I buy it. This happens every once in a while in broadcast booths. His own voice probably got fed directly to his own headset, but there's a slight delay from traversing the audio equipment, so it makes it very hard to speak.
It creates an effect exactly like a drunk slur. There are apps/websites that will do this intentionally and you can record yourself for fun if you wanna try it out yourself (it's kinda funny to do).
Here is one app that does it (I've never tried that one specifically, it's just what I could find).
Yup. Check out Speech Jammer (that's the Android version, but there are iPhone equivs), it's a pretty interesting app that delays your voice just enough to make it really hard to talk.
It takes experience to talk or sing while hearing yourself on a delay, and even then it's really easy to screw up and suddenly lose all ability to talk.
I recall it was on a friends iPhone (using an app), with in ear headphones, perhaps one in or at least one partially in. Simple as that really. Probably available on the app stores, not got accounts to check out on iOS but it's on play store here for those not trapped in the Apple ecosystem.
Edit: Just installed it on my android phone to play with on the long drive home tomorrow, see if it works on the handsfree in the car... guess it's similar to headphones, kinda massive, immersive version. argh.
If you slightly delay your own speech, by talking through an app on your phone and playing it into your headphones, you wont be able to speak coherently let alone sing. The large stage and sound set up at the show was doing just this when the monitor went out. The delay of her track and voice would mess her up, singing without it was NOT an option.
Try it out;
Using the app talk into your mic while playing it through your headphones. Try doing this with a memorized sentence, you will still have a very difficult time. Singing was not an option.

EDIT: For those saying people sing the anthem all the time etc. The anthem is usually sung in large closed stadiums, the delay is alot longer than the ~200 ms required for speech jamming. Not only that, but anthems have been lip sync'd for a while because people mess up.
feedback from the actual stage and venue. If she spoke into the mic, the delay with which her voice came back would jam her up. With the monitor on, it keeps her sync'd up and able to focus.
Try it out, if you can speak a sentence while doing this, you are a hero;
Got some speakers? Wage war.
This is your rifle, there are many like it but this one is yours.
You wont notice it if you listen to music or video.
But you will notice it if you are running a real-time voice changer, or using as a microphone, you will notice the lag - to the point where you wont be able to speak, if you are hearing your own voice. For a demo of this, try the Speech Jammer app:
This become a worse problem if want to use your android device for real-time performance - for example using it for changing your voice, or using it as a guitar amplifier. You will not be able to use it on stage - the delay will be hugely confusing.
iOS devices have MUCH smaller audio latency (to the point of being nearly usable for real-time performance), because Apple has always emphasized audio from the beginning - plus it is not an interpreted layer upon layer OS like Android.
Android has serious issues with it's audio pipelines. They are trying to improve it a bit most recently with Oreo's new audio engine - but it had some serious issues in Oreo 8.0, and still has some issues.
Had some fun with this one make sure it's loud enough so you can't hear your voice only the sound from the headphones (of your voice (it'll make sense when you try it))
No doubt there's a similar app for iOS.
For those who don't know, he's stuttering because of a speech jammer app, which makes you hear yourself with a slight delay. Android app here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.icechen1.speechjammer&hl=en
I'm only on android but just tried this one out and its what is was on about
Not sure if they have the same on iPhone. It's super unsettling to do it. You need to wear headphones for it
Not sure if you commented before I uploaded but I made an edit and showed myself trying to say the rhyme and failing miserably lol. The default 150ms delay works on me
While he may look stupid, it is also insanely distracting. Especially if trump chooses to just repeat some of the words that Biden said.
You can try it at home with an app like Speech Jammer: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.icechen1.speechjammer&hl=en_US
>With SpeechJammer, you can literally "jam" someone's voice. Through the Delayed Auditory Feedback effect, the speaker will have trouble articulating while speaking, effectively inhibiting his or her speech!
> To put it briefly, the effect occurs when you hear your own voice at a slight delay. Many people tend to start mumbling, and therefore "jamming" speech. Works best if you try to read something!
From audience's perspective Biden would just be stuttering and stumbling and constantly looking over at Trump and the they wouldn't fully grasp what is happening.
I do not know the exact software but an android app speechjammer has a similar effect. You speak into it an it replays audio back but delayed messing up your speech.
But just googling speech jammer should found similar online software. That shit messes me up

You can mitigate the effects of the latency on android (by wearing earplugs so you don't hear your own external speaker, or just speaking in short phrases so you don't get confused by your own delayed voice).
There is another app on Android called Speech Jammer to experiment with just how audio latency can confuse the speaker. Latency is low on iOS - but the same developer has the app on App Store as well
Have you ever tried using an app like this? Headphone in 1 ear, phone in a shirt pocket and just leave it on all the time.
Try it yourself with this speech Jammer
Makes it super hard to talk.
Better yet, apply a 100-150ms delay... :P
I wonder if speechjammer would work
yes is it. Android, Apple
FYI, I ended up adding it to the request compilation thread:
>- Added June 28, 2015: [MF4A][Challenge][Req][Req-Fill] The H-Dub takes on the Speech Jammer. You all should do likewise!
> This is implicitly a challenge to do recordings using a speech jammer. Here are some examples of what this sounds like, and you can find speech jamming apps for iOS and Android. (There are likely other examples of such apps, these were the top hits I found via a simple web search.)
one can actually feel how it's feel like to be a stammer.. :
Is the audio delayed?
Could be an old speechjammer...
