Sound Quality & Jury Techniques

Register now

The Sound Quality of a product is important when assessing its total quality. For products ranging from cars to hand tools to golf clubs, not only the level but also the quality of the sound it makes is part of the customer experience. Many factors come into play in the sound quality evaluation process and need to be considered both subjectively and objectively. Traditional objective measuring and analysis methods, such as A-weighted sound pressure and FFT analysis, are not enough to analyze product sound.  Customer expectations and evaluations are important factors for determining Sound Quality because, in the end, only humans can tell the designer whether the product has the right sound.
