Subjects adjusted the rate of a binaural pulse train so that it matched the perceived rate of a dichotically alternated pulse train, in which successive pulses were heard in the left and right ears alternately. At low rates, subjects matched the total rate of pulses‐into‐the‐head. At high rates, they matched the rate of pulses in one of their ears. The crossover was quite sharp, and took place when the interpulse interval in one ear was about 100–200 msec. The results are discussed in relation to results with alternated and temporally segmented speech, and to acoustic short‐term memory.
