The resulting electrical noise takes the form of tinnitus a sound that is high-pitched if hearing loss is in the high-frequency range and low-pitched if it’s in the low-frequency range. The sound may be soft or loud, low pitched or high pitched and appear to be coming from one ear or both. It is usually described as a ringing noise but, in some patients, it takes the form of a high-pitched whining, electric buzzing, hissing, humming, tinging or whistling sound or as ticking, clicking, roaring, crickets or tree frogs or locusts (cicadas), tunes, songs, beeping, sizzling, sounds that slightly resemble human voices or even a pure steady tone like that heard during a hearing test and, in some cases, pressure changes from the interior ear.
