HairRaisingExperienc: It's not bad,rather it indicates a problem in your hearing apparatus called "tinnitus"(which literally means "ringing"in Latin).There are little hairs in there that have gotten a premature haircut,usually from loud noises or extreme pressure.That disrupts their firing mechanisms and they are then turned on never to rest again.Sometimes it's caused by a serious problem so best to see a doctor.
