The sound you hear...

The New Yorker has a curious piece on tinnitus, a condition where someone hears constant tones or sounds that won't go away, typically due to some type of audio-related trauma or injury.

I knew someone in college with this problem; it definately impacted his ability to hear and how he spoke. Some are suggesting the proliferation of portable mp3 players may increase the rate of this problem in the population over time.
