The Centers for Disease Control reports that about 10 percent of the U.S. adult population (about 25 million Americans) experiences tinnitus. Tinnitus is a condition in which people hear noises, described as a ringing sound, a high-pitched tone, sometimes a humming, hissing, static or buzzing sound. These noises are not objectively present, and that is why we refer to the condition as subjective tinnitus.
