I thought I’d start a topic on weird experiences with hearing, mostly to see if anyone else has experienced odd occurences when listening to music or just going about their life (or if it’s just me).
I ask due to two things I experience on a regular basis. The first Is what I describe as sudden-onset tinitus, which is like someone holding a tuning fork on my upper jawbone so I get a tone that starts then fades out over 30-60 seconds. I also have episodes where all the HF audio gets cut out in one ear (like someone’s rolling a low-pass filter down from 20kHz to ~2kHz) and then it slowly restores over ~5 minutes.
I also have another one when I yawn with IEMs in and the music I’m listening to drops in pitch (but not in speed) by a semitone or slightly more and then goes back to normal when I stop yawning.
I have had three concussions that I know of throughout my life which might go some way to explaining the above, but I was curious to see if anyone else experiences such sonic oddities. Apologies if this topic is inappropriate for any reason.
