Subjective preference for high frequency content in music program has shown a wide variance in baseline testing involving expert listeners. The same well-trained subjects are retested for consistency in setting a high frequency shelf equalizer to a preferred level under varying acoustic conditions. Double-blind testing indicates that lateral energy significantly influences high frequency preference. Furthermore, subject polling indicates that blind preference of acoustic condition is inversely related to optimal consistency when performing high frequency equalization tasks.
