The ears might seem hardy, but your hearing can be damaged for any number of reasons. Often this damage can lead to symptoms of hearing loss that include tinnitus. If you have tinnitus, it means that you hear phantom sounds. People with tinnitus describe the sounds in a number of ways--hissing, whining, ringing, and buzzing are the more common ones. These sounds can range from mildly annoying to distracting to debilitating. Tinnitus isn't always permanent, but for millions of people it is. Although there is no pill to cure tinnitus there are ways to manage it. A newer technique involves the use of tinnitus apps, either on their own or paired with a hearing aid.
