    yeah. yeah.

    But seriously, it's your ear tuning itself. And in case you were wondering, the call/response ratio is 1:1.2. The hairs in your ears can actually generate these tones...

    I strongly suggest you purchase Jacob Kirkegard's "Labyrinthitis" from Touch Records.

    I've always wondered. The nerd in me kinda hoped it was some sorta frequency that I could hear when a certain sort of transmission was made, and that someday I'd find the source of the transmissions and some grand secret of the world would be unveiled to me. Alas.

    Is it worse than when you answer the phone and it's a fucking air horn of some ship blowing with the captain telling you that you've won a vacation blaring into your ear, or a recording of Michelle calling you telling you that your warranty on your car has expired?

    That's immediately what sprung to mind when I saw the thread title. My ringing increased for three straight days following their first show at Roseland.

    I do get that ringing, bmack. Not severe by any stretch, but it's there. In fact, I've got it right now. It might be residual noise from having a massive hangover while playing music with some friends on Sunday afternoon. But it also happens with no provocation.

    I know it's not concert ringing because I haven't been to a show in a week, and this has been happening for as long as I can remember. It's just a short, very loud high frequency that I get sometimes, and Jared's explanation makes sense. Sadly.

    Actually it is something you should think about. It could be the beginning of a decline in your hearing. When i noticed it happening more frequently, that's when i started wearing earplugs in loud situations. When i listen to music or watch something, i don't go crazy with the sound being too loud. i figure i have a lot of hearing to do; and being cautious with the damage i suspect i already have is a good move in my opinion.

    My problem is that I can no longer hear high pitches anymore. Is that too many times spent next to the speaker?

    That and getting older. i go for the plugs when i feel that filling and stuffiness of the ear. i mess with my plugs throughout the show to see if i don't need them (i love being parked by sound boards for great sound). When i take pictures, i put them in definitely before i even get close to the barricade. i have had my head on the speaker and won't do it unless i got something in my head.

    Once and a while is totally fine.

    You can actually generate these tones yourself if you have a simple sin tone generator. Just play two high tones (above 4000 works best) at a ratio of 1 to 1.2, your ear will then attempt to generate the first tone itself. This will sound different, almost as if it is coming from inside your head. The music piece I mentioned before plays on this phenomenon.

    It is nothing to worry about, but should only last a few seconds. Tinnitus is constant ringing, this has nothing to do with that. There are tons of circumstances that cause your ears to auto tune like that: pressure changes, sudden shifts in volume perception, exposure to pitches that you don't normally hear, and regular checks that your ears do on themselves.

    I love the vibration, when you can feel it in your heart and your bones. Unfortunately you also feel it in your ears for years to come.

    i get this from time to time too. It's strange, sorta like what I imagined it sounds like after a gernade goes off next to you and you lose your hearing. Everytime it happens to me I think of Saving Private Ryan (though not that bad, of course).

    I always wondered what this was but was apparently too lazy to go to wikipedia myself. Finally someone brings it up here
    Then I will hold you down and spit her percolations all over you until you're as greasy as the day she regrets pushing your big fat ass out her big fat cunt.

    You can still feel it with your ears protected.

    wmgaretjax is right, but after the abuse that has gone on to my ears over my time here so far, i'm going to play it as safe as i can.

    I hear waves in my right ear whenever I go to sleep. It is really weird.

    I don't have a high-pitched ringing, but every so often the sound completely drops out of my right ear. It returns fairly quickly, but for a few seconds it feels like I've crammed several cotton balls in one ear.

    You may land up putting more attention to stage presence as time goes on.
