Don't listen too closely...

You know that ringing you hear when you're in some silent room? When there's nothing going on around you, or even when you're in a bustling room full of people? Well some people say the cause of this sensation is that people are talking about you. Science says this is an auditory-illusion brought about by the ear’s inability to detect frequencies below the threshold of the human senses.

Both are wrong.

That ringing covers up something completely different altogether. Something...sinister. If you are quick, patient, and a little lucky, you may be able to hear past this ringing. When or if you do, please be careful. What you hear may scare you away from any other-worldly creatures. But I promise you, they are people just like you and me. They just have special abilities. Abilities to get into your head. Tell you things you never wanted or technically needed to know, but they needed to tell. You’ll hear them whispering to each other. They will quickly silence themselves, sensing your presence almost immediately, but be sneaky and you may hear some of their conversations. But please, be careful. And keep in mind, there is no such thing as a voice without a body.

My doctor said it was tinnitus but I like your explanation better.
