Re: 'pressure at the ears' visiting an anechoic chamber

I'm pretty sure that the ear-popping is due to the pressure change as the
door is pulled shut. The anechoic chambers I have been in have a door jamb
much like a tunnel. You pull the door shut and the pressure in the room
increases. I suspect our ears have very little experience with such
pressure changes in normal life.
