In general, tinnitus is the perception of noise in the ears. Sometimes this is a real noise (objective) and in other situations, it could be phantom sounds in your ears (subjective, sound that does not exist to others).

The variety of tinnitus you're coping with will most likely, but not always have an impact on the sound you hear. And there's a lot of possible sounds you could hear. Samples could be an electric motor, ringing, whooshing, screeching, roaring, high-pitch whistle, buzzing, static, and more.

Tinnitus treatments will normally take two possible approaches: masking the noise or helping your brain figure out how to dismiss the noise. Whatever your tinnitus sounds maybe, the first step is to identify and familiarize yourself with them.
