Clearing ears makes me hear high frequencies amazingly good in one ear?


#1

So first of all, I know that clearing your ears too much can make your eardrum go weak if you do it for a long time. I had my hearing tested on this a while ago, and luckily I didnt have any issues with pressure and the Eustachiustube. My left ear is my ‘bad’ ear for higher frequencies (over 10k). However, when I clear my ears I hear frequencies for some reason I wasnt able to hear before for a while with my left ear, and then after a few minutes it becomes bad again (and I can hear it ‘close’ again). Is this a sign that the haircell nerves that perceive the high freqs are still somewhat intact, but that the problem is some air/pressure-related issue in my left ear? Might be a bit nonsense-question but I work in the musicbusiness professionaly and every frequency counts.

This might be a really stupid question, but what do you mean by “clearing” your ears?

The strange thing is that my Eustachian tube got tested at the ENT (through a process called tympano metry I believe) and they said it was ok. I did see a diagram of my ear (something like this :http://redeyespy.blogspot.nl/2011/11/your-audiology-tutorial-tympanometry.html) I dont know if it would help if I would post that of my ear and someone can give me some more information?
In any case my ENT told me my earpressure was alright so…

And yeah Im aware of the last t, hearing gets worse by the age naturally. I just hope that wont happen in a long time or when it does happen, I would not mind if I wouldnt notice it and if I can keep enjoying music :smiley:

Its putting 2 fingers on your nose and you breath so that the air is forced to go through your ears.
