Headphones Listening Tests

In the present work a dedicated listening environment for the subjective evaluation of headphones is described. Focus is on the subjective sound quality of different headphones. The listening environment comprises a dedicated playback-system in a reference listening room. A software package consisting of 3 parts is developed allowing the design, execution and post-processing of headphones listening tests. First experience with this tool and results of subjective audio ratings for 4 different headphones are described. Factorial analysis of the obtained responses suggests that a projection of the ratings in a 2-dimensional factorial space results in negligible loss of information. The benefit of a new membrane technology results in significantly improved subjective ratings of the respective headphones.
