||Basepair, you fool! You'd need to keep
the coils in a fixed position relative to
your eardrums or the sound would get
||Good point. It may be necessary to
implant the coils in the fleshy bit of the
ear. Thanks for pointing that out.
||So the fleshy part of the ear serves as the speaker cone?
||Could your original idea be used to help people suffering from hardening of the eardrum? (if such a thing exists)
||Robinism - no, the plan was that the
eardrum acts as the cone (I guess
speakers generally have a fixed magnet
and have the coil on the cone, but it
seemed easier the other way round). I
don't know about hardening of the
eardrum, but you'd probably experience
some interesting bass if you walked too
close to an overhead powerline....
