If there are pictures postet around here, you almost exclusivly see that people are using near field monitors.
Personally I suffer from Tinnitus in 3 different frequencies, which I almost certanly got from playing in Punk Bands for years. My hearing is general is pretty good, but the tinnitus and a general pretty fast ear fatique bothers me.
I would like to know, what other music making people experienced in this regard and what could be done to avoid further harm.
I have adam a5x nearfield monitors, and I think they are problematic. It´s not the volume it´s more some kind of frequencies which lead to ear fatique I think. Or Maybe it´s the fact, that near field monitors directly penetrating your ears. For me it´s way less problematic to hear produced music on Floor Standers that say Eurorack stuff on Near Fields. Why might that be?
I´m thinking of switching from Near Field Monitors to Hifi Floorstanders which are positioned to fill the room and not just the stereo triangle.
Any thoughts and experience?
