      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Loud concert with ear plugs
      My worsening / resurgence came after a Gene Simmons concert.

      I guess most will be rock bands, due to the high-pitched sound of the distortion. The acoustics of these bands is not usually the best either (they play anywhere). Maybe the musical genre matters, not just the volume.

      My own guitar playing.

      And yes, distorted/overdriven guitar effects carry overtones in high frequencies with high energy. For me it was a phaser effect.

      Snarling dubstep noises are the same.

      Hi,

      I did it playing with my own band. I played in a rock band from being around 14 to 20. Had a break until I was 25, this time last year. It was only last weekend that I noticed this horrible high pitched noise.. not like the tone you get after a concert, that pretty much disappeared the next day. But the high pitched hissing that seems to shift around your head... really difficult to mask, due to it being so high pitched and piercing. Hearing it everywhere right now.

      So yeh, rock music basically. Being stood about 3 yards away from a drum kit has done it for me. I could play my guitar for a long time at gig volume levels and would generally be okay. But cymbals on a drum kit just shred your ears.

      Still trying to come to terms with all this, my world seems to have gone very very grey.

      Steel Panther I think, it is hard to see exactly when tinnitus got to this level it is now as it was so gradual but it was definitely around the time of that concert I am sure - March 2015.

      I wish I have "Zakk Wylde signature ears". He always plays with ultra trebly wah-wah at bestial volume and he is OK.

      My T probably got permanently worse from recording vocals for a song during two intense days. So interestingly enough, I have the moments that I ruined my life recorded. It was one of the happiest moments of my life too.

      Noticed increased T one week after the event.
