I just wanted to ask if any of the Headphone nuts here every get recurring ear problems from listening to their phones? Other than occasional and scary "ear ringing" for example.
I've switched back to my HD595s today for the sake of comfort, and because both my right, and now my left ear have been getting plugged / achey a lot this week. My theory is that, phones insulate and "heat up" your ears, and possibly promote movement of wax to places it might not normally go. Also, the circular design of the HE-400s may be applying more force to my lower ear (the cartiledge spots near the lobe).
Chances are, I need to take a long headphone break. But I have not been at extreme volumes. But both my ears are complaining.
