Headphone Measurements Demonstrations

In this short video, Steve Temme demonstrates two different headphone measurements with SoundCheck.

In the first demo, he measures a pair of Bluetooth earbuds in an open loop test to obtain frequency response, left/right tracking, THD and sensitivity. He also measures frequency response and sensitivity for the built-in microphone. In the second demonstration, he measures both active and passive noise cancellation of a pair of over the ear headphones with pink noise and speech.

These measurements are made with SoundCheck, the AudioConnect audio interface and the PQC-4149 Bluetooth interface. The SoundCheck test sequences to run these tests are available free of charge on our website.

Headphone measurements demonstrated include:

  • Headphone frequency response
  • Headphone left/right tracking (L/R tracking)
  • Total Harmonic Distortion (THD)
  • Sensitivity
  • Microphone frequency response
  • Microphone sensitivity
  • Active noise cancellation with pink noise and speech
  • Passive noise cancellation with pink noise and speech
  • Total noise cancellation with pink noise and speech
