DJ Bruce referred us to this great article about “Tinnitus” , a hearing loss problem that is sighted and reported in several cases of DJ’s in the industry.

The English pronounce it “Tin – nit – tus” and the Americans “tin -nye-tus”, but anyone that has tinnitus would call it “life-changing”.

Full time DJs know that it can take up to 1-3 hours after a gig before the ringing finally goes away. Unfortunately, for some people, that persistant buzz never disappears.
