Loudness differences between different reproduction techniques
* Presenting author
Virtual acoustics and especially acoustic augmented reality do need acoustic calibrated outputs to match the expectations of the user. Furthermore, they need to provide a physical realism when used to investigate the influence of sound on the human being and behavior. Though in theory each reproduction method can be assumed to reproduce a perfect representation of the intended virtual source or field they each suffer from uncertainties or non-ideal elements in the reproduction chain. Measuring these influences cannot provide a sufficient perceptual evaluation. Consequently, a listening test was conducted to match different reproduction techniques (CTC, VBAP, HOA) to each other in terms of loudness.
