Hi everyone,

A few days ago I got myself an inflammation of the middle ear on both sides, which was the reason I rested my ears a bit for some time and of course went to the doctor. Yesterday, when I listened to some music again, I had a weird experience: Everything I turned on on my PC actually sounded too "high" for me like someone pitched it up. I thought that it were some issues with my soundcard at first, but it's the same when I listen through my Mp3-player. Maybe it's imagination, but everything sounds so off now, it's funny and scary at the same time. Did someone have a similar experience with infections of the ear and the impact on the hearing?

I've heard of the complaint before, and I simply assumed that it was pollution or a change in pressure in the cochlea changing the speed of sound and consequently distributing frequencies along different nerves. I never took the time to think about it properly, though.

There are similar conditions where the same tone is registered as two different frequencies by each ear.
