Thresholds for short-duration 1000-Hz tones were obtained from eight listeners. The rise-fall times of the trapezoid-shape tone pips were varied between 0-40 msec, while the equivalent duration was held constant at a number of values. It was demonstrated that, as long as the equivalent duration was unchanged, the rise-fall time had no effect upon auditory threshold.
