Re: painfully loud sound

Dr Depireux’s reply to the location of acoustic pain is interesting. The experiment is simple to perform. Anesthesia of the tympanic membrane can be achieved by any otolaryngologist in about 30 seconds with an injection of local anesthetic along the posterior bony canal wall. Thus expose to painful sound level before and after. Experiment completed.
