Staticky sound on quality speakers

I tend to suggest staying away from headphones and earbuds, at least for ultrasonics because you have to be exceptionally careful with the volume. If you're going to use those sort of things for ultrasonics, I suggest you calibrate with normal audio, and then reduce volume by 25 to 50%.

I'm now using both the masked and silent subs on my new open-air speaker. I have the volume where I like it for the masked subs. Will there be a problem if I'm playing the silent subs at the same volume as the masked subs?

Can the silent subs damage your hearing if you play them with the volume too high using headphones and earbuds?

RE: Staticky sound on quality speakers
The ultrasonics are specifically engineered to have as close as possible to the same volume as the masked track, so that you can (and should) use the masked track to calibrate your ultrasonic track's volume.

Ultrasonic sound is still sound. It will have the same effect on your hearing as any other sound. If you play it too loudly, it will have a negative effect. Since it is so readily perceived by the subconscious and volume is normal, it is fine to keep the volume at whatever the audible track calibrates to on those headphones, or 50%, whichever is higher.

RE: Staticky sound on quality speakers
Hey Shannon,

I'm using an older Phillips Hi-Fi System CD player, I hook my mp3 player into AUX. I'm wondering what range I could get with the subliminal? The speakers are about 10 feet from my bed.

Here are the specs: http://reviews.cnet.com/audio-shelf-syst...97580.html

Not sure I understand what you mean by range, but I'm guessing you are asking how far from the speaker the subliminals will be effective.

The answer to that question comes in two parts.

1. For masked subliminals it is as far away as you can hear the lowest volume areas of the track.
2. For ultrasonic subliminals it is as far away as you can hear the highest volume parts of the masked track, plus a few feet (a meter) or so.

Aside from that, it is volume dependent. Be careful to keep the ultrasonic track at a reasonable volume.

RE: Staticky sound on quality speakers
So you are saying that I should set the ultrasonic to the same volume level that I can hear with the masked track? BTW, did you get a chance to look at those specs above, just to make sure they would work correctly?

Thanks a lot,
Ryan

The ultrasonic subliminal track is calibrated to be used at the volume you are most comfortable with when playing any audible track. The masked version of the subliminal makes a good calibration tool for that.

I looked at them, but I don't remember the specs and the page is no longer available. I can look again but I need a new link.

RE: Staticky sound on quality speakers
I decided to post this question here rather than make a new thread.

I have an LG 37 inch HDTV, and I use my blu-ray player to play the subliminals from my USB flash drive. My question is wether or not this is a good format or do I still need to invest in some more speakers?

Popular recent questions to Shannon:

1. What are the "sniper modules" in V3.1?

2. What is "reality bending"?

Depends on the specs of the speakers attached or built in to your system

I have no idea what the specs are on the speakers, but I've been used the Absolute Confidence (masked) sub on it and got great results within 7 days. I'm just curious because I want to ensure I'm not gimping myself.

I'm sure it's totally fine for masked, just ultrasonic is the question

I found that if you play the masked version, and you can hear what sounds like voices between the waves (you can't make it out, but it sounds like someone is talking) your speakers should be fine for the ultrasonics.

RE: Staticky sound on quality speakers
Being able to make out speech means you have good audio acutance to the speakers and your ears. That is audio between ~120 and 4,000 Hz, and has nothing to do with being able to play audio that starts at 14.5 kHz and goes up from there.

Does that mean my hearings good?

Sounds like it - unless you're talking about earbuds or headphones. Smile

I hear the "voices" with earbuds and headphones too. But I test the speakers by how good I can hear the "voices" too. I'm glad my hearing is good.

Blue, without having the specs, I cannot know what the Hz range is. You'll find out soon, I'm sure.

RE: Staticky sound on quality speakers
Check these out guys...rated to 23 kHz and super cheap! Only thing is they run on batteries, which are rechargable with an adapter that comes with it tho.

They are portable speakers mind you. I like my CyberAcoustics because they charge my iPod as I use it.

RE: Staticky sound on quality speakers
Hey Shannon. What's up? Today I went to find good speakers for my alpha male set as the old ones exploded two days ago when listening to stage two, lol. Anyway, dude, it's really hard to find speakers that go from 20Hz to 20 000Hz here in Poland. I went to four stores and no one had any. The dude working at the last store I went to checked and said the best he could find was 33 Hz - 20 000 Hz, and it costed around 300 euro. He said that if I wanted to go as low as to 20 I wouldn't find it in any store and had to order it and it would cost a lot more.

I had to settle for 50 Hz - 20 000 Hz speakers for 60 euro. I hope that is good enough for the ultrasonics. But to get 20 Hz speakers is literally impossible, at least here. So I don't know, you said that it is what is average or pretty normal...I guess not here.
