      It seems like there is little data about how long the ears can heal after an acoustic trauma (and thus, for how long tinnitus and hyperacusis can continue to improve).

      Some sources simply claim 6 months or 12 months, but don't provide any evidence for these claims. I've also seen users on Tinnitus Talk claim even longer time periods.

      Based on your experience or belief, what do you think is the answer here? Please let us know by voting! Please also feel free to reply with your own personal anecdote.

      The divergences of responses is interesting. 45% of people say less than a month, and 50% say more than a year!
