Seriously, what's up with the driving in silence??
I have tinnitus, constantly ringing ears. Noise of any kind makes it worse.
I cannot say I suffer from it, as it does not hinder me if I focus on something else.
But it makes it harder to enjoy a conversation, or music.

Strangely, listening to music that you know seems to help somewhat.
For me it does not work out - at least not in the car.

Oh, and leaving it off does reduce fuel consumption
