Just looked it up. Shat has two versions - in one, it was an explosion on the set of the episode "Arena", in the other it was on the set of one of the movies - but either way, he does have tinnitus, but his acting has actually improved markedly since the old days on TOS, so it's not to blame.

(He does, however, mention having been driven to suicidal thoughts by the unstoppable noise, something with which I can definitely sympathize...)
