A Comparison of Sensory Profiles of Headphones Using Real Devices and HATS Recordings

This study compares two sets of sensory profiles of eight headphones, obtained in two experiments, with the intent of revealing the differences and or limitations of these methods: The first experiment used a double blind approach with headphone auralizations and in the second experiment assessors listened to the actual headphones, as a non-blind experiment. The results of each experiment are analyzed and compared to reveal the differences, and causes for these differences, for each attribute.
