I was surprised by how well these cheap headphones I've currently got hooked up to my desktop comp worked, and not-as-surprised as I wished I was at how much my perception of hi frequency has dropped off. Getting old bites.

Well designed and fun to use - This page went into my bookmarks folder for future reference - thanks again Dave!

The link that I provided brings up a listing for what looks like the same product (It has the same logo on the front). Not sure how much it costs, though.

Here's a binaural recording from the early '70s that was made using similar dummy head technology.
