** I have never heard an earpiece produce low frequencies like 50 Hz -
but maybe it can be done.
Imagine a would be sleeper in a bed affected by a 50 Hz tone (like I
was). Ear pieces in both ears with the sense mic next to the top of the
ead - right ? Now, if the mouth is open the pressure in the ear canal
changes compared to closed, if the nose is blocked by the pillow the
pressure changes again. If the person rolls over in bed the mic is no
longer close to the head and the level and phase changes again.
To get even a 20 dB reduction no change more than 5% is tolerable.
I have doubts it can work - OK ?
