The just noticeable difference of reverberation time for Chinese subjects was studied using the Chinese music motifs as the test materials. Three subjects groups were tested, the audio technician group, the students from audio engineering department and a group of students without professional training on audio engineering and listening. The test was carried out with headphone in mono style to get the intrinsic reverberation perception. The psychometric method is constant-stimulus-method. The measured just noticeable difference of reverberation is higher than that reported in the study with western subjects and western music. The difference caused by different music motifs is insignificant, but the difference possibly caused by the professional training and experience of different subjects groups is noticeable.
