      Yes, but it doesn't have anything to do with tinnitus and more to do with bones conducting sounds through your body (wish I could be more scientific about it). This is why your voice sounds distorted with plugs too. I've worn earplugs for years prior to getting T, same thing happens. Totally normal.
