Ringing in the ears: Medically called tinnitus, this can arise in any of "the four sections of the ear" -- the outer ear, the middle ear, the inner ear, and the brain -- and can be due to many causes including ear infections, fluid in the ears, Meniere syndrome (the combination of tinnitus and deafness), some medications such as aspirin and other nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), aging, and ear trauma (such as from the noise of planes, firearms, or loud music).

I am constantly astounded at the number of people at events who are aware of how hard it is to talk, who leave events early, who complain in general because they are hoarse from shouting over the music, but never say anything to the club, the restaurant, the organizer, etc. Hearing loss began early for Josh Musto, triggered at first by a heavy metal concert and worsened by years of playing guitar in two bands. Josh Musto, a music student at New York City's New School, is an intern at SiriusXM radio.
Earlier this year the World Health Organization warned that 1.1 billion young people are at risk of hearing loss because of personal audio devices, such as smartphones, and damaging levels of sound at entertainment venues like electronic dance music festivals, where noise levels can top 120 decibels for hours.
Hearing loss among today's teens is about 30 percent higher than in the 1980s and 1990s, Cherukuri estimates. Cherukuri tells young patients to stop wearing headphones — especially earbuds, which place the sound closer to the ear drum, enhancing volume by as much as 9 decibels.
According to the National Institutes of Health, repeated exposure to sound over 85 decibels can cause hearing loss.

And because audio-screening protocols are not that sophisticated, many children with subtle damage pass hearing tests, she added. A study published in 2014 revealed that nerve synapses can be more vulnerable to damage than hair cells in the inner ear. When using headphones in a noisy place like a school bus or subway, the tendency is the turn the volume up, so use headphones that cover up outside noise. And to protect your kids, use Apple's parental control setting to set lower sound levels on iPhones and iPods, locked in place with a password.
For small children at loud sporting events, music concerts or riding on the subway, buy ear protection. After seeing a doctor, he only uses over-the-ear headphones and protects his ears from loud noise with customized ear plugs. Today, he continues to play in two bands and interns at Sirius XM radio, doing interviews and some DJing. In rare situations, tinnitus may also be due to an aneurysm or an acoustic neuroma (a benign tumor on the acoustic nerve). Listening to loud music constantly through ear buds may be to blame for a ringing in his ears.

Doctors warn that a steady onslaught of loud noise, particularly through ear buds, is damaging the hearing of a generation wired for sound — although they may not realize it for years.
Permanent damage can happen in minutes, experts say, and when the damage is done, it's irreversible.
When young animals were exposed to loud noise, even just once, they had accelerated hearing loss later in life. Woodwind players are more likely to experience tinnitus than other orchestral players, probably because they usually sit just in front of the brass. Should I be concerned?Hearing a ringing or a tone in the ears when there is no external sound present is called tinnitus.
