In 1992, Sasaki et al. reported that their subjects overestimated filled duration of pure tones under certain conditions. They hypothesized that the illusion was due to masking. If their hypothesis holds, the illusion will disappear when sound pressure of preceding tones is lower than standard ones. Thus in the present investigation, an attempt is made to check the reproducibility of the results shown by Sasaki et al., and to check whether the illusion is caused by weaker and obscure onsets of the standards.
