What Is Tinnitus?
Wikipedia defines tinnitus as follows:

Tinnitus can be perceived in one or both ears or in the head.

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.
It has also been described as a "wooshing" sound, as of wind or waves.

Tinnitus can be intermittent, or it can be continuous, in which case it can be the cause of great distress.

In some individuals, the intensity can be changed by shoulder, head, tongue, jaw, or eye movements.

Tinnitus is not a disease, but a symptom that can result from a wide range of underlying causes including but not limited to:
abnormally loud sounds in the ear canal for even the briefest period
ear infections
foreign objects in the ear
nasal allergies that prevent (or induce) fluid drain
wax build-up in the ears
stress and traumatic life events
Withdrawal from a benzodiazepine addiction may cause tinnitus as well.

In-ear headphones, whose sound enters directly into the ear canal without any opportunity to be deflected or absorbed elsewhere, is a common cause of tinnitus when volume is set beyond moderate levels.

Tinnitus can also be caused by natural hearing impairment (as is often seen in aging), as a side effect of some medications, and as a side effect of genetic congenital hearing loss.

The most common cause is noise-induced hearing loss, followed by stress and sinus problems.

All three of the main causes of tinnitus are explained in detail in the videos below along with the most appropriate treatment options for each particular tinnitus cause.
