I also had this problem several years ago, and my doc removed a good sized hard lump of wax from one of my ears. He used a huge plastic syringe and gently squirted luke warm water into the ear canal until the wax partly broke up and just floated out. It took several syringe fulls of water. His nurse then instructed me on how to do it and gave me the syringe. Happy Listening and Cheers. Craig
Hydrogen peroxide dissolves ear wax! It's a unique experience to say the least. You drop in several drops of hydrogen peroxide in your ear with your head lying sideways on a pillow. After a few seconds you'll hear the bubbling reaction, then you will feel a warmth and oozing feeling as the wax dissolves exothermically, making the liquid in your ear more viscous. Once the reaction has stopped, you can put a cleanex on your ear and turn over, and the "daughter product" will run out (sometimes a Qtip helps here). It is totally safe, though I've been told it isn't as complete a treatment as the medical type and doesn't work in the most extremely ear-clogged cases. Enjoy! I haven't done that for years, but now this makes me want to. Weird, no?!!!
I cant belive you posted this post now! I was just about to post the same thing. I was also wondering why none of the audiophile mags bring up this topic? Seems to me that if your ears dont work, your just thowing money down the drain! It also seems like the cheapest "tweak" you can do to improve sound!!!
Again...weird that you just posted this, and before today I've never seen a post about earwax!!!
