Do you think 2 weeks is a long enough tolerance break off of loud speakers?

Is 2 weeks is a long enough tolerance break off of loud speakers(just 2 KRK 8s)? I've cleaned my ears out a few times as well, I've regained hearing up to ~19K from before ~16.5K on the worst day when I decided to test it and scared myself with the extent of the damage, and made me decide to give my ears a few weeks to heal. It's like my mind healed as well, I swear I regained a bit of my mental capacity too.

But I'm afraid(and know) the SPL will just ramp up again though, so I'm hesitant to go back to them. Thoughts?

I'm never sure if you are trolling or not.

Give it 2-3 years for your ears to recover and sell your KRK's because they are the problem here

To the best of my knowledge ears only take a day or two to recover from exertion.

Typically any loss in hearing after that is permanent.

Don't crank your fuckin speakers jeez

Do you even break in monitors (facing each other, one of them with phase reversed)?
Or do you even doing it wrong?

I run pink noise through the monitors as loud as the system will push it, while wearing my tin foil hat in the dark.

I wondered for like 6 seconds then I realized that in either case the proper response was insult.

I get my head in between my monitors(with muffs but still) and sometimes the physical contact damages the cone, is that what you mean? Basically the way I look at is that ears are like cunts; I have big floppy elephant labia from all the self-abuse.

I have a bad habit of double shitposting, sorry. It's not really related to this but I always sneeze 2 or 3 times for some reason, never once; is this because of all the childhood vibrator abuse(and corresponding fucked up D3 receptor regulation abnormality)I went through?
