Sound Acoustics

Sound Acoustics: to whom it may concern?


This article about sound acoustics is written for readers who are sufferers of tinnitus, hyperacusis or meniere's disease. It is possible that some of those who have vertigo or dizziness will be interested in reading this article.

Acoustics Professionals

People who are professionals in acoustics may find this article not satisfactory for their needs. I agree with such a criticism. Sound engineers, sound technicians, audiologists and musicians need more.

Names of companies that sell specific professional sound equipment, prices of the products or commercial names of certain cables and connectors are considered basic information for professionals. Scientist in the field of physics need detailed mathematical formula, equations and definitions in a level that is not written here.

Tinnitus and Hyperacusis patients are not interested in all that information.

What is acoustics?

Acoustics in non-medical science refers to the physical aspect of sound and music.

The scientific study of the propagation (in nature, by electronic, engines or other artificial sources), absorption, active cancellation, reflection of sound waves in various matters is called acoustics. In the acoustic terminology, noise is considered an undesired sound. In science and engineering, noise is type of artifact. It means that it is an undesirable component that interferes with a wanted signal.

Tinnitus: unwanted sound

In humans, the tinnitus is unwanted sound. Knowledge of the terminology and principles in acoustics are important to the readers of the related medical literature.

Medical doctors, scientists, tinnitus or vertigo sufferers and people who are diagnosed as sufferers of meniere's disease who want to read the related medical literature, and research of tinnitus, vertigo and meniere's disease in the field of basic science can increase their spectrum of knowledge.

Science of physics

The components of acoustics as a science of physics includes the mechanics of sound waves, the ways to direct these waves, interaction of waves with waves and waves with objects.
