Research Fellow Applied Psychoacoustics Lab, University of Huddersfield Huddersfield, England, United Kingdom
This workshop will first provide a comprehensive overview of the theoretical principles of various types of listening test methods with practical examples in audio engineering context. It will cover classic psychometric methods used for auditory threshold measurement (e.g. mAFC, staircase procedure, ABX, etc.) as well as audio quality rating methods from ITU-R and ITU-T. Important factors to consider for a successful listening test design will be pointed out. Some common misconceptions observed in subjective studies will also be discussed. Furthermore, an open-access universal listening test design framework called HULTI-GEN version 2 will be introduced.
