Muffled hearing can come about gradually or suddenly, depending on the underlying problem. There is a small tube that connects the middle ear space with the back of the nose and throat. Don’t just assume it’s just ear wax, it could be something far worse. I was so worried my hearing would never return,’ she says. I started to hear a muffled, squeaky noise through my right ear,’ she says. I was in complete panic when I woke up one day in 2010 and everything was awfully quiet. Everything’s coming up roses! This makes everything sound muffled, or as though you are hearing through a fog. For about a year or so, I had listened to my iPod (often on louder volume) while lifting heavy weights at the gym, typically 4-5 days per week. After 4-5 hrs, its the usual ringing sound in the ears which fades away after good night sleep, untill yesterday, I attended an event.
Recently, I felt that my hearing in my left ear was a bit muffled, so I assumed it was earwax buildup. I used one of those earwax melting solutions that you drip into your ear, and it seemed to go too deep into my ear and, despite seeming to come back out, it’s managed to cause my hearing to become quite muffled in that ear. Sounds very similar to what happened to me about a month ago. So the other night i smoked weed with a few of my friends in his basement. I used to smoke weed a lot more often but i hadnt for a couple months. When my hearing comes back everything sounds so far away and muffled. How do you create the sound effect to simulate hearing a sound source from far away through thick walls? Kinda like you would hear stand. To create a muffled sound, you need to alter the equalization of the audio clip. So yes, highs will drop off but you’ll likely need to bump sonewhere between 180 – 400 Hz where there’s a nice resonant quality, just be careful of the 300 Hz muddiness. I’ve used ProTools’ 7-band EQ plugin for replicating sounds coming from inside of a building, and it sounds great.
By this time it had eased off and my hearing had returned to normal. I did use them initially, however I will not the next time if this comes back as I am convinced that prolonged use of these did me more harm than good. I notice that tinnitus and muffle sound become more noticeable when I wake up in the morning and then start to relieve until night. Your post has been the most helpful so far, so thanks for that. For those wondering, well, losing hearing in one ear isn’t so bad right, you still have a good ear, so things should not be too bad, right? Wrong! When you lose your hearing in one ear, it is not silent. It is replaced by a constant whooshing, squealing, white noise that does not go away, and it therefore interferes with the noise coming into your good ear. At the time, I could not get a single doctor to take my hearing loss seriously, and by the time I made it to a competent ENT almost a week later, it was too late. Doc told me if I hadn’t come back in I probably would have died. It was far, far, too late. Has anyone else noticed muffled call quality coming from the earpiece of their iPhone 6 Plus? Also, I’ve got to hold the phone in just the right spot. My iPhone 5s had much louder earpiece sound. Most reviews I’ve read say how loud the earpiece is, so mine must be defective because I can barely hear it. Good luck and i’m sure everything will work out.
Muffled Hearing, Only In One Ear
So i went to a shooting range yesterday, and stupidly didnt wear hearing protection. But sometimes i dont notice it at all, like it goes away and comes back, but part of that might be mental. My mom who scuba dives a lot said she gets the same type of thing that has lasted a couple days, where there is unequal pressure, and things sound muffled, like you’re listening through a door, and there is a buzzy sound to a lot of noises. 3 days ago I was struck, open palm, directly on my ear, very hard. I’ve noticed the same muffled sound in the hurt ear, while the OTHER ear has become EXTREMELY sensitive to any sort of rumbling, bass, or low tones. The damaged ear is not hearing as well, so your brain is really noticing the sounds coming in from the good ear. Try explaining to your brain that it is great to notice all of those sounds, that one day soon your hearing will be balanced again, and everything will be back to normal. As a result, hearing out of the affected ear is muffled. Also, when I am walking and I put pressure on my left foot, I hear a slight, muffled pop or thht sound in the ear. When I did, the clogged feeling went away and I could hear everything loud and clear! Seems it was just a wax problem after all. She told me that she wasn’t going to give me antibiotics because she’s certain I don’t have an infection, I’m just teething as my wisdom tooth is trying to come through, but the clogged ear wax is obvioulsy causing the pain in my right ear and it’s the eustachian tube that’s inflamed and not my glands, which again the gum inflammation is pressing on the clogged ear wax which were in clumps!! And affecting everything. Also, I can no longer sing in church as my muffled voice sounds so loud in my head that I can’t hear the tune. Other symptoms, which may or may not be related, include ringing in the ears, mainly at night before I fall asleep; and having a small lump in the back of my throat but which never goes away after I swallow. The voices sound far away and I can never tell what they are saying. Sometimes I will hear music too. A while back we had just gotten to bed and I heard music and talking. The kids were outside and the sounds from them was coming from beneath the floor and up my arm into my ear. I never hear ringing so i don’t know if it would be tinnitus either. Ok, in my lifetime this has happened before and usually went away after 12 hours or so. Did I permanently destroy my hearing and end my audio career while recording a one hour club gig? Or is there hope that this loss of hearing in the one ear will come back? This is some REALLY scary stuff here. Or is there hope that this loss of hearing in the one ear will come back?
