For some months it seems that I can hear extreme details in sounds and music. I hear each Instrument separatly, I can hear flaws in dynamic or eq treatments, I hear bad edits, reverb and delay fx. And this is a wonderful thing!
On the other hand I feel extremely under stress and my ears hurt when I get into crowds of people (e.g. Subway in rush hours, loud Moments in a cinema...).
Sometimes my right ear feels as if it blocks the loud Atmo by closing my ear (feels like water in ear) but my doctor did not find anything, my ears are perfectly fine. She told me that the effect can appear when I overload my ear.
I use a very low monitoring level with my nearfields! Also I do regular biobreaks and monitor switching to refresh my ears!
Do some of you experience something else? It feels like my ears became more sensitive!
