      New T in one ear sounds like a static radio and I'm hearing certain lower pitched sounds resonate at that frequency (probably 4khz+) but I'm mostly deaf around those frequencies in that ear.

      Anyone have any idea what that is?

      Edit: I'm counting at least 9 different Ts right now and some of them are roaring loud (more than usual). :(

      Hope I'll be able to sleep

      Edit2: just pinpointed the frequency to about 4khz, which is almost the threshold of my where I significantly lose hearing in that ear.

      Edit3: the triggers seem to be thereabouts of 375hz (+/- 25), 550 hz (+/- 25) and 750 hz (+/- 25). Might be harmonics of the same frequency discounting for some distortions in both the equipment I'm using and my ears...

      Seems to be gone now. Thankfully it didn't accompany further hearing loss

      Honestly just went away during the day. I'd suggest isolating yourself from loud noses, wear earplugs if necessary.
