      ... or is it nonsense?

      Look here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Otoacoustic_emission

      "The relationships between otoacoustic emissions and tinnitus have been explored. Several studies suggest that in about 6% to 12% of normal-hearing persons with tinnitus and SOAEs, the SOAEs are at least partly responsible for the tinnitus".

      I show SOAEs too. And the odd thing is that I have severe hearing loss at 6k+ but my otoscoustic emission test also shows 4k lost. My audiologist felt that showed my loss is on the cochlear level, not just the nerve.

      Obviously no one can hear otoacoustic emissions.
      The Wikipedia article quotes one very old publication.

      Could fleeting tinnitus be spontaneous otoacustic emmissions?
