Title The correlation of subjective response data with measured noise indices of low frequency modulated noise
Bibliographic information May-June 1993, Vol.40, No.3, p.241-253. 26 ref.
Abstract In a subjective rating experiment, subjects were presented with pairs of low frequency modulated noise signals and asked to select which signal was more annoying. These responses were used to construct an annoyance rating scale. Comparison with existing measuring and modelling techniques showed that some recently developed models are more highly correlated to subjective response data than are the more commonly used noise measurement techniques. Additionally, increased correlation to subjective response data can be achieved by including the duration of the modulated signal as a variable in the models that predict annoyance.
