Is there any evidence that NAC lowers testosterone?

Where did you hear this to begin with? It seems like there is some evidence it can prevent the disruption of steroid production from certain toxins, etc....I've never heard it would reduce test?

I mean if you really hate your balls, go for it. But, what did they do to you?

Testosterone isn't the signaling they are talking about.
This effect seems to be typical of strong antioxidants - even a large dose of vitamin C seems to have this effect. Anything that decreases inflammation, like ibuprofen or aspirin, will also have similar effects.
Quite frankly I wouldn't worry about it much at all, but you could avoid using NAC within a couple hours of your workout.

On the other hand, arachadonic acid works off the reverse of the same principle - it increases the inflammatory response, and most people say it is very effective for a natural strength builder.

Never heard anything like that. What's your source?

When it comes to NAC, I feel the benefits outweigh any cons that could be associated and I have yet to hear of any that would sway me from keeping this as a staple.

The reason I take NAC is to help with tinnitus and hearing protection. (Studies shown to prove this). So I don’t take it pre or post workout per say, but once in the morning and one at night. Do you think it would interfere with gains taken in this manner?

Of course not.
Let me just say that even if there was some minor evidence that NAC was associated with a negligible lowering of test, there isn't a single person on this board that would be able to notice this. You will see a bigger impact with a single restless night of sleep.
