      Hearing Test
      I listened to a video at an average volume showing some jazz chord progressions.

      I was horrified to discover that they're still faintly playing in my ears 30 minutes afterwards.

      It's not like an earworm though. It definitely has the same sensation that tinnitus has.

      How is this sort of thing even possible? Feeling hopeless.

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Aspirin Toxicity/Possibly Noise
      When falling asleep, like last night, I will get a very loud explosion sound. Last night it sounded like a very high quality synthesizer sound that would have been in a NES game. It always startles me greatly.

      I know there is Musical Ear Syndrome, but yours doesn't sound like that.

      I had the above on 2 occassions. It was like far off music playing, and only lasted a few seconds.

      Stress? Who knows...
      Happened to me when I was listening to crickets at night. Suddenly got stuck in my head and had to wait 3-4 days for it to disappear. Be patient and it will go away.

      Weird thing. It could be more refined and elegant if my tinnitus sounded like Vivaldi's Winter.

      I’m sure you’ve looked into exploding head syndrome? I had this early on post-tinnitus-inducing car accident. It turned the two tones I normally hear into a cacophony. This has been mostly resolved with sleep medication that knocks me out before my brain has a chance to extrapolate on the shit it wants me to hear (250mg quetiapine, 15mg mirtazapine). If it takes you a long time to get to sleep this may be the culprit, not that I’m suggesting this medication unless you truly cannot sleep.
      Is your Vyvanse no longer effective in controlling your reactions to the tinnitus?

      I had the same on different occasions. Classical concert still in my ears after a car ride, ambulance sound. It always took at most a few hours and then faded away and left me with my normal T. Still quite bothersome. This seems also to be a very rare condition. But I think I have also read from others here on TT who suffer from this "echo hearing".

      This is actually quite common, and isn't related to tinnitus at all. Sometimes people hear someone yell their name, or an explosion type sound. I've experienced both. It happens in the hypnogognic state where you are transitioning from awake to asleep. I actually had this happen once when I was put under anesthesia for surgery.
