When you’re in complete silence, do you hear a ringing tone, or is it just straight silent?

  1. Yea, its called tinnitus. Started getting it in my left ear a few years ago. Years of tool use and loud shows finally caught up to me at age 34.

    Wear hearing protection. I didnt.

  2. There’s no such thing as total silence for me.
    There’s always something going off somewhere.
    I probably have to try sensory deprivation chamber.

  3. Ringing for a while. But if I sit for a period of time 10-15 minutes usually, it’s like a switch flips off and all the ambient sound turns off or gets quieter

  4. There’s definitely a faint “rushing” sound…like water running. But I only hear it when it’s DEAD quiet, like I’m in a very remote area at night.

  5. Whenever I’m at a very quiet place (on my bed for example) I hear a very subtle ringing sound, like when you get a flashbang to the face in CSGO but much more quiet. I don’t feel upset with that at all, it only happens when the environment is rather quiet.

  6. I have constant sorta white noisy thing going on that I can only really hear when it’s quiet. There’s sometimes ringing too, but rare and doesn’t last long
