OK, I just thought this was amusing and might actually help someone..
I was sat listening to my rig today and something felt wrong....I couldn't quite put my finger on it but that "veil" that folks love to talk about appeared to be sliding down over the music..

I'd also been feeling a little stuffy of late as if i was developing a cold, so I pinched my nose and forced pressure through my ears, the way you do to help against cabin pressure when decending during a flight. Low and behold, a little crackle in my ears was heard and suddenly the veil lifted and the music sounded great again...
Guess it's time for an ear rinse...

yeah, I know that.
It's horrible when you sit in a class and you try to rest and you do 'the nose tweak' and suddenly the teachers voice get amplified

Then you do the reverse nose tweak, where you hold your nose and close your mouth and try to inhale (think negative pressure). Makes the lecture quieter so you can sleep.

LOL! That sounds more like suicide, though I've had those thoughts in lectures when I was younger...
