Title says it all. my right ear is going deaf and I don't know what to do about it. SEARCH brought up that it's psychoacoustics (Left side seems louder, isn't) and improper imaging, so would kickpanels help?

no kickpanels won't fix your hearing maybe a hearing aid also it might help to turn it down a little bit just take it easy and relax enjoy your music before you can't

BTW: i've heard that if you donate your rockford t3000.1 to a member on hear named 'decipha' that perhaps your hearing will get better

try messing around with polarity, balance, and time alignment. if that doesnt help with your current install, then you can try kickpods. if that doesnt help, then youre probably deaf in your right ear.

That *****! For the rest of us, what setup caused your deafness in your ear?

hi
i also have the same problem, my ear constantly ringing (mildy), it hapen after listoning to distorted sounds for long on a new 5.25 coaxial speakers 2years ago.

some times we dont tend to realize how easy it is to loss hearing, u do it every day again and again.then one day it happens with very litle warring..
one advice....reduce cluding and loud arenas by at least 80%, turn down the highs on ur speaker,
tune ur set up for a more natural soud.........no loud highs e.g snares, high hats etc

There is no trick to losing hearing, you listened to the music too loud. If anything you'd want to attenuate the 1k area, becauset that's where the human ear is the most sensative. My rule is, if you can't comfortably talk to the person next to you, it's too loud.

I lost some hearing, mostly from drumming and having **** guitarists turning their **** amps up too loud, that and going to shows and standing in front of the speakers where they blast the mids at 130db's

I thought I was going to go deaf at a concert last year. Not so much from the music, more from the SCREAMING! My ears were ringing for days. OUCH!

if your ears are ringing you damaged them, I know

i have hearing loss sensitivity in my left ear. my friend shot his .45 right next to my ear the bastard.. he's luccy he's one of my very close friends. when i snap my finger in my left ear it sounds like i need to raise the higher frequencies in my brain's EQ. i guess its better than having a constant ring in my ear.. i cant imagine how that would be like.. i think i would literally go crazy slapping my head trying to make it go away the ghetto way.

No hearing loss here but I think my stereo is to blame for my erectile dysfunciton...

My grandma went deaf in both of her ears for 30 years. She said the ringing was so bad sometimes she would fall on the ground crying and she thought about killing herself all the time. She had surgery on one of them so she can hear ok out of one, but its hard for her to participate in a large conversation and when she hears noises she can't tell which direction it came from.

my ears are under constant attack and usually I don't realize it. half the time its playing music either playing my drums aor guitar which are loud, if its not that its my car but thats mostly 40hz damage, others include grinders jigsaws sawzalls air tools hammering lawnmowers and weed eaters all damaging my hearing more and more

I got four mounted tweeters in the front of my car so I know how bad those high snares can hit the ears ( probably should turn em down ) and I have had countless amounts of SPL blasted at me so I have probably done some reasonable ear damage myself, but I accept it and know that it is just part of car audio if you take it to the extreme like I and probably 90% of the people on this forum have done

there is no way speakers can even begin to reproduce the tru crack of a snare, my rimshots can kill small children at 50 paces,

Go see a doctor and get your hearing checked out....could just be a big gob of ear wax that needs draining...no pun intended

Well, it's none of the above. Basically, a long drive with loud music and improperly tuned gains. My hearing came back, but I haven't gone near the same volume level since. :hide:

For the curious: Alpine CDA 9807 / Rainbow SLC 6.5s + PPI PCX 280 / two IA 187 12s + Orion 1200. The problem I've learned is that the Rainbows are just incredibly efficient for comps. To the point where the gain on the PPI is as low as it can possibly go, and I still can't go much higher than 20 / 35 on my HU. I have thought about running them off HU power just to see if it helps.

Yeah I have problems hearing out of my right ear from marching snare and not using anykind of ear protection. I started using those little "hearos" things for when I marching and play set. Chief
