My ipod is making me deaf
Seriously, I think I might be causing some serious harm to my ear drums. Perhaps someone else is familiar with this complaint. I had the ipod earphones that came with the thing, and they died shortly after. Of course. Then, I got the $85 dollar ones that go into your ears. I promptly dropped the extra 2 sets of buds on Hastings Street never to be seen again. Then I tried them out. I thought they sucked for the longest time, sounding primarily tinny, and completely lacking in bass. Then, I discovered the only way to make them work is to bloody cram the things in there, creating the necessary seal blah blah blah......and still everytime you moved your head or yawned, the buggers popped out!
So I'm dealing with them mostly 'cause I want my moneys worth.
But I'm starting to think that all is not well. I know that my hearing is going.
The 2 loudest shows ever encountered:
Dinosaur Jr on the Green Mind tour back in the late 80's
Broadcast at the All Tomorrow's Parties festival in the UK 2001.
Either way, it's happening, and I guess I'll just roll with it.
In the meantime, how to solve the headphones dilemma?
