I used to irrigate my own ears at home and I can't do that anymore. It probably did a decent amount of damage to my ears. Candling is even less safe.

 

Or as the Simpson's would put it, "a doctor of the head holes". biggrin.gif

every once in awhile, I'll still stick a Q tip inside the ear canal because I want it to be dry earlier, but most of the time I don't ONLY because I know I'm not suppose to.  This reminds me of my volume issue, I listen at lower volume, but every once in awhile I'll crank it up a little just to just enjoy a brief moment of excitement. It's hard to break a habit after you have done it for so long.  I also try to not listen to headphone right after I shower to give it some time to dry up as I would imagine an enclose ear with moisture is an invitation for bacteria.

Sorry to hear about bareyb's situation. Some of the discussion in here worries me because, while I don't listen to anything at very high volumes, I do use Q-tips daily and I often sleep with foam earplugs. Lord knows where my ear health must be headed.

In that case you can probably go to a doctor and have your ears cleaned. Or even buy ear drops (for daily cleaning and not impact wax...id let a doctor deal with the impact wax personally).

Depending on how you use q-tips though, it can push more wax deeper into your ears from what ive heard. I could be completely wrong though.

You can actually get some horn kits for a few hundred bucks that will outporform speaker 10x their price. Just gotta be able to slap 'em together.

Haha yes back to the actual topic.

I don't listen to as much music through headphones as I used to. Most of my job involves driving around so if I'm listening to music, its through speakers.

But I too am looking to eventually invest in a set of good desktop speakers for low volume listening (I live in a condo) but also sound great loud.
