Dizziness often starts in the inner ear. Not only are balance and hearing linked, but pressure can build up in the ear triggering dizziness. Instead of waiting for the feeling of dizziness, you can learn how to combat it by taking better care of your ear.
What Can Lead to Dizzy Ears?
Everything that leads to a feeling of dizziness in the ear is avoidable, so knowing what causes dizzy ears will help you successfully prevent the sensation.
Unhygienic Ear Conditions.
Your ear can easily become a breeding ground for bacteria. Water, moisture, and sweat cause bacteria to grow in the ear. Moisture and sweat often build up because of the use of headphones, which make it easier for the ear to sweat and moisture to build up -- the result is an ear infection.
Wearing headphones also stops the ear from experiencing vital ventilation necessary for earwax to remain soft and escape the ear, causing the earwax to harden, leading to infection, a burning sensation, or temporary hearing loss.
Long-Term In-Ear Headphone-Wearing Can Cause Burning and Ringing in Ears.
But headphones don't only contribute to dizzy ears because they cause bacteria to build up in the ear, but also because of the volume of music, you're being subject to for long periods.
Listening to music through in-ear and on-ear headphones causes tinnitus (ringing in ears) to develop because it damages the tiny hairs in the inner ear that are responsible for the sound you hear.
How to Fix Dizzy Ears?
Since earphones are the heart of your experience with dizzy ears, the best way to fix dizzy ears is to change the way you listen to music. This doesn't mean you have to stop listening to music, but rather, find more ear-friendly headsets.
Plug-free headset design can provide excellent hygiene for ears.
Bone conduction headphones are the best way to enjoy music while protecting your ear hygiene. The reason they're ideal is that they don't cover the ears rather, they deliver sound by transmitting vibrations through bones in the head and jaw directly to the inner ear.
This means that your ear remains open and well-ventilated, preventing bacteria growth and earwax buildup.
Prevent eardrums hurts from high music volume.
There's another benefit of using bone conduction headphones. Your ears will not be subject to the high volumes associated with wearing in-ear and on-ear headphones. Instead, bone conduction does not transmit music through the eardrum but directly into the ear. This means that your ear never experiences additional pressure or strain from loud noise, ensuring you never experience ringing in ear or any dizziness as a result of loud noises.
