Is he taking Tylenol/acetaminophen currently? Enough of it will make my ears ring. 

Someone moved my effing cheese.

When I get a buildup of wax my ears ring. Flushing with a bulb syringe & warm water fixes it. Also, loud music will cause tinnitus.

Tylenol type products will cause ringing.  I also dealt with/am dealing with ear ringing and partial hearing loss due to a course of antibiotics I took a few months ago.

Believe it or not, I had tinnitus for years! It went away when I eliminated corn from my diet. I was doing an elimination diet for other health issues, but surprisingly the ringing stopped, too!

While it doesn't cause tinnitus, caffeine is notorious for exacerbating it.  


Using headphones can exacerbate it as well.


I have terrible ringing in my ears, a veritable symphony of high pitched and low sounds.  Caffeine is the primary irritator for me, though it never goes away.
