    Lightbulb Global Silence

    So when global silence is cast, all the sound output is muted on the enemy team, as to be expected, which is really cool.

    I thought a cool addition would be that high pitched "singing" sound that you hear when there is (a flash bang grenade) temporary deafness involved.

    That makes no sense, as it's not suppose to affect the ears. It's silence, not deafness. A lack of sound doesn't make you hear peep sounds.
    Please, just call me buny.

    That ringing sound comes from the pressure wave that blasts your ear drums, causing them to damage a bit and ring. You can still hear, but that ringing is overpowering any other auditory stimulation for a while. Silencer's global silence merely stops sound from from being able to happen, so spells can't be cast, it's not that heroes can't actually hear, there's just no sound around them to hear.

    This.
    If you are deafened it doesn`t mean that there is no sound around you. Your assumption is like saying that the whole world ends every time you close your eyes and then is created from scratch again when you open them.
