Alright, not exactly a Sound Design question but I don't think there is a forum having to do with ears and the people on it possibly wouldn't understand my question so please bear with me:
Have you ever worried about one of your ears being less sensitive than the other?
What is the best way to test if one ear reacts different than the other when listening?
For example, from time to time I think I notice a drop in high-end in my right ear compared with my left, but I flip on an oscillator and send it soaring high up to about 17-18K and can still hear it off the speaker and headphone in my right ear. It gets to the point where I am running off a mix in headphones and I think it's left-heavy just because of my hearing but I switch around the phones and it's because the mix was left-heavy. I've also thought that I was perceiving more high-end on the left of the mix because my Pro Tools keyboard/monitor cart sits to my left while I mix so maybe it's the resultant early refs I get from the screen.
I have taken hearing tests and passed with flying colors but it still irks me that one ear might be different than the other.
Is this something to be worried about? What's the best way to test? What are your thoughts?
