Height Loudspeaker Position and Its Influence on Listeners' Hedonic Responses

Document Thumbnail

Height channels are used to enhance immersiveness and presence of reproduced music. This comparative study focused on possible impact of height-loudspeaker positions, coupled with room acoustics of a listening room, on listener’s hedonic responses. Moreover, the study aimed to discover a physical parameter that covaries with the responses. The results show that the position of height-loudspeakers is a significant factor that differentiated listeners’ hedonic responses. To determine the physical parameter affecting listener responses, the authors measured and simulated loudspeaker-to-listener transfer functions. The results show that hedonic responses associated with the height loudspeaker positions were correlated with the ratio between frontal and overhead acoustic energy.
