I was actually thinking about starting a thread today about women in audio (see photo) but then thought better of the idea.
I thought Enid was crazy when she first wrote about dirty power. I could not have been more wrong. I tried to find her after she left TAS but had no luck. I wanted to apologize.
she recommended removing the telephone* from the listening room? The thought of such a small speaker diaphragm having a sonic impact in the room mystified me.
However I was friends with Jud Barber of Joule Electra and he claimed his wife Maryanne could hear the filaments in a light bulb. So she could say while blindfolded if a light was turned on or not. Just because I can't hear something doesn't mean no one else can either. ;^)
*For you youngsters, that was pre-cell phone days when we had only larger land-line devices.

It's true that certain incandescent light bulb filaments do "sing". Some more than others. If you have one which "sings", and it's on a dimmer, you can actually vary its audible output.
Now you know.
I have a friend who claims he can hear ultra sonic alarms. That's why he can never take his wife shopping. Bother his ears too much.
"I have a friend who claims he can hear ultra sonic alarms. That's why he can never take his wife shopping. Bother his ears too much. "
From what I've gleaned it is not so much hearing but a sensation.
Related : Many years ago I read that they were adding AC high frequency bias to hearing aids. This after some hard of hearing reported being able to hear better in the presence of ultrasonic alarms.
I am pretty sure they stopped the process and I think I know why. Because that constant high frequency tears the cilia in your inner ear up even more, accelerating hearing loss.
ROFLMAO smart man
