Some New Evidence That Teenagers May Prefer Accurate Sound Reproduction
A group of 18 high school students with no prior listening experience participated in two separate controlled listening tests that measured their preferences between music reproduced in 1) MP3 and lossless CD-quality file formats, and 2) music reproduced through four different consumer loudspeakers. Overall, the teenagers preferred the sound quality of the CD-quality music reproduction, and the most accurate, neutral loudspeaker. Together, these tests provide some new evidence that teenagers can discern and appreciate a better quality of reproduced sound when given the opportunity to directly compare it against lower quality options.
