Subjective evaluation of auralization of physics-based room acoustics modeling
MetadataShow full item record
This paper describes the results of subjective evaluation of auralization by listening tests. The task was to compare real-head recorded and auralized sound samples. The evaluation process as well as the creation of soundtracks are briefly reviewed. The listening test procedure is presented along with the analyzed results of a case study. They show that with a simple room geometry (a lecture room) reliable and natural sounding auralization is possible with physics-based room acoustic modeling. However, there are still some modeling problems which are discussed as well as the guidelines for future work in evaluation.
