Objective scaling of sound quality for normal-hearing and hearing-impaired listeners

Lars Bramsløw

A new method for the objective estimation of sound quality for both normal-hearing and hearing-impaired listeners is presented. It is based on three main parts: 1) Subjective sound quality ratings, 2) An auditory model, coupled to 3) An artificial neural network. The paper presents sound quality predictions on two perceptual scales, Clearness and Sharpness, and compares these to actual subjective ratings.
