In this 60 minute online seminar, Listen’s Technical Support Manager, Steve Tatarunis discusses Microphone Measurement Basics.

Listen, Inc’s SoundCheck electroacoustic test system is used by the world’s leading OEMs and their contract manufacturers on thousands of production lines worldwide. Although it can be used for testing a wide range of devices including speakers, microspeakers, headphones, headsets, smart devices, cellphones and more, this seminar will focus on microphones.

  • Common microphone types and how they work
  • Microphone specifications
  • How to measure microphones using the two standard methods available in SoundCheck
    • Substitution method
    • Equalized speaker method
  • R&D and production test environments
  • Important measurements such as frequency response, sensitivity, etc.

Online Training: Basic Sequence Writing (European Schedule)

Sept 23 at 3pm Central European Time, 2pm UK time, 9am US (East Coast) time [Note: rescheduled from original date of Sept 8th]

The ability to quickly generate test sequences is one of the most powerful SoundCheck skills you can acquire. We are bringing a 2 hour basic sequence writing course to the comfort of your own home with our new online training at a convenient time for our European customers.

This 2 hour course is a condensed version of the basics of sequence writing from our popular 2 day training class. We will start from the beginning, explaining how to determine the test parameters and hardware that will meet your specific test requirements. We will look at best practices for creating a sequence, and finally we will assemble a sequence from scratch. This course is ideal for novice SoundCheck users, or those who have been using SoundCheck with sequences that others have written and who are ready to start developing their own. This training is free to support contract holders and US $79 for others.
