Highlights•Do low-frequency “bias” tones (BTs) suppress tone and click responses similarly?•BT-induced synchronization index (SI) was measured in cat auditory-nerve fibers.•After excluding BT excitation, click and tone BT-suppression phases were similar.•BT effects suggest systematic variation in hair cell transduction along the cochlea.•Distortion in IHC drives may account for auditory-nerve-fiber peak splitting.
