Technology / Home Audio / Ringing: The tendency for any vibrating surface to continue to produce the same frequency. This is limited by the decay time over which the inertia of other forces act to repress the motion. In acoustics, this tendency is known as reverberance. In human physiology, a condition called tinitus causes the sensation of ringing, which is actually a nerve disorder rather than a problem with the ear's mechanism.
