Interview: What is Musical Ear Syndrome (MES)?

Musical ear syndrome is when you hear music that isn't there, basically. It's common when people have some hearing loss but that's not how it always is. There are two kinds of musical ear syndrome One kind is where you hear it out of thin air, and the other kind is when you hear it only when there's other sound, usually out of white noise. And it's not always music. You could also hear mumbling voices and other sounds.
