I came across a song that has a sound that I can hear when listening to speakers but not headphones.
Before you bang out that reply telling me how crappy my equipment is, hear me out.
The song is Heir by Public Memory. The sound in question is a metallic tapping that begins at 0:33.
I tried several combinations of equipment I had on hand and the results were always the same.
Determined to solve this puzzle I started changing the position of the headphones. I found that if I took the headphones off my ear and pointed them at my ear from the front I could hear the sound!
I’m curious if other people experience the same thing or if this is yet another artifact of my messed up hearing.
