So, for the last three or so months, I've been a little deaf in one

from both ears together to help discriminate speech from background.

I had some of that recently as well, left ear completely blocked
leaving me deaf as a post on that side.

Of course, my desk sits against the wall on the right, so people
approach me from the left. This is a less than optimal arrangement.

The complete lack of concentration caused by *everything* sounding
a bit off was weird, but easily fixed with music on headphones and
the balance slider set halfway to the left.
