Comparison of Methods for Measuring Sound Quality through HATS and Binaural Microphones

Document Thumbnail

Sound quality techniques are currently becoming more important, as they take into account the human perception of sound. By now, there is no well established international standards for measuring sound quality and no well recognizable reference index for its assessment. Then, a HATS or a pair of binaural microphones can be used for measuring the typical sound quality parameters. A set of measurements, under the same conditionings, has been carried out using both devices for assessing the differences and the possible variation in the results. As a consequence of all this, a guidance is given for choosing the device that best fits depending on each measurement context.
