There was a question here a little bit ago asking about ear protection during mixing. A broader question for us all that use our ears for a living is: What do you do to maintain ear health?
Do you go for regular checkups? Clean ears with something specific? Keep ear plugs with you at all times? Do you have an audiologist? Have you insured your ears?
I also have a question specific to myself that maybe some of you have come across. I wear headphones for many hours a day, as well as being on the phone with a headset. My right ear (phone ear) tends to get a "swimmers ear" problem - holds water when I wash my ears, a lot of wax buildup. I feel like the headphones/ear pieces I use don't breathe at all and cause moisture to build up in my ears. Have any of you experienced this from a lot of headphone or in-ear use? Is there anything I can do to prevent it in the future? Are there better headphones that allow air flow?
