Additionally, recordings of the in-house Head and Torso Simulator (HATS) playing back an IEEE standard speech file were taken in an anechoic chamber, an acoustically treated room, and a highly reverberant non-acoustically treated room. These can be compared to highlight the impact partial and full acoustic treatment has on speech intelligibility.
We can also use this tool to create custom recordings of your product in different noise conditions, tuning configurations, or other impairments- for subjective evaluation without a trip to our lab. For dB-accurate reproduction we ship you a DAC and Reference Headphones with Comparison Tool files corrected for both the headphone response and binaural HATS Head Related Transfer Function (HRTF).
