The performance of the external ear, when viewed as a diffuse-field receiver, is given in a simple expression containing two acoustic impedances. In this sense, the external ear has a high frequency performance quite close to the theoretical limit. Viewed as a directional antenna the external ear is an acoustical wave processor of considerable complexity. Approximately eight normal modes spread over nearly three octaves are required to account for its distinctive characteristics. At the highest… CONTINUE READING
