The Best of Oberon - Our Resident Technical Expert

Sound Transmission: How your windows keep your house quiet!
We are tuned to hear specific frequency ranges better than we hear at other frequency ranges. Our best hearing range is from about 1000 Hz to 4000 Hz and, coincidently, the human voice tends to range from about 400 Hz to 4000 Hz. Go figure heck of a design feature. Our voice range can go higher and lower than the frequencies noted, but the 400 to 4000 Hz range is generally accepted as intelligible.
