When I close my left ear with my hand and listen to real life sounds with my right, it sounds like it's underwater And to make it worse, I got hit by a soccer ball in the left side of my face and I think the impact took away a little hearing in my left but I can't tell that well cause I have nothing to compare it with.


I can still hear through both earphones for music though, prolly cause the music coming out of music players is of a relatively low volume.


So anyway, let's discuss the looming perpetual deafness that will plague us all at age 35.


summary: any preventions? cureeezz????

...what's the 60/60 rule?


60% volume you mean? :-o


I think i'm going to reseach a bit on that....I usually hear of hearing loss as being coupled with a "ringing" noise....and I have never had that...

If you are worried that you're having problems with your ears, you should visit a doctor or something.
This fall I was on my 'sesjon' (interviews, IQ test and check up for (at least) mandatory one year military service), and I got the highest grade possible on both my listening and seeing. Didn't get enrolled though, because I had a period of a couple of years with epileptic seizures when I was 10-12.

one of my old roommates is basically deaf in one ear from a busted eardrum, i think? he's had a few surgeries on it, but he has to go again soon. they basically take a piece of skin and make a new eardrum for him, then after a certain period of time, he'll go back so they can attach the bone to the new eardrum. his hearing won't be great, but it will still be a lot better than before.

Are you asking if midgets can draw people that are themselves smaller than the average person, or if midget drawings in general are smaller?

60:60 rule was something I heard of a few times and seems legit. Meaning, don't leave your earphones in longer than 60 minutes, at maximum 60% the mp3's volume capacity.

It's common sense, basically.


Well I'll break it to you then, the bad things about earphones isn't just the volume. It's the fact that the sounds are too close to your eardrums. You will be ruïning your ears no matter what whenever you use them.

edit: and while I'm at it, headphones are the same thing.

I've read that the ringing noise is actually quite normal, everyone can have it.
It SHOULD only occur rarely and last a few seconds or so, if it happens more often and goes on longer that means your hearing is going down the drain.
Or at least that's something I read once somewhere....Yeah, usefull eh?

I, for one, know that, when a medical issue arises, my first instinct is to run to a goddamn internet message board instead of, like, a doctor or someone who knows things.
