I like my headset BECAUSE I have hearing loss. I've lost 40% of my hearing due to surgeries and other nastiness, so it helps to have the headset on which helps block outside sound plus an adjustible volume. :)

I have a bit of hearing loss, for sure. Not only do I use gaming headphones, but I mix/master/compose/record/engineer music as well. Hearing's definitely gone to ****.

I got ringing in my ears, mostly my left ear. Its pretty loud. In the daytime when I'm up I dont really notice it. When I got to bed at night its there, but I guess I'm so used to it, it doesnt really effect me. It does effect my hearning though, on my left ear, if the sound is low enough on those tests I can't hear it cause my own ringing is louder.

But if keep stuff at reasonable levels you should be ok. Also, if your just listening to game sounds, sometimes if you turn up loud, but just leave it arond your neck, you can hear the sounds pretty well. I usually do that after extended gaming sessions when I just don't want a headset on anymore. Its still quiter then using the tv speakers if your trying to be quiet.
