...in some cases even the planets and the entire solar system vibrates at a certain range
...if you had crazy superhuman hearing you probably could even hear the background radiation from the time when the galaxies were first formed. At least some of those sounds my not all be in your head. Or who knows, just saying you know.
eta: you can actually pick up some people's tinnitus by shoving a really sensitive microphone in their ear. Never tried it with mine.

My wife and I were both front people of our own bands for years. Her music was more pop-like and mine was pure metal. Guess who ironically got the constant ringing ears?
I do get it occasionally some nights but she has it 24-7 and pretty bad. She's learned to cope with it for the most part but some days it seems to get to her more.
One trick I learned for mine that works most of the time is yelling in my head at the same pitch of the ringing until I drown it out with my "brain voice". After I quit yelling at that pitch, the ringing of that pitch is also gone. I go through all the pitches of the ringing one by one until it's all gone. Doesn't always work but it does the trick most of the time.
If mine was a proper chord, it wouldn't be so bad. But it's dissonant as can be.
This stuff may be also somewhat internal interpretation of the brain.
