Consistency of High Frequency Preference Among Expert Listeners

Consistency is one of the most fundamental skills of the recording professional. This is particularly important in tasks that involve the shaping of timbre. A study was designed that allows expert listeners to control a simple shelving equalizer that alters the high-frequency content of high-quality stereo program material over repeated trials. Fifteen trained subjects performed the test. Results indicate that there was an expectedly large range of preference for high frequency content. This was, however, also accompanied by a somewhat large variance. Unlike previous studies, consistency of high frequency preference was shown to be less related to the subjects' experience than other balancing tasks.
