Over-stress, excessive coffee, dental issues, etc, can be the causal point for forms of tinnitus.
Lowrider, consider the Teo audio cables, if you bother with the whole cable end of the pool at all. The actual act of conductivity really is different than wire (by any definition of the sciences and physics). It’s the first change in ’wire as transmission line’ in 150 years.
Thus (without getting into the complexities)...The sound is in the organic area, with excellent retrieval of rich detail, both micro and macro, speed, attack, all there..but none of the audiophile etched harshness. The better balanced a system is in this way, the more the cable reveals itself to be the correct choice for quality and neutrality.
Music as a visceral and real thing, living, moving etc, not the etched over-hyped punch up of exaggerated micro detail harsh distortions of the world of audiophilia... that is there to cover up the aspect that the rest of the system is mud.
The fight for music vs easy access to transient distortion that is mistaken for high end audio. Similar to the 5 minute romance of the over punched false and garish image... on a TV in a video store. It’s so bad that tv’s now all have a ’dynamic marketing sales mode’ for the video presentation in store.
People can buy into and can mistake audio qualities in the same way.
We don’t market or produce product for those mindsets or sets of hearing oriented in that manner. When people say our cables sound great, it is because they are looking for and reaching for reality in sound reproduction, not more falsified edginess.
Taras and I, the principles of Teo, are sensitive to this problem area and are aware that the false details and edginess is principally obscuring distortion, so it has two major faults. It tells lies and it covers up real signal. The liquid metal, in how it moves in conjunction with signal, removes a large amount of the problem areas in the transient LCR functions that wire itself has. As it is not an atomic lattice solid at all, it is a molecular level fluid at room temperature, and conductivity literally expresses itself differently. No hype, all physics.
This is slowly dawning on people so we are getting less and less vitriol thrown at us as people begin to ’get it’.
