Objective Scaling of Sound Quality for Normal-Hearing and Hearing-Impaired Listeners
A new method for the objective estimation of sound quality for both normal-hearing and hearing-impaired listeners is presented. It is based on three main parts: 1) Subjective sound quality ratings, 2) An auditory model, coupled to 3) An artificial neural network. The paper presents sound-quality predictions on two perceptual scales, clearness and sharpness, and compares these to actual subjective ratings.
