Ford Posted February 16, 2019 Report Share Posted February 16, 2019 Hi All -- I just got my implant activated 2 days ago and was noticing what sounds like feedback (in the the traditional sense) in the very high frequencies. I believe this is impossible as there is no "speaker" producing the sound, but the very high pitches seem to ring a little with louder sounds. My audiologist did not really have an answer for what I was experiencing. I have had tinnitus for years (high frequency) and my experience is that this comes and goes, but when it happens it is constant for some time...minutes...hours maybe.... This new sound is really like feedback---if I clap my hands, there is a residual high pitched ringing for about 3 seconds that tapers off and disappears -- just as you would expect in a concert venue if the HF was feeding back on a stage or something (we used to "ring out" a room in my sound engineering days by clapping and listening for what frequencies were "ringing"...) Perhaps just my auditory nerve getting stimulated for the first time in over 10 years...but does this sound familiar and anybody have any thoughts?
