How to Improve your Hearing in 15 Minutes


Is you’re hearing not what it used to be? Do you suffer from blocked ears? Do you regularly use earplugs or headphones?

If so, like a lot of musicians, you’re probably in need of an ear check-up.

To put this to the test, last week we invited ear specialists Auris Ear Care to do a take a look at our team’s auricular assets.

Some of the results were surprising – a few members of the team who thoughts their ears would need a declutter found that they had perfectly clear canals. But our team members who most regularly use headphones and earplugs (like drummers and electronic artists) needed a thorough clean.

For those of us who needed the clean, Auris Ear Care’s technique of microsuction was quick and effective, removing excess wax with minimal pain and none of the mess that comes with a typical ear syringing procedure. For those who’s ears were blocked, the transformation was instant: our Head of Artist Relations Jonny said: “I was able to hear high end frequencies which previously were completely muffled”.

If you’re in need of an ear wax removal in London, look no further than Auris Ear Care.
