      Hi folks,

      My hearing test came out as normal, but some sounds are strange to me. Some things sound very high pitched/tinkly. Car brakes, coins in a pockets, metal gates etc?

      Anyone else have this?

      Many thanks.

      I have to agree with the previous responder. It happened to me. Certain sounds sounded tinny to me early on but it eventually got better.

      Sounds like Hyperacusis. How are you doing now?
