Necroing the thread.

I have tinnitus in my right ear, some days it just goes away, others it feels like my ear is actually "full" and I have this persistent whine. Sometimes it makes spaces feel weird (as I hear better from the left). Anyway, I have certified -6/-10dB loss on my right ear at 8kHz (and it is actually around 3dB more sensitive at 250Hz than my other ear). That's life, I don't make a huge deal out of it. It's slightly depressing, as for instance I can only hear hiss (eg. CRT whine) with one ear, but I don't obsess over it. I was wondering, how do you manage hearing imbalance between ears as a sound engineer? I mean, if you have worse treble on one side, how do you esnure that the mix is unbalanced? Do you switch stereo channels every now and then to make sure that stuff is fine?
