Excellent suggestion, Manfred. I don't listen to headphones but I have a friend who has a pair of those famous 80s(?) electrostatic headphones, so I'll ask him to bring them over next time he comes round.
But I wonder if headphones are a reliable source of sound for my experiment? When I last listened to these headphones, I could not cope with the illusion that the sound was located in the middle of my head - I'm used to there being a soundstage out in front of me, which has layers of depth. Possibly, being able to pick up reverse (absolute) polarity requires such a soundstage presentation, to be audible?
