[Phys-L] mon-linear ears.

A friend reminded me of a demo. at the Naval Postgrad. School, wherein an ultrasonic speaker generated wave is voice modulated in order to produce a rather narrow bean Tannoy. I presume it works by the ear’s being non-linear in amplitude response. Any idea if it would work W/a hearing aid that has no gain above about 8k Hz?

bc whose hearing is about 60 dB down.
