ringing in the ears


one of my drum buddies is having a problems where he hears ringing in the ears. i think he has tinnitis because he hasn't been wearing ear protection. I think that this should really convince him to start wearing some headphones or plugs but is there anything he can do to ease it down? Has anyone been to an ear doctor or soemthing? If so, what did they do for you? thanks in advance

yeah unforunately he has tnitus but if he just now started getting ringing he might be able to save his hearing. also theres a product out on the market called lipoflavenoid check out you local phamacy to see if they have some

Ive had ringing in my ears for a very long time now and I have lost a lot of sleep over it but for a few years I would leave the tv on when I went to bed and that seemed to help me sleep untill it go better from not playing for a while. I guess what Im saying is that if you can then try and have somthing distracting for your ears untill the ringing gets better.

I can't imagine not being able to sleep because of a ringing in the ears.. I think I'd go mad... A lesson to all - always wear earplugs when you're banging on your drums!

Re: ringing in the ears


If hearing damage gets bad enough it will be permanent. Anyone who plays drums should wear ear protection if they want to still have good hearing. I've found that just a good pair of over the ear headphones are good enough to stop ringing.

Re: ringing in the ears


Ya Im going with Luke. used over the ear headphones too. and if you wanna use music and drumm at the same time try this trick I inventid Just put in earplugs then put on rap-around headphones. Blast your music so that you can hear it. Then the drums are quiet but the music is hearable. a cheap way to make noise cancelling headphones.

Re: ringing in the ears


I recommend going to a Dr and getting properly diagnosed and start protecting your ears. I was an auto mechanic and played drums since Jr high. At 38 my hearing was that of a 65 year old man. All high frequencies no longer exists. Years fly by and you will probably live longer than you think. Preventative maintenance is the way to go.
