Does tinnitus affect your ability to listen to music? (choose the option closest to your situation)

  1. No effect — in fact it help cover up the tinnitus

  2. Somewhat — I'm a little more careful with the volume these days

  3. Definitely — I have to turn the music WAY down

  4. Worst Case Scenario — I can no longer listen to music

      I'm sure everyone's situation doesn't match the choices exactly - but closest works..

      I like listening to music, just not too loud. I've noticed that when I listen to my fav's that the ' chill down the spine' feeling is really intense.

      possibly noise
      I never liked 'loud', so I don't really need to turn it down much. But sometimes my tinnitus is a little louder than usual, which makes me a little more tired, and doing something hearing-related such as listening to music is just less appealing.

      More so than that, it affects my ability to enjoy music. The ultra high pitched tinnitus just competes with music.

      I love music but the tinnitus always competes with the music when I listen and sometimes spoils it.

      Most likely acoustic hearing loss
      I definitely watch the volume knob a lot more now, especially with the car windows open. I'm starting to rekindle my enjoyment of music 14 months after T onset. It helps a lot more now than in the early days when I was more afraid.
