The sound he is hearing is the sound generated by the inner ear. It is usually inaudible as they are masked by external sounds which are amplified 23 times by the ossicles in the middle ear. When you start losing your hearing you start gradually noticing the inner sound as a high pitched hum which gets progressively louder as the hearing worsens. So... Get his hearing tested and go in for a good pair of RIC type hearing aids from Widex with the Zen programs

Hello, Tinnitus is the perception of noise or ringing in the ears. It can be subjective or objective.Tinnitus with the underlying cause should be evaluated first , For many people, hearing worsens with age, usually starting around age 50. Hearing loss can cause tinnitus. Take him to ENT specialist .
