Earbud wounded me

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Everything is my fault. I have a Phillips SHE3000 that I've been using for more than 6 months now, and I like the sound and how sturdy it is, so sturdy in fact that the first thing that gave up on me was the foam of the earbuds. One of them came out first, then I decided to remove the other one too since it was on its way out. Now that leaves the metal parts. I thought the sound was still good so I still used them. Earlier, I took it out so I can use it with the computer when I suddenly noticed something one one of the earbuds: blood. Blood on the metal. I instinctively put my hand over my ear and sure enough, there was coagulated blood. I removed it, and the blood started pouring again. I think the metal gave me this wound, as I am prone to twisting the earbuds when it's in my ears.  Any of you have a wound in the ear before? It's just located right before the inner ear, it won't stop bleeding, how can I fix it? I'm bleeding as I type. I applied alcohol with tissue but it is still bleeding.

Since I'm replying to a 9 hour old thread I can only hope that you havn't died of blood loss. 

 

If you're still bleeding, just apply pressure to the wound. 

If the bleeding has stopped, your body will probably fix itself. 

 

I would throw away those earbuds and get new ones... or even better; take a photo of the earbuds, a photo of yourself (and your blood-soaked ear) in a near-dead state, and send it in an email to Philips, describing your brush with 'death' and how you somehow managed to escape his grasp, no thanks to your SHE3000. 

You will either get an apology from Philips or a rude email from a customer service intern telling you not to put broken things in your ear.

 

Either way, good luck.

1* that wouldn't be recommended

2* probably this one.

 

if you like those earbuds, get some foam for 0.1 cents from somewhere. if you want to upgrade, try iem's. But first, and before anything else, let the wound heal itself. Don't force it to bleed even more

Yeah, it was my bad. I guess being a cheapskate finally found a way to haunt me, and it was all my fault. I like adjusting my earbuds in position, so that probably did it. Nope, I'm not sending them anything, and yeah, thank goodness the bleeding stopped.

I bought me some new earbuds that came with foams, so I'll use those with the Phillips. I think it healed now.

 

Lesson learned, I'll never make this stupid mistake again.
