Temperaments

Equal temperaments where this comma is tempered with very high accuracy will have an interval corresponding to a "sharp fifth" of (ideally) 706.7 to 706.9 cents, corresponding to the range of fifths from 13/11 × 14/11 (→182/121) on the lower end and 11/9 × 16/13 (→176/117) on the higher end, and this interval is not mapped to 3/2. However, such temperaments are generally very precise, so 224edo, 270edo and 311edo offer slightly more manageable tunings. For less accurate temperaments still, 10648/10647 is notable as a comma of parapyth.
