We will be exhibiting at the 139th AES which will be held at the Javits Center, New York, NY on Oct 29-Nov 1, 2015.
At our booth (#242) we will be demonstrating the latest release of the SoundCheck software, version 14, and the new SoundCheck 14.1 for Mac, as well as showcasing our entire audio test hardware lineup including the new AudioConnect audio interface and BTC-4148 bluetooth interface. We will be demonstrating how you can test virtually any type of audio or audio electronic device with the SoundCheck test system, and showing off some of the latest features of our software.
Steve Temme will also be co-presenting a paper entitled ‘Headphone Response: Target Equalization Trade-offs and Limitations’ with Christopher Struck of CJS Labs. This paper is first up in the P4-1 session (Transducers, Part 1) at 2.30pm on October 29th. In this paper, the effects of headphone response and equalization are examined with respect to the influence on perceived sound quality. Free field, diffuse field, and hybrid real sound field targets are shown and objective response data for a number of commercially available headphones are studied and compared. Irregular responses are examined to determine the source of response anomalies, whether these can successfully be equalized and what the limitations are. The goal is to develop a robust process for evaluating and appropriately equalizing headphone responses to a psychoacoustically valid target and to understand the constraints.
