      Tinnitus Since:
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Whenever I play tones around 16 khz, it causes my T to recede with residual inhibition. Does this mean my T is in that range? I had a hearing test when I went to the ENT, and they say my hearing is ideal, or even better, for a 21 year old. They didn't notice any pressure problems in my ear. I can hear the sound over everything, it's not loud, but it's extremely piercing and distinct.

      Idk but they probably didn't test you up to 1600hz.

      You should see if you can get a high frequency hearing test. My only really obnoxious T is around 14khz and tends to be more left sided than right; lo and behold I have a threshold drop on the left between 13 and 15khz. It's actually not that bad, maybe a 10db difference between ears, but there you go.
