      Hello,

      i just recently had tinnitus in my right ear, and now its completely gone, and then i got tinnitus in my left year, which is so low that i can barely hear it. But, i noticed something extremely strange.

      When people are talking, i can like, hear the underlaying tone in their voice somethimes. This happens only in my right ear, where the tinn is gone:

      Its like, if you say: "Hi, my name is todd. I like ice cream", i can hear what your saying, but in addition iwth some delay, i hear: "NN, NNN NNN N NNNN. .." Like the constantly changing tone of your voice, i can hear the way you¨re speaking, in tones..

      What is thisss?

      the sound is like when someone is talking through a fan, or a tube.

      It's scary.

      I don’t really understand what you have, but if it continue, maybe seeing a doctor will reveal some issues with eardrum? like something Blocing it partially?

      What caused yout T?

      I'm sorry, maybe I mislead you guys.

      I have a metallic echo. It makes a normal conversation louder, and it's kind of deep metallic sound. It's the same with every sound. Eight days before, I did have tinnitus in this ear, but it vanished for two days, and I got this echo. And I got very mild tinnitus in the other ear instead. (which I i feel would be easy to live with -). But the echo is not something I feel I could live with. It makes weak noises, loud metallic.

      Is the same with music.

      It's like when listening to a shell. I can hear a delay. Like the noise exists in the ear afterwards as well(when watching a football match because then I hear instant noise)

      I had that sound too before I developed the t. I think it was some sort of hyperacusis amd I may have had some fluid in my ear. After I took Afrin nasal spray for a couple of days the Echo and distortion went away. I told my ENT but she just said hmm, interesting amd did tell me it was hyperacusis.
      Then the t started right after the echoes went away.

      It might be, I'm going to the cinema with weak tinnitus in the right ear and high echo in the other. Should I use ear plugs?

      I would. I can't go into a cinema at all. So yes. Protect your ears in there.
