      I find it rather unpleasant to listen to rock music lately, because it doesn't sound like it used to be. It's distorted in a non-fun way.

      Other threads on Tinnitus Talk seem to suggest that this is a common problem. I'd find it interesting what strategies others employ to cope with it. Did you discover other music that isn't as problematic?

      AFAIC, I can still listen to jazz at low volume. That sound is still the same, and it's quite enjoyable in fact.

      Hi, I’ve had tinnitus for 3 years, medication induced. For me, it’s not the type of music that is the problem. It is strictly the volume. I play classic rock and sometimes jazz at low volume, and of course, not through headphones. All public events, in normal times before COVID-19, are out. Assuming things get back to normal within the next year, there will be no live concerts, sports events or plays with large numbers of people. Amplified sound is too dangerous for me. Good luck.

      I can still listen to the first few albums by the band Low. I usually just put on their album "the curtain hits the cast" and the only song I cant tolerate anymore is "do you know how to waltz". It was my favorite on the album :(

      Same here. Music doesn’t bother me much and I’m very grateful for it. Sorry to hear so many have issues with it. I can’t even imagine.

      I have really noticeable distortion. I used to listen to lots of metal and some rock and jazz. At this point I can’t stand anything with high tones. That means I still listen to those 3 genres but I try to stick to things with lower male voices and strong tenor and bass instruments. For metal this was fairly easy for a lot of death metal and almost all slam metal is very low pitch in almost every way. Super high guitar solos hurt though... and no more trumpets for jazz.
