This sounds like a 'tic' reflex in one of the muscles in the middle
ear....similar to what is experienced in the eyelid or finger but generated by
the high pitched sounds you describe.
I have had the same sensation for years when a shower is running and my head is
turned a certain way.....it is interesting, and I tried looking it up via the
literature but found nothing.
I do not believe it is clinical significant, only of interest as an isolated
