Are You Hearing What I'm Hearing?
[Feature] In this article we summarize a number of recent AES convention papers, describing new findings relating to the perception of reproduced sound. These include the perception of auralized urban soundscapes as well as the interesting topic of how the blind might detect obstacles by auditory means. Further papers relate to novel methods for measuring speech quality, loudness calculation for objects in complex scenes, and the detection of sound signals at very high frequencies. Although there is no central theme linking these papers, they provide insights into some fascinating avenues of various kinds of perceptual research.