Eustachian Tube Dysfunction: Blocked Ear? Muffled Hearing? Tinnitus? Ringing? Rumbling Noise? Pain, Pressure Or Fullness Feeling?
I experience a roaring sound and everything sounds far away for about a day ‘before’ a migraine so it is definitely not due to any medications. my husband says that i get very loud (well louder than usual) when i am going to get a migraine. everything seems so far away. i haven’t taken anything yet either. For me, it’s accompanied by a faint, far-away, whistling sound, and all the noise around me sounds ‘muffled’. To best describe my lead up symptoms, first my hearing is affected. I have call recorder on my phone, when someone complains about they cannot hear me i just cut the phone and ring back, but a few times i cut it right away when they cant hear me and i listen back to the recorded call and i can hear myself fine on there??? so why cant they hear me? I got a call from the local phone repair shop to go collect my other samsung device, and soon as they rang me they were like hello hello, and when i went instore i asked did you have trouble hearing me they said yes, i asked would i need to get this booked in too for repairs, answer was yes and for free as its still under samsung warranty. It works fine when on speakerphone, but if I try to talk normally with the phone to my ear, half the time people have issues hearing me. So now if I try to use the bluetooth, I sound far away. But for those in the UK, social noise is now a far greater threat than noise at work: the European commission says that one in five young people is exposed to potentially damaging loud sounds during their leisure time. And if you’re in a noisy environment, don’t be tempted to keep turning up your volume; it’s better to use noise cancelling headphones so you shut out external noise and don’t need to turn your music up too loud. The Guardian back to top. Result: both ears rang for a day or so, now it is just my left ear. Everything seems loud in that ear. Having trouble hearing high pitched sounds like beeping, etc in my left ear. I’m fixated on this and fearful that it won’t ever go away. Then when I started getting better, it took a back-burner position, but I wanted to come back and tell people how this has turned out so far, so that maybe someone else can benefit, and to give thanks to those of you who were nice enough to help.
I woke up on Wednesday with a muffled sensation in my right ear, like I couldn’t hear properly. I’ve been using the Olive Oil since Thursday, and tbh it hasn’t made any difference Im going away on 1st March, so ideally would like to get it sorted before then. I’ll be so relieved when I get my hearing back! I can hear a distant hissing/fuzzing sound in the ear which is also really annoying. Thanks for all the advice so far. I felt disoriented, my head was a bit stuffy, and things didn’t sound quite right. Nothing muffled. I know sometimes I sound like a real BABY but the fears are real and they make me sleepless at night. I cannot remember EVER having muffled ears with a cold before so I started to get worried. The next day after I woke up, I noticed my hearing was somewhat uneven again, my right ear being more blocked than the other. Then i had a bit of a cold again and what should come back the ear thing. They had a hard time hearing me. My voice would sound muffled and faint. So I also did a factory reset (Menu Settings Back up and reset Factory data reset). 2-3 mins into a call, the person on the other end says my voice sounds like i am walking away from the phone and can only hear every other word, if at all. Thank you! I did not issue the wipe data/factory reset command thought out of fear I would loose everything on my phone. I just finished my 5 day course of zithromax. I noticed these symtoms coming on slowly after taking two 250mg.z-paks back to back.what can i do to reverse or stop this?please help if you can. Hearing people or atmosphere sounds like the television was so awful; everything and everyone seemed so far away. Also i am Hearing muffled, i. I hope Google can come up with a resolution soon. Very annoying especially since everything else about the phone is wonderful. My wife has complained that I sound muffled and far away from day one.
