Now that brings back memories. Love on the beach should not be quiet

Could hear flies buzzing at 20 yards or more. Just wonderful.
Not so wonderful unless you like the buzzing sound. Once I rented a house in a very quiet place, so quiet it was distressing. I could hear all these goddamn insects having a party each night. Very distressing.

No, the ringing in your ears is not due to the silence, nor is it due to the power failure.

Sure, but most of us never hear it until that happens. That's the point. The modern world is a noisy place.

With tinnitus (other than the transient sort from exposure loud sounds) the ringing is persistent although the level can vary. How well you hear it depends, as the OP hinted, on how much it is masked by background noises.

It's settled then, we have a cure for tinnitus.

I have found that a cap made from aluminum foil helps attenuate the noise. I have also discovered that if your co-workers find the shiny foil offensive, a coating of Rustoleum (in the suitable natural color) helps.

Should the foil cap cover the ears, or not?

No it does not have to cover the ears to be effective. See example below.

Note: If your going to paint your hat you might want to prime it with a zinc-chromate primer suitable for non ferrous metals.

It is cold here nowadays, +17to +28deg C(don't laugh, 17 is too cold for us) We do not use fan and there is no ringing in the ears when power fails.

After returning to land from a ship cruise for a long period, u start to feel the roll and pitch for nearly two days, an after-effect. This ear thing looks to be
similar.
