In an investigation of the acoustical insulation between the ears, various earphones and obturating devices were used. Bone conduction was shown to be chiefly responsible for the acoustical leakage between the ears. Conditions were determined under which interaural insulation could be increased considerably. Most of the measurements were performed with a compensation method which appears to give more precise results than methods previously used, and which permits phase measurements.
