It was a few months ago that I was on vacation with my friends. It was more of a staycation. We were chilling by the pool.
There was a small lake in the outskirts and we decided to be a little adventurous and go for a swim.
That’s what we did and blissful is how I’d describe it until something seemed to happen. I am a good swimmer okay?
I’m not professional but well, let’s just say I can swim to save myself. But suddenly I felt like the world was blocked out, and that I was in a tunnel listening to things from far far away.
It was a weird feeling and I started to panic. I made my way to land and sat down on the edge of the lake.
Then I realised that the problem was in my ears. I couldn’t hear the voices of my friends, the lap of the lake, nor the car that had just pulled up nearby. It felt like everything was happening in another Universe.
The Hearing Test in Sydney that followed
I visited a hearing clinic in Australia that provided hearing aid services – Hearing Aids’ Professionals and also had a team of audiometrists who could ascertain what exactly had just happened at the lake. Just a heads up, they even have mobile audiometric testing. I chose to visit the clinic as I wanted to be sure.
The problem happened to be the water. Water had entered my ear and had gone right into the inner ear, thus causing me to feel the sensation of distant speaking.
The audiometrist told me I could simply have the water drained out with an instrument and I could be on my way.
I checked out their services after the Hearing Test in Sydney
These guys have some custom earplugs in Sydney that I needed to buy for the first few nights, so as to not have any exposure to loud noise.
Their products are as good as their services! The custom earplugs in Sydney literally helped me get a good night’s sleep. It blocked out any disturbances.
While checking out their collection I also saw that they have some GN ReSound earplugs for musicians and others who are into the music business.
I picked these up. My friend was ecstatic after his first experience with them. He was telling everyone that the GN ReSound earplugs were what dreams are made of.
I’m actually feeling like an idiot for not availing their mobile audiometric testing. It would have been a cool and convenient experience.
Anyway, that’s all folks. I hope you are doing well and staying safe during the pandemic. I honestly hope your hearing is doing okay. If you feel even the slightest bit of discomfort or you start losing your balance or anything like that, please please reach out to Hearing Aids’ Professionals.
