Investigation of Hearing Loss Influence on Music Perception, In Auditoria, by Means of Stereo Dipole Reproduction

The largest part of who seats in theatres or in auditoria has not an optimal perception of sound, because of hearing loss. So, in order to find out a correlation between objective parameters and subjective descriptors, executing therefore meaningful listening tests, we need first to study the perception of the customer. For this purpose, selected theatergoers, different for age, sex and degree, were chosen as subjects. The listening test was based on the virtual spatial recreation of several theaters, by means of an optimized stereo dipole technology. The test was repeated, for 30 subjects, with and without hearing aid, which was previously set to compensate the auditory loss. Some preliminary data analysis results are here shown.
