my ears seem to ring whenever I'm close to a monitor or a TV that has just been turned on. It doesn't seem to happen everytime but it happens most often I turn on this monitor.

As far as loud music I used to have some speakers in my last car but I got rid of them when I bought my new one. It doesn't have that great of a sound system and I don't own a home sound system. This has been happening all my life... since way before I was exposed to loud noises for extended periods. I've just noticed recently it happens mostly when something like a TV turns on and I am near it.

Sounds like tinnitus. I get it all the time, 10 years djing in clubs has left me with constant ringing in my ears, it gets higher frequency next to monitors. You just get used to it after a while. Unless you think about it, you can ingnore it.
always thought djs with ear plugs, looked like wimps, so i never bothered. the benefit of hindsight

Is the ringing in your ear sound like a sharp tone for a few seconds, like when the tv has no program with the coloured bars "deeeeeet" ???
When i was young, my friend told me that his mom told him, when you hear that "ringing sound" it means someone is talking about you.

Let me ask you this, when a TV turns on right? What kind of TV, the old ''big'' ones?
Because I noticed (and my hearing is quite well) that I can hear a high-pitch tone whenever an old TV is turned on (and some other equipment makes it as well). Now there's a difference between the ''ear ringing'' and that sound, because whenever I have that ringing ear stuff, I find it impossible to localize it, or if It comes from a direction it turns out that it comes out of ''thin air''.
