I'm pretty sure I got tinnitus from spending the past 5 years listening to extreme metal music at loud volumes everyday with earbuds. I'm surprised my tinnitus is not louder than it is right now. Haha. So since I got my tinnitus a month ago I haven't listened to my iPod. It's a damn shame, I was just collecting the Morbid Angel albums. Needed 3 more albums to complete my collection. Lol.
