So on my hearing aids I swapped my open ear moulds for completely occluding and really tight Microflex moulds. Add Direct Audio Input shoes – microphone disabled – and plug in the Walkman.

That’s put an end to Frosty the F$#*ing Snowman.

Can’t hear anything other than my own choice of music (which today is Gabrieli (Uncle and Nephew), Albinoni, and Monteverdi). As we get closer to christmas I may need to up the sound power and go for Gotterdammerung to drown out the jollity.

My own voice sounds a bit weird though, definitely got occlusion.
