Anyone have experience with using de-esser for sibilance in home audio system?

I've been experiencing sibilance over the past year and have arrived at the conclusion that it's my hearing. 

I'm wondering whether a pro-audio de-esser might help.

Does anyone have experience with this?  



but I do hear it through earbuds.

This is a problem.

Do you only hear it when a "S" or "SH" is enunciated, or do you hear it thru the entire vocal track?

Does it sound like a very high pitched hissing sound or more like a high pitched ringing sound?

OP, I'd still have your ears checked and taken out of the 'formula'....🤷‍♂️

Doesn't cost much, esp. if your health plan/insur. covers a regular check-up.

When mine began to go south, highs were the first to suffer....and tinnitus began to 'whistle/hiss' softly....don't know how old you are, but...if you find self going 'What?' more often to folks....

Just sayin', no ' j'accuse ' implied....;)

Meanwhile....back in the lab.......wonder how thin v. ridged, and if it's ferromagnetic...or could be....?

...or flexible...or translucent/transparent....?

...or a material you'd rather not see in a pissed-off bot...anywhere near you....😖


"A new way to let AI chatbots converse all day without crashing" (an article included in the above link) just makes me feel all warm inside...

Robbie and Rhonda's AI 'motivation minds' can chat it up 24/7/365.25 'bout how annoying their organic 'stupidvisors' can act and treat them....🤔🙄😒

I'm not paranoid, per se.....well, maybe...

Treat your cellphone nice...never really know what it's thinking, anymore...

If you drop me One More Time.....


S, T and P but S is by far the worst. No high pitched ringing, just ssshhhh.


Had hearing checked a year ago, when I first became aware of problem. I was told my hearing was better than average for my age and that nothing in the exam suggested a link with sibilance.

I could get it checked again. 

@stuartk ....(Watching Jon Stewart on DVR, but I've got my 'mental ears' still foke-assed....😏... ;)...)

Do...'better than average For Your Age' starts tossing flags on my field....😖

Saw my cardio recently.....spouse 'in tow', although that's a debate I won't have w/her.....( Asking 'Why?' indicates to yours unruly you're sliding into the POTUS debate of late {"Is he....capable?"}....[ the Chump is Better?!  Don't start me...I'll get most of A'gon locked down....]

I ramble.... ;).....Cardio sez I'm go to go to eat whatever I like, after having me on Jardinance....I'm not diabetic, my A1C is Fine, and @ 130ish, I'm comfy with the weight I get to trudge about with...
...which seems just to make her more 'noid over me.

I'm 72.6, agree with J.S. on his 'close-up' that...

I'm not happy 'bout This, either....but, I'll run what I've brung.

I'll try to keep in mind and hand that sooner than desired...I'm Toast.

I'll try to spare y'all for whatever goes with That.

Anyway....'chure, check the ears...  We seem to rot faster than we'd like to admit, and Yes, we try to blame the mirror of lying.

It can't.

My best, and best for the prognosis....Jerry.
