Go on Ebay and get you one of those Japanese ear picks. (just do a search for "ear pick" and they'll come up). Very cheap and they are like little scoops. I got one and used it on the husband, who didn't even know he had buildup. A few little digs and WHOA. He pulled out this chunk of wax/hair/crud that was about the length of the tip of to the top joint of my pinky finger. Nasty yet fascinating.
He didn't notice any hearing difference (wtf, I don't see how he couldn't) but he did notice that the next time he got a cold, his ears weren't stopped up anymore.
Maybe you'll get something similar to this
