A common cause of loud ear ringing is tintinitus. Tintinitus is a temporary ringing of the ears sometimes caused by loud noises, like being in close range to gun shots, or a loud rock concert. It usually goes away in a few days, depending on the severity. Sometimes it lasts for an extended amount of time.
