fringing : A rise in the level of low frequencies when a recording is replayed by a tape head with a narrower track width than the one used to record the tape. Low frequencies from the recorded areas adjacent to those actually being played back bleed into the playback signal.
ringing : Any device, electronic or mechanical, is said to ring if it continues to produce a signal or to move after its input is stopped. Ringing, a type of transient distortion, is caused by too little damping, and is particularly prevalent in audio transducers. Low-frequency ringing is called hangover.
