One aim of perceptual audio evaluation is to understand the relationships between individual sensory attributes and overall quality of experience. This paper discusses one perceptual evaluation method by which this can be realized. Open Profiling of Quality (OPQ), a method first introduced in the field of visual and audiovisual evaluation, involves psychoperceptual evaluation, sensory profiling, and external preference mapping stages and is suitable for use with naïve listeners. Here, a methodological case study is presented in which we discuss the implementation of this method and its adaptation for the comparison of audio reproduction systems.
