In any critical listening area the properties of reflections occurring immediately after the listener receives the direct sound are of vital importance to the perception of sound quality. This paper covers some practical studies, largely related to the acoustical treatment of small listening rooms. However, many of the principles can also be applied to larger rooms. Measurements are compared to listening tests, where substantial differences in sensitivity are found.
