You mentioned you have tinnitus. Does it affect your work? I also produce and recently developed tinnitus and some high frequency hearing loss. Any advice for working with imperfect hearing?

Don't panic, rest your ears and wait to adjust to your new internal acoustics.

Our hearing is constantly changing as we age but our perception compensates too. Just as you would take a month or so to get used to a new set of speakers or a new studio room so you will adjust to your new internal frequency response.
