Dear readers, When visitors enter -for the first time- our (rather large) anechoic chamber, they are always complaining about the strange 'pressure at their ears'. Similar as listening to 'much out of phase' signals in a stereo loudspeaker set up. People acquainted being now and then in an anechoic chamber don't notice this (any more). Would there a psycho physical explanation for this? -- Vriendelijke Groeten Best Regards Ronald _________________________________________________________________________ Ronald M.
