      Had T for about 2 years now. It is clearly noise induced, but occurs ONLY when there is external noise - anyone talking (including myself), vehicles, thunder, lawnmowers - most anything. If I am in a quite room for 10 minutes or so, it goes away. I love waking up - it is quiet - so there is no T, no fullness, no hum or buzz in my head. As the noise of the day occurs, the hum develops. It is primarily in my right ear, but with a lot of noise it can seem to be in both. I take breaks by going into a quiet room - and it goes away. When I return to 'real life' and the noise, it comes back.

      Anyone else experience this? I can't locate anything like this on the internet. Thanks.

      WHAT THE BEEP?

      T that you can only hear when there's noise around you?

      What can cause that?

      Yes, I have this too. My tinnitus gets loud when I listen to music or hear something loud. How are you dealing with it? I'm sure my tinnitus is caused by taking a lot of Advil and blasting my music over the years.

      Yea I'm the same, Most mornings I wake up and its quiet, if I try to listen to music it just sounds wrong and I can hear the buzz and ting of tinnitus, I think it comes from damaged hair cells as they get stimulated they cannot hold the electrical charge and just dump the charge.
      When I am in silence I can actually hear things calming down. Strangest thing ever, I miss my music, I would come home from work and listen to music, Guns n Roses, Marilyn Manson etc, not at big volume but enough to get absorbed, now it all just sounds like broken biscuits.
