depends on the cause of the tinnitus.  if it's due to a lesion in the VIIIth
nerve, or somewhere else along the pathway that ABR covers, then certainly
one might see objective verification of the tinnitus.  if it's central
(quite high up) in origin, then it would not be picked up by the ABR, of course.

btw, it's nice to see you again, sharmala!  i hope you are doing well. :)
