The report shows only Air Conduction values. No details about Bone Conduction and speech audiometry. Otoscope evaluation should be carried, to rule out any other problems in canal and tympanic membrane. Once if above tests are very clear it is easy to come for a conclusion. I advice you to meet an Audiologist to solve the problems. Any doubt feel free to contact. Thank you

Noise in the ear is called tinnitus, is due to the hearing nerve stimulation in the absence of any real sound stimulation.remedy for this is to find out the location, cause of the hearing damage and treat accordingly.as per the reports attached it shows sensory and neural involvement.kindly consult an audioloist to find the location of the damage in the hearing pathway to proceed further. Thank you..
