Listener Adaptation in the Control Room: The Effect of Varying Acoustics on Listener Familiarization

The area of auditory adaptation is of central importance to a recording engineer operating in unfamiliar or less-than-ideal acoustic conditions. This study prompts expert listeners to perform a controlled level-balancing task while exposed to three different acoustic conditions. The length of exposure is varied to test the role of adaptation on such a task. Results show that there is a significant difference in the variance of participants’ results when exposed to one condition for a longer period of time. In particular, subjects seem to most easily adapt to reflective acoustic conditions.
