Adaptation and Varying Acoustical Condition and the Resulting Effect on Consistency of High Frequency Preference

The ability to consistently evaluate the frequency response of a music program in a listening room is one of the most fundamental tasks required of an audio engineer. This study requires expert listeners to adjust the high frequency content of audio program under the influence of three different acoustic conditions. The length of exposure is varied to test the role of adaptation on such a task. Results show that there is not a significant difference in the variance of participants’ results when exposed to one condition for a longer period of time. However, some individual subjects exhibit adaptive tendencies within the temporal range tested.
