An Evaluation of Click Detection Algorithms Against the Results of Listening Tests

Document Thumbnail

This paper evaluates the ability of several algorithms to detect impulse distortions (clicks) in audio signals. The systems are evaluated against data from a listening test conducted using real audio signals provided by a vinyl manufacturer. Some of the signals contained clicks due to damage during the manufacturing process. An evaluation of click detection algorithms against listening test results focuses on the ability of the click-detection algorithms to detect perceptible clicks. The results presented in this paper show that an algorithm that employs a hearing model detected audible clicks with a lower false detection rate than the other algorithms in the test and that the wavelet transform–based algorithm with a dynamic threshold outperformed the other algorithms.
