Be careful you don't poke them in too far otherwise it could end up being the worst hifi downgrade ever.

Just don't put them in your ears. Seriously, you shouldn't put anything in your ears and there is no need to.

RE: Best Hi-Fi upgrade ever.

I think the last two I used are still in there ... amongst other things.

Must be a cavernous space between my ears.

Jesus man do not recommend people stick things in their ears, doing that regularly will damage your ears, and more than likely compact the gunk in there even more, this post should be removed.

I was told by ENT Consultant that "nothing smaller than your elbow should be put in your ear".

Serious damage can be done by using these cotton buds.

RE: Best Hi-Fi upgrade ever.

I'm starting to get a bit worried reading this thread. Sad

I use earbuds every day to stop the Comply foam tips on my earphones from getting dirty.

If I stopped using earbuds to clean my ears I'd have to start using regular rubber tips on my earphones instead because they're easier to clean when they get waxy.

RE: Best Hi-Fi upgrade ever.

Thanks for the tip Steve.  I'll retire the wire brush and Dettol in that case now.   Smile

Ooops. :oops:

I ment to say I use "cotton wool buds" to clean my ears. Not "ear buds".

RE: Best Hi-Fi upgrade ever.

Using cotton buds to clean ears is dangerous.  It compacts some of the wax causing it to harden and increasing the risk of infection.  There is also the danger of going too far in and perforating an ear drum.

The only way to get rid of excess wax is to consult your GP who will be able to give you some drops to soften the wax and then syringe your ears.

Back to simplicity, focus on what matters - Rega RP3/Elys2/TTPSU- Denon DCD720AE - Denon PMA720AE - Wharfedale Diamond 220

Syringing is now out of favour.  Many GPs and Practice Nurses prefer to wash out ears with a flow of water under lesser pressure than syringing.  Another way is to vacuum the excessive wax out....I kid you not!
