I know I am going deaf from playing my music and headset too loud for many years. But I find after a few hours of recording with a headset on and even with it off, I have an extremely clogged ear feeling in both ears. I spend the next day yawning constantly to get it to pop but it never seems to work. Any suggestions here?
A lot of monitoring can be done at low volume, maybe try that. And then get your hearing checked, it’s very valuable and we should all take good care of it.
Same here. I try to clean my ears a couple of times per year using a ear wax flush kit and that seems to help.
I use closed back headphones and they get warm inside after a few hours. Do open back designs breathe better ?
Open back designs are definitely better for longer sessions.
Just try to set some kind of timer to remind you to take a break every 30 mins or so so you don’t get ear fatique.
I played in bands since I was 12 years old and honestly the most damage I did to my hearing was as recording engineer, even the loud concerts and practices didn’t do so much damage as mixing for 8-12 hours on the clock at moderate levels.
Yes, It is definitely the headset is the problem.
I tried that this morning and yes, it helps. I think the problem with is some kind of damage to the ear and for me it is probably less to do with wax.
