    I don't get it, really hear no difference. Does that mean I am broken or just hyper intelligent just like Mr C?

    Edit: Ooh: da da da da / ba ba ba ba

    But what does this McGurk effect add to real life?

    Indeed a very clear video. But the guy has been studying this for 25 years??!! And then people say we are wasting time with sim racing (known as the McG27-FFB effect) :D

    I discovered this topic some years ago when i was messing heavily with highend audio, blind testing and placebo effects etc.

    If you're into this Hi-fi thing you sooner or later will meet lots of people claiming to have uberhuman hearing, for eample hear differnces which do not even exist. It's pretty common that money is made upon beliefs of the customers, highend cables, highend DA converters, highend software players and so on, without having a proof that this stuff really is better.

    here a interesting website for the ones interested in this stuff:

    A sound test of my PC speakers and headset indicates I can't hear much over 12k in audio sound. The subtleties escape me but I can stiil appreciate:


    Damn, I really miss my Macintosh 100watt per channel stereo :mad:
