But am I left-eared too? Lately I've felt like I hear everything relative to my left ear. I worried that it might actually be hearing loss in my right ear, but when I make sounds in one ear at time, they seem the same. I can still hear the squeal of a TV's picture tube with either ear, and those high frequencies would be the first to go if I was experiencing hearing loss. So I don't think it's that. But it just seems like my brain has chosen to pay more attention to the left ear when it has signals from both available to it. Yet I have no problem locating sounds. And stereo effects in headphones work fine.
The brain is a weird thing.
If it IS hearing loss, I can probably blame that civil war reenactment. :-P I'm not a concert-goer or anything. I wonder if there have been any studies on the effect of constant low-decibel noise (such as computer fans and hard drives) on the ear over extended periods of time (like 5 years). Sitting near computers as a lifestyle is going to prove to be unhealthy in SOME way, I'm sure. :) And I don't mean in terms of lack of exercise or carpal tunnel or sore behinds.
