Lol, "sounds" nasty.
It cleared up like two days later, seems fine now. However, I may be getting a better job soon, so I may finally have enough money for my general health beyond just sleep and a balanced diet. I'm not sure I'll learn much new though...
I asked about it before when I was younger and under my mom's health insurance, the doctor (general physician) said that if my ear was damaged I would have these problems more often and take longer to return to normal. At that time, they didn't even prescribe any medicine... They just used a massive blunt syringe to flush my ear out with water, which dislodged the wax plug – a decent sized chunk – and suddenly I could hear great.
Now, some earwax is normal and we need some earwax, and in my case it just happens occasionally (maybe once a year) due to (iirc) an inner ear infection (like a pimple). The infection has to heal first, and if my ear stays clogged for a few days I have my own syringe built-for-purpose that jets out water at an angle (so as to not squirt directly at the eardrum).
I'm still pining for my MIA Crossfade LPs, I think they were a good compliment to my somewhat cold headphones I had last year, but now that I have a different pair of home headphones I bought used and feel quite happy with, I wonder if I wouldn't be better off with M-80's as a portable closed headphone for commuting. Sadly, I haven't really been able to audition them because the display model at the local RadioShack had been broken by "customers," but I also don't know which will feel better between the M-80 and LP worn around the neck or on the ears since the new display model M-80 is securi-tied to the headphone stand (making it impossible to put them on). Anyone have impressions comparing fit of M-80 and Fullsize LP or M-100 earpads? Are the M-80 earpads really as stiff/hard as the sketchy display model in my RadioShack?
And, my thoughts for Val:
More comfortable to wear = wear more often = enjoy product more. Kinda like "the best camera is the camera you have with you."
