive with the windows down.

        Stupid pedestrian shouldn’t walk in the road anyway...

        Hahah, it's only on at low speeds since the car is pretty much quiet otherwise (EV).

      No improvement in over a month after my acoustic trauma. Maybe less aural fullness, that's it.

        you honestly will be fine if it's only ringing or static. It will get quieter without further loud noise, it might take a year or even more. 6-9 months seems the sweet spot for first timers.

        It's multiple tones with reactivity and hyperacusis... Pretty trash :(

      My ENT tentatively agrees with 'hidden hearing loss', especially after hearing about my (stupid) frequency test. FML.

      I probably have hidden hearing loss... Music sounds really distorted at high frequencies.
