I’ve been considering getting a hearing test done for a while. I’ve been told that a checkup is good from a health point of view, but also I’ve been thinking for some time that my hearing is unbalanced, with a tendency for the left channel to be somewhat suppressed when listening to music with my audio system.
This article suggests that cleaning the ears of wax doesn’t necessarily enhance auditory acuity, but I’d like to hear for myself.
In New Zealand, however, free hearing test offers have been associated with mis-selling of overly-expensive expensive hearing aids, so I’m a bit wary for now.
But an ear service may be a good ‘upgrade’.
