Masking-level differences and masked interaural time jnds were measured for a 560- and a 1000-Hz tone-burst signal. The masker, a diotic white noise, was interaurally time delayed by amounts ranging from no delay to one full period of the signal frequency. Results show that the size of the jnd varies systematically with the masking-level difference. Those masker delays which most benefit detection cause poorer signal interaural time discrimination.
