      Hi everyone

      This is kiran... I got T in july... Now it's not annoying as much as it does before

      I am a mobile phone lover.. I mostly use my mobile 9 hrs a day.. And i don't watch tv or don't use laptop or anything except mobile

      So is this makes things worse.. Or can i proceed??

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      not known, too many possible causes
      I can 't say anything with certainty, as there are no published scientific articles that prove that the extensive use of the mobile phone
      1) can causes T
      2) can worsen a pre-existing T
      (and I doubt that such scientific articles will ever surface even if studies were made and such conclusions were drawn, because the cell phone companies make so much money that they can bribe anybody to stop publishing those articles)
      but I belive in both statements.
      The sounds of the cell phones are not natural and our ears are not made to cope with processing them, so I believe that hearing cell phone sounds extensively is damaging for the health of the brain and of the ears.

      ...in the same way that watching closely and very focused a display for many hours is damaging for the eyes, while seeing a natural landscape will not harm your eyes in any way, not even making them tired.

      A warm welcome to the forums Kiran.

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Flu, Noise-induced, Jaw trauma
      Agree with both above, I use hands free when talking as it is not natural and hurts my ears. I get hearing dullness straight after using a mobile phone to my ear.

      As Dana says the sounds are not quite right. Maybe it comes from having T longer but if I listen to low quality audio sources for any length of time I spike. Doesn't help the wallet any as I can't buy cheap audio equipment.
