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?

I'm curious -- how might neurofeedback address perception of sibilance?

Yes; I’m aware the TMR is a Weiss dealer. I can’t afford that dac currently but I may indeed end up trying it down the road.

That must be very frustrating. I will probably try a pro audio EQ, at some point.

@stuartk It has to do with where our brain puts attention on stimulus. It can be rearranged in priority and sensation.

This makes sense. I've come across a few comments by guys who've said once they became aware of sibilance, they couldn't "un-hear" it. Could be, this is what's happened in my case. At this point, I expect it, every time I encounter vocals. 

 

@stuartk I guess I would say, keep an open mind that it may shift again in your favor. ive had pretty intense tinnitus for 20 years now..I have memories of it disturbing me...but I also have no memory of it "in my life" for entire years. Other years, I wanted to see doctors because I was concerned it was getting worse. Finally realized it's just moving in and out of consciousness over long periods of time.

Interesting. And to what do you attribute this movement?
